Pair a WiFi auxiliary camera to your dashcam

Once you've connected the auxiliary camera to a power source, pair it with the vehicle's dashcam. Pairing the auxiliary camera to the dashcam enables the dashcam to pull recordings from the auxiliary camera and upload them to the cloud. Up to four auxiliary cameras can be paired to one dashcam. All the auxiliary cameras connected to one dashcam must be paired the same way. There are two auxiliary camera options, and each type is paired to the dashcam differently:

Tip

If you are installing multiple dashcams, it's easiest to turn on and pair each auxiliary camera one at a time.

Important

Prerequisites:

  • Make sure the auxiliary camera is connected to power.

  • Use any device that connects to WiFi, such as a phone or tablet, to check that the camera can find the available WiFi networks (it appears as AuxCamera_XXXXXX).

When connecting multiple auxiliary cameras, the first one disconnects when another is paired. It will reconnect on its own in about a minute.
