App No Longer Working

Our issue was fixed after we rebooted our main computer system back to the factory settings and set everything up from scratch again. We can now see our live views on the app and it seems to be working correctly although we still have sporadic issues with getting the “oops, something went wrong” message. Overall, we are happy with everything.

My app used to work great but all of a sudden yesterday it stopped. I can no longer see the live view on the app or get notifications or look at the timeline history. I tested the Wi-Fi connectivity through the app and it says it is good. My main computer is working fine and is recording like it is supposed to. I have rebooted the router like the Lorex troubleshooting states and I have even deleted the app and reinstalled it. I have checked that all firmware is up to date and yet nothing is working. It is very frustrating.

Sir Vid ,


Just bought a new Lorex system at Costco because I had a prior Lorex system at my last house and liked it. The system itself is great and I’m happy with the cameras and other hardware so far but the Lorex Home app is disappointing. It works nice on my phone but there is no iPad version, only the iPhone version. My last Lorex system must have used another app because I was able to use the iPad to view the cameras. You can load the iPhone version on an iPad but the dimensions keep the phone dimensions so you gain nothing in screen size by using your iPad! Furthermore, and even more importantly, it seems that you can only login to your cameras on one device at a time. If I try to log in on the iPad (despite the small display) it logs me out of the iPhone. When I need to quickly check my cameras because something might be happening, I don’t want to have to log in again because I was logged out by using another device. I didn’t have this issue with my prior Lorex system (which used the Lorex cloud app I believe) so I’m not sure why a newer system has a worse app supporting it.

I know Lorex can do better! Please upgrade the Lorex Home app to have a native iPad version and also allow to login on more than one device.

Hey Sir Vid, Lorex Home now offers device sharing option, to allow different accounts to view a camera. To set this up, please tap the three dots for the camera you would like to share, navigate to 'shared users' and follow the on screen setup. Thanks!

Only Moderately Useful

1. only playback option is 1/2 speed, so event or timeline videos take 2x the time to review. also makes the sound function completely useless, because 1/2-speed sound isn’t audible.
1a. If you want to advance the video, there is no option for 2x/4x/8x/16x speed so you can see what’s happening- you have to advance to a specific time and the app reloads the video EVERY TIME. If you went too far, you need to randomly find another time to load up again, but still you don’t know if you missed anything. So you end up watching everything in 1/2x. It’s the most maddening waste of time.
2. none of the configuration settings especially motion & zones work in the app- don’t even bother, absolutely frustrating exercise. Only works on the desktop.
3. The auto-captured events are near useless too, if there’s one event, it gets broken up into smaller videos, and still activities are missing. And again all load separately. So you end up going to the timeline and suffering through that. Still only 1/2 speed anyway too, so back to 1/1a.
