Do I need to have a Micro SD card to record?

However, with recording you would need to be viewing the camera the whole time and start/stop the recording manually, this feature is only designed for a few minutes of recording.
-With the SD card installed you can configure the camera to record directly to the Micro SD card, these settings can be found in the camera setting via the mobile app. There are instructions for these features under the FAQ section on the product support page.
To view recorded footage, select the options button on the app home screen (small circle with 2 dots in it) and select the icon that looks like a picture. Saved footage is stored there.

In order to use the talk feature, please hold down the microphone button in the app, wait 5 seconds, then proceed to talk while still holding down the talk button.
I am unable to connect my camera to WiFi/internet using the Quick Setup or Manual setup
In order to successfully connect to WiFi/Internet your network encryption should be WPA2. Please make sure you are not using any special characters in your password such as !,@,# etc. Additionally, if your WiFi network has a 5Ghz band please make sure you are trying to connect using a 2.4Ghz band. In your router settings please check the broadcast mode and make sure it is broadcasting in b/g instead of b/g/n.
I forgot my camera password, how do I reset it?
If you forgot your camera password, you would need to reset the camera to factory settings and setup the camera as new. To do so, hold a pin in the reset hole on the bottom of the camera for about 10 seconds. If you have trouble locating the reset button, shine a light in the reset hole so you can see the button that needs to be pushed. Please wait for the camera to restart, then, proceed to setup again with the cameras default password “admin”.
