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:

If not, please turn off the device and turn it on again, this should solve the problem.

What should I do if I received alarm notifications but no notification sound?

Regarding this, please try the followings and see whether the issue would be resolved:

1. Make sure the volume of your phone itself is turned up and on the system settings of your phone, the notification sound of the EZVIZ app is allowed.

2. Make sure the Message Notification Tone on the EZVIZ app (Library page > Tap the second button on the top right corner > Push Notification Settings > Notification Sound) is not muted.

3. Make sure your phone is not in Do Not Disturb or Focus mode or Silent mode.

4. Turn off battery optimization as battery saver mode may limit some activities to conserve battery life and thus causing this issue.

What if my router is a dual-band or Tri-band router supporting 2.4GHz, 5GHz or AC mode simultaneously

For optimal setup experience, we strongly recommend that you use 2 different SSIDs for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.

My mobile phone cannot play the live video, but other phones can play, how can this problem be resolved?

3. You can try to view the live video using the EZVIZ Studio. If the device cannot be viewed, try rebooting the device.

4. If you get the prompt "Device is busy, please try again or restart the device.", it usually indicates that the camera has reached the maximum connection at the same time.

If this is not the case, please power off the device and power it up again, then this issue should be resolved.

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.
