Mixed feelings

Looks promising. Or I should say, looks like it once was a great app that have been let down by it’s developers. Screen Ins’t even optimized for Plus sized phones! I mean, those have been out for a couples of years now.

I subscribed to the basic 7 days of cloud storage for 2 of my 4 devices. The subscription transfer to a different device do not work.

Setting up the motion detection is confusing. When looking back at my videos, it looks like a random selections of 30 seconds clips more than actual motion detection. I have ZERO confidence in its accuracy. Would not rely on this as a main security system. I’ll be very lucky if the motion detection triggers when a burglar comes!!

For god knows what reason I can’t go back further than 6 hours in my recordings even thought I’m paying for 7 days of storage. Maybe i have set it up incorrectly, nevertheless it’s really confusing. And I consider myself a very handy tech person.

Camera app crashes à lot on my iPhone 4s’s. Seems fine on the 5c.

Time lapse works when it wants to. Sometimes skips a day. Depending on it’s mood I guess.

There is so many things that are broken on this app. It need a major cleanup. Heck, I even think that my subscription won’t get billed to my account. Which I don’t mind at all since it barely works. Even that is broken.

Shuts off randomly

The latest update causes the camera to malfunction and not work meaning i have to reset the app almost everyday. This was not an issue with the previous versions. When it works it is great but too many times it goes offline by itself.

Frequent false alarms

Been using for a few days with a retired iPhone 4S as the surveillance camera. Bought 1 month cloud service for person recognition, cloud storage, timelapse, etc.

Problems are:
1) FAQ to sort out setup and troubleshoot not working. First received 404 error then after a few days nothing happens when you click a FAQ item.
2) false person alerts every few minutes even with detection set to “low”... a “never cry wolf” scenario. 3) Timelapse appears to make you wait the full 24 hours to view - no ability to pop in to check it incrementally.
There were unexplained disconnects from wifi but that may be my network and not the app.
If I can’t determine what causes the false person detected alarms - where NOTHING is moving in the field of view - then I’ll delete the app.

Developer Response ,

Athome Video Streamer v4.0.6  already support humen sensing !  When you set "People Detection Alert" in Athome Camera v4.3.0 ,you will receive the notification only when detects person from video streamer , much more accurate than traditional motion detection.
