No remote access, no iPad support

Once you leave the house, DW Mobile DOES NOT CONNECT! In these days of much less expensive home monitoring, I have found that I cannot access my camera views from anywhere except my house, unlike ADT, SafeLite Home, Apple. DW Mobile does not support remote access! Unbelievable!
Earlier versions of DW Mobile supported streaming on iPads. New version does NOT support mini iPad (version 2) and iPad support is unreliable, live streaming works less than 1 hour! Incredible. The tech staff at DW Mobile App are terrible and do not offer any solutions. DW tech staff acknowledge that earlier versions of DW Mobile App worked on iPads, mini iPads quite well but subsequent updates eliminated many features! Terrible app and horrible support.

Garbage app

Force closes all the time. The buggiest app ever. Sure wish my security company would use a different app. Very non user friendly for mobile devices. Not all features work on the phones. Seems like the company needs to invest a little more on someone who knows how to develop an app that actually works as it’s supposed to.

Works great

Initially it seems awkward. But once you learn how to switch between sites (push and hold until the image “jiggles”, then drag to the display screen) it works very well. Also, it helps to learn the trick how to drag windows around to change the order of the cameras on your display. I like it a lot.
