Live View is not showing a picture

Both HomeMonitor and the device you’re using to view live require a minimum upload and download speed of 256kbps. The HomeMonitor HD range requires this to be a minimum 512kbps. You can check your Internet speed here at

If your Internet speed meets these minimum requirements, please ensure your HomeMonitor is placed within 10-15 meters of your router so the camera has enough signal strength and bandwidth to upload video, making allowances for the bandwidth your other devices and programs might be using.

HomeMonitor has the option of disconnecting the Live View in the ‘My Home’ section of your online account at and in the smartphone app. If you want to be able to view video make sure there is a green light on the bottom left of the ‘Connection’ icon. If there isn’t simply click or tap this button to enable Live View.

If you’re still unable to view video using our desktop site, you may need to update your Flash player. Simply search ‘Adobe Flash Update’ in your favourite search engine and check for the latest update. If you continue to experience any problems, simply contact us here:
