Thread: SQ8 MiniCamera

  1. #1

    Default SQ8 MiniCamera

    Those in the know ... how do you operate the darn thing? A cleaned up English guide is required. There are just two buttons and a LED with states of off, blue, purple, red and flashing. I can't decipher the Chinese-English guide nor the video guide I previously found.
    Dear government. I employ you.

    Quick read:
    You plug it in and it starts recording.
    You unplug it and it stops.
    To view i guess stick the sd card into a pc?

    Yeah no. Can't figure how to switch it off (the no LED state I presume). So I put in the SD card whilst it's been on. Press the reset button and plug in a powerbank. Come back to it two hours later and then try to switch it of to remove the SD card. That is the only recording I got - the period between when I was messing about to switch off and remove the sd card.

    Apparently when powered externally the motion detection does not work. Facepalm, motion detection running hours on end would kill the internal battery in not time.

    There is an English user manual for the SQ8 here:

    "English"

    Yeah I have been there. Figured that when the light is red it is in recording state. 700MB AVI for a 5 minute video. TBF I bought it for the giggles, I must see if I can re-purpose my dashcam instead whilst I await SAPO delivering my WIFI cams from Banggood,
