Error: "Unable to connect to device ..."

AiCam show an error message "Unable to connect to device ..." or you cannot view the camera live feed

Check the setting:

First, make sure that:

  1. You have the same setting for "Local Network Mode" on both streaming and viewing devices (AiCam app > Settings > Camera). If you want to view the live feed over 4G/LTE or internet, ensure that you have "Local Network Mode" turned OFF.
  2. Access to Local Network is allowed for AiCam (Settings app > Privacy > Local Network)

Then force quit the app on both devices and retry again.

Check the network:

AiCam uses a direct peer-to-peer connection for video streaming to ensure data privacy. The limitation is that it may not work, if your device is behind a firewall or connected to a limited network, like a corporate network. Some cellular network provider may limit P2P connection. In this case, please retry with another network provider.

You can check your network connection by opening this URL on your device:

https://networktest.twilio.com/

Note: We do not use Twilio, but their network testing website is helpful to see if the current network connection is limited since we use the same WebRTC technology.
