Lorex Ping 2 App: Connecting to your LNC camera using Local Search

The Lorex Ping 2 app can be used to connect to your LNC Series cameras on a Local Area Network (LAN) using Local Search. Use Local Search if your smartphone or tablet has lost connection with an LNC camera, and you do not have the ability to manually enter the device ID or scan the QR code of your camera.


  • Ensure that your LNC camera is connected to your router using an Ethernet cable.

To connect the camera using Local Search:

  1. Launch the Lorex Ping 2 app on your smartphone or tablet.

  2. On the Camera List screen, tap the Add Camera icon (Lorex Ping 2 app: Add Camera).

  3. Select Local Search. The Lorex Ping 2 scans for cameras connected to your local network. If your camera IP does not appear, tap search again.
