Not getting photos you think should be coming in? Don’t worry - just watch our video below, or continue scrolling to follow the step by step instructions to find out why. Please note, the steps vary slightly between the app and website.
1. Ensure your camera is Active on your account. If you haven’t activated your camera please click here for that process. Once activated, go to the Manage Devices portion of your account and you should see your camera listed.
2. Check the status and last connection date. If your camera is Active, and it has been MORE than 24 hours since the last time the camera checked in, then you will need to restart the camera and format the SD Card. See below on how to check for the most recent activity from the app.
3. Ensure you have a recommended SD Card, and it’s formatted. SD Cards can sometimes become corrupted with picture data. If your camera is showing activity WITHIN a 24 hour period, please reformat the SD Card from your camera settings. The next time your camera connects it will receive the one-time instructions to format the card. See below for how to format your SD Card from the app.
Be sure to have a new set of lithium batteries with you at all times.
Even though you haven't been receiving transmitted pictures, your camera is likely still taking them and storing them on the SD Card. To prevent deleting any pictures you may not have received since the last connection, you will want to swap out the SD Card with a new one, and then take the old home to view those pictures on your computer or laptop.
4. Ensure you have photos available on your plan. If your picture allotment has been maxed out then you will stop receiving photos until your plan’s monthly cycle resets, you upgrade your plan, or purchase additional pictures. See below for how to view your picture count from the app.
5. Make sure your billing is up to date. Ensure that your billing information on file is correct and up to date. From the app your information can be found under Profile > Credit Card Information.
6. Ensure your signal is good. While your camera can and will transmit with low signal, that can also be the reason your camera loses it's connection. If your camera loses connection and is not able to re-connect on it's own within 24 hours of it's last connection, then refer to STEP TWO above and you will need to power cycle the camera.
When mounting or re-mounting your camera, make sure to get pictures uploaded from several different locations, even if just moving a few feet. Once you receive an image from the new location, check the camera's signal strength after that connection through your app. You want to try and find the spot that provides you with the strongest signal.
7. Check your camera’s battery life. Small surges of power are required to transmit photos. If your battery life is on the lower end be sure to to replace them with our recommended batteries.
8. Reset your gallery search filters. Double-check the search filters on your gallery page and reset them if necessary. If you have search parameters selected in your gallery, then you will only see those pictures. To clear the search filter, be sure and select Clear and then Apply. The red filter bubble should disappear.
9. Check your camera’s settings and upload frequency. For example, if your upload frequency is set to 1/Day, then you will only be receiving picture uploads one time per 24 hours. See below for how to find that setting option from the app.
10. Refresh your App. Slide your thumb down your phone’s screen from the gallery page (or any page) to refresh. This will help pull down any pictures recently taken if they are available, and update any camera information that might have recently changed, like your camera's recent activity. Or, if viewing from moultriemobile.com, simply click ‘Filters’ and then click ‘Reset’.
