Ucam you are not doing yourself any favours.
For the developers information! Your app is set to HD! On my phone. please stop redirecting the fact that your app could be a lot better! In my opinion,as a customer!! Your app is not doing the camera's justice.
I emailed customer support who were fantastic, they were able to access my camera remotely and sent a detailed email reply where I had gone wrong !. The camera was back up and running, really delighted with the service and impressed with the camera. From the time I emailed them and the camera fully working it was about 30 minutes max!.
So pleased I'm going to by another one for the back of my house and one for my garage.
I've now purchased my second camera. All set up within an hour really pleased. Again this is hard wired. I plan on buying a third which will be wireless from my garage using the earth cable as a network link. ( Have tested it using this second camera and it works)
I have 2 of these cameras in my flat as baby monitors for when we are at work to ensure the baby and nanny are safe. One connected via Wifi and one over LAN. Both connect equally well, but the Wifi one is in LOS of my wireless router, with poorer signal quality I'm not sure it would be as stable.
Cameras have good quality and are easy to setup, even with the iOS software. However the app only allows for simple configuration, to get into the advanced settings you need to use a computer browser to access the camera's web interface.
The web interface allows for fairly in-depth configuration - such as stream quality, motion detection, recording to SD card or NAS, sending push notifications on alert etc. However the menus are not intuitive, and obviously written by engineers who seem to forget regular users need to use the damn things too.
The strongest parts of the camera are the ease of setup, and solid stability once it is done. Using it for a month now I have not had the cameras crash on me or fail to display the streamed image. They have decent app/software support in terms of iOS apps, Mac apps, Android apps (I think), PC apps and also the ability to see the stream from a web browser. Also the 1080p image is decent (but capped at 18fps) or 720p at 30fps. The night-mode images are pretty good too with infra-red LEDs to boost picture quality in darkness.
The downsides are mostly in the software. As I said, the advanced setup via browser is quite clunky and isn't straight-forward. There are lots of settings that are named with a single word without any explanation as to what the setting means or does - and their manual is quite out of date (some of the camera's settings aren't listed in the manual).
Their apps are pretty poor too - the iOS app has no support for iPad so you have to use it in iPhone 2x zoom mode. On the iPhone the app hasn't been updated to support iPhone 6 or 6 Plus resolutions. The iOS app is also quite unstable, sometimes opening the app will make it crash and you have to re-load it. Once the app opens successfully it will try to connect to the cameras over the internet - the app will say the camera(s) are connected but the app will remain unresponsive for 5-10s (depending on network quality - over home wifi this delay is only a few seconds but over cellular 4G it can be up to 10-15s before the app responds). So then you wonder whether it is stuck connecting or whether the app has crashed.
The Mac software is even worse - you download it from their website but when you go to install it Mac OS tells you the app is unsigned by Apple and risks being malicious. In this day and age I don't think unsigned software is acceptable. Due to the poor quality of the app it also does not respect my firewall rules - so every time you open it Mac OS asks if you want to let the app through your firewall to connect. Again this is the developer's issue as all my other Mac software works as expected. Finally the app is so poorly written it doesn't use standard Mac OS window rules - I use a dual screen computer and the camera software will only display on the main display. It is not possible to drag the camera window to screen two. This is the only piece of software that is so poorly written IMO. Oh I also forgot to mention that the Mac app needs to be logged in as an administrator to connect to the camera. You can setup multiple user profiles in the camera, such as administrators for full configuration rights, or view-only users that can watch but not change anything. The Mac app MUST use an administrator account, it won't connect with a lower priority user account.
The worst problem is the implementation of the 1080p primary stream - you can only view it on a computer via the web interface or PC/Mac software. With the iOS app you are limited to the secondary stream - which maxes out at 768*432 @30fps. Even on home wifi with an iPhone 6 plus or iPad you can't get 1080p.
You can record your stream to a Micro SD card or local NAS. However even the manufacturer recommends you not record 24/7/365 and definitely not the 1080p primary stream. They strongly recommended I use motion detection and only capture when there is activity. Task management is used to trigger recording/screenshots/push notification/send emails at a specific time or during motion detection is a complex and confusing mess of settings, and took a good few hours and many back-and-forth emails with tech support to set correctly to my liking. Less tech savvy users will not enjoy setting this aspect up. The motion detection can be set to either the whole screen or just specific parts - but again setting the sensitivities and thresholds that trigger motion detection are a hassle as well.
The recordings can be of your primary, secondary or mobile streams and just affect the size of the clips. However clips are limited to 20min chunks. You can view them in app but only from an admin account, and there is no playback control of the clips - a 20m clip takes 20m to play and you can't fast forward or rewind. If you do need to review clips I recommend you log in via the web interface and download the clips to your computer manually for review. However there is no download all (there is delete all) and so 50 video files will take 50 clicks to download first.
Tech support are really excellent - they generally reply within one business day. However their website does not have the latest firmware of the camera available to download - you must manually email tech support and request the latest version. A ridiculous hoop to jump through.
All in all a decent camera and if you want simple setup and ease of use this camera is very good at that. If you need advanced features such as motion detection recording or detailed image fine-tuning prepare to spend many hours trying to get it just right. The camera itself is pretty solid and once you are over the frustrating setup phase it works fine 24/7. I have connected via iOS both locally on my own wifi network, from outside wifi networks and over 3G and 4G, and if the internet connection is stable the stream is pretty good.
The software lets it down, and for me fairly significantly, hence the 3 stars. The hardware itself is brilliant and worthy of more. Maybe one day they will write some decent apps and software to go with their great hardware.
EDIT Late November 2015
The company has just released new iOS and android apps. The app is much improved, with less lag when opening and appears slightly more stable - but time will tell. However it is a universal app that now supports iPad and larger iPhones, which was really necessary. It also has an option to enable HD streaming in the app if you want. Their customer service is top notch, as I encountered a serious bug that was crashing the new app (a problem with unsupported characters in the password), and their tech support solved the issue for me within 24 hours and about 8-10 back and forth emails.
I wanted to give them 4.5 stars as their Mac app is still terrible, however their excellent tech support really deserves 5. Fingers crossed they continue to improve the smartphone apps, work on the firmware of the cameras to be more user friendly, and release a modern Mac app eventually.
