    SEE DETAILS ON THE LATEST UPDATE HERE:

    UPDATE 1 - TIME STAMP FIXED

    Some units were experiencing improper time stamps on your video. With this update, once you set the time by simply connecting to the mobile app,  the video timestamps will now stay correct after turning the camera off.

    UPDATE 2 - SAVE PRE-CONFIGURED SETTINGS
    With this update, you can pre-set the following settings from the mobile app, and when you turn the camera off and back on, it will automatically record using these settings (even if you don't use the app): Resolution setting, White balance setting, Logo/watermark setting, Upside down (video orientation) setting, Clip-time setting

    UPDATE 3 - FROZEN CAMERA ISSUE RESOLVED

    There was a couple bugs that froze some cameras and required a manual reset to turn the unit off. With this update, we have removed the bugs we found that caused the need for a manual reset.  Please note, with this new update, when connected to the mobile app, the red record button on the camera is disabled, so when connected to the app, use the app controls, and not the red button on the camera to start/stop recording, and for record mode changing.

    UPDATE 4 - NEW FEATURE! CLIP TIME CHANGING

    Normally, your camera records in 1 minute increments. With this update, in the camera settings on the mobile app, a new setting called ‘Video Clip Length’ was added to allow the user to change the record length of clips.

    There are now 5 options: 1 minute, 3 minute, 5 minute, 10 minute and continuous (long clips depending on the micro sd card, usually 25 minutes or longer, and it will end when the battery dies or when your memory card is full)

    NOTE: There is a mobile app update that is also needed for this update. Please make sure you have at least iOS version 1.29 or android version 1.30 from the app stores.
