How your camera AP mode works?

AP mode allows smartphone to access camera’s WiFi directly, therefore can achieve remote video monitoring although there is no router/internet connection. It’s useful to installation scenarios for instance, users want to install an IP camera but there is no router or Internet connection. 

Nonetheless, if your camera switches to AP mode, remotely access the camera can’t be supported. Wish to use the AP mode, please keep reading the following content.

Step 1:  From camera's setting menu, click ‘Switch to AP mode', click 'Confirmed' to enter the AP mode, then the camera will reboot.

Something you need to note:  to Android Smartphones, the App can automatically find the IP camera in AP mode. Click 'Discover 1 new deices' then input WiFi password (default 12345678) to add the camera. If it has connection timeout issue, you may manually change the camera's WiFi password in your smartphone's WiFi setting (some Android system disallow App to modify the password).
