1. Use included WiFi Baby CD-ROM, or download from our homepage APPS, DOWNLOADS, SUPPORT sidebar or links below. Unzip, keep software icon on desktop for easy setup.
2. Remove protective film from lens, attach stand, connect AC adaptor and Ethernet cable to camera.
3. Plug camera into power and ethernet cable to wireless router NOT your PC or Mac. Once camera is connected to router the green power light will blink amber. The ethernet cable is only for the wireless setup process.
4. Click setup software icon. It will search for your camera on your network. Click REFRESH if camera does not appear right away. If using Mac and camera does not appear, see “Mac Setup 1.4 Software: Troubleshooting” under SUPPORT at wifibaby.net.
5. Highlight camera, Click SETUP. For username / password use admin / 1234.
6. Choose “Obtain IP address automatically” and “Obtain DNS server automatically” and click OK. Highlight and click OPEN. Use all default settings; a static (unchanging) IP can be used later if needed. Note your IP address.
7. Your default web browser will now open to the sign in screen. Bookmark your IP address on your browser. Click SETTINGS. For best performance, we highly recommend using Explorer for PC, Firefox for Mac or download our “Multi Cam Viewer” for PC/Mac on our homepage sidebar.
8. Before using the Wizard you will need to know your router’s wireless password encryption type – WEP / WPA/ WPA2. Don’t know? The Wizard should pick it automatically when it scans for available networks. You can also go to NETWORK >WIRELESS SETUP>SEARCH on camera, your router’s manual or Screenshots at SUPPORT>TROUBLESHOOTING>STEP #1 at wifibaby.net.
9. Click WIZARD located on the top right of the settings screen. Give your camera a name, “high” for picture quality, pick time zone scan for available wireless networks. A list of networks will appear. Select, enter wireless password, correct encryption type should prepopulate-WEP, WPA, WPA2- and choose AUTOMATIC for IP.
10. Click FINISH and wait 30 seconds for the camera to reboot. Unplug camera from power and Ethernet and plug it back in without an Ethernet connection. Go back to your bookmarked IP address on your browser. Click Live View on the sign in screen and enter admin / 1234. Enter same IP/password into apps. To change your password or add user: SETTINGS>TOOLS>USER MANAGEMENT.
You are now wireless! Visit SUPPORT for complete camera and app setup guides.
If you can’t connect after setup you have picked the wrong encryption (WEP, WPA, WPA2) or your camera needs a STATIC IP.
If your router has WEP, on the latest Wizard setup, the camera detects WEP64 or 128, it will populate with the correct type.
The camera will then automatically choose WEP Authentication type as “Auto” which will work with both Open and Shared key.
It cannot tell if it is HEX or ASCII. However, there are some simple rules of thumb.
– If the WEP password is 5 characters, it’s WEP 64-bit ASCII
– If the WEP password is 10 characters, it’s WEP 64-bit HEX
– If the WEP password is 13 characters, it’s WEP 128-bit ASCII
– If the WEP password is 26 characters, it’s WEP 128-bit HEX
Static IP: Different brands of routers have different rules with assigning IPs. Your router may assign your camera a dynamic (changing) IP everytime its unplugged so you may need to assign a static (non-changing) IP address to your camera. This is easily done and explained in Troubleshooting step #2 under SUPPORT > TROUBLESHOOTING.
**Audio on iPhone, iPad and Android Apps: Set audio on 5.9 AMR Bit Rate on camera under SETTINGS> CAMERA>CAMERA SETUP>AMR BIT RATE. 3-5 second audio/video delay from “live” is normal because of buffering time between camera and receiver.
