Hi, i ve recently purchased 2 EC2 outdoor cameras, but one gateway, since you can use 4 differents cams with one gateway.
I ve set up the gateway then add a camera all is fine.
When i try to add a second camera by clicking the gateway in the xiaomi home app, i open the camera i ve set up and there s no add camera button.

I ve deleted the gateway, and started again, resetting the gateway.
When i follow some instructions it says connect to the gateway wifi chung... but it requires a password that i don't have..
then finally end this operation i see the gateway icon, and when i click it i can add one camera but not 2.

Could you please tell me what i've done wrong?

Thanls

Same here... I have a a 1cam+1gateway bundle, and 3 separate cameras. Problem is that there is no "add camera" button on the gateway page once the first one is added... so I have 3 useless cameras :(
I suspect the xiaomi home app is not ready for this product :\

Thanks but what is your Mi home version?
Mine is 5.8.7 showing no "+" button
There is a monitoring and a live tab.
No way to add another camera in both menus settings either.

Well, I did not want to change the region because I was on China server and already had aqara camera&gateway, connected to motion sensors.
This is the problem. In the same app, under China, you can't add more than one imilab cameras to the imilab gateway...
Now I changed to France I can add multiple imilab cameras, but my aqara camera gateway is now useless because I can't add it, not recognized. This is so deceiving.
