Position the app-generated QR code that displays on your smartphone towards the lens of the camera after hearing the voice prompt “For WiFi configuration, please put the two-dimensional code towards the camera lens”. The best scanning distance is 15cm (5.9 inch).
Tips: Foscam cameras are using two methods “wireless broadcast packets” and “QR code identification” for Wi-Fi configuration at the same time. If the former runs faster and the WiFi is successfully connected, there will be no QR code on your phone.
When hearing the voice prompt "Wi-Fi connecting", please stop QR code scanning and wait for adding the camera until you hear the message “Congratulations! Successfully added”.
