POWER THE CAMERA

GET THE SWANN SECURITY APP

  1. Download the latest version of the Swann Security app app from the Apple App Store® or Google Play™ Store on your iOS or Android device. Simply search for “Swann Security”.
  2. Open the app and create your Swann Security account. You will need to activate your account by confirming the email sent to the registered email account before you can sign in.

SWANN SECURITY APP

SET UP THE CAMERA

Launch the Swann Security app and sign in. Tap the Pair Device button on the screen (or open Menu Menu and select Pair Device) and follow the in-app instructions to set up your new camera. Before you begin, be close to your router or access point and have your Wi-Fi network information (including password) handy. Please note that the camera can connect to a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network only.

SET UP THE CAMERA

MOUNT THE CAMERA

The camera can be mounted on a flat surface using the included screws (and wall plugs). For best performance, make sure the camera location has good, reliable Wi-Fi reception available. Using the app, try streaming live video from the camera there. If you don’t experience any streaming issues (buffering, etc), you’ve found a good place for your device. As a general rule, the nearer your camera is to your Wi-Fi router, the better the wireless connection quality. You can boost the Wi-Fi coverage of your existing network by installing a Wi-Fi range extender.

TIPS

Motion detection

The camera’s PIR motion sensor detects heat signatures of moving objects. You’ll generally get good detection results by pointing the camera downwards at an angle where people will be moving across the coverage area before heading directly towards the camera.

LED indicator guide

The LED light on the front of your camera helps inform you of what is happening with the device.

  • Solid Red:  Live streaming / Motion recording
  • Slow Blinking Blue:  Wi-Fi Pairing mode
  • Fast Blinking Blue:  Connecting to Wi-Fi
