Firmware Version Menu

The FIRMWARE VERSION menu displays your camera's current firmware version


Environmental Mode Menu

Use the 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.



Use the LOCALRECORD tab to access your VIDEO and SNAPSHOTS


Use the VIDEO and SNAPSHOT tabs at the top of the screen to navigate between them


Tap the ARROW to the right of the camera's name to access the PHOTO or VIDEO menu
