Install the Camera
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 manually which will be highlighted later in this article. If the camera does feature P2P then you can use the "Scan QR Code" method.
All other models skip to Manually Add Device
Add a P2P 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.
NOTE: If you plan on viewing the cameras remotely (outside of your local network) with the app you must first setup your cameras do so HERE and use the camera's external IP address instead of the local IP 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.
