Too long of a wait for motion detection
I applaud the developers of this app and would like to use it and take advantage of their other security devices but there is one major shortfall preventing me from that. It appears that even with Pro, it isn't possible to set the wait time for recording following motion detection to less than 5 seconds (even though 1, 2, 3, and 4 are on the selector, it keeps springing back to 5). My driveway is 75' long, but both the UPS guy (walking from the road) and the lazy cat from next door get almost to my porch before the recording starts. I back down my driveway from the road, all of which is in the camera's sights, but only see the hood of my truck as it disappears beside my house. All I ever see in these recordings is the tail end of what just happened. This is all with detecting "normal-sized" movements. It would benefit from shorter wait times on motion detection (at least in the paid version, although a competitor offers this for free) and also a detection grid to limit triggering by things that will never be significant like wind-blown tree limbs (also offered by a competitor).
Went to a wedding in Maine brought the dog and stayed at a hotel. The morning of the wedding my husband and I went down to breakfast at the hotel as we left the room the dog started scratching and whining at the door. I was horrified thinking how are we going to spend 5 to 6 hours at the wedding while the dog scratches the door in the hotel room. Then I remembered friend at work showed me videos on her phone of her cat walking around at her house that were being taken while she was at work. I downloaded the app on my iPad and phone and was able to videotape the dogs actions while we were out of the room. Thank God because we were able to see that the dog just lay down and slept while we were gone. If not for this app I would not of been going to the wedding thinking the dog was going to wine and scratch the whole time we were gone so needless to say" I love 💜this app" and we had a great time at the wedding. And honestly the possibilities are endless.
Public Safety Monitoring
I use three old iPhones to monitor the Gulf of Mexico waterway. People who live more than a mile inland are able to see Tweets to determine the water conditions on the Gulf, which can be much rougher then inland canals. To do this professionally would cost well over $10,000. I am doing it at the cost of old phones making it easy for an amateur to hook up and provide services for Public Safety.
Loved this program until they did upgrades late July causing my cams to no longer Tweet to Twitter. I sent multiple emails, went through a series of shut down this and do that's as suggested and still nothing has worked to make it Tweet. Definitely a different attitude than when I first started using their app and was helping promote it. It is now worthless to me for monitoring the weather and tweeting for community boating. So disappointed.
