Connect to the Mevo Cameras in Hotspot / 4G-LTE Mode

If you do not have a local Wi-Fi network, you can connect your Mevo camera to the Mevo app through the camera's Hotspot mode, then stream over your mobile device's 4G-LTE connection.

Mobile Data Usage!

Livestreaming can use a lot of data, so be careful if you have a limited data plan or you could be charged overages.

The Mevo Start and earlier generations have different form factors and LEDs but they are similar. You can click your model below to see what your camera LED should look like when attempting to use the Hotspot Mode. If your lights do not match the examples then the camera is likely not yet in Mevo Hotspot mode.
