In group mode only one camera can have the sound on, the only work around would be to use 2 devices one with each cam on it.
what 3rd party app do you use?
Please do this! I have cameras in multiple rooms that need to constantly play on my app.
You can do this by grouping your cameras. Here’s an article that can help walk you through it!
Hi, thanks for all of the info here! I’ve created the groups in order to see my desired cameras at once but saw (and experienced) you must toggle between cameras for sound. This makes using them as baby monitors impossible with more than one child. Is this something “in the works” or a “never gonna happen?” I have to young kids, one is SN and really need sound through more than one camera especially at night.
If this is a “never gonna happen,” is there a 3rd party app that will allow more than 1 camera to play picture and sound at the same time?
We can’t officially recommend any third party apps. Here’s a #wishlist topic that you may want to hop over to and vote for and/or comment on:
Ok thank you, I did vote and post on the wishlist. Unfortunately, if this is not in the works, we will have to return. It’s just not probable for us to not hear both kids. Thanks for responding!
If you have say 9 cams. You’re on a iPad in landscape mode do you just scroll down to see the other cams?
I don’t have an Ipad but on my tablet if you have more than 4 you swipe/scroll to the side and the next 4 will show.
I can see them, no problem. But the sound is only from one camera at a time. It’s a big problem at night, when I’m not looking at it and rely on the sound (from both monitors) to wake me if either of my kids need me.
I hope that makes sense. Lol
Ya I was think my old cctv were up/down but they are side to side too.
I completely understand what you want and why it’s a need actually. But as a compromise can you put two phones beside your bed if you have them with each opened to a different camera? I know that’s not ideal I’m just trying to think of a way to get you bye for now.
Yes when I replied earlier I was only referring to the visual aspect, currently you can only listen to audio from one cam at a time. The only way to achieve different;y would be to use 2 devices like paindonthurt suggested.
Thanks for the suggestion. We are currently using my phone and our iPad so we can hear both kids. I appreciate all
of the responses!!
I don’t have kids but I have my iPad and iPhone beside bed too. I’m disabled so before wife falls asleep I watch tv on my iPhone and once she’s snoring I switch to iPad. Lol. Your reasons for having both are much more important. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
Thanks so much @paindonthurt, I prefer falling asleep to tv too but my husband doesn’t. Lol Never thought to use my phone! hope you have a great Sunday too!
God bless and take care!
I am not sure why this wasn’t the originally response to the question, but maybe the feature wasn’t available in 2018. It certainly is available now.
Hi there, is there an update on multiple live streams?
I beleive this feature is already available. I have only tried it with two cameras. However, I would imagine that you can add as many cameras as you want using the “Group Products” feature. Within that feature, create a “Camera Group”. Once the camera group is setup, you will be able to view all cameras with one click. The current challenge, is getting the app to stay open while the camera group is displaying. Sometimes it will stay active for days, and sometimes it will only stay active for minutes.
