We recommend connecting the 360 camera to the smartphone via WI-Fi if using the device for the first time.  


1. Press the top button on the side of the 360 camera. Make sure the Wi-Fi is on. 

2. Go to smartphone settings and turn on the Wi-Fi of the smartphone.

3. Select the network named “THETAYJ000000000.OSC”. The 0’s at the end is a combination of numbers and letters, unique to each 360 camera.

4. This series of numbers after the letter serves as the Wi-Fi password.
