Note: This app uses a data stream that will connect to your Swann Smart Security Camera via 3G/4G or Wi-Fi. When using 3G/4G, the video from your camera will likely be considered "downloads" by your phone service provider and will contribute to any download limit your phone data plan may have. If you exceed any plan limits you may incur additional usage charges. Consult with your mobile service provider regarding the use of a video streaming app and how it may affect your plan.

Awesome app

This is by far the best battery camera on the market today. The app is great and very easy to use. Would love it if they had the ability to have multiple cameras on a single cloud storage plan. Would also like 60 days of storage. The camera could wake up a little faster but I guess that might hurt the battery life which I think is pretty good right now. The new app is much better. Overall I really think the camera is a winner.

Thank you very much for your review and feedback, we're glad you like the new and improved app. Currently we do not have any plans to change to a multi-camera cloud subscription, but we do try to keep our cloud fees as low as possible per camera and you have the option to just subscribe one, some, or all cameras.

Camera good but app and settings lacking

I have both type of outdoor cameras and the bullet type is much better than the Arlo ripoff battery design. When it comes to the app, the app looks ok but wish it had more camera settings and robots that allow you to tigger other camera(s) when event triggered. I’ve found recording is spotty and records most events within range but will totally miss others even set at highest sensitivity. The worst part is trying to get app to view cameras, you will need to reboot app consistently and it will eventually work. This seems to be an app issue. It’s workable but if you are in a rush to view camera, good luck! When you top that with it missing events all together, it’s very frustrating.

I will say though overall, especially when compared to Arlo pro systems, for which I have had, the video quality, price, trigger sensitivity is far better. If Swann would work on app and give us more options I would give it five stars.

1.11.1 version

I downloaded version 1.11.1 yesterday. Everything seemed fine at first. Then, I switched to “Home” mode which I have set to disarm all of my cameras except for one. I worked in my yard after that and the cameras were disarmed as they should be. Then, when I was done working I switched modes back to “Away” so that all my cameras would be armed again. And this is where we have a problem. Even though the app says My system is in “Away” mode and that all of my cameras are armed, only the one camera is actually armed. The other cameras are stuck in disarmed mode amd I cant get them to arm again. So , basically version 1.11.1 just turned three cameras into expensive wall decorations. Any suggestions on how to fix the latest gaffe from Swann?

Developer Response ,

Dear Customer. We have released another app last week that offers further improvements to the Modes issue. This version should help solve many of the issues you have noted above. Apologies that you've had a poor experience. We continue to work hard to deliver you the best experience possible.
