I recently purchased a Smartcam since there have been a steep rise in stolen packages in my neighborhood - including someone stealing an empty box because I had not broken it down for recycling but wanted it out of the house (back on the porch). While I am amused they stole an empty box, this makes me concerned about the safety/privacy of my home in general. ANYWAYS… on to the problem.
I followed the instructions out of the box, downloaded the app from google play, went through the setup procedures, was told the camera needed a firmware update (it installed fine), setup various passwords/settings and can view it from the web in IE (UGH) and on my phone - so far so good.
Then, because it was listed as supported (with caveats about motion notifications, etc) I wanted to get it added to my V2 SmartThings hub. I follow the instructions again in both the packaged documentation and the Android Smartthings app UI for my specific device, and then it sits there spinning on detection.
Forever. It never actually gets detected. How can I nudge it into action and get my SmartThings system to find it?
