The Kasa Smart App is available for download in both the Android and Apple app stores. Once the app is downloaded, you will want to open up the app on your phone. On the starting page of the app, you will have the option to log in or create a new account. If you have previously set up other Kasa devices, you can use the same login. Once you have logged in, you are ready to set up your newest device.
Now that you are logged into your Kasa Smart account, the Kasa Smart App will allow you to see all of your existing Kasa Smart devices as well as set up new ones.
Select the plus button in the upper right-hand corner to add a new device. Then select “Cameras” within the device options and then “Casa Spot” for the specific camera you are setting up. This will initiate the connection process for your new Kasa Spot Camera.
You will know your Kasa Spot camera is ready for setup when the Indicator LED is alternating orange and green. Next in the setup process, you will have to go into your phone’s Wi-Fi menu and join the Kasa Cam Wi-Fi network. This is a temporary Wi-Fi network that your Kasa Spot is producing for the setup process. Once the setup process is complete, this Wi-Fi network will disappear.
Connecting to the Kasa Cam Wi-Fi network will allow your new Kasa Spot camera to connect directly to your phone to finish the setup. Once connected to the Kasa Cam Wi-Fi network, return to the Kasa Smart app.
Now that your phone is connected to your new Kasa Spot, you will be able to select the Wi-Fi network you want your Kasa Spot to connect to within the Kasa Smart app. Select your Wi-Fi network and then enter the password for your Wi-Fi. The LED indicator light on your Kasa spot cam will flash red while working on connecting to the Wi-Fi.
Once your Kasa Spot camera is connected to Wi-Fi, the LED indicator light will switch to flashing green. The app will prompt you to complete the final steps of the setup process for your Kasa Spot.
