FLIR FX Modes: Action mode

The FLIR FX camera will automatically go into Action mode while not connected to a base (indoor stand / outdoor housing). Action mode is also active when using the Sports case or Dash mount with WiFi enabled.
In Action mode, the camera records in 1080p directly to the microSD card (included).

Action mode is indicated by the action mode text visible in the smartphone version of the FLIR FX app below the live stream.
In tablets Action mode is indicated in the Recording Triggers Menu. The option to toggle motion recordings will be disabled, but the option to toggle audio triggers will still be active, as seen below.

If the camera is powered on before being connected to the indoor stand, outdoor housing, or dash mount, the camera will automatically enter Action mode and disable WiFi. After connecting the camera to the base, WiFi can be turned back on using the WiFi button (WiFi button) or the Power button (FLIR FX Camera: Power Button).

RECOMMENDATION: If WiFi turns off when already using the indoor stand, outdoor housing, or Dash mount, we recommend first reseating the camera.

To turn on WiFi using the WiFi button (all camera configurations including Sports case and Dash mount):

  1. With the camera turned on and mounted to the base, press and hold the WiFi button (WiFi button) on the camera for 5 seconds. The camera will beep and turn the WiFi on.
  2. After a few seconds, the back of the camera will display a solid amber Direct mode LED (direct mode led), or a blinking green Cloud mode LED (cloud mode led).
  3. Press the WiFi button (WiFi button) for 1 second to switch between modes as needed.

If the camera beeps and turns the WiFi off again, this indicates low battery.

To turn on WiFi using the Power button (indoor stand or outdoor housing only):

  2. Connect the camera to the indoor stand or outdoor base to power on the camera automatically.
    • If the camera does not power on automatically, reseat the camera in the base and try again.
    • If the camera does not turn on after reseating, press the Power button on the camera for 1 second to turn it on.
