I really didn’t expect much from it. But, let me tell you, the picture quality was far better than my Xfinity cameras all over my house.

How to Install Light Bulb Camera?

How to Install Light Bulb Camera?

1. Before plug in your bulb camera.

Things to prepare:

  • Bulb camera.
  • WiFi router.
  • Bulb base near WiFi.
  • Smart APP (Most of our cameras work with the Tuya APP, some don’t. The following steps are mainly based on the Tuya APP.)

2. Time to plug in your bulb camera.

Start by finding an available light bulb base near your WiFi router.

First and foremost, turn off the power.

There are 2 cases. First, if you want to take the light bulb off and put the camera back on, make sure the light bulb cools down before removing it. Second, use the provided bulb base and install it directly after turning off the power.

Screw in your bulb camera before powering on.

3. Setup your bulb camera.

    Can most lightsocket cameras use the TUYA APP HOW DOES ONE KNOW . I THREE CAMERAS all have different apps I would like to think most cameras could be accessed by TUYA is this not true?

    1. It depends on whether TUYA has cooperated with your three cameras. This may require you to ask the customer service of the place where you bought the camera.

  2. Alamar DUNCAN

    I have tried the instruction several times and does not connect with my phone.

    1. This article is the instruction manual for the JFCAM camera. If you bought it from another store, it is best to ask their customer service directly. Hope you can solve your problem soon!

    Aw, this was a very good post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce a top notch article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.

    May I simply say what a relief to uncover somebody that actually understands what they are talking about online. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people should check this out and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular since you surely possess the gift.

    1. We really appreciate that! Thank you SO MUCH!🤗
