Lets now jump into setting the device up. It is simple enough but you need to know how to go about it. Below are the labelled device components:
When you turn on the CloudCam for the first time it will start in hotspot (access point) mode. In Hotspot mode you will see that the Hotspot Indicator led is on (4 in Figure 1. below). It could be either BLUE or RED in color. In case this Hotspot LED is not ON, you need to get the device into hotspot mode before you can start setting up your device. Ensure that your device is ON and status LEDS are OFF or constantly in the RED. This will happen if the device was in use with some other account and is either connected (status lights OFF) or looking for network (status light RED). Double click the reset button ( 7 in Figure 1). After about 40 seconds the hotspot LED will turn ON. Your device is now in Hotspot mode.
The hotspot is visible from any wifi enabled device like a smart phone or a laptop. The access point is advertised as a Hotspot by the name that starts with ‘CCam-‘ and is followed by a number(Figure 2). This number is your unique device identifier, also printed at the back of your device. You can connect to it from any wifi capable device like a smartphone or laptop.

The popup browser page will give you access to video, alerts, various configuration, and wifi setup wizard. This is the insecure Hotspot and you do not need to provide any password in order to connect to it. In case the CloudCam does not start in hotspot mode like if someone has tried unsuccessfully to configure it, you can get it into hotspot mode by giving two clicks to the reset button (7) as explained above.
In case the configuration page does not pop up automatically then you need to manually goto this page by going to following url http://192.168.97.1
Once you are connected to the hotspot you will see the device screen that is popped open on your mobile (Android or iOS) phone automatically. It should look like Figure 3.

Navigate to Wifi Setup from the top menu or by clicking on the wifi setup button. To be able to access your account online you will be setting up the device to connect to your home wifi. This is the home wifi network that you use to connect your laptop and smartphones too. You need to have the following information handy in order to complete the setup.
- Wifi credentials: This includes the wifi network name, also called SSID and password. This is the information that you usually give to your mobile phone in order for it to connect to the home wifi.
- Account credentials: These are your account username and password that you have registered at https://app.ibeyonde.com. The username and password are case sensitive.
- Ip Information: Most of the user need not worry about this. They can select the Auto option, ips are assigned in the background as they are assigned to your mobile phone. For advanced users who familiar with their wifi setup, they can provide the static IP, gateway, and netmask.
