How to share your OSI Wi-fi Camera Account with Smart Life App

There are two ways you can share control (set up new users) for your OSI Wi-Fi Mini Camera, OSI Wi-Fi Bullet Camera, OSI Wi-Fi Floodlight Camera or OSI Wi-Fi Video Doorbell. 

A. FIRST METHOD: Sharing the OSI Camera with a specific Smart Life Account (NO link involved, you need to have the email address of the Smart Life account you are sharing with )

  1. Select the Camera in the Smart life App 
  2. Select the pencil icon on the top right corner
  3. Select Share Device under "others"
  4. Select Add Sharing
  5. Select Share with Account Smart Life
  6. Enter the Region and the email address associated with the account for the person you are sharing with.  
  7. Select Done
  8. You will now see the account name and email address for the person you are sharing with under 'Share Device'   
  9. To unshare, select the account you are sharing the device with, then select unshare.

B. SECOND METHOD: Sharing the Wi-Fi Camera with others using SMS, messenger, email, private messenger, What's App and other social media. There is no limit as too how many people you can share with.

  1. Select the Wi-Fi Camera in the Smart life App 
  2. Select the pencil icon on the top right corner
  3. Select Share Device under "others"
  4. Select Add Sharing
  5. Enter # of person(s) in the box that says Share with others (Note: the person you share with must have a Smart Life Account already set up)
  6. IMPORTANT: Entering the # of persons to share with means how many people can be added. For example, if you enter 3 persons, after those 3 persons clicked the shared link and added themselves, the link turns invalid so others can no longer add the alarm system when they click the link. You can check from the APP to see which people are added, set the validity period for sharing with them, or delete them directly.
  7. Choose the method in which you want to share below (SMS, messenger, email, private messenger, What's App and other social media etc.).
  8.  When you select one of those methods of sharing it will add the share link automatically to the message. 
  9. When you send that message, the the person who receives the message needs to click the sharing invitation link. 
  10.  They will then see a message saying 'account name' shared a device with you, the device that they want to share will be displayed and at the bottom a link will say 'Go to Smart Life' . 
  11. When they press the 'Go to Smart Life' link, they will be asked to 'Accept' or 'Cancel'.  
  12. When they accept, their Smart Life app will open and the shared device will be listed under 'All Devices' under the tab 'Devices Shared with me'
