I knew it was going to be different...

Coming from the Arlo cameras I knew this system was going to be different, but not this much... cameras work great, definition is there but the app LACKS so many good essential features. I wanted an “upgrade” but can’t believe this app is missing so many good features, even from the gen 1 Arlo cameras which is what I’m coming from, YES! gen 1... Why not have only one screen with all 6,8,10 cameras in it? Can’t put cameras in the order I want, I have to swipe to next screen to see the camera I want to see. Can’t adjust camera brightness from the app, landscape mode? Nope not supported... you can just play and pause recorded clips and select live view from the app, anything else forget about it... the technology is there is just not put to work for some reason. This camera system/app needs a total revamp. I think i’m returning this system and getting a new Arlo... I really want to like this camera system and app, cameras are wireless, easy to mount, easy to install and super easy to sync and range is pretty good but I just can’t keep it with all these simple features missing right now. Hope Night Owl listens to customers concerns and try to deal with them. Thanks in advance if you do.

Looks like Night Owl is listening! We’ll look for future updates, 😎 thank you!

Login Fail

10/30 Update: I went from getting push notifications all day long to nothing at all. Not a one. I prefer being notified all day long than not at all for security reasons, especially at night and when no one is home. I don't know what happened. Feels like the developers were trying to fix something that wasn't broken and now can’t fix what they broke. Shame because I really love the quality and features of the cameras. If only the app would follow suit. 2 stars for the camera. 0 stars for this app.
Aside from setting the sensitivity to the lowest setting I get notifications all day long when the leaves on the tree blow with the wind...annoying but at least I know it works. Tonight, for some apparent reason, I stopped getting push notifications and I only noticed because I heard a slew of cars driving by and found it weird that my notifications weren’t going off. Appears I wasnt logged in so I tried logging in. Nope. Login failed. Reset a dozen times. Login failed a dozen times. Must be an issue with the app? No idea but not being able to check my cameras is not providing me a secure feeling. Hope it gets corrected sooner than later. Annoying.

Our current application has to be restarted to apply the new type of Network connection, if while in Wifi it works best, whenever this connection changes to a cellular network, then the app itself will need to be restarted to refresh the connection.

Thank you for your patience.

Does not work consistently

First of all, the cameras work great. But the app is so bad, half the time the cameras don’t do me any good. I deleted the basement camera off the app months ago because the only thing it ever alerted me to was the wind blowing! I tried adjusting the sensitivity but that did not help. One day, my alarm started going off, but alas, I had deleted my basement camera and could not see who had set off my alarm. Fortunately it was my housekeeper but that could have been bad! The front porch one is not as bad, I’m assuming because the wind is more blocked by the porch roof. But on the Fourth of July, the alerts were incessant. It was just my flag blowing in the wind. However, a lot of times, the app will not load at all. So, if an actual person was on my porch, ringing my doorbell, I would not be able to get it to load fast enough to see who it is. And in the last couple of weeks, the app stopped working all together. Now it just spins. My cameras are now totally useless. A bunch of people worked really hard installing these cameras for me, not to mention, I paid a lot for them. If this does not get resolved soon, I will be forced to shell out another couple hundred bucks to buy more cameras that are a different brand and hope if those nice people will come back and install them for me.
