    A. Yes. By default notifications will be sent to the App for sound and movement detection.  These can be changed in the settings.

    Q. Can the camera be turned off from the App?

    A. Yes you can go into settings and turn the camera off.  We recommend this method rather than switching off at the wall to avoid the start-up process.

    A. The camera does not have a waterproof rating. It has an AC power plug and is intended for indoor use.

    Q. Does the camera have battery power?

    A. No AC only.

    Q. What are the recording options?

    A.

    Q. How close does the camera have to be to WiFi?

    A. The camera needs to be in “WiFi range” which is 40-45 metres however the best and most reliable performance is achieved when the camera is closest to the WiFi router. When connecting the camera for the first time you should be within 1-2 metres of the WiFi router.

    Q. What is the recording time of the SD Cards?

    Your camera will be set up with "Intelligent tracking" which means it only records when there is sound or video recorded.  You can of course record for the whole time if you wish.
