Hi all,

 

I’m after some help/advice if possible please?

 

I’ve been really impressed with my KC120 and I’m using it as a baby monitor through the night. 

 

Unfortunately a message keeps popping up asking if I’d like to keep streaming in which you have to select “Yes” otherwise Kasa comes completely out of the camera view. I think this must be every 10-20 minutes roughly. 

 

Ideally I’d like to keep the streaming constant (on an iPad) through the night so I can have a look what baby is up to whenever I wake up or if I hear him making a noise. Any suggestions?

 

I don’t have any activity zones setup and have it set to don’t record any video or audio as I’m purely interested in live streaming. 

 

I’ve also received the spinning wheel/network connection error a couple of times (first night using it last night) - is this a common thing? The firmware version is 2.2.14 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated! 

 

Thanks in advance

Graham

Not really fit for purpose as a baby monitor as advertised then is it?

@GrahamA After about 10 minutes the camera will prompt you to confirm if you still want to stream the video, this is by design. There currently is not a way to maintain a 24/7 stream, as the only avenues are currently manual record, motion record, and recording hearing sound.

While the current limitations with constant streaming on the KasaCam do not make it ideal for a "always streaming" baby monitor, its abilty to setup up activity zones and detect motion and sound can help parents have peice of mind that they will be alerted when the baby make a sound or shifts postions.
