This app is so bad how did they make it worse?

This app is so bad how did they make it worse? Ver 3.0 is a nightmare. No WAN support you can only access the cameras from the same local network. Bosch tech support is from Costa Rica (love the county) but the technicians have no idea what’s going on with the hardware or software. They are completely incompetent.

Developer Response ,


We appreciate your feedback. We would be delighted, if you could share detailed feedback about the issues you are facing with us via so that we can continue to improve the Bosch Video Security app. Please note, the set-up of an unmanaged site with more than one camera requires local network access to each camera. Cameras from different networks cannot be added to the same site. Once set-up, cameras can be accessed from internet/WAN given an external URL and port is configured.

Thank you in advance, your Bosch Video Security App Team

BVS doesn’t work

Unfortunately my iPhone updated the BVS app automatically. The PTZ doesn’t work at all. Ran test on camera and all seems good. Even when I login through web browser, PTZ doesn’t work. Very disappointed in the updated version. Older version worked great.
