iDMSS is a surveillance app that lets you view while also controlling live video streams from video encoders and cameras. It has its official Android version too, which goes by the name gDMSS. With this app, you get to manage your surveillance gadgets from the convenience of your smartphone. Here’s a full review of the security tool.
This is an app with features ideal for recording both audio and video. With it, you get to manage your camera however you want, zoom in and out, rotate it and even make a video call. Notably, it’s super smart and can detect any movement, regardless of how slight it was, and ring the alarm. Due to this important feature, it can be used for monitoring any form of CCTV camera. The app also has its cloud space alongside a Wi-Fi link for it to upload your videos online.
On cross-platform use, it comes as an app for all Android devices and iOS gadgets. The Android app requires Android version 4.0.3 and over, while the iOS version works with devices beyond iOS 8.0 (available for iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone).
Ease of Use
Right from the display, the Android and iOS app is quite easy to use. The controls are few, and you can easily locate the features. Notably, the app worked seamlessly on my device without any hitches until recently when I installed the latest version of the app. Ever since then, I’ve experienced crashes and lags.
The latest version comes with both Import and Export device QR codes. Additionally, this update fixes several bugs that characterized the previous version while also bringing performance enhancements.
The mobile app uses the simplest of design and a straightforward user interface. These attributes make it easy to understand and navigate. Moreover, they contribute to the convenience offered by the app in general. The menu items to choose from are also quite a few, and the dark background reduces the chances of eye fatigue caused by video glare.
The things I find to be most appealing about this app is that you can install it for free and you don’t have to worry about any expenses since it has no in-app purchases.
- It’s a free installation;
- Supports real-time playback;
- No in-app purchases.
- The videos don’t play consistently;
- It crashes when opening videos;
- The latest version has problems with its auto rotate.
Notably, the app crashes any time I try looking at a video or play a previous recording. Although these issues can be sorted out with regular updates. The developers seem quite eager to get the app do a polished state, so it is worth sticking around. Without the setbacks, I believe that this can be the ideal surveillance tool. I like the features, and I would recommend you install the app and see if it works well for you.
