It’s OK Devs need to worry about fixing cameras
The app is alright sometimes it can be a bit slow. What I absolutely dislike about this company is their lack of customer service it can take up to 2 business days until you hear back from them and they always have problems with the owl cam not connecting to your phone. At first they told me it was a battery problem the camera shuts off when battery falls below 12v however most vehicles that are 2+years can have their batteries lower than 12v while parked. After buying a brand new battery for a new vehicle that I didn’t need to initially the owl cam started to “connect” pass 3 weeks and the same issue is happening, I know it’s not the battery or the vehicle they are both new car is under 11k miles let’s see what their “customer” service will say to this. OH don’t forget when you call them Physically be prepared to wait 15-20m to have the robot tell you sorry all agents are busy right now leave a message you’ll never get that reply. Their app also seems to be broken as mentioned before the devs really need to worry about fixing the user to admin chat when asking questions rather than worrying about the layout and design. I’ve been with owl for over a year and a half now and the camera is only on or works for about 70% of the time. Their “bump” detection also does not work got two dings on my vehicle due to a hit and run and owl never picked it up at all (talk about having a good camera)
Needs serious improvement
I’ve been using this app with my camera for over a year now. It was ...ok... at best but for the last few months it’s really gone down. Looking at live view or your history is such a pain, with the quality being so horrible you can’t even tell you’re driving, and multiple attempts to even get your history to play when 90% of the time it’s just a black screen. Also, in the past I would get in to my car (which would set off the motion sensor) but as soon as I start my car it would read “driver recognized” and not send any alerts to my phone. Now whenever I get in my car I get multiple notifications about “movement detected” and “possible damage” as well as an incredibly blinding light that lasts about 20 seconds. It’s incredibly frustrating and makes me want to just unplug this camera. Only good thing about this camera now is that when you say the command to save a video clip, it saves the clip in perfect quality. But is that alone worth such an expensive price? I’m beginning to think not.
One year later review....
Don’t buy this product! Instead of improving with software updates and hardware revisions, this product actually has gotten worse. From day one there has been an issue with Bluetooth connectivity and the Geo fencing area that the manufacturer still refuses to address. Because of this you will receive an alert every time you enter your own vehicle. No one needs a notification to tell them they’re entering their own vehicle! The manufacturers fix.... advise you to turn off the notifications. :( This defeats the security features of the camera. Not only defeating a security feature but the manufacture is still advertising this as one of their main selling features, deceiving customers. Their newest hardware revision took what was originally a very sturdy camera mount, a solid camera housing and replaced it with cheap injection molded plastic. Their newest revision of the camera and mount is now cheap, flimsy and extremely prone to vibration. This newest revision now means that a lot of your footage is going to be unusable. What they also don’t tell you unless you read the fine print is that they restrict the amount of footage you can download from the camera. Restricting you to only getting video clips that are just a few minutes long. Do your own homework and research, but I would definitely not recommend buying this camera.
