👉 We hope you are viewing this page because you are considering buying an AngelBox. The AngelBox is a small powerful device for connecting all your security cameras to the cloud easily, securely and reliably. More details can be found at www.angelcam.com/angelbox.

💡 While the AngelBox is compatible with most network video-enabled devices on the market, and we offer 100% money back guarantee, we encourage you to do this compatibility test before your purchase.

The AngelBox Compatibility Tester is a desktop app with the same auto-discovery feature as the real AngelBox so you will know if the AngelBox will work for you before you buy.

The application is available for Windows, Linux and OS X.

Windows version

The Windows version is compatible with Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. Please, follow the installation instructions below.


Windows version of the AngelBox Compatibility Tester requires installation of a third party library called Npcap. The library is used for network scanning and you can download it for free here. Simply download the Npcap installer:

and proceed with installation. When asked about installation options, select only the one saying "Install Npcap in WinPcap API-compatible Mode":

Please note that if you used other tools with network-scanning capabilities before (e.g. Wireshark) you might have also installed a library called Win10Pcap. Make sure that this library is not installed in your system.

Once you have installed Npcap, you can proceed with installation of the AngelBox Compatibility Tester. It is possible that you will have to disable your anti-virus tools to install and use the compatibility tester.

Mac OS version

The package has been tested with Mac OS Mojave and Catalina. Other version might work as well.

Linux version

Currently, there are installation packages for two major Linux distributions - Ubuntu and Fedora. You should always use the corresponding version of your distribution. Other versions are not guaranteed to work.



While the AngelBox Compatibility tester will help you find out if the AngelBox works with your camera setup, it isn't designed for the permanent connection.
