If you're using a cellular connection try moving to an area with a better signal, or switch to your Wi-Fi network. If your Wi-Fi signal is also weak, go to an area where the signal is stronger.

Your camera's Wi-Fi connection may be weak in the spot where your camera is mounted. Try moving your router closer to your camera or get a network range extender.
