Important Message from Foscam Digital Technologies Regarding US Sales & Service

We, Foscam.US (aka Foscam Digital Technologies and now Amcrest Technologies), are an independent United States based distributor of "Foscam" branded products. We have been offering telephone support, US local warranty and building the Foscam brand in the US for the past 7 years. However, we are deeply saddened to report that, even after all of this, our overseas suppliers have decided to undercut us and supply to our major customers directly. For this reason, we have no choice but to suspend telephone support for all Foscam branded products. If you have purchased a Foscam camera directly from us or from one of our authorized retailers, technical support is still available via email at

For customers who have not purchased from us directly, we advise you to please contact Foscam Shenzhen or the distributor which you have purchased from. In the meantime, we have launched our own new brand of IP cameras called Amcrest, which has superior quality products and full telephone technical support 7 days per week. We hope you can support us in our new venture. For more information, please visit

The surveillance app pro (I have a link in my sig) works pretty well. The developer periodically puts out decent updates and improvements.

Live Cams Pro has audio. You have to select the I8918W reverse pan from the list of cameras.

Panning the camera is a bit slow but other than that, it's one of two that has audio currently. Others are in development I hear. I haven't tried the other one as I couldn't try it free first

If you need audio, then the choice is easier. We have two apps currently supporting audio, and they are both being actively developed and improved.

'NetCam2Go' -

'Baby Monitor Foscam'

We are actively developing both apps, and have a support group where you can also register feature requests.

Our baby monitor App (y-cam version) was recently reviewed by engadget: ... g-and-lov/

I bought the Foscam Surveillance Pro but it doesn't seem to support the FI8910W? I can't get it to work on my iphone. Ugh.

CamViewer from the App Store is great. It's free. Easy to set up and it works great. I'm using it on an iPad2 with three cameras. Been using it for about two months and have had no problems.
