What to do if the SD card cannot be initialized?

If you encounter difficulties when trying to initialize the SD card via the EZVIZ APP, below are some troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue for you:

1. Ensure both the firmware of your camera and EZVIZ APP are running on the latest version.

2. Ensure the SD card is class 10 or rated at UHS-1. The file format of the SD card should be FAT32 for capacities below 64GB and exFAT for capacities of 64GB and above. Click Here to view partial test results of SD card compatibility.

3. Power off your camera, remove and reinsert the SD card, power the camera on and then initialize the card again on the EZVIZ APP.

4. To further rule out the SD card issue, you may try to test with a different SD card or install the card in question on another EZVIZ device. 

5. Try to factory reset your camera by holding the Reset button. This will turn the device to the default factory settings and might help resolve minor issues.

How to deal with the system message “Device is offline”?

1. Please check the status of the indicator light first:

- If it is solid blue or flashing blue slowly, please refresh the home page on the EZVIZ APP to check whether the camera becomes online or not.

- If the indicator light is flashing red slowly, you can try the following two methods:

- Reset the device by pressing the reset button for a few seconds.

- Wait for a while, make sure the indicator light turns to flash blue quickly and tap Next.

What should I do if the app says "Unable to join network EZVIZ_SN" during the configuration process

If you see "Unable to join network EZVIZ_SN" (the SN of your EZVIZ camera) or if you cannot connect to the Device AP during network configuration, we suggest you reset your camera by pressing the reset button for 4-5 seconds and restart the setup procedure.


Before doing so, please make sure that

1. Make sure that you have turned off the cellular data on your phone.

2. Make sure your device is in configuration mode. You can easily tell if the camera is ready by checking if the indicator light flashes blue quickly.

3. When configuring the network, make sure that your EZVIZ device is close to your Wi-Fi router. We recommend that you keep the distance less than 1.5 meters.


If the problem persists, please try the following method:

1. If you are using iPhone 15 Pro or Pro Max, please try with a different phone model;

2. Please check if you can find a Wi-Fi starting with EZVIZ_XXXXXX (the SN of your EZVIZ camera) in the Wi-Fi list of your phone;

3. If yes, please check if you can connect it manually. The password for the device Wi-Fi should be "EZVIZ_verification code" (a 6-digit capital letter code that you can find on the device label);

4. After the connection, go back to the EZVIZ app to complete the network configuration.

What should I do if the app says "Incorrect Device Wi-Fi Password" during the configuration process

If you see the "Incorrect device Wi-Fi password" prompt when you connect to the device Wi-Fi during network setup, please follow these steps to see if they help:

1. go to your phone settings and find Wi-Fi settings.

2. locate the device Wi-Fi which is named EZVIZ_SN (the SN of your camera, for example, EZVIZ_D12345678).

3. forget or delete the device Wi-Fi from your Wi-iFi list and then reconnect it by manually inputting the password, which is EZVIZ_verification code (for example, if the 6 capital letters verification code on the device label is ABCDEF, the password should be EZVIZ_ABCDEF).

4. after connection, go back to the EZVIZ app to retry.

What is Image Encryption Password? How to decryt image or video?

The encryption password is the verification code of the camera by default which is located on the white sticker of your camera or for verified terminals, you may find it in camera settings > About/Device information > Device QR Code > Verification Code.

If you have forgotten your image encryption password, you can also decrypt images or videos via email or SMS. In the decryption pop-up, you will find it below the input field.

Alternatively, you can reset your camera by pressing the Reset button and the password will be reset to the original device verification code.

What should I do if my camera goes offline frequently?

If your camera goes offline frequently, below are some troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue for you:

Step 1: Ensure both the firmware and EZVIZ app are running on the latest version.

Step 2: Ensure that your Wi-Fi network signal is good. You can check the signal by connecting your phone to the same WiFi your camera connects to, entering More page > Settings > Device Network Tools > Check WiFi signal.

Step 3: If not good, you can try to move the camera closer to your router, avoid obstacles and interference such as wall, elevator, microwave, washing machines, and Bluetooth devices. 

Step 4: If your WiFi router has an adjustable antenna, try pointing it in various directions.

Step 5: Try to change the Wi-Fi channel to a less crowded one.

Step 6: If possible, disconnect some devices you seldom use from your router.

Step 7: If your camera supports Ethernet cable, you can also try to connect it using a cable.

Step 8: If you have two EZVIZ devices and the other one is working fine, you can also try to switch the locations to further determine the issue.

What should I do if I got “The device has been added” message when adding device to account?

When this message pops up, it means that the device has already been connected to an existing EZVIZ account. To add it to a new account, you need to remove the device from the previous account since a device can only be bound to one account. For different situations, please refer to the guide below:

1) If you received the device from other people, please contact the previous owner and ask them to remove the device from their account for you. At EZVIZ, we respect the user’s ownership of their devices and data.

2) If this is a brand-new product, please return it to the place where it is purchased and explain the problem that you encountered.

3) If you’ve forgotten the login info to your old account, please try as many times as you can. We strongly encourage that you update the email or phone number before changing a service provider. We also recommend that you keep your password strong and safe to ensure the normal usage of your device.

How to solve Wi-Fi configure failed issue?

Please check the following settings below:

1) Check the frequency band on your router to ensure that it allows 2.4 GHz network mode transmission if your device supports 2.4 GHz only..

2) Ensure that your mobile phone is on the WiFi and ensure that the WiFi network is active and functional

3) Check the network condition:

    •Make sure your network has no firewall and no other limit.

    •Ensure the router can distribute IP address to your device or disable the static IP setting (DHCP is enabled by default on all EZVIZ devices).

4) Reset your camera; ensure that your device is in ready mode or Wi-Fi configuration mode > then use the EZVIZ mobile app for device Wi-Fi configuration.
