FDT View Cameras not working or Recording videos

The main reason obviously behind installing an IP camera is to capture footage.

And once you configured the camera successfully, it will start recording without any issues.

The camera that is working can be seen in the app, and the app will show the status Online just below the gear icon.

If the camera is not showing online, that means that there is some issue with the connection or the camera itself.

In any case, if the issue is not with the mobile app but with the Camera itself, you can consult its user manual.

Also, make sure that there is nothing that you have missed or overlooked while installing cameras.

If the problem still persists, you can contact FDT customer care regarding the app not functioning issue.
