Ty, you guys are very sweet. I downloaded dropbox on all my device’s and did the fix you sent. We will see tonight when it’s dark. I know this is a free app and I love it. Just the last play store update was not good with my device’s. When I get some free time, I have 4 jobs…I’m going to promote you on google+. I’m already soo use to having Alfred that when the play store update made my viewing worse I was really bummed. Anyway ty and the team I’m still overly happy and hope thousands more actually use Alfred. On a side note there is a local radio show here, I’ve met and know some of the on air personalities and have told them about Alfred, and to promote it. Of course I have promoted on my FB as well.
Nothing matters more than connecting you with the people and place you care about. That is what we believe in. We believe that the need for a stronger sense of security is universal, and we believe that with everything we already have-- smartphones, home wifi, mobile network-- that sense of security should be easily accessible.
We are just a group of app developers. We need superheroes like you to help us check if we are fulfilling your needs.
Truth be told, this 1002 private beta apk was developed to fix color problems like this and this, so I am not too confident in its ability to improve night vision, but…this is the best I can do right now. If this apk doesn’t work, I know that the developers are coming up with the next beta test, and I’ll make sure that you are the first one to have it when it is ready. Or, like I said earlier, I can revert your device to version 968. Disappointing you is the last thing I want. Again, thank you so much for the warm support. It is always a delight to come to Alfred Center after reading too many user complaints.
Your encouragement can always turn me from
That is AMAZING!!!
May we know which radio station and host you are connecting us with? Do you think we can send them a press kit? With information about the app, instructions and true user stories, and our contact information?
Most of our users are husbands, which is totally understandable because home security is a manly topic, but we see a subtle increase in the number of female users, moms mainly. We want to reach more parents and pet owners, if possible. Each show has different audience, husbands, parents, adult children, frequent travelers, college students, we can prepare a press kit for the host to facilitate introduction, if you/they don’t mind.
Hey, out of curiosity, have you watched this?
Hi it worked for one cam not the worst garage one, the pics I sent can u send a link for the old alfred ty
Yes I watched it. Im getting you the radio show info also.
Hi, yeah my night vision is mostly gone. I tried swaping cameras but no luck. The old alfred would not download,…just be ready when there is a google play store update to make it like it was bafore. Will say daytime pic is great, just lost night vision, it either all white or a lil blue but can’t tell what I’m looking at anymore in night mode on two diff cams.
I don’t understand why old Alfred won’t download…Hmm… Have you tried uninstalling your Alfred and reinstalling version 968?
No but I can tomorrow…I will and let you know.
You were rt, I had to remove Alfred then do the dropbox install of the old Alfred. Ty I do have a ?, how many alfred cams can I use? I think it’s 4 but not sure, I want to add another. Also I’m going to try and promote you on Google+ now, rate you so on.
Yes I do! For the fact criminals as well as spouses that are cheating never estimate the hour that the incident will occur…!!! I know first hand on both counts
I see this is an older thread, but still want to add my views on the 24/7 recording option. Well, a bit more trickier than 24/7. A scheduled one. Like from Monday to Sunday to have a schedule that I can easily set up as if it was an alarm clock. Just a FROM to UNTIL on a day. Example: Monday FROM 21:00 UNTIL 09:00, Friday FROM 22:00 UNTIL 08:00 and so on. Motion detection is great. But sometimes it can be slow. It can skip over that 1 second which mattered most. With a continuous record that precious second of a critical event would had been captured. Obviously the advantage that Motion Detection has is the alert notification, but it does not exclude the option to still have a motion detection alert notification while the ongoing continous recording is happening. It’s a million ways trickier that’s for certain. But it would be nice. It’s a “make a wish” topic, so I made a wish. Have a 7 week schedule for ongoing recording schedules, and still have motion detection alert notification sent to the viewer phone. It could make a huge difference to have or to miss that 1 important second which the current Motion Detection misses when it starts capturing.
where does the total recording lies or where can i see my recordings
Thank you for reaching out!
You can see your recordings by going to your Event Book. Please tap on the icon on the bottom right of your camera thumbnail, and you will see the list of Events.
Hope this helps!
I know this has not been visited for a while, but I also second (or third) the option of 24/7 recording. I would pay a premium for this. My Nexus 6P is not good at capturing motion capture. Someone keeps stealing my mail, and I’ve had a problem in the past with the municipal snow plow hitting my car (not all of the footage was captured) and an armed home invasion that was not picked up by Ring. Sometimes, we need a fail-safe.
Also, I’d like to be able to change my username on here. It seems to have been automatically generated. Since it is my real name, it makes me feel unsafe to be discussing how my security is set up in a public forum.
Welcome to joining us at Alfred Center!
24/7 recording is a feature we plan to work on in the near future. Please continue to support Alfred and stay tuned!
If you want to change your username at Alfred Center, you can send a direct message to me and state the new username. I’ll help you change it as soon as I see the message.
24 hour recording would make this app worthwhile.
The reason why it would be superior to motion capture recording is that, motion capture does not record for long enough, or fast enough if someone walks past the camera really quickly, it has started recording but they have already passed.
Also, sometimes it doesn’t activate at all.
When it comes to night vision you need an infrared light source. Also on your camera device you will have an infrared lens filter which can be removed on some devices but is a very tricky task as the device has to be stripped down to get to the lens which is very tiny and fragile. Out of the one’s I’ve examined the lens component was sealed and I felt that trying to remove the filter would permanently damage the lens. Also you would need to be able to filter ordinary light to make it clear, this is achieved by using exposed celluloid film. There are videos of how to achieve this on certain video sites with a webcam which I have done myself but have failed to achieve the same results on a mobile/cell phone.
You can not have proper night vision without proper night vision hardware.
I agree the night vision is very hard to see …even when u pay.
Alfred’s Low-Light Filter still needs a little light to work. Please find some tips for optimizing its performance here:
If you need further assistance, you can always send us a screenshot or a link to an Event so we can give you more specific advice.
