Doorbell FAQ

Connection Issues

A. Cant Connect

This device requires a 2.4 GHz network frequency. (This is not your internet speed). Please use only this network to connect your device.
If you have previously connected to the 5GHZ network, please have your phone forget this network then reset your Energizer device and reconnect your phone to the 2.4ghz network.
If you only have one network name available, please contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to have your network broken down into two network IDs. (2.4GHZ and 5GHZ). Some customers are required to activate their 2.4ghz guest account depending on your ISP firewall settings. Please check with your ISP for this option and firewall information. Many users on AT&T routers have this issue, please contact your ISP and they will assit you. If the 2.4ghz network is already available, please have your phone forget the 5ghz network first, then only reconnect to the 2.4ghz network. Once this is completed please reset your router. To do this, unplug the power supply for 30 seconds and then plug the power supply back in. Wait 2 minutes before adding your device.
For Camera Devices OnlyIf the connection fails, please try QR mode located on the main screen. From the Add device list click camera, then press QR mode which will generate a QR code( QR mode is located at the top right of the screen). Please follow the on-screen instructions. We recommend placing your phone’s screen directly in front of the camera lens and slowly move your phone away until you hear a confirmation beep.

B. Failed to Establish

“Failed to establish an encrypted channel” is another way of saying that your phone is unable to connect. Many variables can affect the connection, such as the distance between your router and the wall interior.
If the signal strength on the live stream screen, is above 50 percent you still have a connection to your WIFI. If the signal strength is lower than 50%, you may have actually lost connection to your router. Please check your router for connectivity. Reset your router if needed. If the problem persists, please contact your ISP. If you have a strong signal strength (above 70%) this may be a bandwidth or data streaming issue. Please try accessing your camera using cellular data (disconnect from your WIFI). If this fails you may have to contact your cellular company to determine the proper data plan**. You may also try switching the network frequency if you have a number of devices connected to your 2.4 ghz network. Please try to connect your phone to the 5.0ghz network, then attempt to access your playback options.
**Unlimited does not necessarily mean unlimited at full speed. Unlimited data plans can come with restrictions. Some data plans are truly unlimited and only the speed is throttled.

C. Says Offline

Please check the hardwire connection at the device to ensure there is a good connection. Power loss or poor connection will also cause an offline status.
Please try resetting your router. To do this, please unplug the power supply for 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Resetting your router will sometimes provide better connectivity. The device should be connected to a 2.4 GHz network. Once connected to the network, you can then connect to your 5.0 GHz network or any other network account to view your device.
Try freeing up some space on your 2.4ghz network by moving some devices to a 5.0ghz connection. If you’re still experiencing connectivity issues, such as the device going offline and online, please contact your ISP provider for tips on strengthening your connection and to determine if there is a device limit on your router. You may also want to consider activating your 2.4ghz guest account to isolate your Energizer Connect devices.
