This update fixes an issue where zooming on certain devices failed to function as expected... or at all.
It builds upon the last update that introduced the following features:
- Maximise your screen usage by allowing you to remove margins around the camera views in the grid.
- Choose how many cameras to show per column in the grid. One, two or three per row!
HomeCam is the only app to allow you to view multiple cameras live at once and control their surroundings.
Take action based on data layers such as temperature, humidity and air quality, controlling other HomeKit accessories to make your life healthier while viewing it live.
