At the end of the video we remind you to check your "Batts and Stats". We recommend checking your cameras at least monthly and using fresh batteries with every start of every project. Saving your card content at regular intervals protects against lost footage in case of card failure.
Afidus continues to update the firmware in immediate response to iOS/Android updates as well as implementing app improvements, performance updates, and new features. Thank you to everyone who provides feedback directly to us so we can pass it along and continue to help improve the Afidus cameras.
