App not working

The app is not working just bought. Cameras followed all instructions. It worked at first, but once connected Internet and open the app to view cameras I get a message saying Oops Something went wrong Please check the Internet connection For your phone and device. Update. My app is up to date still same issues. Not only that but it says cold night vision all I see is black and white even with ambient color. It’s morning more sun is coming up still black and white. I can’t schedule a record without having the app. And there’s no rewind for play back. One camera keeps getting disconnected and keep getting false notifications every 5 min saying it’s captured a face and or human pay back there’s nothing there. I wish I could return them or at least trade in for something else better. And it too bad they don’t have any ptz cameras.
I know I can’t return it to the store since it’s past a few weeks could. I return it to the manufacture for a full refund since I’m Jaír completely satisfied??

Garbage software and service

Have spent months yes months working with this company to solve recording issues with their product. First if you are having an issue adjusting the zone sensitivity for each camera under record settings it’s not just you. We tried it on 4 different phones and the system will just reset it to medium if you set the lowest setting. They tried to play it off as a phone issue. Nope. Ultimately they didn’t address the issue and implied a refund and then recanted because it went past 30 days even though we had been working the issue. To make matters worse during the troubleshooting they shipped me a replacement nvr and put it is a large usps mailer box with absolutely no packing material. Ultimately this was not a fix. This system will say it sees a face or car when there is nothing there. The main reason I wanted to adjust the sensitivity. Just so you know they use the same software on all their kits so I would avoid them all together. If I could give 0 stars for this company I would. Absolutely terrible experience and product.

Update: I have confirmed that the sensitivity adjustment issue is had by other customers as posted by other reviews. If you have one of these systems try and adjust the sensitivity under the camera. If you set it and come back it will likely adjust itself. Initially it was doing it to the next level up but now it does it on the lowest setting. It will adjust to medium.

Avoid this App, Company, and their Products

This is possibly the worst surveillance system you could ever invest your time or money into. I spent the past few days to make this system work and everytime I had an issue there was no simple solution. First off, this company wants you to primarily use their app to use their product. This is a problem if you set up your system manually before attempting Bluetooth. Essentially, you can get locked out of the system. The product does not have a physical factory reset button, which is a big issue when you get locked out. The technical support contact system is also poor. Calls are ended before they go through to the representative, and the callback option rings for a second before they move on. I tried searching for an FAQ or instructional guide to reset on my own, but there were no resources available. Thankfully the chat support technicians are more reliable than the phonecall support, so they were able to talk me through the steps. The app has poor cross-platform connectivity. If you do something on the website, the app won't register it (such as registering a device). Personally, this app and their products are not worth the trouble. Save yourself the hassle and go somewhere else.
