Once you’ve entered the Cloud ID you’ll be taken to the installation screen, tap ‘Start Scan’ and the Videoloft app will then discover all cameras and recorders connected to the same network as the Cloud Adapter. Simply select the cameras or recorders you want to connect to the cloud, enter their usernames and passwords and install!


You’re all set up! So, what can you do with your Videoloft mobile app?


We have made the app incredibly easy for you to use its wide range of features.

You can view your cameras’ live stream to watch all your cameras online.

You can also view recorded video events, which are safely stored in the Videoloft cloud for the duration of your cloud recording plan.

You can set up email alerts and push notifications for when motion’s detected, and schedule when you want these to be sent to you. The emails contain an image and the date/time stamp.

This alert feature can also be used to notify you when your cameras are down or back online.

You can search footage by date or time, or even by searching for specific objects detected, like people or cars. Once you’ve found what you’re looking for, it’s easy to playback, download and share images and videos by email or by WhatsApp.

The videos are recorded in .mp4, and you can play them on any computer or smartphone using traditional software or apps.

You can control various camera settings by tapping on the settings cog in the top right-hand corner of the app – change the recording resolution, turn on sound (and two-way audio if the camera supports these features) and use PTZ controls (pan, tilt and zoom – adjusting the field of view) for those types of cameras.

You can adjust the sensitivity of the motion detection and set detection zones, just by drawing over the screen with your finger.

There is also an option in the app for you to enable or disable video analytics, which describe what is showing in the image and recognising text showing in the image.


To sum up…


The Videoloft mobile app for security cameras is the ultimate solution for remote, high-performing security surveillance.

It’s simple to install, easy to use and it’s cost-effective for every business, big or small, to manage and monitor their security.
