Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Share With Family & Friends?
Yes! You can grant family members and friends access to all Merkury devices, including cameras, plugs, lamps, doorbells, etc. To grant or remove sharing permissions, use the “Profile” button and “Device Sharing” link in the Geeni app.
The other user must have downloaded the Geeni app and created an account before they may share.
Use of Micro SD Cards for Recording
The smart Wi-Fi camera can display live camera video without a Micro SD card (extra, purchased individually), store screenshots or movies of the camera stream to your smartphone for later use, and record still images of movement alerts when alerts are turned on.
To further enable video recording and playing from your phone, install a Micro SD card. The camera will continue to capture and replay video to your phone after the card is placed until it is full (up to 128GB supported).
Do not attempt to remove the MicroSD card in order to see the movie because it is encrypted and only accessible through the Geeni app on your phone.
Can the camera record a lot of video?
A 32GB card can store weeks’ worth of nonstop footage because the camera uses about 1GB of storage every day, depending on video quality. You never have to be worried that you’ll run out of storage capacity because when the memory fills up, the oldest recording will be immediately replaced by a fresh recording.
What number of devices can I manage?
The Geeni app can manage an infinite number of gadgets in an infinite number of places. The number of devices that can be linked to your router may be restricted.
The name of my Merkury device seems strange. How do I change its name?
Click on one of the devices you wish to change from your main device list, select “Modify Device Name” from the advanced settings menu by clicking the “•••” icon in the top right corner of the screen (or Modify Group Name, if applicable).
You can then select a name that is more well-known.
How far can wireless devices reach?
The characteristics of the space and your home router have a significant impact on the Wi-Fi range in your home. For precise range information, consult your router’s specifications.
Will Geeni continue to function if my Wi-Fi or Internet is down?
To utilize Merkury items remotely, a Wi-Fi connection is required.
