 I love these products, and they were really easy to set up. I'm using my Nexus 4 smartphone as a camera. Because the screen must be on to record the battery is drained quickly, even when the phone is plugged in. Next release, please allow devices to record even when the screen is off.

 We just released a new version Mobile Security Camera app for Android. It can run in the background.

I updated the app to the newest version, but streaming stops when the screen is off as well as when I switch to another app without closing Security Camera.

First of all, please make sure you have installed the latest version CameraFTP Mobile Security Camera app for Android.

Background Recording is not enabled by default as it may drain your battery quickly.

To enable it, please tap on Settings, then check the Checkbox "Background recording", then tap the Camera tab. You can then press the Home button to switch to another app. CameraFTP Mobile Security Camera will continue running in the background. You can also press the Power button to turn off the screen (but do not power off the device), the app will still run in the background and keep uploading images / videos to CameraFTP.com.

If you enable Background Recording, please make sure your device is plugged in with a charger. Otherwise, your device will run out of battery quickly.

If you still cannot get it working, please email CameraFTP customer support with more detailed information about your phone model and Android version number.
