So, let’s talk about how we can successfully do a Foscam Setup by following some easy steps. I will show you how you can set up your Foscam camera by following the QR Code Method. To access the QR code, you will need the Foscam App on your smartphone, and then you can easily configure your camera.
This process will need to enter the WIFI details into the Foscam app, and then a picture of the barcode will appear on your smartphone. Then you have to point your phone screen at the camera, and then the camera can automatically configure itself with the login information for the WIFI network.
Before going through Foscam Setup
- Download the Foscam app from your Google play store or Apple store and then install it
- Or you can click below links to have Foscam directly on your PC
- Turn on the camera and verify if it’s set to the factory settings
- If you are unable to verify the process, please perform a hard reset on the device. You need to press and hold the reset button down for 12-15 seconds. After succeeding, perform the movement test and tilt the camera.
- Connect your smartphone to the Wifi network and also you need to verify if the WIFI network is operating on the 2.4 GHz frequency
- Check if the smartphone and camera are within 3 meters (10 feet) of the WIFI router
- Don’t power off camera while setting it up
