Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I share with family and friends?
    Yes, you can share your cameras with family and friends who will have access to view the camera and control your bulbs, plugs, and other Geeni devices. In the Geeni app, press the Profile button and click on the “Device Sharing” button, and you will be able to give or revoke sharing permissions. In order to share, the other user should already have downloaded the Geeni app and registered a new account.
  2. How does the pre-installed microSD card work:
    The camera has a preinstalled 16GB microSD card and will continuously record until the card is full. This video is encrypted and only viewable through the Geeni app on your phone; you can remove the pre-installed microSD card, in order to install a larger capacity card, but you cannot view the footage saved on the microSD card outside of the Geeni app.
  3. How much video can the camera record?
    Depending on the video quality, the camera will use around 1GB of storage to record 24 hours of footage. This can mean an entire day of continuous footage, or multiple days of motion-only recording. As the card fills up, the oldest footage will be automatically replaced by new video. If you would like to increase your internal storage space, visit MyGeeni. com for an instructional video on how to open up the camera and install a larger microSD card.
  4. How many cameras can I control?
    Geeni’s app can control an unlimited amount of devices in an unlimited amount of locations. Your router may have a limit of how many devices can be connected to one router.
  5. My Geeni device has a funny name. How do I rename it?
    From your main device list, click on one of the devices you want to rename, press the ” ” button on the top right for advanced settings, and click Modify Device Name. You’ll then be able to choose a more familiar name.
  6. The device appears offline or unreachable, what should I do?
    Make sure your Wi-Fi router is online and in range and check that you have the latest Geeni functionality by clicking “Check for firmware update” in your device settings.
  7. What’s the wireless range?
    The range of your home Wi-Fi is heavily dependent on your home router and the conditions of the room. Check with your router specifications for exact range data.
  8. If my Wi-Fi/Internet goes down, will Geeni still work?
    Geeni products need to be connected to Wi-Fi in order to use them remotely.
