Hi DavidY123 -
I'm sorry to hear that you are having camera trouble! You should have very minimal delay on your camera feed and notifications should be very fast. While it's possible your camera is faulty, it's far more likely that it is experiencing poor WiFi connectivity - or the Touchscreen has a poor WiFi connection and is experiencing latency.
Oure newest xCam2's broadcast their WiFi signal from the power adapter - is it possible to plug the power adapter into another outlet or in another orientation that may move it out into the open more? I have seen power adapters plugged in behind furniture or fish tanks, and this is a recipe for poor connection.
Also, make sure your Gateway and Touchscreen stay stationary and out in the open - this all helps to ensure your connection remains strong.
In large installations, xFi Pods can help - our xCam2 Cameras work well with xFi Pods and connectivity can be imporoved in many situations.
Either way - if can't hurt to have one of our technicians come out to take a look if basic troubleshooting doesn't help. There are diagnosics that can be run on camera connectivity, and we should be able to improve your experience.
Hmm... do you still have issues if you disconnect from your in-home WiFi on your phone and use the LTE connection (if you have a plan with Data)? If you have other devices, are the similarly affected?
Do you have other devices that experience the same issue?
I meant, do you have any other devices you can try that experience issues accessing your cameras?
Got it! So it sounds like the camera is connected well to the touchscreen, but that we may have issues with the video being uploaded and/or downloaded from the cloud. My best advice would be to give us a call - if that issue cannot be diagnosed over the phone, we can have a technician looks to see where that communication issue might be.
