Adding An Amcrest POE Bullet Camera To A Home Security System


The first thing to do with a new security
camera is to get it added to your system. We will be doing that today with an Amcrest
POE bullet camera. Welcome to The Hippie Geeks. If you enjoy this video, be sure to subscribe
and hit the bell notification icon to catch all our new videos! When we first got into home security cameras,
we chose Amcrest because of the excellent reviews, the pricing and the fact that they
have a free app for remote monitoring and free recording software for a computer. Whenever you get a new camera, or reset an
existing one, you will need to get them added to the app so that you can view them remotely,
which is what we will be showing in this video. Before we get started, make sure that your
camera is plugged into your network and powered up. Also make sure that your phone is connected
to the same network via WIFi. If you are adding an existing camera and you
cannot remember the password, check out our video on resetting a POE bullet camera, I
will link it up in the corner and in the video description below. The WiFi connection is only necessary for
the initial set up, after that you can connect to the camera from anywhere with an internet
connection. zOnce you have that taken care of, head to
the App or Play Store depending on your phone and download the Amcrest View Pro App. It is only about 23 Megabytes and shouldn�t
take too long to download and install. Once it is installed open it up, accept the
permissions it is requesting and click on Start when the Welcome To Amcrest View window
pops up. Pick on POE Camera, then P2P Setup and accept
the permission so that the App can use your camera. Grab the QR code on the body of the camera
and the app will pull up the seral number. Give the camera a name and leave the login
and password as admin as those are the defaults for all new cameras. Hit Start Live View, and it will bring up
a place for you to change the password on the camera, which you definitely want to do. After that it brings up the cameras picture,
and the camera is successfully set up for remote viewing. You can double check it by going into your
phones settings and turning off WiFi, then open the App up and connect to the camera
you just added thru your cellular connection. It should bring up the picture, although it
will have a slight delay. Now that the camera is set up and connected,
you are going to want to set it up to record the footage, and you can see our video on
that by clicking on the link up in the corner, or in the video description down below. If this is your first time here on The Hippie
