Install SwitchBot App and sign up SwitchBot account.
(If you are a SwitchBot user already, please skip this step.)
Launch the App and tap "Sign in"on the left side menu.
Turn on your phone's Bluetooth service and allow the SwitchBot app to access your location. Tap "+" on the App, choose "Indoor Cam".
Power on the camera and make sure the indicator light is flashing rapidly or a prompt tone is heard. It might take a few seconds for the camera to start scanning. Then tap next.
Select a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network and enter the password. Only 802.11b/g/n, 2.4GHz, IPV4 wireless network can be connected.
Scan the QR code on the app with the camera. You may need to light up the lightness of the phone so that the camera could scan the QR code properly. After you hear a prompt sound, tap I heard a prompt.
Please place the QR code around 10~20cm in front of the camera. If the camera doesn't scan the code, please try adjusting the phone to a different angle and distance.
When the indicator light is coming from flashing slowly (1.5 seconds per time) to flashing rapidly (0.25 seconds per time), it means the Indoor Cam is waiting to connect to the network. When the indicator light turns green and stays on, the camera has been connected successfully. Now you can set a name for the camera and finish the setup.
1- If the indicator light is flashing rapidly (0.25 seconds per time) between red and green, it means the Indoor Cam has connected to the router successfully but failed to connect to the network.
2- If the indicator light is flashing slowly (1.5 seconds per time) between red and green, it means the network connection is abnormal.
Please check the network and do the setup again.
After a few minutes after step 5, the "Whoops! Add Device" screen appears and i cannot proceed to step 6.
It's a Wi-Fi password, but it's correct because I was able to connect to other devices without any problems. Only this camera will result in an error. How can I solve it?
I understand the cause of the connection error. This was because the Wi-Fi SSID name displayed by default in step 4 was 5.0 GHz instead of 2.4 GHz. After correcting the Wi-Fi SSID name field to a 2.4GHz name, the connection was successful.
