Purpose Of The Guide
By the end of this guide you will have downloaded the software, set the device up,, be able to see the camera via your phone app and configured some basic settings.
Before You Begin
You'll need the camera, a phone or tablet to download the app onto, and an available WiFi router or mobile hot spot to connect the camera to.
It is best to disable mobile data when connecting the camera to the WiFi as this can interfere with the connection process. If your device is set to automatically connect to the strongest nearby WiFi network, it is best to disable this temporarily as it can also interfere with the connection process.
Let's Get Started
Downloading the Software
The application for connecting to the camera is called Attez 2.0, which can be found below.
Download the app before continuing.
Connecting the Camera
Ensure that an SD card is inserted into the camera.
- For SD cards that are 64GB and above, some software is required to format the SD card correctly.
Power the camera on and connect to the Wi-Fi of the camera locally. Go to your phone settings > Wi-Fi and find the camera named Attezcam_xxxxx.
While you are connected locally to the camera’s Wi-Fi, open the Attez application, and then select “Add new cam” at the bottom of the screen.
The camera can now be named how you like. We have named it “MyNewCam”. Then Click ok
Once this is done, you will see Quad View/Live View/Download and there is your camera underneath, there should be an online button and a Cog Wheel, if you click on the Cog Wheel then select connection settings, then you will see it says "click to select router" tap on that and you should see a load of WiFi devices available, please select your WiFi router SSID, then input the WiFi password underneath. Once this is done, you will just wait for the camera to restart and to come back online and the camera will be connected to router and it will work.
Changing Recording Settings
Select the settings icon for the camera you have added. Press on the recording settings for this camera.
A schedule can be set for the camera. A start and end time can be set, and the on/off button highlighted to enable a set of schedules. If the times are left at 00:00 and 24:00, the device will record continuously.
The system can be set to record continuously, record on voice trigger, or on motion trigger.
Always record is the constant recording, and will always record in the time frame specified above.
Voice trigger will start recording to the SD card once the microphone detects audio.
Motion trigger starts recording once there is a change of scenery, when objects move across the frame or when lighting changes in the image.
