Lollipop Baby Camera is a Wi-Fi-based camera, so the network connection is a vital factor to support the quality of the camera.
The camera needs a signal strength between 70 and 100 in order to work with the minimum number of issues related to bitrate negotiations. If the camera can’t get a signal between those values, it is better to relocate the camera or find other solutions to increase the coverage of the Wi-Fi network.
When connecting to a Wi-Fi network, the signal needs to be as strong as possible. In Lollipop Baby Camera, this is reported on a scale of 0 (no signal at all) to 100 (strongest signal). The stronger the signal, the faster it can transmit data.
In order to optimize your connection, the camera negotiates the bitrate (maximum speed of data transfer) with the router. This negotiation is common in almost all modern radio communications. This means that if the signal is weak, the bitrate negotiated might not be enough to transmit video data. If this happens, the live view or the audio will be choppy and laggy. At worst, the camera might stop transmitting.
Here are the steps to check your internet connection in the Lollipop app:
1. Click on the three dots in the right upper-hand corner, then click on “Network Diagnosis."
2. Once you’ve done that, start diagnosing the internet speed.
3. After a few seconds, it’ll show you your internet speed. The ideal speed should be between 70 to 100.
If your phone is connected to Wi-Fi, it’ll show Indoor mode.
If your phone is using its cellular data, it’ll show Outdoor mode.
