Important Message from Foscam Digital Technologies Regarding US Sales & Service

We, Foscam.US (aka Foscam Digital Technologies and now Amcrest Technologies), are an independent United States based distributor of "Foscam" branded products. We have been offering telephone support, US local warranty and building the Foscam brand in the US for the past 7 years. However, we are deeply saddened to report that, even after all of this, our overseas suppliers have decided to undercut us and supply to our major customers directly. For this reason, we have no choice but to suspend telephone support for all Foscam branded products. If you have purchased a Foscam camera directly from us or from one of our authorized retailers, technical support is still available via email at


For customers who have not purchased from us directly, we advise you to please contact Foscam Shenzhen or the distributor which you have purchased from. In the meantime, we have launched our own new brand of IP cameras called Amcrest, which has superior quality products and full telephone technical support 7 days per week. We hope you can support us in our new venture. For more information, please visit

Setting up Multi-Device – See up to 9 of your Cameras on one Screen

This is the guide on setting up your IP Cameras to be able to see more than one of your cameras at a time.

Must Read: Before we even get to step one, you must first understand that the only way to view multiple cameras is if you use Internet Explorer, no other browser supports multi-devices yet. And you will also need to enable ActiveX Controls, normally Internet Explorer will prompt you to enable it if it is not already enabled. If you still have problems with ActiveX Controls, please check out our guide on ActiveX Controls by clicking here.

1) First Log into your camera and goto “For Administrator” and then “Multi-Device Settings”

2) Select “The 2nd Device” and input an Alias if you like, the Host which should be the IP of the other camera, and the Port will be the port of your other camera.

3) Put in the Username and Password for the camera you are adding and press submit.

4) You can press back (in the bottom left corner) to go back to viewing your camera, and then you can press ‘For Visitor’ and select the interface for 1, 4, or 9 Cameras.

And that is it, if you have any more cameras you can just repeat step 2 and 3 again with the new cameras info.
