Installing the Sengled Smart LED with Security Camera G2 (Snap 2)

First, open the Sengled Snap app (orange icon) and login with your previously created login credentials.

Then, press “Add Device”. From here, you will be on the “Let’s Get Started” page. Since the Snap 2 has an Ethernet port, press “Yes” on this page.

 

From here, power the Snap on near your router. Connect the Ethernet cord from your router to your Snap 2. Make sure your phone is connected to the same 2.4 GHz or 5.0 GHz WiFi that your phone is on.

We recommend connecting your Snap to your router’s 2.4 GHz since the 2.4 GHz band has a better range than the 5.0 GHz.

After your phone is connected to the WiFi that your router is broadcasting and after your Snap 2 is plugged in via Ethernet cord to the same router, press “Next”.

Look at the indicator light on the Snap, if it is red, press “Red” to proceed.

 

The pairing will be in process and you will see the following screens briefly.

Now you will be on the “Please selected a router…” page.

Select the WiFi that is broadcasted from your router. In this example, we tapped on the “Support_2.4G” since that is the WiFi to which our phone is connected.

 

This brings a pop-up that prompts us to enter the password for the WiFi which we chose. After entering the password and checking to make sure the password is correct by press the eye icon.

From there, the Snap will connect to your router.

 

You will be redirected to the “Your Snap is Waking up” screen. Please allow a few minutes for your Snap to communicate with your router and connect to the internet.

Once the Snap is connected, you will be on a page that says “Congrats! You’re all set.” From this page, you can rename your Snap, if you like by tapping on its default name. In the provided example, we chose to keep the default name.

Once the Snap is named to your liking, press “Done”.

 

After that is done, the Snap is ready to be installed in the desired location. Power the Snap off, remove the Ethernet cable and install the Snap in the desired location. Once the Snap is tightened into the fixture, rotate the Snap counter-clockwise until the camera is at the bottom (in the 6 o’clock position).

Please keep in mind the Snap is a WiFi camera and is completely depended on the WiFi at the location the Snap is being used in. This means if the Snap is being used 20 feet away from your router, the WiFi at the location the Snap is being used in the bandwidth of the WiFi would need to be 2Mbps of download and 2Mbps of upload; the signal strength would have to be -65dBm.

Once the Snap is in the desired fixture, press “Next”.

After the Snap is situated in the desired location to your liking, power the Snap on. Make sure the indicator light is blue. If the indicator light is blue, press “Done”.

If the indicator light is red, press “follow these steps”.

After pressing “Done”, you will be redirected to the “My Snap” screen. By tapping the play icon, you can go to the “Live” screen for your Snap.
