If you have more than one Sricam in your home, using the app you can connect simultaneously to all of them, so you can put one in the living room, one in the kitchen, one in the bedroom and control all just with one app in the same time.

As I mentioned before, it has a Motion Detection function, so when you activate it, if something or someone moves in front of the camera, it starts recording and sends an email to a preset address. You can hide your camera and go out safely, because if someone enters in your home you’ll get an alert, then you can connect to your camera, observe the situation and in case call the police.

    This camera puzzles me. How does the iPhone App talk to the camera to send it your WiFi password? At this point the camera isn’t part of your WiFi network so how do they talk? (Bluetooth?).

    I’m not comfortable with having to sign up for an account (online) before getting access to the camera.

    There are no instructions on how to access Scricam SP009A remotely outside of your WiFi network.

    I have connected the App to the cam after connecting through a VPN and I have connected the cam to my Blue Iris server (on the local network) which in turn is available remotely (after port forwarding or VPN). Non of these options are ‘easy’ routes for the average user.

    I get the impression that the cam is talking to the manufacturers server and you can go through their website to get remote access to the stream. Can the manufacturer get access to the image?

    Get in touch with me if you have any answers.

      Hi there, not sure if you still need an answer but here we go.
      You don’t need instructions to view the Sricam outside your home WiFi network. Perform the setup as described in the Quick User Guide. Make sure your smartphone is on the 2.4 setting of your router if you also have the 5G band. Be as close as possible to the router with both the Sricam and your phone during this setup. Afterwards it’s fine to go back to the 5G band. The Sricam only works on 2.4
      Somehow the Sricam internally deals with the port forwarding since there is no need to make this setting on your router. I can view my cam on my mobile data as well as a different WiFi network.

        Hey Sjaak, thanks for the reply.

        After speaking to the manufacturer I can confirm that they use their own “secret” technology to transmit the WiFi password to the camera so it can then join the network. Clever stuff!

        Also, it wasn’t hole punching for me through my router at first. They confirmed they they are running a “middle-ware” server to allow the camera to talk to and then pass the data back.

        I found you can access other peoples camera just by changing the ID number in the app! So anyone reading this needs to ensure they change the admin password!

        Cheers 🙂

          Hey Richard,

          You also thanks for replying. I have been trying with the supplier’s helpdesk to figure out a few things but I am done with that.

          “Middle-ware” server sounds a bit scary to me since apperently this equipment can bypass my router just like that to communicate with the camera, correct?
          Actually I have tried it immediately with my friend, both being elswhere than on our own respective local NW. I have used his camera ID and default PWD and correct, there is the image. So we both changed our admin PWDs right away. Thanks for the advise, something which the manufacturer should have stressed in the quick user guide.

          So how scary is this middle-ware server?

          Do you happen to know which port is being used for the camera?
          I am still looking for a proper working PC tool to monitor the camera’s while at home, dog sitting for your information. For most of them you need the port.
          I have used Sricam_CMS and Sricam Device Manager but they more often show no camera than providing an image. I have also used ONVIF Device Manager but this seems to initiate some trouble with the motion detector, a constant false alarm.
          http://www.videoipcamera.cn/view/ seems to work fine but this is IE kernel only and 1 camera at the time.

          Cheers
          Sjaak

    I bought siricam mini ip SP 009. I follow instructions, but when i need to connect to wi fi i got error. “network busy”. I tried 100 times. I tried the “QR CODE way” and it doesnt work at all. I checked SSID and WiFi password and it’s correct. The Siri cam is on. I reset it without problems. The mobile phone is an Android and it’s connected to the same wi-fi while I’m doing the connection. I really, don’t know what more to do.

          Hi there, have you read my earlier reply about the router? Using the 2.4 instead of 5G band. If you do not change your device to use 2.4G it won’t work.

    I am clearly tech-challenged and hoping somebody can help me. I bought my ip cam from a friend and I can’t set it up as it keeps saying “original password error”. I’ve reset the camera a few times and this doesn’t fix the problem. The password I’m using is the one on the camera 888888. Hope somebody can help me please
