Playback not jerky


I’ve used a similar app for surveillance before. It’s playback was smooth. I could recognise someone by the way they walked.

Hik-Connect has jerky playback & that’s regardless of my internet connection or device. Any day. Any time. Playback is jerky. It skips moments as your watching it. One minute you see someone next minute they have fallen over or they are off screen. Or the car accident happened and you can’t see moment it happens cause it’s skipped it in playback . Jerky playback.

Pretty good app


I use it with my NVR and hik-connect wifi doorbell. However, where the iPhone version allows you to intercom to the doorbell, this version doesn’t seem to let you. Having intercom (ie answer a ringing doorbell ) on the iPad would be a great feature to add to my wall mounted iPad that has all my home automation and CCTV integrated... please include. Thanks.

Nagging “rate us” window


The “rate our app” window pops up multiple times every day, and often gets in the way of actually answering the door... which is the one and only time I want to use the app. Poor experience.
