How do I set up my FLIR FX camera using an Android tablet?

  1. Download the FLIR FX app from the Google Play Store. 


  2. Connect the included USB cable to the power adapter. Connect the other end of the USB cable to the camera or camera stand and connect the power adapter to a power outlet.

    NOTE: The REC LED located on top of the camera will glow orange to indicate the camera is charging. It will glow green when the camera is finished charging. The battery will take 6 hours to fully charge. You can connect the power adapter to either the USB port on the camera or camera stand. Do not connect a USB cable to both the camera and the stand at the same time.

  12. Select your Wi-Fi network from the list. Enter the password for your Wi-Fi network and tap Connect.

  13. The LED on the camera will flash while the camera is connecting to the Wi-Fi network. When it finishes connecting, it will glow green and the app will display the screen below.
