    v4.7.0 Update Notes

Optimized IPC pairing in QR code mode

For legacy versions, the page for IP camera (IPC) pairing with QR code did not support brightness adjustment. In certain conditions, for example, when a device ran under excessive environment brightness, the device failed to recognize the QR code. As a result, pairing could not be finished.

Currently, after this IPC pairing page is opened, the app automatically adapts the screen brightness to scanning as predefined. If users want to further adjust the brightness of the page, they can modify the brightness setting in the mobile operating system. Then, the mobile operating system setting will prevail.

Optimized login and registration experience for iOS

Optimized the authorization process for initial login to the app for iOS according to Apple’s requirements. During initial login, users can choose to enable access to all required permissions. User experience can thus be enhanced. This also avoids any rejection in an app launching request due to the authorization issue.

v4.7.0 Update Notes

Optimized home settings

The Home Settings page shows the home location predefined by users. This helps users conveniently check location information. If the location feature is not turned on, the home location can still be configured over the network.
