If you do not have a local WiFi network, you can connect your Mevo camera to the Mevo app through the camera's Hotspot mode.
Note: Any streaming that you do while in the Mevo camera's Hotspot mode will use your phone's 4G-LTE data. Live streaming can use a lot of data, so be careful if you have a limited data plan, or can be charged overages. For more information on streaming without using your phone's data, please read our article on connecting your Mevo to your local WiFi network.
After powering on the Mevo, you should notice above the WiFi indicator on the back of the camera that the LED ring light is pulsing blue. This means that the Mevo WiFi hotspot is ready to connect.
When you open the app, you will see a connection card directing you to either Configure iPhone or Configure Mevo. To continue with the Mevo's hotspot, select 'Configure iPhone.'
Tap the blue 'Configure iPhone' button and enter the iPhone WiFi menu.
Your iPhone should search for nearby networks. After a moment, you should see a network named 'Mevo-#####.' Tap it to connect your device to your Mevo.
Note: The 'No Internet Connection' message is normal because the Mevo hotspot does not actually produce an internet connection. This message is an iOS 10 update addition.
Once you are connected to the Mevo's WiFi hotspot, tap on the 'Back to Mevo' prompt at the top-left of your WiFi menu.
This will bring you back to the Mevo connection card in your Mevo app. The app will take a moment to update the connection status.
Note: There may be a short delay for your app to update when changing your Mevo connection settings. Please be patient for a short moment after making changes to your Mevo connectivity.
You will then see the card update with a blue 'Connect' button.
Once you tap 'Connect' on your app, the blue light will spin around the top of the camera, then turn solid blue at the front.
The connection card will fly away to reveal your Mevo camera's image. You are now ready to begin streaming, recording, and live editing.
