Using Your Own Foscam Security Camera With Your Lift Mate

Use your existing Foscam cameras

If your existing Foscam camera is one of the supported models, you can use it with the Lift Mate app by applying a camera activation code in the Lift Mate app.  

Compatible models:

  • Foscam S41

If your model is not listed above, it may still be compatible with the Lift Mate app. Please get in touch with us at to inquire if your model is compatible or to purchase an activation code.

Entering the activation code

Make sure your camera is reset, then go settings menu / camera option in the app.

Scan the QR code on your camera that contains the device identifier. 

If you haven't purchased the camera through the Lift Mate website or a Lift Mate dealer, the app will tell you that an "Activation code is needed". Get your activation code and press the "Enter camera activation code" button in the "Activation code is needed" screen and enter the code. Upon successful activation the app will take you back to the screen where you are required to scan the QR code with the device identifier again. 

From this point you can follow our  outdoor camera setup guide with the next steps.

Cameras bought on our store are pre-activated.
