1.0 out of 5 stars no longer works - update - and once more it fails November 30, 2013
Verified Purchase
It did work for awhile but not anymore. I thought it was ok on my Kindle Fire when it worked. It had a few problems but I would give it 3 stars while it worked. I'm sure it will be fixed again.

Update 12/12/13 - It has been fixed and once more it works. It does not work with Blue Iris but on its own it works well with my Kindle and my IPhone. I changed my rating from one star to three.

Update 12/19/13 - As of yesterday it once more does not work. I have no idea what is going on but either this app is very poor or the company behind it is having a lot of problems. This app is really not worth your time.

1.0 out of 5 stars No pic on Kindle Fire original November 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
Kindle Fire - original - Lorex Vantage LNC 116 Streaming camera -

Lets me set up camera, wi-fi and connect but not view!
Crashes every every time when I click on the camera icon to view stream.

Then, while the "this application has stopped unexpectedly - it transmits sound loudly to my Kindle - even though camera sound is turned off in web settings (on Mac) and sound doesn't come to my Mac in L-View (Mac version of this).

Once in a while I see a frame or two of picture quickly before it force exits itself.
It does let me change camera settings, just cannot look at the picture (!)

Camera works fine in Mac app from same vendor, but can't view with this app on Fire.
Uninstalled, re-downoaded and re-installed, same thing. Not working.

Oh, and is the case with many developers, it doesn't rotate views or worse, it does only in certain of it's views.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed November 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
The app works pretty well on my android, but it doesn't work at all on my kindle fire hd. Every time I open it, it opens for less than a second and then force closes. It's a shame, because I was so looking forward to being able to view it on a larger, HD screen.

3.0 out of 5 stars lorex acknowledges does not support the kindle fire hdx February 28, 2014
Verified Purchase
Have 4 cameras. Remote access on Windows 8 & Motorola Droid RAZR works great. Setting up cameras on Kindle Fire HDX went well, too bad cannot access. When selecting camera, shows for a split second then closes. Problem doesn't appear to be Android.

Update: 4/3/2014 contacted Lorex.submitted a support question. Lorex responded that this Lorex Ping app is not supported on the Kindle Fire HDX. With that response they closed the ticket. Sounds final to me. Don't download on Kindle Fire HDX!!

2.0 out of 5 stars tempermental January 6, 2014
Verified Purchase
I purchased 2 cameras and while they work perfectly when they function but they are useless when the app fails. The app loaded to my kindle fire and gave me a view then completely turned off. This happened repeatedly and per other reviews this app is useless for this product in its current state. I had better luck with my iphone (4G and 5) but it also refused to get a signal at times or dropped the app for certain maneuvers like changing the camera settings. The camera quality is good but night vision uses a light within the camera. You can NOT use this in a baby's room at night if that is what you are looking to do. The app needs work if to be used for realtime monitoring.

Crashes immediately on opening a camera view. Hopefully Lorex will fix it soon. Pretty useless to offer it in the APP store.
