Note: This app uses a data stream that will connect to your Swann NVR/DVR via 3G/4G or WiFi. When using 3G/4G, the video from your NVR/DVR 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.

Ratings and Reviews
It used to work
About 2 years ago maybe longer, this worked perfectly. I had iPhone 6 Plus used phone for live view and if I needed to go back I could but I preferred to use computer for that feature. Every year I buy a new iPhone. Switched to 7 plus no problems. Then I got the iPhone X. App totally quit working. I can’t view any cameras at all. Just upgraded for XS Max same result. Can’t view cameras. But very sadly my hubby has THE competitors phone 🤮 and he’s switched phones 3 times and no problems for him. So it seems to me that this company has put in its time and energy in the competitor and left the iOS users high and dry. We have the better tech and Swann is lazy and has dropped the ball. So since we were going to add cameras we will NOT be purchasing Swann again and have to get their competitor. I have a star for each phone it worked on. I’ve never given below a 5 review. Was a good product and awesome app but we have been abandoned by Swann.
I just installed my system tonight. First of all, it took several hours to get the WiFi camera to connect. No instructions on how to configure the system for a WiFi camera. All the video hep clips on Swann’s website skip over the network and internet configs. After searching for 2 hours, finally found a video on Swann’s website (the video help tip wasn’t even for my system) for another network video recorder that explained what I needed to know in order to configure the NVR in order for the camera to connect wirelessly. As for the app, I have tested the motion and I do not receive any push notifications. I think I might just go back to the old school way on installing a camera system.
It works for my purpose.
Everyone has their own expectations and purposes for using this app. For me; I just want the ability to view live feed. And you know what? It works flawlessly. Actually, I’m happy IOS11 forced me to switch swann apps as this flows better than the last one.
Of course, I haven’t tried recording and what not, and don’t plan on it. If I need to go back ‘in time’, I’d rather go to the base station itself and use a keyboard and mouse. If it’s serious enough for me to pull records, I won’t be sitting on my iPhone doing a looksee; it’ll be reviewed on a big screen.
