How to set up a Hive View Camera

To set up a Hive View camera, follow the below steps:
  1. Select “Camera” or "View" from the install devices screen in the Hive app and follow the onscreen instructions.

  3. If it is not flashing blue, press and hold the power button on the underside of the camera cube for c.10 seconds until the ring light does start flashing blue.
  4. You will need the bluetooth on your phone to be on during install. Bluetooth is required for setup only. Once the camera is installed the camera uses Wi-Fi.

  • To power on, press the power button for 1-2 seconds or reattach the camera cube to the stand when the stand has mains power, then start the installation journey again.
