Bit slow

Sometimes this app is quite slow but works most of the time. A feature that’s missing is a panic button where it triggers the system siren and alerts the users.

Overall Morepork is a very underwhelming experience. I also have a ring which is a much better product. If only Ring would offer their security system in NZ.

Can't do much with this app

I don't think that much of the morepork set up online. The only reason it gets three stars is because I can at least arm and disarm. However I can't change any settings, our alarm activated itself randomly and when I went to enter my master code it said it was invalid on the main system. At least I could turn it off on my phone. But can I set my master code anywhere, no - I think if we finger print Id ourselves to get into the app we should be able to change master code settings.
