Several apps that will do that for you depending on whether you're using an iPhone or Android, just do a search

Metadata Error:Please check if you inadvertently pasted driver code into apps code window on line 21

Can you paste a screen shot of the apps code from about line 10

Ah,,, Just realized what the message is saying. You need to paste that code under the Drivers Code section instead of the Apps Code section.

If your router supports it, you could set up a static IP address for the phone.

Just in case you weren't already aware... Most new versions of iOS and Android will generate random MAC addresses for their WiFi radios. This is to help with user privacy to prevent a phone from being easily tracked based on its static MAC address. Both iOS and Android allow this feature to be disabled. In order for your router to consistently hand out the same IP address via DHCP each time your phone connects, this 'feature' must be disabled on each phone.

Thank you! I didn’t notice this new setting, and forgot about that announcement. Explains why my arrival rule stopped working. :+1:t2:

My Amcrest doorbells do this too. It is the most infuriating thing I've ever experienced. Phone's can shut this random crap off but my cameras can't and now my home automation system only has cameras about 10% of the time. I'd like to have the guy that implemented that fired... from a canon...into a wall.

It makes sense for a mobile phone that can connect to many different wifi networks, as it’s intended to prevent tracking by advertisers etc. based on the device’s MAC address.

I’m not sure why that would be helpful for a stationary device thats installed in your home like a camera.
