Offline

I have downloaded the Fing Android app and have 3 WiFi cameras: 1is online and 2 are offline however, I can view live video on all 3 cameras from my phone and desktop.

What does the Fing app offline actually represent?

What is the difference between the Fing Android app and Fingbox?

    Fing Adroid is an App that functions on its own and has the ability to scan your network 'on demand', and give you information.
    The FingBOX is a device that is placed in your network and guards the network for new/unwanted devices, devices up/down and more. It does dat 24/7 and warns you is something is suspicious or wrong. For extensive information about The Box, see https://www.fing.com/products/fingbox

    Now the reason you can only see 1 camera can be versatile, especially us not knowing what the brand/type of the camera is.
    Some camera's are set to 'standby' as long as they don;t see changes, others do not. Are you able to ping the 'offline' devices, and what do the ping results tell you?

    Ping is a piece of code that allows you to check if a specific IP-address is reachable.
    Basically you send a signal to the IP address and it answers back if the protocol (ICMP) is allowed by the network admin or the host admin. If it is, the machine sends back a reply.
    The time between The question and the answer is calculated and shown. The shorter the reply-time, the better the connection is.
