Note: This app uses a data stream that will connect to your Swann DVR via 3G/4G or WiFi. When using 3G/4G, the video from your 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
Technically it works...
Technically, the app works. It took forever to get the setting right to be able to view on my phone, and then, when I got it working, the picture is really choppy and delayed about 3-5 seconds. It makes it tough because I wanted to use this app for my business so I could watch for shoplifters without standing in front of a desk. Oh well, back to the screen for now. Maybe in the future Swann will put out a better app.
Quality Poor & App is Down Completely
Better off using a Nest camera or Digital Watchdog. This system has always had issues with slow connections, poor quality, and terrible watch back capabilities. Ive been using, regretfully, for 5 years. Now the app isn’t working for iPhones, tablets, nor Androids. This is due to them not keeping up with OS updates since they prefer to be a tech fossil.
One time I attempted to contact support and got nada help. My alarm company doesn’t help much either.
Bottom line...don’t waste your money, or time. I’m looking forward to canning this system soon.
I've called the 800 number and if you follow the phone tree they end up hanging up on you. I'm a customer in the US. We got this system from WOOT almost a year ago. It took forever to get the iPhone app to connect via 3G and 4G. but once it was working it was fabulous and we used all the time on iPhone and iPad. now with the app upgrades everything seems to have failed. 800 support is not reachable. the iPhone manual on their website is from a year ago. Very disappointed. If i get it working i'll be sure to post the solution. good luck. nice app if you can get it going.
