Ratings and Reviews
The old Foscam app is by far better than this totally useless app. It’s unnecessary for Foscam to force you to establish an account, just to view your cameras on an app. This app is buggy, slow, unreliable, poorly designed, crashes often, doesn’t support multi-viewing of more than one camera at a time. I have eight Foscam FI9831P cameras and I need an app that will allow me to view four cameras at a time, in landscape mode. This app won’t do that. The original Foscam app supports viewing of four cameras at a time, in landscape mode, but the morons in charge of Foscam software have decided not to support the old app and came out with this garbage. It’s insulting how Foscam makes countless claims on the capabilities of their cameras, but once you spend the money on purchasing them, you’re left with this atrocious app to try and manage your cameras with. I’ve spent a LOT of money on Foscam equipment and I expect an easy, solid, reliable app to manage my cameras, not this garbage. Listen to your customers, Foscam. Go back to supporting the old app or provide a new, reliable app to manage your cameras. This app is a total failure.
I have three FI9800p security cameras and within the application, I have named each differently; however, every single time in the Notification Center I get this:
“FI9800p detected abnormal motion at 10:00”
And that’s it! So, which camera?
Therefore, I can never find out which camera detects motions in notification center. Hence, I must open the application. What makes matters worse is that when I open the application, I still don’t know which camera has detected motion. There is sometimes only a note above the screen saying “FI9800p detected abnormal motion at 10:00”. I still have to open each camera separately to figure out which one recorded most recently.
This is such a terrible & confusing user interface.
Folks! If Arlo works in your country, NEVER hesitate to choose Arlo instead of Foscam!
DEVELOPERS: Please AT LEAST make the notifications more dynamic. LET US FIND OUT WHICH CAMERA DETECTS MOTION BY MEANS OF NOTIFICATION CENTER!
PS: the application gets logged out quite frequently (at least once in a month). So I have to log in again! How can I find out I got kicked out? Well! I, myself, need to be more vigilant like when I don’t receive notifications for a while! —> see? Is it fine? Really? What if something happens during the time that I am not logged in. Why do I have to log in again & again?
Very useful app
I am new to Foscam so I am unaware of what the old app was like. However, I honestly ordered many different cameras (wanscam, Yi, amcrest etc. ) in order to find the best combo between app and camera. I found the Yi app to be nice however the App Store had recently removed it and they released a new Yi light app which was ok. The Yi camera itself didn’t have Ethernet capability and the range for WiFi wasn’t as good as Foscam in my opinion. Foscam was by far the best camera and camera app combo. I find the app to be exactly what I was looking for. I am not sure why it has only 1.8 stars. Maybe that is from people who had the previous Foscam app, like I said I am new to Foscam so I have never used the old app.
