1. Add camera to the app. There are a few different ways to do this. Your camera may or may not be a P2P camera. If the camera is not a P2P camera you will need to add the camera's parameters remotely which will be highlighted later in this article. If the camera does feature P2P then you can use the "Scan QR Code" method.


Add a camera via QR Code. This method makes setup extremely fast and easy.


Click "add" and choose "P2P Network" from the list of options. Click "Scan QR Code" (i.e., take a photo of) the QR code on the mounting bracket the camera, the App will add the camera automatically. You then need to enter the user name and password manually (default username: admin, password: 000000, you can change this later). Touch the save icon on the top right hand side of the screen to save the camera settings.

Manually Add Device If your camera is not a P2P model camera then you will need to manually add the camera's information to the app. Start by clicking "add" and choose either MJPEG Network (XX34A, XX41A, XX36A, XX42A, XX40A) or H.264 (XX59A, XX39A, XX49A, XX50A, XX69A, XX51A).


In the Add Device Info page input the Device name (the name of your choosing), the camera's IP address (found in the IP Cam Tool program on your computer), the port number for your camera, and the user name and password. Click on the save button at the top right hand side. The camera is now saved in the app and you can connect to it in the devices page.


NOTE: If you plan on viewing the cameras remotely with the app you would use the camera's DDNS address for the camera's IP address instead of the local address. If your camera is not a P2P model you will need to do port forwarding for each cam first before you will be able to view the cameras remotely within the app.


Automatically Search Device If your camera is not a P2P model camera than you will need to manually add the camera's information to the app. The easiest way to do this would be to search the network using the "search" feature on the add device page.


Go to add device and start by clicking "search" and choose either MJPEG Network (XX34A, XX41A, XX36A, XX42A, XX40A) or H.264 (XX59A, XX39A, XX49A, XX50A, XX69A, XX51A). Be sure that your wireless device is on the same wifi network as the cameras or the app will not be able to find your cameras.


The app will automatically list all the cameras found in your wifi network. Click on the device you would like to add. Input the user name and password and ensure all other parameters there are filled in correctly.


2. Connect Camera:

Touch the "Devices" icon at the bottom of the screen to connect (view) the camera. Just click on the camera to fully view and access it's feature.

3. Operate Camera:


While your phone is in vertical orientation you can take a snapshot, record video, and listen and talk with two-way audio by clicking on any one of the small icons located under the video. While the phone is in horizontal orientation you can still pan/tilt/zoom but you can not access any other settings.

You can also change motion detection settings, enable or disable motion detection, change resolution, and adjust video quality settings within the app. The motion detection and video quality settings can be accessed by clicking the gear icon at the top right hand side of the live video. Here you can disable motion, and change its sensitivity.

If you are in an area with poor internet service and are experiencing "choppy" or poor video quality, lowering the video quality settings in video info page will help to fix that.
