The app is available for both Android and iOS devices (iPhone, etc.).

The app supports connection via P2P cloud account, live viewing and playback to name a few.




Favorites saves a view (layout) of cameras in the order and stream quality being used.

How to save a favorites:

  1. First, select a layout (2x2, 3x3, etc.), load cameras into the empty channel slots (yes, they can be from more than 1 NVR).
  2. Next, click the "Favorites" button at the bottom.
  3. Lastly, give your new favorites site a name and save it.

That's it. When you go to load live cameras, choose your favorite site name you saved and it will load it as you saved it.



To playback video recorded on the NVR with the app, tap the menu button and click "Playback". This will bring you to the Playback screen.

Once the "Playback" page is displayed, tap on "+" and select a camera and then select a date & time from an accessible NVR to search video from.

After the video loads it will automatically start playing.

From the Playback screen, click the "Camera+" button (top right corner). Next, tap on the NVR name to drop down a list of connected cameras. Choose one or more cameras by click the "O" on the far right of the camera. To select all cameras from the NVR. Tapping it again will not unselect all cameras.

Another new feature that has been added is the ability to "split" the playback time line. What this means is, initially starting with your first time selection, you can "split" that camera's recorded video and look at a still image 30 minutes apart. The time line can be split up as a 4 split (2x2) or 9 split (3x3). Once the images load the first time it's been split, it will display the start and end time of the split. From here you can click that time line and choose a different starting and end time, splitting the total amount of time evenly between the split time line (images).
