To be honest, I tried it several times as well. It does contain some problems during the connection process. Here are some notes I made.


Do remember to reset the camera before the connection.

Start to connect the camera to app after you hear the continuous "di di di" peeping sound.

It doesn't matter the indicator is green or red during the connection process. After the connection, red means offline, green means online, and yellow means connection timeout.

The default old admin password is 888888, but it may not work. If you have this problem, please contact the after-service, they will feed back to the manufacturer to solve your issue as soon as possible.

The camera only supports the standard WiFi connection and wired connection, 5G network is not approved.

Make sure your WiFi internet does work and is not shared by too many people, otherwise even you successfully connected both devices, you cannot use the camera as well, and the indicator is yellow.

yellow indicator means you cannot use the camera

If you keep connecting the camera with your phone, the battery will consume very fast and the phone will become heated. So we suggest you connect the camera when necessary.
