  • Presence

    By Dr.Rick Jones
  • New updates only cause further issues

    By --ThatGuy--
    -unable to playback video -horrendous lag using app and starting the recording process -unable to download videos -cost me money to have access to these “features”
  • Was great — latest version breaks app

    By WOW Composer
    Can no longer view any videos, even previously viewable ones which have been on the Presence servers for a year, since updating. Too bad, because I really have enjoyed previous versions!
  • Good use of old phones

    By csutech5
    This app is a good use of old phones when it’s connected. However, my phones will randomly disconnect and the GEO doesn’t detect when I’m away. It detects when I’m home but not when I leave. I’ve unplugged, uninstalled, reinstalled and it’s the same issues. I also don’t like the gaps in between the recordings and the short lengthy. I pay for the pro version but would like quicker recording and longer lengths.
  • Great!

    By BoBo859
    This app is great for someone with some old phones lying around. Getting ready to try Geofencing, hope it works as well as the rest of the app. Would recommend to anyone with an old phone!
  • So so

    By rekomsa
    Works great for streaming, occasionally there’s no sound but most of the time playback on recorded vid sits there with a spinning cursor forever n never Plays and a lot of recorded video crashes the app on my iphone7 when downloading at 50% every time. Fix these issues and it would be an amazing app
  • Garbage!!!

    By Wileydaugg
    Absolute garbage!!!
  • Nice App - Camera Probs

    By athomasimage
    This is a good app. Nice way to use old cell phone for security system. There are known problems with display orientation and camera can go out of focus when turned on by the app. Lots of users reporting same issues.
  • Good idea, poor execution

    By Mr.TurdFerguson
    I’ve got 6 old phones. All on same network and I’ve got high speed FiOS. Yet seemingly randomly, at any given time, at least 2 phones (and different each time I check) “last connected 18 minutes ago.” “Last connected 6 minutes ago.” “Last connected yesterday.” Why? I’ve got them all set ad dedicated cameras, no other apps or notifications running, etc. It’s simply a camera connected to WiFi (again, WiFi isn’t the issue - I don’t have problems with my computers or TV streaming). If it can’t consistently stay connected or stay running, then it defeats the purpose.
  • Great idea, easy set up, blurry images

    By Moondancerst1234
    After reading other great reviews I chose Presence. Set up was super easy but I have an issue that makes this virtually unusable; the remote camera image is crystal clear (iPhone 6) but when viewed on the remote control device (iPhone X) the image is blurry with very little details. I currently use 2 Ring cameras and 1 Sony Smartcam and images viewed remotely from those devices are crystal clear.
