Silhouette CAMEO 4 Bluetooth Set Up Tutorial

Setting up Bluetooth on Silhouette CAMEO 4 is a pretty fast and painless process and it will allow you to cut wirelessly with your CAMEO 4.

This CAMEO 4 Bluetooth tutorial will walk you through the set up process step by step.

Start by powering up and turning on your CAMEO 4.

On the touch panel, press the white Bluetooth button so it turns blue. This enables Bluetooth on the cutting machine.


Next you must get your computer to recognize that you have a new Bluetooth device. This process will be slightly different on each computer depending on if you're using a MAC or PC and on the operating system.

Ensure Bluetooth is enabled on your computer.


On a MAC, open the System Preferences and click the Bluetooth Icon.

When the Devices box opens, make sure you have Bluetooth “On” on your computer. Then you should see your Silhouette CAMEO 4 listed – but still not connected.

Click “Pair” or “Connect”.


Your computer should now sync to the CAMEO 4 to recognize the Bluetooth connection. You can confirm this has worked correctly when you see “Connected” under the device name.

Open Silhouette Studio and from the “SEND” panel click the machine icon at the bottom. A list of available Silhouette machines will appear. The CAMEO 4 will be listed with the “Bluetooth” icon with a status of “Available.”

The first time you add the Bluetooth machine, and at certain times later, you will get a message that a Firmware Update is available. Before running the firmware update, connect the machine to the computer via the USB cord and then click “Update Now.”

It should take about 10-15 minutes for the firmware update to complete.

When it does, you'll hear the CAMEO 4 re-set and the firmware message in the Send panel will disappear. The status of the Bluetooth machine will change to Ready.

  1. I am trying to do the firmware update but its not working. I have it connected with the included ubs cable and Silhouette Studio still doesn't recognize it.

    1. I had the same problem that the Cameo 4 was not recognized through USB. Turned out that the USB connector on the Cameo 4 is up side down, so make sure to insert the cable correctly in the Cameo 4 (with the USB logo facing downwards).

      Still one issue remaining: I don't have a bluetooth icon on my Cameo 4 anymore so can't connect through bluetooth.
