2. If you see “Invalid ID” as the status on the mobile device, remove the camera from the list of cameras in the app and repeat steps “6 to 8”.
There have been occasions when the camera and mobile device have required several attempts at connecting and this is a result of back-end security authentication done by the camera in ascertaining the integrity of the viewing device.
