9. Offline Notification
In the event that CuboAi/CuboAi Plus loses connection to Wi-Fi for 5 minutes and above, the App will send a notification to make sure parents are aware of this situation and can check on the connection as soon as possible.
Please check your Wi-Fi status to make sure the baby monitor stays connected:
- Check your Wi-Fi bandwidth using fast.com/ (A download/upload speed of at least 5 Mbps is required. If there are multiple devices connected to CuboAi/CuboAi Plus at the same time, the baby monitor will require a higher speed to maintain the stability of live streaming and other functions.
- If the Wi-Fi speed is higher than 5 Mbps but you are still experiencing connectivity issues, it is likely that the Wi-Fi strength is too weak. You may install a Wi-Fi extender to increase the Wi-Fi strength.
10. Sharing Your Account with Family and Friends
The CuboAi App supports up to 8 concurrent logins. You may share your CuboAi App account login credentials with your family members to login and see your little one or use the Family Sharing function to share your CuboAi/CuboAi Plus with friends & family without sharing the login info to protect your privacy.
CuboAi Reminder: The minimum required download/upload speed is 5 Mbps. Please note that if there are multiple devices connected to CuboAi/CuboAi Plus, a higher Wi-Fi speed will be required. Please ensure that there is sufficient bandwidth for the baby monitor. When the Wi-Fi bandwidth is insufficient, there is a risk that CuboAi/CuboAi Plus' transmitting of information to the app will be hindered, potentially delaying important notifications from reaching parents.
11. Who's Online & Connection History
Parents can view the login and live-feed viewing history of the admin and family sharing account members. This not only helps protect privacy but also provides an additional layer of security, allowing parents to feel more reassured and at ease when using their CuboAi baby monitors.
