We understand the importance of staying connected, even when using other apps on your mobile device. The Background Play feature is designed to meet this need, allowing you to hear sounds from your nursery room while multitasking on your device, and we're here to guide you through the Background Play function to ensure seamless monitoring even when the Lollipop App is not in the foreground.
Background Play Functionality:
Background play is akin to a music player on your mobile device, allowing you to stay connected with the sounds from your nursery while using other apps. Here's how you can enable and troubleshoot Background Play:
- Ensure your phone or mobile device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Lollipop Baby Camera (indoor mode).
- Click on the small phone icon within the live view to activate Background Play. This way, you can hear your baby while multitasking on your device.
You will receive push notifications if there's any disconnection between your camera and mobile device, providing added peace of mind.
- If your mobile device appears in Outdoor mode despite being on the same Wi-Fi network, try the following:
- Reboot your Wi-Fi access point. (How to reconnect your Lollipop's wifi?)
- Replug the camera and check for a resolution.
- Perform a Network Diagnosis to confirm the camera's current mode (Outdoor - RTMP or Indoor - RTSP). Your device should be in Indoor mode when connected to the same Wi-Fi.
- Check for the AP Isolation feature in your Wi-Fi router settings. If enabled, it may hinder the camera from running in Indoor mode.
🍭We hope these steps assist you in making the most of the Background Play feature. Should you encounter any persisting issues or have additional questions, our dedicated support team is ready to lend a helping hand.
