We advise you to turn off the monitor when installing the ELRO Babycam app. To connect the camera to the ELRO Babycam app, you need to connect the adapter and set the switch to the ON position first. You should then connect your phone to the Wi-Fi signal that is transmitted by the camera. You can only connect the camera with a 2,4 GHz Wi-Fi signal (5GHz Wi-Fi is not possible). We recommend using a properly secured network for the installation to ensure
the security of the system. If you have an Android smartphone, follow the steps under “Android smartphone. If you have an iOS smartphone, follow the steps under “iOS smartphone”.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ) and troubleshooting

Are you having problems with the installation of this device? Please visit www.elro.eu/faq to get a quick answer to your question. Here you will find the latest version of the instruction manual, answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ) and detailed installation videos.

  • My camera is out of range.
    • Make sure the antenna of the monitor is fully extended when using the system. This will result in an optimal range of the baby monitor.
  • I’m unable to connect the camera with my smartphone.
    • For the installation of the app you need to have a pure 2.4GHz wifi signal. This means that you cannot use a combined wifi signal that transmits both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. Before the installation, the 5GHz signal must be temporarily switched off. After the installation, the 5GHz signal can simply be switched back on again.
    • Another possibility is to create a separate 2.4GHz ‘guest network’.
    • Do not open the app again until the camera light is off.
  • I can’t see the wifi that the camera sends out on my phone.
    • If the wifi name does not appear in the wifi list, you can use the alternative connection method explained earlier.
  • I can’t watch the camera’s live view when using 4G.
    • Use a separate 2.4GHz wifi signal. This is usually a ‘calmer’ connection.
  • Is my baby monitor secure?
    • Yes, the baby monitor uses FHSS. This means that the frequency jumps every few seconds, making it difficult for a third party to pick up the signal.
    • It is only possible to install the baby monitor in the app if you are in the vicinity of the camera. This prevents any approach by external parties. Moreover, the app forces you to create a secure password which is difficult to crack by outsiders.
    • Furthermore, no personal data is stored, which makes the use of the system extra secure.
