Ratings and Reviews

Great for free...


This is a useful app for me. I have extra iPhones laying about, and I installed this app on three different devices. I set up each camera (phone) with user name and password, then went to the local address on my iPad (using safari). The camera feed popped up right away and the image quality is great. The settings screen (admin page) is the only place you are able to turn on the flash or swap cameras, I thought this was available at the standard preview address, but I understand why it isn't (if I would give the address out to friends or family, I wouldn't want them controlling the settings). The admin adjustments seem a bit glitchy but still seem to work (I resolved my lighting issue with Phillips hue remote access lightbulbs, a great purchase and I highly recommend them). I was unable to connect to the phones over the Internet, but I am pretty sure this is a router setting that needs to be adjusted on my end. I am looking into this developers other associated apps and software to integrate with this app, but I am awaiting answers to compatibility questions (I have an older Mac).
Overall this seems like a great app for home surveillance or baby monitoring, I feel the app does exactly what it claims to do. Good job.

All around, great!


This app is one of the simplest to use and one of the more powerful security apps. Above all, I will say that the tech support for this app is unmatched. I had a question about mobile compatibility and they did not just answer my question, but talked me through it and even added helpful information afterwards. I'm extremely happy with the quality all around.

Easy to use and works!!!

This is the only app I have found that will allow you to use your iphone or ipad 3 as a security / video monitor that streams the video over ip and can be viewed from a web browser. You can access video remotely from your iphone, ipad or computer browser. Excellent app and great value.
