MobiCams are intended for live viewing purposes only, as the device is built as a surveillance camera. (Unsure what this means? Read this article here for MobiCam's intended use: What is the difference between a surveillance camera and a security camera?)
MobiCams will save in one of three locations, depending on device: the SD card, locally on the user's phone, or through an offered Cloud Storage service.
Saving to an SD Card
All MobiCams have the ability to save to an inserted SD card. As soon as the SD card is inserted and the camera is paired to a network, it will automatically begin recording to the card. The length of available viewable recordings depends on the size of the inserted SD Card.
To view previously automatically recorded footage, please open the appropriate MOBI App, open the camera, and view playback. The MobiCam will not automatically record to a phone or source other than the SD card.
Because of security and safety concerns, footage saved to the SD card cannot be played without the use of the MobiCam while connected to an account, being viewed through the appropriate MOBI App.
Saving to a Phone / Tablet Gallery
All MobiCams have the ability to record to the user's device at the same time as the SD card- however, this is a manual process. To record to a device's gallery / video location;
- Open the appropriate MOBI app
- Connect the MobiCam to an account
- Navigate to viewing the live feed from the camera
- Tap the record button.
The recording will last until the record button is tapped again, or until the device runs out of potential storage for the video. The video will be stored where any other camera based video is saved on the device.
iOS: The snapshots and videos saved will be available in the Photo Album inside the app. From there, tap the desired image or video, then tap the bottom left icon to save the media to Camera Roll / Photo App or shared through desired external app.
Android: The snapshots and videos saved will be available in the Gallery app on the device. Images and videos are directly shareable as above, or by navigating to /Internal Storage/Camera/-image name- to share the image directly outside of the MOBI app.
Saving to the Cloud
Please be aware that this option is only available to the MobiCam HDX V2 (70196-SK) as an additional subscription.
In the MOBI Smart app, navigate to the Me icon at the bottom, then select More Services, then Cloud Storage for Cameras. The camera will upload the encrypted video data to the cloud once the service is established. You can then check the previous video via the app. (This service will not backdate, and the uploads will only begin after the subscription is started.)
Note: This subscription is per camera.
