Modified on: Mon, 8 Aug, 2016 at 9:37 AM
If you want to update your
router you may need to adjust your network settings to make sure your Base
Station is able to switch from your old router to the new one. Here are some instructions
on how to do this:
First you'll need to decide if
you want to hook up the new router via a connection to your existing router or
if you want simply replace your old router.
the old router
This will involve copying all
the settings from your old router to the new one. Refer to this link for more
After adjusting the settings,
you can connect your Base Station to the new router (it can take a few minutes
for cameras to re-connect to your Base Station).
your new router to your old router
If you just want to have a
separate network for your CleverLoop system you can connect your new router to
the old one. Please use a different SSID
for each router, otherwise your cameras will be unable to tell which router they
need to connect to.
Please follow the instructions
1. Keep your old router as it
is. Use an Ethernet cable to connect the new router to the old router.
2. Keep your Base Station and
cameras hooked up to the old router and make sure you can access your cameras
using the CleverLoop app.
3. Set an SSID for your new
router. It should be different from your old one.
4. Use the CleverLoop App to
change your camera’s WiFi information to the new SSID (new router).
5. Disconnect your Base Station from your old router and connect it to your new
one. (Your Base Station and your camera(s) should be connected to the new router).
6. Wait for a few minutes - the cameras
should go online automatically.
