Are you looking for a better Foscam camera app that is easy to use and respects your privacy? Get OWLR's free Foscam IP Cam Viewer!
*** FASTEST GROWING THIRD PARTY FOSCAM VIEWER OVER FOUR YEARS***
Want a better mobile Foscam app that's easy to use, consistantly stable and designed to respect and maintain your privacy?
The Foscam IP Camera Viewer is made for (almost) the entire Foscam Family of cameras with this privacy focus in mind. Unlike other apps, OWLR DOES NOT keep personal data on the OWLR servers. This ensures that your cameras are safe as a baby monitor, front and back door monitor, home security and store and small business surveillance - and you should be safe and secure using them.
While we release infrequently, we are focusing on creating the best app we can and constantly work with our users to make it the best we can.
Some of our user's favorite features include:
CAMERA AUTO DISCOVERY
Our smart auto-discovery feature detects your Foscam IP camera and completes setup in less than 30 seconds - given your camera is on your home network!
DEFAULT / WEAK PASSWORD CHECK
With hackers accessing cameras that have not had their default passwords changed, OWLR checks and confirms with you whether or not your external cameras have secure passwords!
NATIVE IPAD SUPPORT
OWLR is great for the home security camera enthusiast or a new parent wanting to keep an eye on their baby with our iPad wide-screen matrix of your networked DLink cameras.
AUDIO LISTEN AND PUSH TO TALK
Speak to your pet, listen to the sound of your baby sleeping or speak to the delivery guy at the front door - all from your phone.

After eighteen months and a pandemic later, Johnson Mc Johnson here - FINALLY making an update on the app!
Due to the pandemic and much lower investment, our team are so dedicated that we have been operating on a volunteer basis - still working to develop and improve the app.
In this version, we have worked on
- offer to port change when your camera's ports are on unsafe ports that could be hacked or conflict with others
- dark mode form values being unreadable
- stability and improvements since our last release for iOS 14
With these updates, along with our normal bug bashing, we look forward to the smiles that come with a new update for you.
We are still kicking and developing and still searching for partners and investors.
Thanks for being with OWLR and remember…
Ratings and Reviews
Very good app
Easy to setup, and easy to use.
One flaw that I have found is that if your password contains special characters the login will fail. I have not tried all special characters but the % if used in your password will make it fail.
The user that stated he doesn’t want to provide admin credentials and they are required is incorrect. It can be an operator or guest account. I think the error message given during the login failure makes you assume it requires admin but it doesn’t.
Good app and free!
I’m literally SPEECHLESS! I’ve had an in-home daycare business for 25 years and rely on my Foscam camera’s daily. I have four of them set up throughout the house (Front door, Playroom, Crib room, and Cot room). When I purchased them years ago, the Foscam app that allowed me to view them were very difficult to set up. You could only view one camera at a time and it was frustrating. They later came out with a new app that allowed all camera viewing screen or individual and the set up wasn’t as difficult. Copying the camera’s to another device was a nice feature not having to do the start up process all over again for a different device and not too hard to do. I’ve used that one for a few years now. I just updated my device to a new one and noticed I couldn’t use the Foscam app to view my camera’s. Confused, I went and looked for an updated app and found this one. Wow! Set up on 3 different devices INCLUDING external viewing of my 4 camera’s was a BREEZE! The app quickly found all four camera’s, put in my Foscam user name and password and that’s it! I can view all camera’s at one time, individually, set it up for motion detection, full screen option and more! Thanks so much for such a wonderful app, free I might mention too! I love it and appreciate the speed and ease of set up saving me time during my very busy day:)
Developer Response ,
Lisal - - thank you very much for the awesome feedback. We appreciate it!
Got Foscam, Get OWLR!
I recently purchased and installed several Foscam IP cameras. I was impressed with the camera hardware but as many others have mentioned, the Foscam app leaves much to be deisred. My biggest frustration with it being the sluggish performance when accessing the cameras remotely as well as some stability issues. I did some searching and came across OWLR. What a huge difference! The OWLR app is rock solid (very stable). The setup was a snap. The performance on the LAN could not be better and the performance externally is very good. The support is also very responsive and top notch. I sent a message in asking about the status of alerts on OWLR for Foscam and I got a very prompt and professional response that alerts are in the later stages of development. I look forward to those new features being incorporated. I'll probably dump the Foscam app altogether once OWLR alerts arrive.
