Here’s how it will help you:

View your cameras in full-screen view, available in both landscape or portrait, or use the smart multi-camera view* (check more details Q&As below) and see all your camera feeds together on one screen.
- With a subscription to the Cloud Recording app, you can access your past recordings and search through them by simply swiping through the timeline or quickly jump to a specific moment in time with the help of a calendar.
With access to both your live and past recordings, Angelcam’s mobile app becomes your complete on-the-go solution for staying on top of your feeds. Best of all, it’s FREE to use for all Angelcam users!

We hope you enjoy!

BUT WAIT! There’s more! We’re currently finishing up work on some unreleased features, including an extension to the mobile app that will allow you to view events on the timeline, IFTTT integration into our platform, and soon, camera sharing. Stay tuned and be sure to let us know which features you’re most interested in seeing in the future.
Mobile App Q&As:
Q: Which cameras are compatible with the new mobile app?
A: The new mobile app is compatible with any camera brand that supports MJPEG & h.264 (including sound). You can view one or several cameras at once, from one or even multiple locations.
Q: What is Smart multi-camera view?
A: This view allows you to see multiple cameras on one screen, even with a very slow internet connection. With multi-camera view you’ll essentially be seeing snapshots, but continually refreshed automatically (frequency based on your device capabilities and internet connection).
If your device is not connected to WiFi, the refresh rate is a maximum of 10 seconds (to save your mobile data), but it could be more on slower connections. Regardless of the frequency, you will be able to see what’s happening on your cams quickly and easily, even when traveling and using your international data roaming.
On the other side, if your device is connected via WiFi, there is no hard limit on the snapshot refresh rate. (Note: if you have a powerful device and a fast WiFi connection and still experience a low refresh rate, check out this post on our FAQ).
Q: How can I find a past moment with the mobile app?
A: To be able review your past recordings, add the Cloud Recording app to your camera. Once setup, you will be able to search through recordings by swiping through the timeline (to be found below the preview window) or find a specific moment by choosing the time and date from the calendar. No need for downloading clips or waiting for assistance – searching for a specific moment from the past has never been faster or easier.
Q: How much mobile data is needed for watching your cameras live?
If you want to save your mobile data, we suggest that you primarily watch your cameras while you’re connected via WiFi. Snapshots are being refreshed every few seconds, which might be alright even if you’re not on WiFi, but with the real-time view of your camera stream (in camera detail), your data usage can increase very quickly, especially if you’ve set up your FUP for 300 (watching your stream in full HD uses a lot of data). So please keep your mobile data limits in mind when accessing the live stream from your camera.
Q: How much does the Cloud Recording app costs?
A: The Cloud Recording app, with cloud storage for your security cameras and DVRs, starts at $3.99 per month. If you wish to try it first, be sure to take advantage of our 30-Day Trial of the Starter 7 plan with 7 days retention.
