Lovely Interface, Lite on Features, Poor Performance…From the perspective that this is really a system and not just a single app, the system is disappointing. A great app if you want photos and videos of people's back-sides. (aka people leaving the scene)
Three components exist to this system, the iOS app, the computer app and the cloud server with a service cost of $40. The computer app manages the camera, detects the motion and pumps the photos and video to the server. The server then alerts the iOS device via notification that new data exists and the iOS app is used as a client to the server to view the data. In leu of using the iOS app, you can access the same information on the web interface. All in all, a decent design which keeps firewalls secure by negating the need for the iOS app to connect to the computer app. Both apps reach to the cloud. Of course, without the fee based cloud service, the apps non-functional.
Now if it only worked and worked reliability and accurately…
As a system, the operations are frustrating as performance is poor. Photos of one person have come in while videos of another are taken. Somehow the first person disappeared, replaced by the second and nobody was running. Initial snapshots when motion is detected are taken and by the time the video is activated people are easily out of camera view. Most of the time you get a video of people's backsides, and if you are into that sort of thing, this is definitely your app!
With two machines (two cameras) in the same room, rarely do both trigger on the same motion in the room; usually just one. This begs the question if there are times when neither detect motion and visitors go unnoticed.
Without live video capability, ad-hoc viewing of what the camera sees is relegated to asking for snapshots from the camera back to the iOS app. Such snapshots are frequently plagued with long delays do what appears to be Orbicule's server performance.
At the end of the day this is a $40 security solution which has a lovely interface, is light on features, has mediocre to poor performance and has questionable reliability. By contrast, I have SecuritySpy running in the same room on a different machine and it's operations are flawless…and it has live video on demand.
At a very minimum, until the performance issues are addressed, can't recommend this.
