The ASH47-W camera has 2 methods of setup, you can set the camera up using Wi-Fi (which is recommended) or directly using an Ethernet connection. Please note, Both setup methods cannot be used simultaneously. There is not an Ethernet WIFI setup option available for Amcrest Smart Home devices. This article will detail how to set up the camera using the Ethernet Only method.
Before setting your camera up using the Ethernet Only method, ensure an Ethernet cable is plugged into the back of the camera and the camera is connected to your network. The camera is not POE and must be powered using the included power cable/adapter. Please ensure the camera and your mobile device are on the same network during setup.
Please note, before setting up the camera on any other platform, such as the Amcrest View Pro app or an NVR, the device must be connected to the Amcrest Smart Home app first.
