Lacks programming functionality

App disappointing as it’s not intuitive, and when you explore you realise all the various view options don’t allow you to actually program partitions or change your alarm setup beyond what the installer setup for you originally. It’s basically is just a viewer and an on off switch to alarm settings.

Bit clunky and generally disappointing. Doubly disappointing that you have to pay a substantial annual subscription for the app but still not get programming control of your alarm system. Perhaps developers are limited by the alarm hardware I inherited in the house purchase, and the only solution is to replace the entire system and app with a more modern alarm system.. ,

Good on iPhone/iPad but will not run on macOS

Works well on my iPhone but display size is limited (physically) so I want to run in on my M1 equipped Mac Mini, which is hooked up to a 24" display. The app downloads OK but, when run on macOS, halts with a message saying that the app cannot be used on a jailbroken device. Please can you fix this? It would make using and controlling Riscoh CCTV from a desktop feasible, which is currently not the case (due to limitations in the web based app). Another useful change would be for the app to remember the HD setting applied to cameras when viewing their output, rather than defaulting to SD whenever a new camera is selected to view.

Vi-Vi-Vi ,


The app is generally ok, quote responsive in my my experience anyway. The only issue I had was 3 weeks after installing the app it would no longer use face recognition upon opening and then prompted for a password, upon entering the correct password it kept saying it was incorrect.
I did ask support whether there was a way to schedule partial or full alarm, it’s been several weeks so I guess they are too busy or don’t deem my request important enough.
