Unable to Connect Mobile Device to Mevo Hotspot

If you are unable to connect via the Mevo's own hotspot, please try the following.

  • Move closer to the camera. The Mevo Wi-Fi hotspot can range up to 30 meters. However, bear in mind there could be wireless interference if you're in an area with multiple wireless devices (e.g. an office, concert venue, convention center) so it's best to be as close to the camera as possible.
  • Make sure your iPhone's hotspot is disabled. If you are creating a hotspot with your iPhone, you will not be able to connect to the Mevo's own hotspot. This does not impact Android.
  • Hang up! If you are on a call using the same iPhone you are trying to use with Mevo, the app will not be able to connect to the camera. This does not impact Android.
  • Turn Airplane Mode on, then off again. This will reset your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth signals simultaneously. 
  • Try connecting via a local Wi-Fi network. This will at least get you connected and also tells us if the device is able to connect in general.
  • Try another mobile device. Sometimes differentiations between device settings or carriers can resolve this issue. 
  • When in doubt, reboot. Hold the button on the top of the camera down for 30 seconds, then press it again to turn the camera back on. This will perform a hard reboot of the camera.
  • Change the hotspot to a different Wi-Fi channel. Open your network menu, tap "Disconnect to change Mevo's Wi-Fi network." 

Tap "Configure Mevo."

Tap the "i" information bubble next to Mevo Hotspot.

Tap "Channel."

Set the Hotspot WiFi channel to one that is free from local interference. You can test WiFi channels in your local area by scanning your area for the best local WiFi channels via Windows or Mac laptops.
