  • Make sure you name your cameras in a way that easily identifies their location or purpose (e.g., “Front Door”, “Living Room”, “Warehouse Entrance”).

  • Some apps might require you to be connected to the same local network as the cameras for certain administrative tasks, including renaming. Ensure your mobile device is connected to the correct Wi-Fi network if you face any issues.

  • If you face challenges or if the steps above don’t align with what you see in the DMSS app, consider checking the app’s official documentation or help section for specific instructions.
