Scheduling a camera, but it comes on outside of scheduled time


I hope this hasn’t been asked too often, but a quick search didn’t turn anything up.

MY problem is this. I was given a Pan Cam for Christmas. I bought a Samsung micro SD card to put in it, then scheduled it to turn on at 7:30 am and off at 4:00 pm. I also set motion and noise detection/triggering. My assumption was that the camera would turn itself on in the morning, then off in the afternoon, and would record anything that triggered noise or motion detection. That’s not happening.

It does not turn on in the morning of its own volition, though it will come back on after I’ve turned it off (weird) in the afternoon. What am I doing wrong?


Did you set up that schedule using the shortcut feature?


Are you out of the house by 7:30am? It sounds like there may be a communication problem between your app and the camera. Are you otherwise able to access the camera from outside of your home?
