On the front, you’ll find the lens and LED status indicator. The LED is a simple visual indication of how or what your Mevo is doing:
Next, you’ll want to get connected to the Mevo Camera App. With a smartphone or tablet, download it from the associated App Store:
- Mevo Camera App for iOS and iPad OS on the Apple App Store
- Mevo Camera App for Android on the Google Play Store
If you’re not sure if your device will work with the Mevo Camera App, check our list of supported devices here.
Mevo has three ways of connecting to the Internet - via a local WiFi network, over a 4G LTE cellular data connection, or via Ethernet and an existing wired network. To learn about each option, read our article on The Different Ways Mevo Connects to the Internet.
3. Basic Gestures and Using Camera Assistant
Once you’re connected and in the camera view, there are three main gestures to control what the camera sees and add dynamic edits to your live stream.
Tapping on a part of the image cuts to a zoomed-in view.
Swiping around the image will move that view throughout the senes
Pinching in and out controls a zoom
You can also create a collection of Static Shots, allowing you to cut to an array of saved scenes. Read more about how to set a Static Shots here.
If you want to automate your live stream even more, the Camera Assistant tool helps you find subjects and automatically switch between live scenes to create a more dynamic-looking stream. Learn more about how you can Find Faces, Live Follow, and enable Autopilot by clicking here.
