    How come this is more complicated than installing a Windows OS on a laptop.

    This has got to be without doubt the absolute worst setup oversight I have ever seen for a PC peripheral.
    Almost every other camera on their site has a wizard…except for this one. Lovely!
    You get a camera that is supposed to be connected to the network prior to using the phone app.
    Okay!…that's normal… except if you don't have WPS, then you have no way to get onto the network.
    You are then essentially 'dead' in the water.
    How dumb is this?

    This will not set up no matter what I do.
    The camera can be found by my phone but does not connect to the whole network.

    No flashing orange light (red maybe). No solid green light just a constant flashing green light.

    Sick of trying and no trouble shooting offered. Pretty poor device.

    AND YES I have reset everything on several occasions

    if I was a theif I would just unplug the power. Flip the camera to stare at the wall etc. This is a terrible "security" device. SO easily stolen too.

    This is crazy theirs no setup wizard for the camera on the website . Therefor i cannot sign up. Cant connect to the app on my phone went through steps about 6 times in every way i could still nothing … On the phone with tech support and they don't know what the hell is going on either just wonderful . Drove 3 hrs to get this so i could watch my grandfather in case he falls down. Now i have to drive back 3 hrs to return it for something that may do the same thing again ! Can you say waste of time?…… If you have a gopro laying around use that and save yourself 45 mins on the phone trying to figure out something that does not work in the first place !

    Is it possible to connect to the cloud with a PC? This only explains using iPhone or Android app, which I don't have access to. I already have a Dlink account for browser access to the camera, but I need this camera connected somehow.

    The set up asks for the encryption mode. Where is the encryption mentioned in this video?
