Preparation before Use

  1. A smartphone or tablet that supports Wi-Fi or a cellular network (with iOS or Android system) is required.
  2. Please make sure that there is a Wi-Fi connection and that your internet connection is stable.

Quick Setup

Download the Aqara Home app


Search for “Aqara Home” in the Apple App Store, Google Play, Xiaomi GetApps, and Huawei App Gallery, or scan the following QR code to download the Aqara Home app.

Power up and turn on the Camera Hub G2H Pro
Choose the installation location of the hub: Ensure that the hub and the routing connection are not disturbed, and avoid metal obstacles between the hub and the router or around the hub. Locate the power interface at the back of the product and plug in the MicroUSB power cord to connect the power adapter. When the Camera Hub G2H Pro is started, the status indicator will turn yellow and flash quickly. Make sure your mobile phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network in the 2.4 GHz frequency band.

Add the product to the Aqara Home app
Please open the Aqara Home app, tap “Home” and then tap “+” in the top right corner to enter the “Add Device (Accessory)” page, select “Camera Hub G2H Pro”, and add it according to the instructions in the Aqara Home app. After a successful connection, the status indicator of the device will turn blue and keep the light constant.

If the device addition fails, please confirm the following points:

  • The Wi-Fi name or password contains an unsupported special character, such as, @, #,%, -, $, etc., failing to connect to the router. Please change it to a commonly used character and try again.
  • If the camera cannot recognize the QR code generated by the mobile phone. Please make sure that the screen size of the mobile phone is not less than 4.7 inches, and make sure that you don’t use the backlight of the camera to shoot the QR code.
  • Check whether the router has enabled the Wi-Fi anti-squatter setting, which causes the camera to be unable to connect to the Internet.
  • Check whether the router has enabled AP isolation, which leads to the failure to search the camera on the mobile phone in the LAN. * Make sure the camera is connected to the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network.

Add Accessory

After the Camera Hub G2H Pro is added successfully, please open the Aqara Home app and refer to the user manual of the accessory to add.

Connect to Apple HomeKit

  • “Failed to add accessory”. Due to multiple adding failures, the error information of the iOS cache cannot be removed. Please restart the iOS device and reset the camera;
  • “Accessory already added”. After restarting the iOS device and resetting the camera, you can manually enter the HomeKit setup code and add it again;
