Updated app 2 days ago

When I first installed it, it worked fine. A couple of updates happened since and now…. Every time I close out the app (or reopen a minute later) it seems to lose the device and I have to log out completely and log in again just to get it to reconnect to the system/devices.

Not to mention the lights on the cameras pop on and off ALL day and ALL night long whether or not there a person/human/face etc causing movement or not. (I have adjusted the setting and doesn’t fix the issue). Needs an option to shut off the individual camera lights from randomly popping on and off or for indoor use should a user/owner want to. Night vision with the cameras are not an issue.

Wireless system generally user friendly

Usually good picture & sound

System in house records for playback vs paying out for video storage else where.

Night vision

Lights come on and off all day & night with/without cause.

Camera’s (all different areas at different times) randomly “ Device ready for use.” No power issues/internet connection issues.

Currently app/system having issues

Other than a few hiccups.. needed fixes… over all a sound system/equipment.

Update…Lose my wifi connection on my iphone

After troubleshooting with my Internet provider I discovered that night owl system causes me to lose Internet connection on my phone. The night owl app is causing it. How to stop this from happening… other than not all wifi connection to the app…does anyone know? Seeing all the reviews kinda concerning… is there any humans in tech support at night owl to help with this???? Also no recordings are made by system. And yes app takes forever to load to view once you get an alert forget it… by then person who attempted entry could be gone. What is this? A joke??? I wish we hadn’t spent the money or time….

Update: We are finding that it takes pics of random stuff claiming it’s a human, face, or motion. Also…Our dog is a “vehicle”… but the pic does not show our dog. When you are actually out and about around the cams it is very few notifications. Also it’s 2 min slow in response. Kind of alarming if someone enters property.
Still have not figured out how to record. Customer service not helpful and info in package and online isn’t very helpful.
An alert when someone turns off system would be nice as well. Very costly for something that is not very precise with alerting or recording.

So far it’s great

Just replaced a 7 year old night owl system with the new 8 channel 4K wired cameras. Setup was very easy. I had one glitch in the app after installing, 24 hrs after installation the app said that said no device added and couldn’t connect. I reloaded and is fine as of now. I have one bad camera that the light and night vision doesn’t work, I tried another camera on that channel and it works. Waiting to get a email from warranty department on replacing after calling this morning. Only con I would say with the camera system is that the cameras themselves although very clear picture compared to my old 720k, they seem very cheaply made. The old ones were all metal and strong, these are all plastic and very light. Only time will tell how they hold up to the elements all of which were fully exposed, the 7 year old cameras I had were still in good condition after going through all the years of temperatures as low as -6f up to 110f and in direct sunlight, heavy rains and snow.
