more than likely you need to configure the setting inside your router

This program does not work on my iPhone . It always says
“cannot connect to server try later”. Is there another
Program that works with ivigi ?


iVigil Tech February 27, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Try iwatch dvr, or Bubo bubo
Both Apps work Great

Which Program are you using?

Bubo Bubo and SCdvr apps both stopped working when I upgraded to ios5.

Is this a known issue?

Are there any known apps that will work with ios5 on iPhone or iPad?


iVigil Tech February 27, 2012 at 7:32 pm

Try iWatchDVR. available for both android and iphone

iVigil Tech, Thanks for rec iwatchDVR. Works well on my iOS5. I couldnt access Bubo Bubo although my tech guy recommended it. Cheers!

Depending On the phone and the version, iWatch Dvr may be the only option.

its seems that every few weeks my bubo bubo app
just stops working. I recently upgraded my iPhone to 6.0
I installed bubo bubo when I had 5.1 and now Bubo bubo
has stopped working. Can I correct this and how? I can’t keep calling the
Installer to come out and fix the problem.

The Bubo Bubo App may be in conflict with another app you have,
You can reset your phone to factory settings and add the Bubo Bubo App first. And 9 times out of ten that fixes the problem.
Depending on the actual version of dvr you have, you may want to go ahead and install iWatch DVR 1 or 2.
Hope this helps!
