    Setup the connection & installation


    Setting up your Owltron security camera and connecting it to your Owltron App account is a straightforward process. Let's walk through the steps together:

    Step 1 Prepare your account

    Before starting, make sure to turn on Bluetooth on your mobile device. Then, open the Owltron app and log in to your account, ensuring a secure 2.4G Wi-Fi connection.

    Step 2 Configuration network

    First off, On the app's home page, locate and select the 'Add Device' option. Choose the corresponding device icon for your Owltron security camera model. Next, you'll need to activate the camera and configure your Wi-Fi information by following the instructions on Owltron App. Power on your Owltron camera and use the camera's built-in scanning feature to scan the QR code displayed on your phone. This establishes a secure connection between your camera and phone. Ensure that the camera's lens is aligned with the QR code on your phone's screen(distance between 15-20cm) for a successful scan. 

    Step 3 Adjust Settings

    Once you have successfully connected your Owltron security camera to the Owltron App, take a moment to explore the various settings available. Customize your camera's behavior to suit your preferences and needs. Within the app, you can adjust settings such as motion detection sensitivity, notification preferences, recording modes, and more. 

    Step 4 Testing camera

    After adjusting the settings, it's essential to test the functions of your Owltron camera to ensure everything is in working order. Start by checking the live video feed to confirm a clear and stable image. Explore additional features such as two-way audio, night vision, and remote pan/tilt capabilities, if applicable. Verify that the motion detection feature triggers timely alerts and that you receive notifications as expected. You can also explore other features by checking our relevant blog posts.

    Step 5 Install camera

    For outdoor installation, identify a suitable location that provides a wide field of view and covers the desired monitoring areas. Ensure the camera is protected from direct sunlight and harsh weather conditions. Using the included screws, anchor holders, and brackets, securely mount the camera on a sturdy surface, such as a wall or eave. Adjust the camera's angle and direction to achieve the best perspective for surveillance. 

    For indoor installation, select a strategic location that covers key areas of interest within your premises. You can either place the camera on a flat surface or use the included bracket for wall or ceiling mounting. Position the camera at a height and angle that captures the desired field of view. This ensures comprehensive coverage and maximum effectiveness.

    Top FAQs:

    Q: Can the device be connected to the public network?

    A: Only public networks that log in with a fixed password can connect to our device, while public networks that log in with an account and password or verification code cannot connect to our device.

    Note: To protect your privacy, the security camera is not recommended to use on public networks and networks without passwords for network configuration.

    Q: How is a 5 GHz network signal weaker than a 2.4 GHz network signal when penetrating walls?

    A: A 2.4 GHz network has better wall penetration performance than a 5 GHz network does. This is determined by the physical characteristics of the electromagnetic wave: the longer the wavelength and the smaller the attenuation, the easier it is to penetrate obstacles. 5 GHz signals have a high frequency and a short wavelength and 2.4 GHz signals have a low frequency and a long wavelength. Therefore, 5 GHz signals have larger attenuation through obstacles and poorer wall penetration capabilities than 2.4 GHz signals. Therefore, most smart devices do not support 5Ghz networks.

    Q: What should I do when my device fails to enter the network configuration state?
