I received a Pan Cam as a gift, love it, and am inclined to buy several more but off-put by how tedious it is to view footage stored on the SD card by swiping the timeline on the bottom of the video image. There is so much lag in the response it is near impossible to select the desired time precisely. It is like herding cats.
What I suggest as an alternative to swiping on the timeline is are HH:MM:SS text fields for manually entering start and end points for viewing. For example if I get a motion detection cloud alert for 06:30:15 I could access the SD footage, enter 06:29:00 — 06:31:00 to easily check what happened before and after. Ideally this single time-frame entry would be applied to all the cameras on the network sequentually, with an option to also save the clips to storage on the viewing device (iPad in my case).
Also desirable would be a fast forward option for SD playback and an option to skip to the next motion detection event on the SD. For example I use the Pan Cam to keep an eye on the dog when I’m out. I don’t need or want to save his every movement to the cloud but would enjoy a way to quickly skip between movement tracking events on the SD footage automatically to see what he has been into. He sleeps 80% of the time so being able to automatically skip between motion / sound (of him barking at someone) events would motivate me to buy more cameras.
