But EyezOn and video surveillance support is kind of looking like a poor stepchild kind of a thing. Other than one very poorly-reviewed exception: All that's supported is Foscam, and, reading up on their products it looks like they're trying to force customers onto their own portal. Not acceptable.
Or am I misreading things?
I don't really follow. Are you quoting someone else at the end of your paragraph?
Eyezon only supports Foscam because every camera manufacturer is different and they were the only one that allowed for an easy LAN API so we could control them from our app, which is what customers wanted. While the cameras aren't the greatest in the world, they are inexpensive and do the job.
