Sorry, mine is Xiao Fang, after updated camera firmware to the latest one, I can access the sd card but the 15sec motion detected videos still unable to download.
As for the recording to the sd card, the latest firmware now have new auto motion detect recording mode to replace the time zone selection mode. I like this new feature, it lessen the stress to the sd card.

motion detected videos are not store on the SD card but in the Cloud
If you meant "download" as in save those videos to your phone or pc - i dun think you can do that
i can view mine just fine. try using a different network - eg if you were using wifi, try using 4G and vice versa (to eliminate if you have a connection problem)

I tried 4G, still can't download the short 15sec motion detected video from the cloud.
I have no problem to view motion detected video recorded on SD card via WiFi and 4G.
Now SD card has two options of recording, 24hrs or motion video. Motion recording minimum 1 min and will continue recording if continuous motion detected. Schedule recording no longer available.

Yes sir. It's min 1min and continuous motion detection recording can supplement the footage not capture by the short 15 sec motion video and the few min waiting time (I think is around 4 to 5 min ) for next motion detection in the cloud storage.
Also, less stress to the SD card.

I was able to view videos from their cloud but I dunno how to access the videos from the card. How?
Previously we weren’t able to record to card
Every firmware updates seems to have big changes. This guide is useless now haha

Tap "Device online" then under the live stream video, look at the bottom right corner for an icon named "Look Back".

I was able to record to the SD card all these while even on old Xiao Fang firmware. Previously it has 2 recording modes which are All Day or Schedule, but the latest camera firmware discarded schedule recording and replaced it with motion detection recording.
The access to the motion video in the SD card is far more easier than the motion alarm in the cloud. Faster playback, can select preferred time zone to view, can scroll back and forth and footage not limited to 15 sec.

The app can work using 3G/4G and other wifi network, so I dont see why in your situation it wont work. It wont know which wifi you paired it to after it is setup
Please report back  sweat.gif

Hi, anyone know if the DaFang have motion alarm which alerts our phone as soon as it detects movement when supposingly no one would be at home?

I read through the post and it seems that we have to download the motion alarm from the server. Is there ways to know as soon as the camera picked up motion or is there any other model that has this function?

Hi,

I also have Dafang camera and I am pretty satisfied but I have one issue.
Everything works fine via home LAN....when I am out of home I can access via phone mobile internet(4G) to see the live capture.

The issue is that when I am out of home, I have trouble to access recording to SD card. When I am at the same LAN everything works smooth. But only over 4G is that issue present. Over 4G I can watch live capture, sometime I can even download motions on the cloud(last days cloud works crap)...

I can't access to my recording on SD via 4G..maybe is the issue related to my home xDSL line 10Mbit/1Mbit...maybe is 1 Mbit for upload to little?

Thanks and regards
