How do I reset the Hombli Indoor Camera?

The Hombli Smart Indoor Camera can be reset by pressing the reset button

Press the reset button for five seconds and the camera will reset itself. When the indicator light will flicker red light you can add the camera again to the Hombli App.

My camera shows that it is already connected to another account

To prevent the canera from being misused in case of theft, the camera stays always connected to the users account.

A new user cannot connect a new user account. If the device was previously connected to a different account that you don’t have access to, you must remove it first from the Hombli app, before it can be added again. If the doorbell was not previously added to your account, you can tap the link to request to disconnect the device.

Is it possible to adjust the recording to a limited zone or does it record everything within a fixed zone?

It is currently not yet possible to set specific areas to record, but we are constantly improving the Hombli app with new features. It is possible to set the motion detection sensitivity on: Off, Low, Medium and High.

How theft-proof is the camera? Can a thief do something with it after it has been stolen?

If the camera is stolen, the thief can’t do anything with it. The camera is linked (in the cloud) to the person who added the device to the Hombli app. When someone resets the camera and attempts to add the device to the Hombli app a notification will appear that the camera is already linked and must first be disconnected by the original owner.

The thief can contact us and request to disconnect the product from the original owner, but in this case we have his contacts and if necessary we can take steps to return the Smart Indoor Camera to the original owner.

Is the data on the microSD card encrypted?

Yes, your privacy is our top priority. The video footages are therefore only visible through the Hombli app, when the memory card is in the camera. It is not possible to view the footage from the memory card on a computer. It is possible to export images to the internal storage of your phone and those images can of course freely be shared with other devices.

How long is the delay between the camera and the Hombli app?

This is highly dependent on the network in which the camera and the phone are connected to. The better the signal to the WiFi router, the faster the image appears on the phone.

How can I stream videos from my camera to Google Nest Hub, Chromecast device or Alexa Echo Show?

To stream video footage from the Smart Indoor Camera to third party services from Google or Amazon, you need to share your device ID with us to gain access to this service. This way we can manually setup this feature for your device.
