Why the camera cannot detect moving objects?
- Check that all motion detection settings are enabled in the app.
- If you need to recognize animals, you need to turn off “Alert when only people appear”.
- It is recommended to install the camera at a height of 2-3 meters and tilt it down about 15 degrees to enlarge the area of motion detection.
- Increase the sensitivity of motion detection.
- The range of motion detection is limited. Moving objects that are 8 meters away from the camera are difficult to detect successfully.
- It is not recommended to install the camera in a small space as it will greatly affect the motion detection area.
Why the alarm image can only be photographed from behind?
After PIR detects a moving object, it activates the camera and takes a screenshot within a second.
- If the subject is moving too fast, there is a high possibility that only the back can be photographed.
- Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to enlarge the detection area.
- Try aiming the camera at an open area, which is helpful for increasing the spatial coverage area.
Why can’t the phone receive the alarm push message?
You have to activate the push authorization of the app in order to receive push notifications normally. The first time you download the app and sign in to it, a pop-up window will ask you to activate the permission.

Why there is no moving object but the alarm is sent frequently?
PIR was accidentally triggered. There may be objects in the motion detection area that could easily trigger an alarm, e.g. B. a running air conditioner or a car. Solution:
- It is recommended not to install the camera by the roadside or in crowded scenes.
- To avoid accidental triggering, do not point the camera at a heat source similar to an outdoor unit in an air conditioner.
- Avoid exposing the camera lens directly to the sun’s rays to avoid accidentally triggering it.
- Adjust the sensitivity of motion detection to narrow the camera’s motion detection area.
- 5.An alarm schedule can be set to appropriately divide the time the camera will alarm.
- 6.The alarm interval of the camera can be set to avoid uninterrupted alarms.
- 7.It is recommended to set the maximum recording time of the camera to 10 seconds.
How to charge the camera?
We are sorry that our product does not contain a power adapter, but there is a charging cable. It is recommended that you remove the camera and return it to the house first.

Why the camera consumes electricity quickly?
The battery life of the camera depends on how often the camera works. The more often the camera is woken up to work, the faster the battery will be used up. According to laboratory test data, the battery can be used for 3-5 months if the camera is stimulated to wake up 15 times a day. If your camera’s battery drains very quickly, please check whether the camera is triggered too often. It is recommended to place the camera in a work environment with a smooth and stable network.
How to improve the battery life of the camera?
Solutions for fast battery discharge:
1.It is recommended not to install the camera by the roadside or in crowded scenes.
2.To avoid false triggering of PIR, do not point the camera at a heat source similar to an outdoor unit of an air conditioner.
3.Avoid having the camera lens directly facing the sun rays to avoid false triggering of PIR.
4.Adjust the sensitivity of the alarm to narrow the camera’s motion detection area.
5.An alarm schedule can be set to properly schedule the camera’s alarm period.
6.The alarm interval of the camera can be set to avoid uninterrupted alarms.
7.Set the maximum recording time of the camera to 10 seconds.

Why the battery is not durable after charging?
Do not charge the camera in low temperatures. If you need to charge the camera especially in winter, please bring it back to your house and leave it for an hour. Wait for the battery to warm up before charging it.
Why the battery is not durable when the solar panel is connected?
1.The charging efficiency of the solar panel is low. If the camera alarms too often, the power consumption of the camera will be much higher than the charging capacity of the solar panel and the battery will be used up faster.
2.Please check if the solar panel is working normally. Check the steps: If there is enough sun, check that the camera’s charging indicator is on and that the charging status is displayed on the APP.
3.To ensure that the solar panel receives enough sunlight, it is recommended that the panel be installed in an open environment to ensure that it is exposed to sunlight for more than 5 hours a day.
Can I change the battery myself?

Why are there white spots in the night vision image?
The night vision function of the camera is realized by the principle of infrared light, which has a light collecting effect. There should be no obstacles or walls within two meters of the camera screen. Otherwise infrared rays will collect here and cause overexposure.
Why is the night vision image so dark?
The night vision function of the camera may not be activated. It is recommended to set the basic functions day and night mode-night mode in the APP and control them via software in order to force the switching of the night vision function.
