How Can We Help?
Thanks for your email. This is Steve from the support team.
You don’t need to re-active the camera to record the video. Once you have installed a micro SD card, the camera will start recording automatically. You may need to sync the camera’s time with your local time, because the camera will index the files based on the machine time.
This is the instruction to sync the camera’s time with your mobile phone. https://green-backyard.com/pages/how-to-set-birdhouse-cameras-time/ Once you have sync the time, you should be able to find the recording files. https://green-backyard.com/pages/how-to-playback-the-video-on-birdhouse-camera/
