Amcrest Smart Home devices such as deterrent cameras, doorbells, or other related Amcrest Smart Home devices, excluding battery cameras, are capable of connecting to both the Amcrest Smart Home app as well as the Amcrest View Pro app.
However, since Amcrest Smart Home devices function primarily on a cloud-based platform setting up an Amcrest Smart Home device to the Amcrest View Pro app will result in only live view being available and must be set up first using the Amcrest Smart Home app. If using push notifications, please make sure push notifications settings are established in the Amcrest Smart Home app, prior to adding the device to view pro. For more information on activating push notifications, click here.
For more information on how to add your specific device using the Amcrest Smart Home app, please refer to the Quick Start Guide for your specific device.
If you would like to view your Amcrest Smart Home devices using the Amcrest View Pro app, please refer to the information provided below.
