  1. Provide offline mode for CAM

    Per a previous request which was claimed to be "resolved," yet it is not:

    http://support.camwebapp.com/forums/252939-ideas/suggestions/10987476-offline-mode

    That is not OFFLINE mode, GUEST mode shouldn't be broadcasting. Please resolve it.

    The log I have has over 10,000 intrusion attempts made by CAM alone. I will not unblock the software as it absolutely does not need network access to your servers.

    The issue is not solved or completed as you claim it to be.

    • Connect with ASUS Aura Sync, so that a build's RGB are unified.

      This means that the HUE+, Aer, and Kraken can then display the same light as an ASUS GPU/Mobo that uses their own 'Aura' display system. Maybe a RGB hub? Or just an open communication between the two so that the users can mix/match components and still get a cohesive light theme!

        Hello all,

        Thank you for your feedback and interest in this feature. At the moment we are looking into this along with other potential candidates. We will keep you guys updated as we get more information.

        Thanks!

      • New CAM not as good as the old version.

        Looks aside, this new CAM redesign leaves much to be desired. Please bring back the ability to see multiple GPU's on the dashboard and bring back the HUE and cooling options on the dashboard. Having to fish through menus to change HUE/Fan settings is much less intuitive than the previous version. Honestly wish I never upgraded it.

          We are looking into bringing back the quick controls to lighting and cooling on the dashboard. It’ll replace the HDD section. What do you guys think?

        • Day and Night Modes

          Would like an option to setup times, for people that don't need the lights on all day long.

            Hi everyone,
            This is an excellent suggestion. Sorry it took us so long to respond. We are mostly working on stability and fixing bugs for CAM right now. When we feel the time is right, we will definitely consider adding this option. This would be a great smart mode.

          • Fully Customisable LEDs on HUE+

            It would be great if they made it so there was an interface you could make your own LED patterns on. (Or at least making it open source so techy people could do it - idk if this is already a thing)

            This could be expanded by being able to share your patterns with other cam users.

            There is LOADS of potential in this product. I would love to see a subreddit with lots of active users contributing their new patterns.

            From NZXT point of view - if they had a page on their website where users could share patterns,…

              Hi Adam,
              Sorry for the very late response. We are considering opening up the SDK so we can have users program their own modes and share with other users. This project will require some time to build out and we currently have other higher priority tasks we are working on. However, I can tell you that we have more cool modes coming, especially for gamers.

            • Make the fans be controlled by both CPU and GPU temp on the Grid+ simultaneously

              I want to control the fans on my grid+ based off both CPU and GPU simultaneously,

              So take the scenario, where I have a more graphics intensive application. I have to currently switch over to a profile that adjusts the fans based on GPU temps, If I then start using a CPU intensive application I have to again change the profile to one that adjusts based on CPU.

              Instead I want a single profile that allows me to define a graph for my cpu and gpu, then basically if the graph for the GPU has a higher fan speed than…

                This is an excellent suggestion! What you are saying is that we allow users to create a “smart” profile depending on whether the CPU or GPU or both is getting hot. Don’t be surprised to see this feature soon.

              • Kill CAM as it is and start again, seriously.

                Please admins, take a deep breath, step back and think before deleting this.
                CAM is horrible, regardless of whether the devs like it or not let the customer be the judge.
                Google your product and read what people have to say on public forums etc, hell even here!
                It's a bloated piece of software essential to the configuration of system cooling (which it does poorly with missing essential features!) and includes and incredible amount of bloat and useless features that people are not using.
                People are asking for minimal, asking for fast loading, asking for CPU & GPU temp to…

                • Give us more freedom in fan controls for GRID+ V2

                  Okay, compared to the antiquated Speedfan application, CAM is severely limiting. You've got a perfectly capable fan controller that is being held back by bad software.

                  I want these capabilities added.
                  - Fan speed varies dynamically between two points on the curve
                  - Ability to create more than three custom profiles
                  - Ability to control a fan with a CPU curve and a GPU curve. This would allow an exhaust fan to ramp up if either the CPU or GPU get hot. Make it so the fan will either run at the higher of the two requested speeds, or the…

                  • Beta CAM software release before being pushed to release

                    Due to the amount of problems people are having with 3.2.04 and the time it takes until fixes are made (almost 3 weeks now) and released. Even a hotfix release would be highly appreciated. This would avoid headaches for general consumers, and those who do not check the forums, as well as highlight potential bugs that shouldn't be making it into release.

                      This is an excellent suggestion and we are in the process of implementing it. If you are interested in being a beta tester and possibly get access to CAM-related hardware prior to the public release, please contact Eric Lam at eric.lam@nzxt.com.

                    • HUE+ Audio EQ mode - Each LED should have its own frequency range and volume for more reactiveness

                      If each LED on the strip were assigned to a different frequency range on the EQ and given the same 1-8+ levels of color for volume, it would add an entirely different element to the reactiveness to audio and (especially on EDM where it's largely at full volume) be more than just a full-volume color bar that's barely moving, which is what the Audio setting really does now. Being able to adjust the sensitivity as well would be nice in all areas of the audio setting-I know it's BETA, but this would totally make it perfect, especially the EQ part.

                      • Screenshot in game + fps limiter

                        Hi, i love your program, so I disabled all others (because of collisions)

                        S I am missing screenshot feature:
                        a) set a folder for images
                        b) set a key for screenshots
                        c) choose if overlay should be on screenshot or not (optional, convenient, not necessary)
                        d) save a screenshot named by exe and date (something like "witcher3 2016-05-05 23:59:59" )

                        Also, FPS limiter would be nice (it helps in some games with stuttering).

                        Both of these features I could use in afterburner/rivaturner combo, but I would prefer to use single app, which is your target usage I believe, so please,…

                        • Release USB driver for third-party

                          Please release a standalone USB driver (or put code into a open source).
                          There are many developers (include me) who can create some minimal and fast app/service.
                          All I need is simple color and mode managment (fixed color and silent mode,etc.).

                          • Bunch of ideas to become a single monitoring solution on the PC

                            Great, cute, clean UI. Thank you, amazing work.

                            1) Is there an API to this system? I want to add system status as passive check result to external monitoring tool like nagios/shinken/icinga/zenoss/zabbix/sensu/riemann/...whatever.

                            2) Add external plugins support, or provide sdk/api to add custom checks. It will be nice to add something like yet-another-nagios-style-plugin + widget for graphic which appears at the dashboard.

                            For example, I want to see network connection status on the screen: package loss and ping value. Those are crucial metrics for anyone.

                            In the end I want to uninstall rainmeter, speedfan, cpuZ, NRPE and use CAM to…

                              Hi,
                              Thanks for the great suggestions. Here are some answers:
                              1) We don’t have a public API yet but this is something we are strongly considering creating one.
                              2) This is also a feature we are considering and may add in the future.
                              Sorry the answers cannot be more definitive at this point but know that these ideas are being considered internally and that we appreciate the feedback.

                            • More customizations for FPS Overlay

                              I'd like to chose a border color for the overlay text because sometimes when the color is too bright on a bright bachground is nearly impossbile to read it.

                              And would be a good thing to let users chose how info are shown and the position for each one (I like to have the FPS counter in the top right corner and GPU / CPU stats in the top left corner) just like HWInfo + RTSS do, they let you customize EVERYTHING of the OSD also units and names.

                              • Change proflie by time for HUE+

                                I recently got HUE+ LED for my case, and working fine, but wish i could have it switch automatic between different profiles, depending on time.

                                For e.x i would like to be able to have a profile with higher brightness during daytime and after a defined time by me use another profile at night with lower brightness

                                • Ability to sync different modes on fans + led strips

                                  I think the ability of syncing different modes on the fans + strips (or maybe even fans + fans/strips+ strips) would be awesome.

                                  For example, syncing a fade from one colour to another on the fans, to a covering marquee on the LEDs, so that when the marquee is covering the case in one colour, the fan glows that colour, and when it changes to the second colour on the marquee, the fan syncs its next fade with that.

                                  Also finer control of the speeds may be good, i.e. allowing you to set a certain speed in seconds, rather than…

                                  • Profiles need more fan speeds per temperature

                                    As of current the kraken operates with default profiles with 6 total points of adjustment. My suggestion would be to increase the amount of points to prevent from fans constantly revving up and revving down. Doubling the amount of points could prevent this problem. If you look at the default silent profile between 50C and 55C there is a huge fan speed change to prevent overheating but the fans jump from 35% to 55% which for fans with no softened increase cause sound annoyances. I'm starting to regret purchasing this product because of this huge flaw.

                                    TL:DR More points of…

                                      Hi Justin,
                                      Thanks for the suggestion. We are looking at this idea and others to smooth the transition between fan speeds. I will post a reply here once we’ve reached a consensus.

                                    • Please port to Linux!

                                      It wouldn't be that hard. You're ignoring a potentially huge influx of customers that Linux support would bring. It already seems like a great software, and I can imagine only that a Linux version would be even greater. Thanks.

                                      • How about keeping old versions online?

                                        How about keeping old versions so that if like me you update and the shit stops working you can get the bloaty spyware working again?

                                        • Better GPU fan control in cam 3.1

                                          In the latest version of Cam 3.1, the GPU overclocking tool has limitations with the gpu fan even with manual or custom setting it wont go bellow 40% fan speed yet with MSI afterburner i can have it from 20%(0speed) to 100%, also an option to disable this so that if i have issues with your overclocking tool i can use Afterburner without conflict.

                                            Hi guys,
                                            With version 3.1.2, CAM will not override your BIOS settings. If you change your fan profile, you can always revert to the BIOS setting by clicking on “Reset Settings”. We are looking into allowing fan percentages lower than 40%.
