Olfi App – Frequently Asked Questions
Firstly, you’ll need to download the Olfi app to your smartphone or tablet. This is available for both iOS and Android. With your Olfi one.five powered on and in a video or photo mode, press the up settings button to activate Wi-Fi. You will then need to connect your mobile device to your Olfi using your mobile device’s Wi-Fi settings. You will notice that your Olfi acts as a Wi-Fi hotspot (it will not provide an internet connection). Open the app and you can now control your Olfi.
More information on how to use this feature is available via our Tutorials page.
In your device (phone or tablet) settings, there should be an option to ‘Ask before connecting to available networks’, or something similar. If this is not enabled then your phone or tablet is likely to try and connect to its Usual Wifi (internet based) preference over the Olfi connection.
If you have a SIM in your device too and have Mobile Data enabled, this can, for certain devices but not all, also pull your connection to your Olfi. If your connection won’t hold, try putting your device into Flight Mode, and then enable Wifi. Your issues should be resolved.
The app may quit expectedly if you have errors on your memory card.
If you have corrupt files, delete or fix these before connecting your Olfi to the App.
If you haven’t got corrupt files, your memory card may just need a format to get working properly again. Connect your SD card to a computer and transfer all the files from your memory card. Format your card and then try reloading the files back onto the card to transfer to your phone or tablet
Also, using your memory card in another device, other than the Olfi can cause the App to quit if you haven’t formatted (deleted files) your memory card inside your Olfi after using it in another device first. This is because the App looks for particular file structures on a memory card. Extra files may confuse the App and cause it to quit.
If your device is saying that it cannot connect to the App, or you get a message saying Connected – no internet, this can mean one of three things.
- Your Olfi has connected or is trying to connect to another device, and its not the one you intended it to connect to!For example: You have the App on your phone and tablet, and are trying to connect it to your phone. It may be that it is connecting to your tablet instead. When this happens, your device is likely to say attempting to connect or it may even find the device but not actually connect to it – saying no internet available, or something similar.Try changing the name of your Olfi, and altering the password by going into the Setup Menu and altering the Wifi SSID and password. Also, move away from other Wifi devices and try again.
- Your Olfi wifi isn’t working – test this by connecting with a friends phone or tablet as an alternative to see if the issue is with your device or the camera. If they can’t connect either, get in touch with us to let us know!
- Your phone or tablet has an issue with its wifi connections. Persistent ‘no internet’ errors tend to relate to your specific mobile or tablet device. Try getting in touch with the manufacturer of your device to see if they can help.
