Amcrest View Pro -Settings Import and Export

Post by rgibson »

I just installed 32 Cameras and then had to setup those same 32 cameras in 5 android phones.
Can we get an Import/Export Settings option in the Phone App.
.XML or .TXT with either a warning and clear text passwords or encrypted passwords.
that would also allow configuring 1 or 2 cameras, Export to say .TXT
Manually duplicate the rest of the entries, changing ip, port, name, password then import back into App.
Also as in my case, import into the other phones.

I have 3 more buildings to do, each building is grouped into a favorite. 20 to 32 cameras per building.
multiply that times the five phones.

password entered Manually in the .txt file could be delimited with something like CLEAR:secretpassword
during import, app would see this and encrypt password.
for security, importing an existing camera that has a new CLEAR:password, could require existing password before overwrite.
These are just some thoughts....

Yes I'd like to have this. I set up cams in an out of state home. I just got new cellphone but have no idea how to get those cameras into the app on new phone. I'm 1200 miles away from the cams.

I agree. It’s insane that you can’t share camera setup between devices.

Amcrest really needs to do better.

When adding a camera to View Pro, you will see an import option from amcrestview.com, but the posters here probably want something else. It does allow importing P2P cameras that have been added to amcrestview.com.

Just putting this out there again, maybe some help here Amcrest. :D
At least tell me where the data is stored in the phone app and I'll back it up myself! :evil:

You could try asking for the location of the app camera data by using https://amcrest.com/amcrestsupport
Also, depending on your needs you may be able to just use another android app like Tinycam that has export/import capability.
