How To Use Recording and Micro SD Card
Without a Micro SD card (optional, sold separately), the MERCURY camera can show live camera video, save screenshots or videos of the camera stream to your phone for later, and record still snapshots of motion alerts when notifications are turned on. Installing a Micro SD card will further enable video recording and playback from your phone. When the card is installed, the camera will continuously record and playback video to your phone until the card is full (up to 128GB supported). Video is encrypted and only viewable through the Geeni app on your phone, so do not try removing the MicroSD card to view the video.
How Much Video Can MERCURY Camera Record?
Depending on video quality, the camera will use around 1GB of storage per day, so a 32GB card can provide weeks of continuous video. As the card fills up, the oldest footage will automatically be replaced by a new video, so you don’t have to ever worry about running out of storage space.
How Many MERCURY Camera Can I Control?
The Geeni app can control an unlimited amount of devices in an unlimited amount of locations. Your router may have a limit of how many devices can be connected to one router.
