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 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.
