See below for a guide to each tab in the app. After you're done, the following guides may also be useful as you get to know your Lighthouse:
Home to your live video stream, you can rotate the Home tab for landscape view. If you’ve got more than one Lighthouse device set up, swipe right or left to switch between them.
There are a number of buttons on the Home tab. Here's what each one is for:
Siren: tap this button activates the 100db alarm.
Two-way audio: use this button to activate conversation between the app and device.
Security alerts on/off: an open padlock indicates that security alerts are turned off; a closed padlock means security alerts are turned on (more on security alerts here). Tapping this button manually turns security alerts on and off, overriding the location-based automatic system.
Privacy controls: tap here to manually turn the camera off, then back on.
Daily Recap: tap this button to watch a sped-up version of the day, or pause and scroll through to find just what you're looking for.
People: tap this button for the most recent clips of people Lighthouse has seen. The colored in amount of activity by people that day; the fuller the circle, the more activity. The time below the button shows when a person was last seen.
Pets: tap this button for the most recent clips of people Lighthouse has seen. The colored in amount of activity by people that day; the fuller the circle, the more activity. The time below the button shows when a pet was last seen.
Daily Activity: see how much person and pet activity Lighthouse has seen in the last 24 hours.
Add authorized users to your account by tapping the icon in the upper right. Security alerts will automatically turn off for authorized users, preventing false alerts for family members and trusted guests.
Teach your Lighthouse to recognizes faces by tapping the Faces icon at the top of the tab. Once you've tagged a few faces to a user, tap that user's name on the People tab to confirm more images of him/her. Tagging people's faces will not turn off security alerts, but you will be able to search based on a seen visitor's name.
Tapping on an individual user allows account owners to manage existing authorized users’ access levels, invite tagged users to the app, or remove them altogether (learn more about access levels and adding users). Once faces have been assigned to that person, more matches for that person will be show, which you can approve or ignore.
Tap the icon in the upper right corner to manage your Pings, or create new ones (learn more about using Pings) to notify you about things you’re interested in.
You’ll find a daily summary of yourself and other users coming and going, along with the following icons:
Ping: see which Ping was triggered, and when (for example: John arriving home, 4:36pm)
Alarm: if a security alert is triggered you'll see the name of the camera and the time. Want to see what triggered the alert? Just tap on that event to view the video.
Tap the microphone icon and speak (or tap to the left of the mic and type) to ask about something that happened or set up a custom Ping (learn more about Search or Pings):
- "Did you see the dog between 2pm and 4pm today?"
- "Tell me if [name of person you've added to your account] doesn't get home by 4pm"
You can also use the suggested Pings or searches by tapping on them, or edit the text of a Ping or search by tapping on the result after it’s entered.
Profile: edit your account information, change your password, or log out of the app.
Site location: view and edit your camera's location.
Camera(s): change your camera's name, turn off the status light and adjust its privacy settings.
Add New Camera: tap here to add a second camera.
