Great system, not so great app

DW Spectrum is a great system. The App is easy to use, but it lacks features. The only events you can watch in the app are motion events. There’s no way to watch bookmarks. No way to bookmark a spot in the timeline. And the stream lag is so long that using a PTZ camera is almost impossible. Even when accessing the system from the local network I experience an unacceptable delay in the stream. For comparison, when using the Hik-Connect app, there’s no lag in the stream and controlling a PTZ camera in Hil-Connect is fast and responsive. The DW Spectrum app and desktop app does send commands to the camera very fast, and I can see the camera responding quickly to the command. The issue is the stream delay.

Question to the developers

Great app. Thank you. I was wondering if it would be possible to add a functionality to snooze an analytics event per camera? Say the customer wanted to use the camera to sense a person in the building and send a notification. In this scenario the schedule would not work because the building is mostly unoccupied and there is no set time of the day when someone could come over. In case there was someone in the building performing work in the FOV of the camera, the customer would get multiple events depending on the parameter set for the notification interval. In case the person was in the building for 10h and the notification interval was 1/hour the customer would get 10 notifications. This can easily become an issue because the customer would start disregarding them as being significant. It would be very beneficial feature to snooze these notifications per camera. Also manual unsnoozing would be great. Please let me know if a feature like this is on the roadmap. Thank you.

Updated review

Now you can navigate between cameras without returning to the feed list. This is a big improvement but still feels clunky not being able to swipe as you would in most other apps when viewing imagery or video.

Wish you could customize names of servers in the list - I end up with identical servers (one for when I’m signed into the local network and one for when I’m away) but you just have to try until it works because they are indistinguishable. Our security company says that’s just how it is.

Upgrade to server version 3 resolved issues mentioned in previous reviews, nice! Feeds seem to be reliable, no crashing.
