Mevo Start: Connecting to a Local Wi-Fi Network or Router

When you first power on your Mevo camera and open the Mevo app, by default the unit will prompt you to connect to Hotspot mode. If you prefer to connect to your local Wi-Fi network, follow the steps below.

First, make sure both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on your mobile device are enabled.

Tap the network you want to connect to. 

5GHz networks are more reliable for connecting and streaming and are recommended in favor of 2.4GHz networks.

Enter the network's password (if necessary). 

The Mevo camera is compatible with networks whose passwords are a maximum of 63 characters long; networks with longer passwords will not connect.

After a moment, you will be connected to your network. This will also be indicated by the green front LED light (green ring for Mevo Plus camera). 

Tap Done, and the app will update its status again for a moment.

It soon will then give you the option to connect to your camera. Tap Connect.
