zmodo HD WIFi Indoor/ Outdoor Camera Kit User Guide

This quick start guide will help you configure your WiFi camera kit for initial use. Before performing any permanent installation, we recommend that you complete the mobile setup in Section 1 to connect your cameras and make sure that nothing was damaged during shipping.

Before you begin:

  • Plug in and power on all cameras near your router for initial setup. Fasten the antennas (if applicable) onto the cameras.
  • Make sure that you have a strong WiFi connection at the location of your cameras.
  • Make sure you know the SSID (WiFi network name) and password of the 2.4GHz WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK WiFi network that you want your cameras to connect to. Your
    network cannot be hidden.
  • Make sure your network has at least 1Mbps upload speed for each camera when live viewing or 2Mbps upload speed for each camera when using the cloud service.
  • Download and install the “Zmodo” app from Google Play or the App StoreTM (compatibility: iOS 9.0+ or Android TM 4.0+). Launch the app and sign up for a free Zmodo
    account. All of your devices will be bound to this account.

We are constantly working to improve our product and app. Please visit
www.zmodo.com/support for updated instructions, manuals, and more.

  1. Log in and press the Add Device option in the upper right corner of the Home Page.
  2. Select the “QR Code” connection method to connect your device(s). Your device(s) will be added to your Zmodo account.

  8. Name your device(s) and set a password for it. Tap “Next” to proceed.

    Note:  The password provides an additional layer of security for your devices. You will not need to use this password when accessing your devices from
    the Zmodo app. It is not required, but it is highly recommended.
  9. Your device(s) have been successfully configured! Tap “Done” to finish. You can now share or view your device(s).

Installation Requirements & Tips:

  • If you’re installing your cameras outdoors, all wired connections must be weatherproofed.
  • Before installing the cameras, carefully plan where and how they will be positioned, and how you will route the wiring that connects your cameras to the power adapters.
  • Try to avoid WiFi signal interference from concrete, cement, and metal as much as possible. Do not place cameras in a location where these materials stand
    between your cameras and your WiFi router.
  • Make sure that your cameras are within range of your WiFi network, and that your network meets all of the bandwidth requirements from Section 1.
  • If you have a lot of obstacles between your camera and the WiFi router, the transmission range will be greatly reduced. In order to increase the range, you may purchase a WiFi range extender to place near the cameras.
  1. Unplug the cameras that have been configured in Section 1.
  2. Line the camera bracket against the wall where you would like to install the cameras, and mark the appropriate holes. Drill three holes slightly smaller than the wall anchors and use a hammer to gently insert the anchors into the wall. Fasten the three screws through the holes on the bracket and into the anchors as shown.
    Note: Depending on the camera model that you purchased, the camera bracket may or may not be fastened onto the camera when first removed from factory packaging.

  3. Fasten the bracket to the camera. You will be able to adjust the camera position using the adjustable camera bracket. Position the camera for an optimal viewing angle, and tighten the bracket.

  4. Connect the supplied power adapter to the power port on the camera, and plug the adapter into a nearby power outlet. Repeat steps 1-4 for all cameras in your
    camera kit.
