Adding Additional Cameras To A Cloud Account
If you are on a free trial version of Amcrest Cloud and would like to add an additional camera to your cloud account you will first need to upgrade your cloud account to a premium plan. Free trail plans are only applicable for one device per account. For more information on upgrading your cloud and pricing, please click here
If you are already on a premium cloud plan and would like to proceed with adding another camera, log into your Amcrest Cloud account on the Amcrest Cloud app or PC/Mac to begin.
Adding a Camera On Amcrest Cloud App
Step 1: To add a camera on the app, click on the icon in the main menu.
Step 2: From this menu, tap on Add Camera.
Step 3: Give your camera a name. This name can be anything you’d like the camera to be named i.e. "Kitchen", "Office", "Garage", etc. After giving your camera a name, click on Next to continue.
Step 4: Scan the QR code located on your device to automatically generate the serial number. You can also manually enter it in by typing it into the Enter camera S/N (serial number) field.
To begin, locate the serial tag on your device. The serial tag should be on the bottom/side of your device. Once you have located the serial tag, find the QR Code and scan hover your mobile device's camera over the code. The serial number will automatically populate in the Enter camera S/N (serial number) field.
If you are unsuccessful scanning the QR code you can enter the serial number for your device manually into the app. To do so, locate the serial number for your device on the serial tag and enter the serial number into the Enter camera S/N (serial number) field.
Note: If you receive the error message below, there may be an issue connecting your device to the cloud. Please ensure the camera on is or power cycle (reset) the camera.
