Ratings and Reviews
An excellent companion app for Security Spy
Remote Patrol has been a great add-on to Security Spy. Its fast and reliable performance has been great, and gives me added incentive to expand my Security Spy installation. The current version requires different IP addresses for local network and internet viewing, which is a minor annoyance since it requires entering a different IP address when leaving the house or returning home, but I give it a 5 star rating for it's overall utility, speed, and stability, and the fast developer support by email. I hope a future update will allow a single IP address to work locally and remotely.
I asked about an app-specific lock screen for Remote Patrol on the iPhone, which would be great for people who don't use the Apple lock screen but want more secure access to Remote Patrol. The developer said the iPad version already includes this feature, and that he would add it to the list for future updates - good quick response :-)
Update: the new version 2.30 is even better - it's much faster, the previous annoyance regarding needing different IP addresses for local and Internet viewing has been fixed nicely, and the developer remains very responsive to requests for help/improvements. I'm changing my review from "excellent" to "indispensable" companion app for Security Spy.
A must-have for SecuritySpy users
I agree with most of the comments for this app. It's a must-have companion app for the excellent Mac software, SecuritySpy. The interface is initially a bit confusing, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be using it all the time.
I had a bunch of questions about its operation and contacted the developer. The developer is extremely responsive-- I received helpful information back in an hour or two (and it was over a weekend!)
I especially like the push notifications that I now receive from my cameras. Highly recommended!
Great Product Excellent Support
I have been using Remote Patrol for several years. It has always been a great companion to Security Spy with each upgrade providing good improvements. One of the major components of any program is the support that is provided. Remote Patrol provides exemplary after purchase support. Rob provides immediate, personal service. He provides personalized diagrams with instructions that makes setting up Remote Patrol to work with Security Spy very simple. I can’t say enough good things about the program and service that I have been provided.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
