Changing my outdoor battery

Before I change my batterie in my outdoor camera do I have to do anything like shut the camera off? I don't want to have to go through all the camera setups every time I change the battery.

Hi richardgaspa,

Nope, just take the camera down, open it up, and either take out the battery or charge, or swap out with a charged one. The camera should power on again and reconnect on its own.

I changed the battery and the camera started operating right away. However, it now sends motion warnings every 5-10 minutes. Why?

Hi @jrcbrit​, 

Are these notifications alerting you that your Outdoor Camera is detecting motion? You can adjust the motion sensitivity of your camera to receive fewer notifications. We detail how to do this over in our Help Center.
