The cameras worked well for awhile in the app, and now two years later and it’s still randomly recording and having to be restarted. I have three cameras. Two with a 3 days worth of recording package. The last week it won’t record or at least it’s not showing a recording for more than 6 hours. I’m paying $80 a year for two cameras and the recording is never consistent. I’ve contacted cs multiple times and their solution is to delete the app and reinstall. Then I was told to put it on an unsecured address. Not. How about fixing the app. If it’s still not right when my contract is over I won’t be renewing. I have had a contract for two years so I’m not a newbie who doesn’t know what to do.

Can't log on to remote cameras after closing and reopening.

I tried to use this app to manage cameras both on local and remote locations. I added multiple cameras manually using the IP address and external port. There was no problem installing the cameras, changing configuration and updating firmware. The problem is when the app is closed and reopened, I am not able to log on to any of the remote cameras. I added the cameras a second and third time with the same result. When the app is closed and reopened, it's impossible to log on to any of the remote cameras.

UPDATED: Per developer recommendation, I uninstalled cameras and app on my iPhone Xs then reinstalled the app and cameras using DDNS rather than IP. Unfortunately, that didn't solve the problem. As an FYI, I have been using IP Camera Viewer for many years to view the same cameras without any problem. I wanted to use the Foscam app because it offered more control over the cameras and makes firmware updating easy. However, I can't seem to get it to work on my phone.

Dear Lawrence of Oakhurst,

Thanks for your feedback.
Can you please check if you used DDNS and port to add your camera to the app?
We confirm this method will work after you close and re-open the app.

Zero stars really

Can I give zero stars? Nothing but trouble since I first set up this camera. App is really only for the higher end cameras and the purchasing of the cloud storage is bate and switch what you actually get. Now after this latest update, camera no longer works. Nothing will log into the app, won’t connect to the WiFi and won’t take a wired Ethernet connection due to the fact that the camera came from the manufacturer without a name and password on the back of the camera (needed for a wired connection.) I’ve rebooted so many times, uninstalled and reinstalled the app a dozen times, NOTHING WORKS. So, I’ve only tried to use the camera and their laughable cloud service for 3 months and it’s been a disaster. No help after 2 weeks of contacting them. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AS THEY HAVE SEVERAL BBB COMPLAINTS AGAINT THEM.
