Processing Steps Of Camera and WI-FI connection failure:

  1. Please make sure you are using 2.4GHz WI-FI. In our experience, most users failto connect the WI-FI because of selecting 5GHz WIFI and adding the camera  If you don't know how to distinguish between the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WI-FI names on your router, we suggest you google the answer.
  2. Make sure you use the correct Wi-Fi password and a fastWI-FI network.
  3. Make sure the QR code on the phone screen is normal and the distance between the phone and the camera lens is 10-15cm (3.9-5.9inch) during the scanning process.
  4. Restore the product to factory settings, restart the router, and then add it again.
  5. After multiple attempts have failed, please contact customer service.
  6. III. Mounting the camera to the wall

    Note: In order to obtain the best product performance and avoid unnecessary environmental disturbances, please pay attention to the following during the installation process:

    1.Do not install the product nearly to the heat sources, such as outdoor units of air conditioners, kitchen exhausts, etc.

    2.Make sure there are no reflections within 5 feet (1.5 meters) of the PIR sensor, otherwise it will interfere with the normal function of the sensor.

    3.Try to avoid installing the product on the side of a lively road. Frequent pedestrians and vehicles will keep waking up the camera, resulting in frequent alarm messages and extremely fast power consumption.

    4.Do not install the product very far from the router, the product needs a good WI-FI signal to work properly.


    Tools needed:

    Step 1: Select the location where you need to install the camera, take the camera and the phone to the location, and use the "Installation Guide" in the application to diagnose the network and determine whether the WI-FI signal at the location is good.

    It is recommended to install the camera in a location with good WI-FI signal for smooth camera operation.

    Step 2: Use Power Drill and four screws. Secure the camera metal bracket to the wall, 8-10 feet off the ground (2.4m-3m) is recommended, snap the camera into the metal bracket and secure the camera with the four thumb screw.

    Recommended installation height: 8-10 feet (2.4m-3m) from the ground, at this height the sensor will provide a maximum detection distance of 35 feet (10m). For the best coverage, you can adjust the vertical angle of the camera to the appropriate angle. We recommend tilting the camera down at an angle of 15¬į.

7.PIR motion detection settings

Enter the application - "Settings" - "Motion Detection" interface, you can adjust the motion detection settings.

The device is used for 10 grades of PIR motion detection sensitivity.

1-3 belongs to the low gear sensitivity, motion detection distance of 4-5 meters.

4-7 belongs to the middle gear sensitivity, motion detection distance of 5-8 meters.

8-10 belongs to the high gear sensitivity, motion detection distance of 8-13 meters.

Warm tips: You can adjust the sensitivity of the motion detection to solve the following problems when using this product in the process .

1.If the phone receives alarm messages too often, the camera will greatly consume battery power. It is recommended to adjust the motion detection sensitivity downward and set the alarm interval to turn on the alarm plan.

2.If it is found that the phone frequently receives alarm pictures without moving objects, there may be sensitive heat sources within the range of motion detection, resulting in PIR false triggering, it is recommended to adjust the sensitivity of motion detection downward.

3.If you detect someone passing in front of the camera but cannot receive an alarm message, it is recommended to adjust the motion detection sensitivity upwards to increase the PIR detection range.

4.If you find that the alarm picture or video has a delay, or you can only see the back of the person, it is recommended to adjust the motion detection sensitivity upward.

5.PIR sensor will be interfered by the ambient temperature, it is recommended to adjust the sensitivity of motion detection upwards in hot temperature environment and downwards in cold temperature environment. At the same time in very low temperatures, heavy clothing will hinder the PIR sensor detection.

6.Sunlight UV rays will interfere with the PIR sensor, the camera's PIR in the case of direct exposure to strong sunlight, there is a probability that the alarm is not sensitive and other undesirable phenomena.

7.If you notice poor motion detection performance in nighttime environments, try turning off "Night Detection".


8.Battery Management

1.Charging the camera

It is recommended to use a 5V/2A power adapter for charging, connect the USB charging cable that comes with the product, and plug the charging cable into the USB charging port of the device.

Note: If there is no 5V/2A power adapter, other specifications of 5V power head can also be charged.

How to determine if the charge is successful?

The device's charging indicator lights up in red to indicate charging is in progress. The charging indicator lights up in blue, which means charging is complete. It takes about 10 hours or more to fully charge.

What if the charge fails? 

1.Determine whether the power adapter is good and try a different one.

2.Determine whether the USB charging cable is good and try a different one.

3.The charging indicator may be defective, check in the phone app to see if it is charging.

4.Determine if the device's charging port is poorly disconnected from the USB charging cable.

5.The device has a low temperature charging protection module, please do not charge the device at low temperature.

6.Contact Customer Service.

2.Battery life

If the device does not detect a moving object, the device will go into sleep mode to reduce the power consumption of the device.

If the device detects a moving object, it quickly wakes up and starts within 1 second and takes a screen-shot and records a video.

Warm tip: The device uses a ternary lithium battery, when the battery is in a low-temperature environment, the internal chemicals of the battery will slowly solidify, the battery charging and discharging performance slows down, resulting in a decrease in the capacity of the battery, the life of the device will be seriously reduced.And the lower the temperature, the lower the battery capacity will be, when the temperature is below -20 degrees, the battery has the probability to enter the self-protection mode and shut down. But if the temperature rises, the battery will automatically return to its normal state.

In cold winter, if the device needs to be charged, it is recommended to take the device back inside the house and set it aside for an hour, the warm air in the house will pull up the temperature of the battery before the charging action. Then recharge it. 

Why does the device have a poor battery life?

1.The working time of the device determines the battery life. The more frequently the PIR wakes up and the number of alarms, the longer the working time of the device. Please check whether the number of alarms is too frequent. It is recommended to adjust the motion detection sensitivity of the device appropriately and set the alarm interval and alarm time plan.

2.Check whether there are objects within the field of view of the device that interfere with and trigger the PIR sensor, such as outdoor units of air conditioners, moving cars, passing pedestrians, etc. The angle of the device can be adjusted appropriately to avoid these objects prone to cause interference

3.The battery capacity will be reduced in cold weather, which will affect the range of the device.

4.Contact Customer Service.
