  1. Hi there, I have the same problem as described above. I have repeated the process with the reset a couple of times. No difference! The camera is not connecting to WiFI anymore. In the direct mode I’m askfor the Camera password. I thought that will also be reset automatically but I I not have the initial password (not for WIFI! For the camera)

    1. I apologized for any inconvenience issue. When you connect the camera to your WiFi network, You have added the password to the camera. It is on the step 9th in this guide.

      If you don’t remember to password, you will have to reset the camera. Please depress and hold the reset button for more than 10 seconds. Please understand the camera will be disconnected from your WiFi network after you reset, So you will need to follow the above guide to connect the camera back to your WiFi network.

      Hope the above information is helpful.

  2. Hello. We had the camera set up last year and everything worked fantastic. This year we won’t get the camera to work. We’ve reset the camera and then followed instruction here: Unfortunateyl when it comes to the step where the APP searches the network for the camera, the camera is not found. In general the camera works because it makes to click sounds after reboot.
    Any advice?

    1. You may need to reset your camera. Firstly, power up the camera and wait for around two seconds until you hear the click sounds.
