Set up the Cam

Ready to be the best guardian for your dog? Set up the camera with the SmartThings app.

On your phone, open the SmartThings app. Tap Add (the plus sign), and then tap Add device. Under Brands, tap SmartThings, and then tap Camera. Tap Start, and then follow the on-screen prompts. Select your desired Location or create a new one. Next, select a Room or create a new one. Using your phone, scan the QR code as prompted. Or, tap Enter serial number instead, and then tap Done.

Add additional cameras

Even with the Cam’s 145 degree wide-angle view, recording every single thing can be difficult. By adding additional cameras, you can keep an eye on more. However, the number of cameras that can be used depends on your subscription plan.

  • Basic Plan: With this plan, you can add up to 2 cameras for recording, plus additional cameras for live streaming only.

  • Premium Plan: If you have Premium, you can add up to 5 cameras for recording and additional cameras for live streaming only.
