Note: This app uses a data stream that will connect to your Swann NVR/DVR via 3G/4G or WiFi. When using 3G/4G, the video from your NVR/DVR will likely be considered "downloads" by your phone service provider and will contribute to any download limit your phone data plan may have. If you exceed any plan limits you may incur additional usage charges. Consult with your mobile service provider regarding the use of a video streaming app and how it may affect your plan.

Ratings and Reviews
I spent $1200 on an NVR Camera system 12 months ago and have struggled with this app big time! My parents bought a Swann pan tilt camera for $100 that alerts their app when there is movement. Why does this app not have alerts like this! It’s about time a new app was offered with better features.. I can’t even record footage that is saved to the NVR to my phone or iPad unless it is happening live! So frustrating! I have email alerts set up through my NVR and just receive blank emails half the time. Please upgrade this app!
Most unreliable app, for a reputable product
So, so frustrated with the instability of this app. Your products have a decent reputation and people spend good money on them. Especially with the presumed promise to be able to monitor your home/business remotely via your apps. Yet, it would seem very little effort or money is invested in ensuring your app remains efficient, up to date and of quality - to back up your product and deliver on what your app claims to be able to do - without constantly failing. I wouldn’t purchase a Swann system again, just for this app. I cannot monitor anything right now as the app just constantly tells me login failed. I’m also over trying to get help from Swann. People should read the app reviews online before deciding to purchase.
Good functionality, minor issues
On reading other reviews I thought I was in for trouble. My experience has been very good. The app is easy to use and has the key functions of the primary interface. I use the app for internal and remote monitoring and it works well.
The camera channels are listed and reported by via their system issued numbers. This isn’t ideal as the user assigned name would be better.
The attachment of pictures to the email notification is not consistent.
Easy to use an intuitive app. Thanks.
