Add a Camera to Live Cams (iOS)
Launch Live Cams Pro on your iPhone or iPad and wait until the “thumbnail screen” appears. This screen is intended to show one or more cameras at a time with a simple video display and no PTZ controls. It will be empty the first time you run the app. Click the + sign on the bottom toolbar to add a camera.

Click the “Change” button for the camera profile field and select the appropriate camera profile for your INSTAR Camera. Enter the camera details including the IP address or DNS host name, HTTP port and the login username/password for the camera. Press Save and if the camera does not connect or fails with some sort of error, tap and hold one finger on the error and wait for a menu to pop up.
