Camera not found on the network

Upgrading your router or editing its Wi-Fi credentials could disrupt your ability to view your Wi-Fi camera feeds on the website or mobile app.

Reconnecting your Wi-Fi Camera Video:

Follow these steps to reconnect your cameras to the new network:

*This method applies to all Alarm.com Wi-Fi cameras with an ethernet port.

  1. To begin, disconnect power from the video device.
  2. Locate an Ethernet or Cat5 cable, then find an open port on your router, and plug the ethernet cable into the video device and the router.
  3. Reconnect power to the video device and wait for the LED to turn solid green.
  4. Next, log in to the website to configure the wireless information.
  5. Click video, then click Settings, then Wireless Network.
  6. Next, click Scan to find your Wi-Fi network and enter the password. Select the Wireless Network and Connect.
  7. Once the Wi-Fi settings are configured, disconnect power from the camera and remove the ethernet cable from both the camera and router.
  8. Move the camera to its final destination and reconnect power.
  9. The camera LED may turn red while it is connecting. It will flash green while there is a local connection only. Once the camera’s LED is solid green, attempt to view the live video feed on the website or mobile app to verify it functions properly.

If using the ethernet cable fails, try WPS Mode or AP Mode.

Next, you will need to check to see what color the LED is on the camera.

The LED is persistently red: the camera is not connected to the router by Wi-Fi or Ethernet cable

Solution - try defaulting the camera and restart the installation process
