Excellent! Reliable and good

I’ve only used the free version but I was able to discover the various ways a pirate cat was using to defeat our programmed cat flap, get inside and eat our cat's food. I used an old iPad as remote camera, the response was fast and the video good. Now another old device has become a security cam with images going straight to cloud storage. Time from motion detection to notification seems to be immediate. Excellent app, easy to use.

Sadly leaving

After several years of being a Presence Pro customer, I have removed all devices and logged out for the last time. Too many glitches, generic standardised responses from customer services and no improvement on any of these issues. I have invested in two Blink cameras instead and they are now installed as my new monitors. To Presence Pro, you have the potential for an incredible platform. Many people have subscribed and all they ask is for you to invest in the app. Infrequent updates, crashing, freezing, camera contrast all make for a frustrating user experience. Invest some time and money in fixing these issues... give your customers the service they pay for.

Does what it says...

I've found this app to be the best thing for use of old iPhones, iPads and the like, for recycling as security cameras,- why pay £70-£150 for a dedicated camera when you can use your old stuff? One thing you need to remember is to stop the auto-update setting for apps, as this will trump the Presence app on screen and render it "off". Brilliant app, just don't make it too complex with too many useless features!
