The camera does not recognise the SD card.

Reason:

  1. SD card is not initialised
  2. SD card is faulty
  3. SD card slot is damaged

Solution:

  1. Insert the SD card into the SD card slot, format the SD card with the Yale View app
  2. Try the SD card on PC/smartphone/other devices, check whether the SD card is damaged. If it is a bad SD card, please try another one
The camera disconnects frequently, the connection is not stable.

Reason:

  1. The camera is too far away from your Wi-Fi router/AP or there are too many obstacles between your router and camera, therefore the signal is not very good.
  2. There are too many devices linked to your Wi-Fi which occupies too much bandwidth.
  3. There are too many Wi-Fi signals nearby, which can cause interference.
  4. The upload bandwidth is not high enough.

Solution:

  1. Put your smartphone in the same location as your camera, and check the Wi-Fi signal.
  2. Please check with your Internet service provider whether your bandwidth is high enough. Are any other applications or devices within this network having connection or performance issues?
  3. Change the Wi-Fi channel of your router to decrease Wi-Fi interference.
I can see the camera under my device list, but when I try to live view it’s not streaming.
  1. Please check the LED indicator status of your camera to see if your camera is connected to Internet.
  2. Please check the Internet access of your smartphone, if the signal is too weak there may be problems with streaming.
  3. If you are not able to stream the video even when your smartphone is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your camera, your camera’s Wi-Fi signal may be too weak.

As Wi-Fi coverage always has its limitation, we have some suggestions:

  1. Please make sure there are not too many objects around your Wi-Fi router or camera, as this can decrease the Wi-Fi signal.
  2. If your Router or camera has external antennas, please try to change the antennas’ direction to see if this improves the signal.
  3. Try to put your camera in a new location where it has better signal.
  4. If your house is very big, and the place where you want to locate the camera is out of the Wi-Fi range, you can consider adding a range extender to extend the Wi-Fi coverage.
I have insert a Micro SD card, but there are still no video recordings?
  1. Check if the Micro SD is inserted into the slot properly.
  2. Pull down at the top of the Home Page of Yale View app to refresh the device list.
  3. Go to check the Storage Status. If the memory card status displays as “OFF”, click “Format Storage Device”. You will need to enter the device password. The status will then change to “ON”. You can then start recording any event triggered video in the camera such as motion detection.
