Here is a simple guide that will walk you through the features available in the AirSight App


Getting to know the AirSight app

Upon running the app for the first time you will be presented with a blank CAMERA LIST


Use the icons along the bottom of the screen to navigate between the different tabs


After you've added your cameras to the app - you will return to the ADD CAMERA tab to see your list of cameras as well as their status


Use the EDIT button to delete cameras from your list


The SEARCH BAR can be used to quickly locate a specific camera in your list


To edit the settings for the camera tap the SETTINGS ARROW to the right of the camera name to access the EDIT CAMERA MENU


From the EDIT CAMERA MENU you can:


  • Rename the camera
  • Reconnect the camera if it's gone off line.
  • Reboot the camera

NOTE: The PASSWORD field, while editable, will NOT change the P2P password for your camera. (See the Security Code Menu section below).

Advanced Settings Menu

The ADVANCED SETTINGS menu shows the current setting for the camera.

To edit tap the RIGHT ARROW button to access that setting's menu options.


Security Code Menu

You can change the P2P password for your camera from the SECURITY CODE menu

  • OLD: Type the password your want to change
  • NEW: Type your newly chosen password
  • CONFIRM: Re-Type your newly chosen password
  • Tap OK to SAVE.


Video Quality Menu

Use the VIDEO QUALITY menu to adjust the quality of the image


Video Flip Menu

If the need to mount the camera in an abnormal position arises, use the VIDEO FLIP menu to change the orientation of the image:

  • NORMAL: Default orientation
  • VERTICAL FLIP: For mounting camera upside down.
  • HORIZONTAL FLIP: Mirror Image orientation


Environmental Mode Menu

Use ENVIRONMENT MODE menu to select the appropriate mode for the cameras viewing environment:


  • INDOOR MODE: Used for normal indoor environments (50-60Hz)

Power line frequency or mains frequency is the frequency of the oscillations of alternating current (AC) in an electric power grid transmitted from a power plant to the end-user. In large parts of the world this is 50 Hz, although here in America, and some parts of Asia it is typically 60 Hz. AirSight IP cameras have multi-voltage (100-240VAC, 50-60Hz) power supplies for use in both environments - the Light Frequency is simply to communicate to the software which one is in use - however it is unlikely that changing from 50Hz to 60Hz will provide a noticeable difference.

  • OUTDOOR MODE: Used for cameras mounted outdoors or facing out windows

NOTE: Facing a camera out a window renders them useless for night time viewing due to the reflection of the IR LEDs.

  • NIGHT MODE: Select this mode if Night Vision is the sole operating environment

The AirSight IP cameras will switch to Night Vision in all environmental modes when a change in light is detected. NIGHT MODE should only be chosen if the camera will not be utilized in daylight environments.

WiFi Menu

Use the WIFI menu to program the camera to your wireless network

Locate your wireless network from the list of available networks


Tap your network name in the CHOOSE A NETWORK list to access the JOIN NETWORK menu


Type in your WiFi password (case sensitive) and tap JOIN

Motion Detection Menu

Since the AirSight IP cameras have built-in motion detection the AirSight app can track each instance as an event and save it to the EVENTS list on the EVENTS tab.

Use the MOTION DETECTION menu to adjust the camera's sensitivity to motion.


If you own an AirSight HD SD P2P camera (XX59A) you can also setup the camera to record video on motion to the SD card.

  • Instructions can be found: HERE

About Device Menu

The cameras current firmware version can be located in the ABOUT DEVICE menu under VERSION

For AirSight models with SD recording features, you can also determine the size of the on-board SD card (not included) as well as the amount of free space available.


Indicator Menu

Use the INDICATOR menu to adjust the frequency at which the red indicator light on the front of the camera flashes.


Live View

While your phone is in vertical orientation you can access all of the features available for your camera by clicking on the small icons located along the bottom of the screen:
