    Hello! I recently purchased this camera and have gone through all of the steps successfully. However, i am not able to get a visual on neither my phone or my tablet. I am able to hear myself, but the screen is black and the icon for loading appears. However, nothing else happens. Could you help? Thanks!

    Just received a new FREDI BVCam and found no reference as to how to setup this device with a Linux computer (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS or any PC) which we all use for to best security of all systems available. None of the phone or pad products are secure in any way and it would be good to find proper support for the growing Linux community which is quickly replacing the Microsoft and Apple systems for use by people who are interested in effective security like us. Thank you

      Thanks for your feedback. The Linux community is relatively small. If the community is large enough, the development team will consider launching an exclusive application for Linux system.
