2.7.1 Activate camera’s WiFi
After you have reset the camera, the camera’s internal WiFi (hot spot) will maintain off. You will need to perform 3 depress to activate the camera’s WiFi hot spot if you plan to use it.
The name of the camera’s WiFi hot spot starts with IPC_****, camera_*** or Beye_***. The below is the instruction to turn on the camera’s internal WiFi.
1. Please power up the camera and wait… until you hear the camera making the click sound.
2. Next, press the reset button three times (Video: https://youtu.be/LhqjA0BSYRU), wait for around one minute, and go to check your mobile phone’s WiFi setting. If the IPC_*** doesn’t appear, please turn off the phone WiFi and turn it on to have a new search. If you still don’t see the WiFi, please press three times again, but do it fast this time.
It will take a while before the camera’s hot spot appear in the mobile phone’s WiFi setting. Please be patient and don’t keep depressed three times. The three times press works similarly to our light switch.
Once you see the camera’s intenral WiFi (hot spot), you can even use the camera’s hot spot to watch the camera without involving your own network.
