Amcrest View Pro Setup (Adding cameras to additional devices)

Add your camera to other smart phones or tablets by using the P2P setup method if you’ve initially set up the camera on the internet.

Amcrest View for iOS: Requires iOS 6.0 or later.

Amcrest View for Android: Requires Android 3.0 or later.

Step 1

Connect the camera to a power supply using the included power adapter. Wait 30 seconds for the camera to start-up and initialize.

Step 2
Connect the camera to the internet, either through a wired or WiFi connection. Either by using the App Setup method or Desktop Access Setup method.

The camera will open on your mobile device to scan the QR code located on the device you’re adding to Amcrest View. Alternatively, you can enter in the Serial Number manually. Your mobile device may request permissions to allow the application to use your camera. Once accepted your mobile device will then be ready to scan the QR code.



Step 10

Once the QR code is scanned or the serial number has been added to your app, you will then be prompted to give your camera a name. This name can be unique to your camera and can be named anything you wish. After you name your camera, please enter the camera's username and password. The default username and password is admin. Once this information is entered, please press "Start Live View" to continue.



The live stream from your camera will be presented in the Live View screen.
