Using the Indoor, Outdoor and Pan and Tilt Cameras

Once you set up and activate your Indoor, Outdoor, and/or Pan and Tilt cameras from the Home Monitoring and Control Web site on My Verizon, you can monitor live video feed from the Home Monitoring and Control Web site, Home Control mobile app and FiOS TV.

From my... Action

Computer

From the Home Monitoring and Control Web site on My Verizon, click the side arrows to scroll through your activated cameras. Click the camera thumbnail to activate live video feed from the camera. 

 

Note: To activate live-streaming, select Live Streaming from the Quality drop-down field under the camera. Snapshot is the default selection and provides slower, still-frame movement.

Smartphone (compatible)

From the Home Control mobile app: Tap the camera name from the camera list. Under Live Streaming, tap On to activate live-streaming from your cameras. Select Off to view the camera video in "snapshot" mode from your activated cameras.

 

Note: Camera live streaming feature is compatible with Apple devices (iphone, iPad, iPod Touch) using iOS4 version and older. Apple devices using iOS5 will only see camera snapshot feature and will not be able to stream live video. Apple iOS5 support is coming soon.

 

FiOS TV app

 

Use the up and down arrow keys on the FiOS TV Remote Control to select the camera name from the camera list. Live video feed for the camera opens.  

 

 

 
Set up Camera Recordings 

 
Before your camera will record activity in your home, you must create a mode from the Home Monitoring and Control Web site that will tell the camera when to record motion in your room. When you set up your mode, you'll program the camera to begin recording when activity is detected in your room.
 
Important: If you don’t create a camera mode, you can still view live-streaming video from the Home Monitoring Web site, FiOS TV or smartphone, but it won’t record motion unless you create a mode that triggers the camera to record.

Camera Recording Storage
When you purchase a camera you can use up to 2GB of video storage space accessible from the Home Monitoring and Control Web site on My Verizon and the mobile app. 

  • Camera Recordings are accessed from the Home Monitoring and Control Web site, mobile app.
  • Review the Storage percentage bar to review how much recording storage space you've used.
  • To save recordings, select Save. If you reach capacity, the oldest recording not selected as "Save" is deleted from your recording list.
