Owlcam Family FAQ
What is Owlcam Family and how does it work?
The owner of an Owlcam (admin) can invite up to four other people (guests) to join their family, letting them share their Owlcams via the Owlcam app. While driving, the videos and clips you capture are yours and only yours.
You’re allowing your guests to use your Owlcam in the same way you would.
- Access Live View and History
- Create clips
- Receive Alerts/Notifications
Five. You (admin) and four other guests. These can be any combination of iOS and Android devices.
Any owner (admin) of an Owlcam must invite you. Once you receive the invitation, you’ll need to have the Owlcam app and then create a profile to accept.
In the Owlcam app on the “MENU” page, tap “Owlcam Family” and then tap “+ Add Guest.”
You can invite as many as you’d like! However, only the first four guests to accept the invitation will be added to your Owlcam Family. If you want to switch guests, you’ll need to remove and then add new ones.
Alerts and Notifications are only sent to the Selected Driver. The Selected Driver is the person who is currently driving and can be changed via the Owlcam display.
When you enter the vehicle, tap the initials in the top-left corner of the Owlcam display to bring up the driver switching menu. Then, tap on your initials to become the Selected Driver.
