The most often faced problem is that my Adorcam is not online, and if you have also been struggling and cannot access your Adorcam here some solutions.

Router Wi-Fi mode:

Most of the routers have dual-frequency Wi-Fi and support the frequency of 2.4GHz or 5GHz simultaneously. Wi-Fi commonly has two modes given below:

1.    Combination mode:

If router has only one Wi-Fi that supports the frequency of 2.4G and 5G at the same time, then your devices will automatically connect to the working frequency.

If you have connected the camera by QR code or AP hotspot then you can directly add camera without distinguishing that either the Wi-Fi frequency is 2.4g or 5G.

2.    Separation mode

If router has two Wi-Fi, they will have different names. First, Open Wi-Fi menu on your phone or PC to check the Wi-Fi name. For example, “my Wi-Fi” or “my Wi-Fi 5G”, “my Wi-Fi 2.4G” or “my Wi-Fi”, etc.

Select the Wi-Fi name with 2.4GHz included or excluded. If the name of your Wi-Fi does not have 2.4 or 5G, you can check your Wi-Fi frequency by following methods:

Check if Wi-Fi frequency is 2.4G or 5G

My Adorcam is not detecting motion:

In some cases, your Adorcam fails to record the motion triggered events and is unable to distinguish motion detection, if you are also facing this problem you might be facing the following possibilities,

  1. Motion Detection may have been turned off

    A. if you are using premium version Motion Detection is turned on/off automatically if you set up a schedule.
    B. If your Adorcam is on Continuous Recording mode make sure to turn on Motion Detection for camera to record.

  2. If motion happens to be outside the Detection Zone or zoomed-in area

    A. Make sure the object or area that you are recording is in the center of your camera frame.
    B.  Continuous Recording is recommended to avoid missing main events in the last 8 hours.

  3. Motion isn’t strong enough to trigger the recording

Sometimes, an event looks like a series of images under the camera’s eyes and camera cannot determines motion by comparing  these images. If the camera doesn’t record the whole event, it indicates the motion isn’t strong enough for your camera to think of it as a motion.
To make sure the detection of most of the motion taking place

  • Set your device within 15 meters of interested objects (with high sensitivity)
  • Place adequate amount of light in the monitoring area.
  • Record side-to-side movements(lateral) instead of far-to-near movements (depth)
  • Avoid filming through window screens and panes
  • Keep your camera lens clean.

    If the Internet connection is turned off before uploading the video, so the upload will fail.

Why Adorcam Error Code 05 is coming and how to fix it?

In my experience, the error code 5 with Adorcam cameras often pops up when the camera Wi-Fi signal is weak. It’s like the camera is having trouble talking to your internet because the connection isn’t strong enough.

So What to do to fix it?

Immediatelydo this:

  • Move your Wi-Fi router a bit closer to the camera. Even a few feet can make a big difference.
  • Once it’s closer, open the Adorcam app and check the signal strength for your camera. There should be a section in the app that shows this.
  • If the signal is strong now, This might have solved the error code 5 you were seeing.

error code 05

I am pretty sure it will solve the issue.

Other general Steps if it remains unsolved:

  • Enable App Permissions: Go to smartphone settings and look for the Adorcam app. Then, make sure that you enable the required permissions, especially for the phone data bit if you’re not using the Wi-Fi (JustAnswer).
