About Guard Viewer

1. Guard Viewer is a mobile surveillance client app.

2. With this app you can access surveillance products(Network Cameras,Network Speed Domes,NVRs) through network and view live or recorded video, receive alarms and manage cloud devices using your mobile phone.

Guard Viewer Customer Insights

1. The whole point of accessing security cameras from a phone app is to be able to view them when you are away from your home! Again it connects to my device when I am at home which is not the point of the app!I have to give a one star because we are unable to view our cameras using our mobile data.

2. Thank you for keeping the app updated.Recently started getting issues with playback sating device not online, but NVR is online and Live view works fine.

3. When I exit the app I would have to delete it and re-download it again for it to work.notifications do not come through except for saying the NVR has a notification, I have 32 cameras so it tells me one of the 32 has a notification... Worked a lot better when using the RX cam view like we used to use.

4. Mobile app, nope.Well it worked great for a couple of days, then for some reason I kept getting an error code 153 and cannot connect from my phone network.

5. Also doesn't always show color.The app was running fine on my chromebook for months.. Now the app wont even open up and if it does its running slow and choppy.. The only way I can get the app to work is by deleting the app and reinstalling it.

6. Updated app, updated NVR firmware, wifi or cell, internal or external, hangs...even upgraded my speed to 400\20...hangs and never loads.

7. The live view screen in portrait mode is way too small now after latest update.

8. No synchronous playback, loses your favorites, having to set up an account for P2P is pretty ridiculous as well, I went with this system because I don't want to go through a 3rd party to get my videos.Wish I could post a pic.

9. This app crashes all the time, and it doesn't connect to all of my cameras.

10. Acouple other people who have access to the same cameras have no problem but it's for iPhone.

11. Using on Phone: Samsung Fold 4Fix - changed default protocol 3 to protocol 2...working now.

    I am constantly having issues with the cameras going offline also. I have tried to unplug the power and the internet but it is still not bringing the cameras back online.
    Please contact me concerning this matter. I would call but I haven't been able to fine a customer service phone number.
    This is a business and we have had a lot of thefts in the past and I would hate to have to have another system installed because I really do like this system when it properly works!
