Pairing Guide

  1. Remove the camera, power transformer, and ethernet cable from the box.

  2. Plug one end of the ethernet cable into a spare port on your router, and the other end into the back of the camera. The ethernet cable is used to register your camera - add it to the hub and set it up to communicate with your wireless Wi-Fi router.

  3. Insert the power transformer connector into the back of the camera and plug the transformer into an AC outlet.

  4. Next, you will use your Abode App to pair the streaming camera with the hub. Tap Menu (≡) > "Add Device" > "Security Cameras" > "720P Streaming Camera" and follow the setup steps to pair the camera to your system. Once this is completed you will be able to stream live video from the app.
