CAM Ideas

We love getting your feedback! Voice your ideas here, and be sure to browse and vote on other ideas that interest you.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

    Hey there everyone, we just released a new patch today that will address the issues you guys may have.

    We will also be hosting a live AMA at 12:00PM PT on our subreddit. https://www.reddit.com/r/NZXT/

    Please drop by and ask us anything you like!

  3. 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?

  4. 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…

  5. Create a simple clean version of CAM.

    I would like to have the choice to download a lightweight and clean version of CAM software.Which only include ability to turn lights on/off, set pump/fan speed and be able to easy see the most important things like CPU, GPU temps on 4k screens and nothing more.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. A CAM that just tells me my temps and controls my Kraken

    Some folks surely do use all the features in your program, but i do not and i doubt i'm alone.

    I have 2 needs for CAM, detect my temps and the ability to control my CPU cooler.

    I do not need CAM's:
    Gaming overlay
    GPU overclocking
    HDD detection
    Network tracker
    FPS counter

    Right now you provide only one option, All of it.

    Perhaps you are aware of the community's desire for a CAM light. In my opinion CAM should be the bare bones with the smallest footprint/impact on a system, and all the extra should be CAM+ or something.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Integration between CAM and Philips Hue for better entertainment

    Hello NZXT!

    As announced on CES 2018, Philips and Razer Team Up for Game-Activated Hue Lights for collaboration that allows Philips Hue line of lights to integrate with Razer Chroma-enabled devices.

    Game developers can use Razer's Chroma SDK to built lighting effects that will impact Hue and Chroma devices, and many games have already adopted support, like Overwatch, Quake Champions, Factorio, Killing Floor 2, and more.

    Could you please also consider working with Philips to bring integration between NZXT CAM and Philips Hue products? Thus making possible to extend CAM lightening experience outside PC, to the whole room entertainment area.

  15. 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,…

  16. 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.).

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

    Hey there, thanks for the suggestion. We can definitely look into adding more features into the overlay text.

  19. 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

  20. 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…
