Get access to Sighthound Video remotely. Sighthound Video software has been trained to simulate the human brain’s recognition abilities. It doesn’t just detect motion like most other security software - it detects and tracks people. With this app you can view your cameras remotely, be alerted to people who have triggered rules you set, and search through clips of camera activity. You must have installed Sighthound Video on a computer connected to your IP cameras before using this app. Get the software at the Sighthound website if you haven’t already. You’ll soon see that the software’s ability to detect and differentiate humans from animals or other objects greatly reduces the number of false positives and unnecessary alerts sent to users, which can make even the most modern security cameras unusable.

Sighthound is the first video security software to work seamlessly on computers, iPads, and iPhones. After installing the software on your computer, it finds most cameras automatically, and you are using the desktop software in seconds. With the Sighthound Video iPhone app, users can benefit from the intelligence of Sighthound away from the home or office.

Good when (if) it works

Like others, I agree that it is in desperate need of an update. As it is now, it is unreliable. Half the time, a camera cannot connect. Other times, clips won’t play. I have this on my iPad and iPhone. The iPhone version works better. I can’t wait for the rumored update coming.

As everyone has mentioned, this app is outdated and slow. It cost me a onetime fee of $250 for a Pro license (unlimited cameras), and $50 per year for support/updates. This would be justified if Sighthound Video’s SDLC wasn’t so slow. I doubt Sighthound Video generates significant profits compared to Sighthound’s other products (ALPR, Redactor, Sentinel, Cloud API, IO), so I can see how it’s a lower priority, but it’s been over 3 years since the iPhone X was released, and the UI still hasn’t been updated for larger iPhone screens! I wouldn’t be surprised if they abandon Sighthound Video altogether — they’ve definitely abandoned the iOS app.

Please please update the app

The service and features of Sighthound on the computer are great BUT the app has lagged behind and not been updated for sometime. Missing features, still doesn’t support larger FaceID devices either in full size or with the FaceID login.
Slow to render and see live video. Near impossible to see video history.
Please update the app. I’d love to keep the service but I can’t warrant paying for the support or updates of the main software if the iOS app doesn’t get maintained.
