Brilliant App


As other reviewers have stated, the lower rated reviews are down to improper setup of the Hikvision equipment. I.e not using static IPs for the cameras, not having a decent internet connection with a good upload speed so the live viewing on a remote device is not laggy or impossible or not port forwarding properly which would impact users wanting to use any features of the app or web UI from outside the LAN. No problems with the app at all, cameras can be sometimes a little slow loading live view on 3G/4G depending on the area I’m in but that’s down to my phone signal and the quality I am streaming at and is no reflection of the app whatsoever. But if you are using the app all over the place and often it might be worth considering scaling the quality down slightly which is doable from the app so it will load up every time without fail, even if the signal is a bit iffy where you are. The only thing which I still haven’t worked out on the app, is to be able to play let’s say 2 channels at a time on remote playback syncing the same time and date, rather than having to select the time and date you want to playback for each individual camera.

Easy when set up right


All these 1 star reviews make me laugh.. If you pay a professional installer to set up equipment as it should be then you will have no problems at all! Installed thousands of these in our company and don’t get any complaints about the app! “Can only get it working on WiFi” in other words you haven’t got port forwarding done properly.. “it only worked for a few days” in other words your IP address has changed and you’ve not used a DNS host for your recorder.. “Sometimes only some of the cameras load” in other words you’re either in a poor signal area for your phone or your internet where your recorder is installed isn’t very good! Personally I think it’s a pretty good app.. I have over 40 sites stored on it! Only annoying thing for me is that it keeps the box ticked of the cameras you’ve previously had on when you have so many sites it can be annoying but if you only have one or two sites this is very handy!

Utter Rubbish


Again like so many others, was sold all the hardware with promises of it being an easy install. Got all the hardware connected and all works fine. Downloaded the App and had hours of messing about until I got it all working. Except I could view camera's from the app unless on wifi. Following day and having done nothing, I can suddenly view them when on 4G. Great I thought. 3 days later and my phone updates the app. All my Data lost. No camera's logged. Try to set it back up and it now says my password is wrong and it doesn't recognise my user name (phone number). Try and create a new password and it says error. So now I'm locked out of the app? Rendering it useless. For all those 'professional' installers, I've installed plenty of other wifi controlled devices in the house. And they all all work fine; house alarm, central heating, smart lights etc. This App is utter crap. I would not advise buying Hikvision but by the time you get to looking for the app it's probably too late.
