Anyone able too login too their camera or account this morning? I received notifications this morning but camera is offline as is their website. Login page comes up but doesn’t recognize the credentials.
Buddy just called me and he’s having the same issues. Kind of relieved that he called and had the same thing happening. We’ll see what happens throughout the day.

Spypoint sh@t it'self last night - tech server issue I'm guessing and another clown show in Canada...

All the camera companies are having problems right now. System is overloaded. They sold more product than they could provide for. I've had a cell cam for 2 weeks I can't even make an account.

Will the pictures come when they get back online? I keep getting notifications that something went by, but no pictures show up. I guess I’m asking if I’ll get a couple hundred at one time? 😂

58 minutes on the phone with Command Pro, for the second time, still not fixed.

Typical IT problem. Didn't anticipate the load. I'm sure a shitload of last-minute people went out last weekend and dumped a pile of corn and hung a cam. Takes a couple of days for the coons and deer to find it. Bam huge demand spike and night-night technical resources.

^ thinking the same thing Joe, would've been interesting to be in their CIC when it first started down - first SITREP's are always wrong and lead to rash bad decisions.

-or- much less likely but a possibility is cyber attack on the spypoint server infrastructure. Competitor or otherwise.

I got a spy point camera that will not find a signal, it just flashes green, this was happening before last night
I had my micro solar that worked flawlessly last year give me fits this summer when putting it back out. I ended up sending it in for a replacement. I had some other issues last season with some other micros. I had to jump thru hoops with Spypoint CS before getting everything resolved. I truly hate their CS , but they do uphold their end of the deal.
