Reconnect your camera to an existing internet connection
If you get a new router or you change your Wi-Fi credentials (i.e. your network name or password) on the existing network, you will need to reconfigure your camera’s settings as explained in this video and the following instructions.
To reconnect your Outdoor Camera to the internet using the Access Point (AP) Mode, follow these steps:
- Hold down the Reset button on the underside of the camera and release when the LED begins to flash white (about 5 to 7 seconds)
- Join the ADC-V723 (XX:XX:XX) Wi-Fi network from your mobile phone or on your computer
- While connected to the ADC-V723 Wi-Fi network, go to http://V723install in your browser and follow the on-screen steps

- Select your Wi-Fi network from the list, enter the Wi-Fi password and select Submit
- There will be a message indicating the camera is connecting to the Wi-Fi network
- Select OK and close your browser tab
- Once your camera’s LED is solid green for a few minutes, try to access Live Video on your mobile app or through the web portal to make sure your camera is successfully reconnected to the internet
Note: If your camera’s LED does not turn solid green, reboot the camera and try these steps again.
If your router supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) – a wireless network security standard that tries to make connections between a router and wireless devices (cameras) faster and easier – you can also reconnect your Outdoor Camera to the internet using the WPS Mode by following these steps:
Note: If your router is located far away from your camera, we recommend you recruit a second helper to complete these steps with you.
- Find the WPS button on your router
Located at the back of the booster

- Next, press your router’s WPS button for 1-6 seconds until the light flashes on your router
- Wait a few minutes for the router and camera to connect to each other. The Outdoor Camera’s LED light will flash then turn solid green if successful
