Connect Your Recorder to a Mobile Device | Guide
Okay, let’s get started. For the following example, we will enable P2P from the local interface. Start by right-clicking the page and selecting Main Menu. While in the Main Menu, select Network at the bottom, under the Settings menu on the bottom row.
Once in Network Settings, we want to make sure we are in the correct range. In order to do this, select the DHCP option next to the Mode choices. Make sure to do this if STATIC is currently selected. Okay, now select DHCP. This will automatically assign an IP address to your network. Now, if you already know the range of your network you can assign a Static IP, as well.
Okay, so let’s go back to Network Settings. This is where you can see that it pulls your IP address.
Once you see that your IP address is locked in, you can go on down to the P2P option on the side menu, at the bottom-right. If it does not say P2P, it might say Easy For IP. While in here, select Enable by check the box at the top. Once you have enabled it, press Apply at the bottom-right hand corner. Now, remain on this page while we move to your phone.
The next step has to do with your connected mobile device. So, go ahead and take that out. Once you have pulled up the TechPro SS App on your mobile phone, you can continue. Go ahead and select Camera at the top of your device. Then, select the Menu Icon on the upper-left hand corner. Next, select Device Manager. At this point you should see a screen that reads “Before adding device, please make sure your device is initialized, otherwise you cannot use it.”
If you see that, then we can continue. Here we are going to add your device. Select Wired Device. Next, select P2P. Now we are going to give your device a name. This is also the place you can either manually enter the device serial number or select the icon to the right of the SN option. If you choose to do this, your camera should pop up and you can scan the QR code on that page.
Finally, it will ask you for a username and password. Enter those, go to the bottom and select Start Live Preview. That’s it!
