You can always watch live views when you are traveling or on a business trip. However, when you’re outdoors, the video will show as “Live via cloud,” and you may need to refresh every 30 minutes if your phone and Lollipop Baby Camera are under different networks.
In the below situations, the camera will also choose to video stream via the cloud:
- When you have many devices playing live video via a local network
- When your mobile devices are having issues with connecting to a Wi-Fi router (e.g., mobile devices being out of the coverage of your Wi-Fi signal)
- When your Wi-Fi router is overloading
- When you have turned on the “client isolation” feature of your Wi-Fi router, it could block the camera from running in Indoor mode
