How Can We Help?
Thanks for your message. This is Steve from the support team.
You can either connect the camera to your home WiFi network or use the camera’s internal WiFi as an access point. If you have hooked up the camera to your WiFi network, you can add the password to the camera. The camera will be password protected and you can access the camera through the internet.
If you plan to use the camera’s internal WiFi. The password is fixed. As the camera’s WiFi is isolated from your home WiFi in this case, only the direct connection between your mobile phone and the camera. it will not compromise the security of your network. Either way, you will have to make sure the WiFi signal is good enough to stream the high definition video. otherwise you can add the PLC adaptor to extend the WiFi signal around the birdhouse. This is the guide to test your home WiFi signal. https://green-backyard.com/pages/check-the-signal-before-setup-a-wifi-bird-box-camera/
You should use the mobile phone, tablet or computer to view the live video from the camera. You can’t output the video to TV through HDMI. The camera’s video signal is digitized. It is similar as you watch the video from Youtube. You need some device to decode the digital signal. I hope the information I provide helps.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
