What Causes Night Owl to Lose Wifi Connection?
There are a few different things that can cause your Night Owl to lose wifi connection. The most common reason is that the router is not close enough to the camera.
If the router is too far away, the signal will be too weak, and the connection will be lost. Another reason can be interference from other devices. If you have a lot of devices connected to the same router, it can cause the signal to be weaker.
Additionally, if there are any walls or other obstacles between the router and the camera, it can also cause the connection to be lost. The other main reason why Night Owl cameras lose wifi connection is that the password is not entered correctly.
Make sure that you are entering the password correctly, and if you are still having trouble, you can try resetting the password. If none of these solutions work, you can always try moving the router closer to the camera or using a different router.
Why Is It Important to Connect Night Owl to Wifi?
There are a few reasons why connecting your Night Owl to wifi is important. The most obvious reason is that it allows you to view live footage from your camera on your phone or tablet.
This is great if you want to check on your home while you are away or if you want to see what is happening in your backyard. Additionally, it allows you to receive push notifications if the camera detects motion. This way, you can immediately be alerted if someone is on your property.
Another great feature is that you can set up a schedule for the camera. For example, you can have the camera turn on at night to see any animals that might be roaming around. If you have an indoor camera, you can also use the wifi connection to talk to whoever is in the room.
Finally, connecting your Night Owl to wifi gives you peace of mind knowing that your camera is always connected and working properly.
Step by Step How to Connect My Night Owl to Wifi
1. Open the Night Owl App
The first step is to open the Night Owl app on your phone or tablet. This is the app that you will use to view the live footage from your camera. If you do not have the app, you can download it for free from the App Store or Google Play. But, first, open the app and create an account. Once you have created an account, you can log in and start using the app.
2. Select “Add a Device.”
Once you have logged in, you will see the app’s main dashboard. You will see a “+” sign on the dashboard’s top right corner. Tap on this sign, and a new window will pop up. In this new window, select “Add a Device.” If you have more than one Night Owl camera, you can also select “Add Another Device.” Avoid selecting “Connect to a DVR” unless you add an older Night Owl camera model.
3. Choose Camera Type
The next step is to select the type of camera that you have. For this example, we will be using an “IP Camera.” These are the most common types of Night Owl cameras. If you have a different type of camera, select the appropriate option. Try not to select the “Analog Camera” option, as this will not work with most Night Owl cameras. Also, avoid selecting the “DVR” option unless you have an older Night Owl camera model.
4. Enter Serial Number
After selecting the camera type, you will be asked to enter the camera’s serial number. The serial number is usually located on the back of the camera. Once you have entered the serial number, click “Next.” Try to avoid putting any spaces before or after the serial number. If you have an 8-character serial number, enter it without the spaces.
5. Select your Wifi Network
The next step is to select your wifi network. Make sure that you are selecting the correct network and that it is spelled correctly. Once you have selected the network, click “Next.” Avoid selecting the “5G” network, as this will not work with most Night Owl cameras. Contact your internet service provider if you are unsure which network to select.
6. Enter your Wifi Password
After selecting your wifi network, you will be asked to enter the password. Make sure that you are entering the password correctly, as it is case-sensitive. Try to avoid putting any spaces before or after the password. Avoid using special characters in the password, as this can cause problems.
If you are unsure of your wifi password, you can check the back of your router for the password or contact your internet service provider. Once you have entered the password, click “Next.”
7. Connect to your Night Owl Camera
The next step is to connect to your Night Owl camera. You will see a list of available Night Owl cameras. Select the camera that you want to connect to and click “Next.” The app will then start connecting to your camera.
This process can take up to 30 seconds. If the app cannot connect to your camera, ensure that you are within range of the camera and that the wifi password is correct.
8. Give your Camera a Name
After connecting to your camera, you will be asked to give it a name. This name is for your reference and can be anything you want. Avoid using special characters in the name, as this can cause problems. Once you have given your camera a name, click “Next.”
9. Test the Connection
The next step is to test the connection. You will see a preview of the live footage from your camera. If the preview is not working, ensure that you are still within range of the camera and that the wifi password is correct. If the preview is working, click “Finish.” Avoid clicking “Cancel,” as this will exit the setup process.
10. Place the Camera
After completing the setup process, you will need to place your camera. The best place for your camera is in a location with a clear view of the area you want to monitor.
Avoid placing the camera in a location where it can be easily blocked or tampered with. Once you have found a suitable location for your camera, use the included mounting hardware to secure the camera in place.

What Type of Internet Connection is Required for a Night Owl Security System?
Night Owl security systems require a high-speed internet connection with at least 2 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload speeds. Night Owl strongly recommends using an Ethernet cable connected to your router or modem instead of Wi-Fi for the best performance. A wireless connection can be used, but it may result in slower speeds. Additionally, a Night Owl system needs a static IP address to ensure that the system can always be connected. If you are unsure if your internet connection meets these requirements, please get in touch with your Internet Service Provider for assistance.
Night Owl also offers cellular backup options for customers who don’t have access to a high-speed wired connection. With cellular service, Night Owl systems can connect to the internet and alert you of any suspicious activity in the home. Cellular backup options are available with all major cellular carriers, including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint. If you’re interested in this option, please get in touch with your local Night Owl dealer for more information.
Night Owl recommends using a high-speed internet connection with an Ethernet cable for maximum security and reliability for optimal performance. Cellular backup is also available if you don’t have access to wired internet service. Whatever connection you choose, your security system will work hard to keep you and your family safe.
So there you have it! Everything you need to know about how to connect my night owl to wifi. Following these simple steps, you can connect your Night Owl camera to Wi-Fi and start monitoring your home or business. Be sure to enter all information correctly and place the camera safely.
