Check Wireless Strength

- Confirm that there are not any environmental obstacles between the camera and Homelife Security Router. Large metal objects such as mirrors, refrigerators, and microwaves can often interfere with the wireless signal.

Clean the Face of the Camera
Wipe the face of the camera with a dry cloth to remove dust and debris. If the face of the camera has dust, dirt, pollen, or other materials on it, this may impact the image quality.
Reposition the Camera
If the camera is positioned directly facing a window or other area producing a glare, it may have difficulties with sharpness or color balance. If you cannot move the camera, try adding a lamp or light to the area in question.
Keep the following tips in mind when repositioning the camera:
- Do not position the camera facing a window or direct sunlight.
- Do not position in areas where you have lighting situations that regularly create moving shadows.
