What is the quality of the video on Hive View and Hive View Outdoor?

Hive View and Hive View Outdoor offer a choice of 720p or 1080p HD video. The cameras are also always optimising the livestream by auto adjusting the bit rate to your available bandwidth. 

The cameras will be set to livestream and record video at 720p resolution as default to ensure you receive the best possible viewing experience for your network connection.

You can select an appropriate resolution for your network environment to watch video seamlessly. This will be dependent on your internet speed. Note that viewing over a mobile network will count towards the data charges from the mobile operator.

To change your video resolution:
1. Head to your Hive app and log-in if needed using your username and password
2. Select the camera you wish to view from the dashboard
3. Select the “Settings” icon and go to the “Video” section
4. Change between "720p" and "1080p"
5. Select "Save" if needed
