Multiple Pipers

Follow

For enhanced security, you can install multiple Pipers on a home network to arm different floors or high traffic areas. A maximum of five Pipers sharing the same home Wi-Fi network can be linked to one account. All Pipers configured under the same account follow the security mode, notification and automation rules set in the Piper mobile app.

You can monitor live video, view environmental sensor data, and receive security notifications from each Piper.

Multi Piper Setup         

To set up additional Pipers on a network using the same account, please follow the steps below. iOS and Android devices follow separate instructions after the physical installation of your Piper.

Note: The initial piper must be set up before additional Pipers can be added. 

Follow these steps to add an additional Piper to your network:

  1. Remove Piper from its detachable stand.           
  2. Open the battery door located at the back of Piper and insert the provided AA batteries. Close the battery door and secure it with the provided screw.
  3. Connect the power cable to Piper and plug the opposite end to an electrical outlet.
  4. Re-attach the stand (or affix the optional wall mount) and position your Piper in the desired location. For optimal viewing capacity, we recommend placing Piper in a high traffic area.
  5. Press the power button on the back of Piper, located on the bottom-right. Piper’s LED light will be yellow while starting up.
