Note: This app uses a data stream that will connect to your Swann DVR via 3G/4G or WiFi. When using 3G/4G, the video from your DVR will likely be considered "downloads" by your phone service provider and will contribute to any download limit your phone data plan may have. If you exceed any plan limits you may incur additional usage charges. Consult with your mobile service provider regarding the use of a video streaming app and how it may affect your plan.

App works great on iPhone but not on iPad


This app works well on my iPhone 6 but is very unreliable on my iPad Pro. I have had to remove the App multiple times and reload it. It works for a while then stops, and automatically closes itself. If it does stay open it does not even try to connect to the device and hence the video feeds do not appear. If I remove the app and reinstall it, it works for a couple of days and then stops.
The app works well on my windows 10 laptop.

My wife has exactly the same experiences as I do on all 3 of her platforms.

Please address the complaints and issue an update to make the app more reliable, this is for a security system and many of us rely on it to keep our loved ones and homes / businesses safe.

The NHD-855 and 856 cameras work really well. The night vision is amazing. Installing the system was as easy as 1;2;3. I would recommend this system.

To slow to connect


I used to have Swann software with my old system it was fast to connect but this app is taking to much time to load and keep checking for nothing some time stop working as well . My internet is working very fast even though app is too slow . Please make it fast to load and us update.

New update slow to load


Since the latest update in late March 2017, the app has been very slow to load, sometimes not loading at all. This is on unlimited NBN so not internet problem. Not good if you hear a noise and want to check
