No ONVIF ability
I have 7 Wirepath cams and 2 Foscams. The Foscams work fine with the Wirepath NVR and can be viewed using web browser or direct HDMI connection to the NVR, but when viewing the NVR from this app, it will only allow me to view the Wirepath cams and not the 2 Foscams which is a problem. If the NVR supports ONVIF, the app should be able to make those ONVIF connected cameras viewable through Wirepath NVRs. The app also doesn’t allow viewing of ONVIF even if you add it as an individual camera that’s routed to the Wirepath NVR. I feel this was intentionally crippled so that users are forced to purchase Wirepath cameras in order to achieve full functionality of their system on the app. Also, the app’s recording playback functionality works only sometimes. Most times it either crashes the app or just gets stuck in buffering (this happens even when I’m on my home network which the NVR’s hooked up to directly as well). I’m positive it isn’t a bandwidth issue as I’m running 150Mbps up/down. Lastly, when viewing cams individually and accessing the SD cards, when clicking an image, it requires me to go back to the list and back into another image. It should really allow for a swipe motion for next image. It also sometimes gets stuck showing the image as completely blue. To resolve this I have to force close the app and try again till the images appear proper.
All in all, the only thing that really works consistently for me is simple viewing the cams without trying to utilize any special features.
Crash crash crash
Please fix this app! As an AV installer I can't sell or use your product if you can't have a working app. I have a wirepath bullet camera and when I entered the dns address it default me to save it to NVR. When I open the NVR the app crash. It will let me save the internal IP address to IP icon but then I can't use it offsite. Your company have good cameras but please spend some time to fix the app!
Hire a User Experience person for all your apps
Wirepath / SnapAV apps are functional, but really not very usable. Let’s start with the name. “WPS-IP-HD” - how does that begin to describe that it’s mean to control Wirepath / SnapAV IP cameras and NVRs? Now let’s start with some basic use cases…. 1) Find something on the camera recorded yesterday between 10am and 11am. Do i really have to search every 3 minutes, the defaults resetting to the current time every time? I can only see motion events from the last 12 hours even though there are more on the NVR? Make this easy.
And god forbid I have to use my computer to search my NVR. OS X support? Nope. Only 32-bit Internet Explorer via an Active X control. Ouch. 1998 called and wants their software back.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
