  • Great app to use with Blue Iris!

    By encheritto
    I would have given 5 stars but the look of the app is extremely dated. I think it’s time for an update.
  • Great NVR App

    By Nick in Arkansas
    I have used other DVR/NVR apps and they aren’t as good as this app.
  • Almost there...

    By Blaze138
    It could be better considering the price they charge.. But even the simplicity of the app is not user friendly at all, there’s other apps that yes cost a little more but offer A LOT more... Try CMS or Transcendent or Vitek... You’ll never look back...
  • Good when it works

    By j11181p
    Seems like every other update breaks the notifications. Not much use if I can’t be informed when the motion detection trips.
  • Can we get an update?

    By Weirik
    Push notifications have been broken for months! App leaves a lot to be desired in terms UI but the broken notifications really makes the app darn near useless for me.
  • Great App

    By Jakadia
    Love the app, very powerful. I wish there was an AppleTV version!
  • Push notifications no longer works

    By Tmsd23765
    The push notifications no longer works running blue iris server on windows 10 and Apple devices
  • No response from support

    By FirstAid84
    App seems to be what I am looking for but I can't tell because it's not connecting and support isn't responding.
  • Great for Blue Iris or HomeSeer users

    App is great. I use it along with HomeSeer and so far I’ve never had an issue in over 2 years
  • The last update broke outside connection

    By ssnui
    I forward port 9443 to the web server, after the last update the app stopped working from outside (it still works if I was inside the house). Every time I edit the connection and add :9443 at the end of the WAN address and save it, as soon as I hit Connect the app removes the port in the address (if you hit Edit you can see it has been removed). Fix it!
