Asking for too many permissions.
WARNING... DANGER..... Very very Concerning permissions. New update permissions: read and modify contacts. (and I got calls and texts off friends advertising me crap who were actually not my friends... as found my contacts were edited copying my friends names and adding contacts on my phone to make dodgy sales people look like my friends to try trick me) it also wants to Read call log, add/modify call logs, mount and unmount file storage and access to SD card, Read and log all apps and internet history, and access the GPS and more.. None of which were required or needed for a cctv camera at all! Suspicious Chinese servers, uploading all my private info and texts and call logs... NO THANKS... Glad I got the camera free as a product review.. Or it would been waste of money as can't use it.. Others in reviews have spotted same issues with permissions.. So reported to Google.
******* Warning ********************** Before you install this app look at the permissions. Read and modify your contacts, GPS location, and a host of others. So the way i see it, they know where you are, they can check if your in, they have all your contact information and call logs. Very very dodgy, How google allow this i have no idea. But you buy a security camera for security, not to make it easy to be robbed. Someone explain to me why a camera needs to read your contacts and call logs.
I LOST MY ACCOUNT NUMBER...FAILED TO L9G IN
sends user info and calls and contacts to china
Waste of money, waste of time...takes too long to connect and still ended a failure despite strong wifi connection.
Dont trust this. Was fine at first. But after a few months caught the camera moving on its own when all my devices had turned off. Also my dogs who at first ignored the camera. Suddenly had a fear of it. Changed passwords. Happend agsin next day.... turned off and in the bin.
ALARM SENT ME TOO MANY MESSAGES, NOW SERVER JUST SENDS WARNING MESSAGES WITH DEAD LINKS!! I CANNOT RESET TO RECEIVE ALARM MESSAGES, JUST WARNING EMAILS ALL THE TIME
new update don't have my pre set setting on the camera
Why is there no 5g WiFi support.. Can't connect to my BT hub... Keeps telling me that the camera doesn't support 5g WiFi.. Pretty pointless as most routers and hubs are now 5-..please respond support
Installed a few hours ago, crashed ("stopped") already. What now?
Why is this app trying to update via a third party. Please update via play store so we know it is from real source.
Constant problems with the app crashing when loading. Keep getting the green and pink screen of death and the sound carrys on after I shut the app down. Really needs a bug fix!!!
Great app when it works but quite often get a network busy / network timed out error. Also just updated to latest version and where has the preset option gone ? We used to have 5 preset views now we have just one . Not good.
Awesome features. Thanks for the app
Every time when i trying to start this app it says irror
Keeps losing connection moto x.
Get "ieye error" when launching the apps
Can't believe that I need to switch on Wi-Fi for opening this app.
Error occurred when open by mobile data. It can only work in WIFI connection. Please solve it.
Pls fix then i'll change rating..
It always shows my cameras are offline and can't connect after new update
Pain in but to setup and disconnects a lot even while away
ive just buy this can just now... why not compatible with my huwei .... i just wast my money
Works fine on WiFi but I get ieye error on 4g and 3g
Getting too many false positive alarms. Upto 20 a day. This needs sorting out ASAP
Love the camera by Sumvision, like the app too but won't work on 3g or 4g only on wifi also should be allowed to close if u press back twice... instead u have to use the exit button in another menu...
Worked fine on my old SGS5, but fails to open on my SGS7 Edge. Just keeps reporting "iEye Error" before force closing. Now I'm left with an IPCam that is less useful than the box it came in.
UPDATE- WHY DOESN'T SOFTWARE DESIGNER RESPONDS TO FEEDBACK AND MAKE THE APP BETTER. WE PAID FOR CCTV WE WANT GOOD SOFTWARE SUPPORT!!!! Keeps on having an app error and won't let you use the app when away from home. Not user friendly. Can't figure out how to record apart from schedule as there is no record button. Can't figure out how room zoom in sold as having the ability to zoonotic on app. Please update apo urgently. Ps -I have galaxy s7 don't think it works well with the new galaxy software
This is a edit to my 1* review as since the last review there's been a couple of updates and works like a charm now. A few things would be good now like the ability to switch between night vision or normal vision as the camera constantly clicks when it's dusk. And also to be able to set the camera to record through the night just when there's motion but you can only do that by having motion turned on permanently which is no good with a dog in the house.
A useful and user-friendly app to use. However, after updating to Android Marshmallow v6.0.1 last week the 3G/4G connection is lost and iEye only opens via WiFi. This is a serious issue which needs to be resolved. I would also like to be able to store data elsewhere on my network or the cloud, because intruders could easily steal the camera meaning your on-board photo and video evidence is lost.
Latest update lost preset function.
This last update make current position for the preset function dismiss. And for android 6.0.1 cannot connect to the camera by phone network, it only work by wifi
Now that the 3g marshmallow problem has been finally fixed, I can see just how good this app is.
Why on Earth does this app now need access to my contact list? Otherwise works ok, but no better really than any other ip camera. (Chinese government instructions?)
App ok. But why does it want to read personal info on your phone. Dodgy if you ask me. But i suppose all these ppi and other scammers have to get there numbers from somewhere.
I bought two of these cameras, but having serious issues using the app. 1. It wouldn't find WiFi and wouldn't connect. 2. Had to setup via RJ45 then it worked via WiFi. 3. It found an update failed to download multiple times. When it did got to 51% failed to download. 4. App keep crashing as well. 5. There was no QR code to add either via instructions. A bit useless really if you can't update and app keeps crashing. Using Samsung Galaxy Note 4
