Get access to Sighthound Video remotely. Sighthound Video software has been trained to simulate the human brain’s recognition abilities. It doesn’t just detect motion like most other security software - it detects and tracks people. With this app you can view your cameras remotely, be alerted to people who have triggered rules you set, and search through clips of camera activity. You must have installed Sighthound Video on a computer connected to your IP cameras before using this app. Get the software at the Sighthound website if you haven’t already. You’ll soon see that the software’s ability to detect and differentiate humans from animals or other objects greatly reduces the number of false positives and unnecessary alerts sent to users, which can make even the most modern security cameras unusable.

Sighthound is the first video security software to work seamlessly on computers, iPads, and iPhones. After installing the software on your computer, it finds most cameras automatically, and you are using the desktop software in seconds. With the Sighthound Video iPhone app, users can benefit from the intelligence of Sighthound away from the home or office.

3. Live Feeds: See what’s happening at your place on your iPhone or iPad in real-time.

Good when (if) it works

Like others, I agree that it is in desperate need of an update. As it is now, it is unreliable. Half the time, a camera cannot connect. Other times, clips won’t play. I have this on my iPad and iPhone. The iPhone version works better. I can’t wait for the rumored update coming.

New design, same lackluster features.

The design of the old app wasn’t the issue, it was it’s lack of basic security camera app features. Now we get a superficial facelift that is still missing the features that users have been requesting for years. Why is the app limited to only playing back events that match rules? Why can’t I scrub my entire recorded timeline? Why is there a lack of Picture in Picture support when it has been available on the iPad since iOS 9? Why can’t videos or snapshot be saved to the camera roll? Why can’t I set the size of the windows in grid view? Why can’t I configure the resolution of the camera previews in grid view? So far the only 2 new features that I’v been able to find are support for dark mode, although you can’t manually override it, and support for split screen. The developers should be embarrassed by this release. Catch up or get left behind. I’m looking for other options.

Please please update the app

The service and features of Sighthound on the computer are great BUT the app has lagged behind and not been updated for sometime. Missing features, still doesn’t support larger FaceID devices either in full size or with the FaceID login.
Slow to render and see live video. Near impossible to see video history.
Please update the app. I’d love to keep the service but I can’t warrant paying for the support or updates of the main software if the iOS app doesn’t get maintained.
