Activate Focus Flex

Hudl Focus Flex is currently in Beta testing for soccer. Learn more about Focus Flex and join the waitlist.

Before your first match, you'll need to activate Focus Flex.

  1. Download the Hudl Focus app. Available in the App Store or Google Play Store on your smartphone.

  2. Turn on the camera. Press the power button on the back of the device to turn it on. A white light on the front of the camera will appear indicating the device is powered on.

  3. Log into the Hudl Focus App. Use your Hudl account email and password to log in to the Focus app.

  4. Set up the camera using the Hudl Focus App. After logging in, tap Set Up next to Focus Flex to continue.

  5. Update your camera - Make sure the camera is on—the light on the front of the camera should be solid white. Next, plug your camera into a router using an Ethernet cable or tap Connect camera to Wi-Fi Instead and begin updating. Tap Continue once the update is complete. You’ll only need to complete this update once.

    Wait until the update is complete before disconnecting the camera from ethernet. Unplugging during the update may damage the device.

  6. Turn on app notifications and location services. We’ll only notify you of important updates to your camera or recordings. Plus, you’ll need to allow the Focus app to access location on an iOS device to enable Wi-Fi connection to the device.

  7. Power off and charge your camera. After completing the set up steps, turn off your camera by pressing the power button. After a few seconds, the light on the front camera will turn off indicating the camera is powered off.

    Do not leave the camera on while in the backpack. It could overheat and become damaged.

  8. Charge your camera. To charge, plug your camera into an outlet using the power cable provided. The lights on the back of the camera will flash orange when charging.

    We recommend charging for at least four hours for a full charge. You’ll know the camera is fully charged when all five lights are orange on the back of the camera, or by checking the Camera Status tab of the Focus app when the camera is powered on.

Charge your Camera only with the included power adapter or with a third party power adapter that is compliant with applicable regulations and safety standards. Other power adaptors might not meet applicable regulations and safety standards, and charging with such power adaptors could pose a risk of death or injury. Do not use the adapter if the cord becomes frayed or damaged. Don't charge your camera in wet conditions or use its power adapter in wet conditions or in wet locations.
