Ratings and Reviews
Edit: The latest update made the app useless. I pay this company a monthly fee for their cloud service and I can’t even use it on my iOS devices on which I’ve installed the latest update. They also fail to reply to any emails requesting support. I’m dropping my 4-star review to 1-star. Very disappointing.
I have (5) Foscam, FI9831P cameras set up on the perimeter of my residence for security. This app and service is a simple way to (cloud) record any activity on my property, whenever the cameras detect motion. This app and the system is nothing fancy and it could use some improvements, but for the most part, it does what it's intended to do. With this app, I can view and/or save the motion events that have been recorded to this cloud service. The live view of cameras through this app is not as reliable as the recordings, but I use another app for live viewing anyway. The monthly recurring charge for the cloud service is a little too expensive in my opinion, but It's easy to setup and seems to be reliable, so far.
Sketchy App, no support, poor functionality
First of all, do some research on Foscam. They are a Chinese company and very disjointed with different business units and distributors. Support is non existent for this service/app, only an email address that never responds.
If you are not a home networking enthusiast, forget it. Assigning static IPs, forwarding ports, and FTP set up are just a few of the tasks you should be prepared for. It’s simply not easy, and if you do get it working, the actual functionality is garbage. The Live view never works, always choppy even with fast wired connections. The app itself is really only decent for monitoring triggered events and viewing and downloading the video.
Foscam itself says this app is managed by a third party and Foscam Digital Technologies is not actually Foscam. They sent me to Amcrest, who said they had nothing to do with it. Amcrest said it was Foscam US...who knows? Unprofessional and faceless.
It says they record video, but really for me, it's more of a series of photos. If someone walks up to my camera, and then leaves, I'll basically just get a "video" of their foot as they leave the field of view. Yes my capture mode is set to video. Other apps are able to record an actual video.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
