Introduction

Amcrest Video Doorbell is a device that will be set up to communicate via the Devicebook Hub's secure Wi-Fi LAN. However, Devicebook cannot automatically configure the device to communicate with your Hub's Wi-Fi LAN. Instead, you should follow the manufacturer's instructions to use the Manufacturer's app to set up the device.

Setting Up the Device in House Check

1. Before starting House Check, get the Amcrest Smart Home App for iOS or Android (iOS strongly recommended).

2. Create an account or sign in to the Amcrest Smart Home App (the account used does not matter).

3. Follow the instructions to set up a device in the Amcrest Smart Home App.

4. The app may ask you to scan a QR code on the device.

- iOS: Scan the QR Code on the device. You may need to use a screwdriver to gently remove the faceplate of the Amcrest Video Doorbell to access the QR Code.

- Android: Do not Scan the QR Code. Instead, manually enter the serial number of the device, which can be found next to the QR Code on the device. You may need to use a screwdriver to gently remove the faceplate of the Amcrest Video Doorbell to access the serial number.

5. Follow the instructions to put the device into Wi-Fi Access Point Mode.

6. Follow the instructions to connect the device to the Devicebook Hub's Wi-Fi LAN. You can find the SSID and password for this network in House Check in the Home Controller, in the Hub's detail page. These values are listed in the "Wi-Fi Information" section of the Hub's detail page.

7. Once the device has successfully connected to the Devicebook Hub's Wi-Fi network, tap the "Set Up" button for the device in House Check, and follow the steps to finish setting up the device.
