Por favor, navegue até as configurações do dispositivo clicando na tela de vídeo do dispositivo e, em seguida, clicando no ícone de engrenagem no canto superior direito da tela. De lá, por favor, clique nas configurações de segurança e, em seguida, na detecção de movimento. Você pode alterar suas configurações de segurança dessa interface ou desativá-las completamente.

How do I share camera footage with a friend or family?

The friend or family member would need to sign up for a new account within the Alcidae App. Log into your account and click the live feed for the camera you would like to share access with. Click the share icon on the upper right of the corner to enter the sharing page. Input the friend or family member’s account username into the section (Email or phone) and hit OK. Have the friend or family member log into their App and in the home page click the lower right profile icon to enter the profile page. Click the messages tab to accept the share from you to activate the share.

How much is the cloud service and how would it be charged?

The cloud service is $5/device/month charged to a credit card or a paypal account.

With the cloud service, you receive short clips for each of the event notifications. In addition, you will receive 7 rolling days of footage.

We provide 30 days of free cloud trial (for your 1st camera). You will have the option to opt out anything through the App.

What is a 2.4ghz bandwidth anyway??

Many homes have a “dual band” router. These broadcast your internet in 2 ways (2.4ghz and 5ghz). While 5ghz is faster and ideal for streaming movies and playing games, it doesn’t have the same range as 2.4ghz. So a 2.4 connection can actually be much better when you are further away from it.

How do I know if I have a dual band network?

Most dual band routers will name the SSID alike but a place a number at the end. An example would be Johnsinternet and Johnsoninternet-5g. If you have two similarly named options in your network settings, simply select the one without the 5.

After I set up my camera, does my phone need to stay connected to 2.4?

Nope. This is simply for the set-up process.

Do I need to subscribe to cloud service to have my camera operating?

No it is not required for you to subscribe to cloud service. Without the cloud service you will still be able to view live footage, save live footage, two way audio, access share and receive motion/sound detection. However with the cloud subscription you would have 7 days of cloud video backup/playback in place and all the motion/sound detected event clips.

Do you currently offer a web, PC or mac version?

No. At this time, we only offer apps for android and ios devices.

What do I do if I recently changed my WiFi network settings (name or password)?

Be sure that your phone is connected to the new WiFi network that is using the 2.4 Ghz network connection. Unplug and replug in the camera power source just as if you are setting up a new camera. Hold down the reset button for 5 seconds until you hear a “WiFi reset success voice prompt” or when you see the indicator light blinks/flashes blue.Log into your Alcidae App to add device (hit the plus button at home page) and it should be able to locate the camera using the new WiFi settings within a few minutes.

How do I reset my device?

Nós estamos contentes por você ter perguntado! Na parte de trás de cada dispositivo, há um botão de reinicialização circular que você pode pressionar por 10 segundos para redefinir o dispositivo. Por favor, apenas redefinir o dispositivo se 1) configuração pela primeira vez, ou 2) re-adicionando um dispositivo após o dispositivo ter sido excluído do aplicativo.

What should I do if my Wifi does not reach my garage?

Existem algumas maneiras de resolver esse problema. Por favor, considere a compra de um extensor WiFi ou repetidor dependente da sua infra-estrutura WiFi. Além disso, emparelhe seu dispositivo Garager com o aplicativo enquanto estiver próximo ao roteador e, somente depois de emparelhar o dispositivo com o aplicativo, tente testar a conexão WiFi em sua garagem.

Do I need any tools for installing my Garager?

Yes – but not too many! You will need a small Flathead screwdriver as well a tool to strip the plastic casing off of the end of the Garager wiring.

How can I turn off Motion and Sound Alerts?
