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 add device?

1. Download the EZVIZ APP to your mobile phone from the App Store (for iOS), Google Play (for Android), or HUAWEI APP Gallery (for HUAWEI).

2. Register an EZVIZ account with your email or phone number and log in.

3. Reset your camera by pressing the reset button for about 10-15 seconds, for some cameras you will hear the voice of "Reset successfully". Then wait for about 1 minute or a few seconds, when you see the indicator light change into red-blue flashing alternately or blue light flashing fast (for some cameras, there is no light change for your reference, that's ok, you just wait for about 1 minute).

4. Connect your phone to 2.4G wifi only, then tap the "+" button on the home page to scan the QR code that is on the label of the device. You can find a label on the back or bottom of the device. (Please make sure your phone is connected to 2.4G wifi only and you give the camera permission to the EZVIZ app)

5. Then follow the instructions on the APP to connect the device to your wifi.

6. After adding the device to your account, you will be able to view your cameras.


What to do if the battery seems to drain too fast

Involved model: BM1/BC1/HB8/BC1C, etc.

Kindly note the actual battery life will vary depending on environmental factors, network stability, and the frequency of camera activities. 

Thus, to optimize the battery life, we suggest you check the following:

1. Low temperature. As the battery inside is a lithium-ion battery, if the temperature is low, the charging would be slowed, so you may need to charge more often at temperatures below 0°C. 

2. Weak Wi-Fi connection. Please ensure the network connection is good and there is no barrier or radio interference between your camera and your router causing an unstable network. You may open the EZVIZ mobile app > enter camera Settings > Network Settings and tap Wi-Fi Signal Strength to test the signal.

3. Meanwhile, you can try the below settings to reduce battery drain:

- enable Power Saving or Super Power Saving mode (only active live view can wake up the camera) in camera Settings > Working Mode or Battery.

- decrease detection sensitivity in camera Settings > Intelligent Detection.

- draw detection areas in camera Settings > Intelligent Detection.


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 to do if my EZVIZ camera cannot be charged

If you're encountering difficulties charging your EZVIZ camera, here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue:

1. Check the power source: Make sure the power outlet you're using is working properly. You can also try plugging the camera into a different outlet.

2. Check the power cable: Make sure the power cable is not damaged or frayed. You may also try using a different charging cable to see if that solves the problem.

3. Reset the camera: If there is still remaining power in the camera, you can try resetting the camera by pressing and holding the reset button for about 10 seconds. This will typically restore the camera to its default settings and may help resolve any charging issues.


I have insert Micro SD card, but app still shows “No memory card”?

If you have already installed an SD card in your camera, but the status on the EZVIZ APP shows "No memory card" or "Please insert an SD card", below are some troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue for you:

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

Step 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.

We do recommend you check the compatible list on our website.

Step 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 if the SD card can be recognized. Meanwhile, please make sure that the card has been installed correctly and is not defective or damaged.

*Before initialization, do remember to backup important files by saving or exporting them if necessary.

Step 4: If not working, 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.

Step 5: 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.

 


Why real-time videos and playback stop automatically after 5 minutes?

Please kindly note that the device is programmed to timeout every few minutes if you are streaming through our VTDU servers. You can simply tap on the "Continue" button to continue streaming. Besides, if your device supports the LAN Live View feature, you can avoid this by putting your camera and your phone or PC under the same LAN (connecting to the same network), and then going to the More page (click the profile photo on the left top corner) > Settings > LAN Live View (for mobile phone) or Devices on LAN (for PC Studio). There you could view the camera continuously.

 

However, even when you are on the same network, you should ensure that the computer you are using is connected to the router using a cable, or if you are using a mobile phone or tablet, please ensure that you have Upnp enabled on your router.
