Hi folks,

I’m sorry for the trouble adding your camera here. No worries, we’ll sort this out — a few questions: how far is your camera from the router? Do you have an Android phone or iPhone? What Wi-Fi frequency band do you try to connect to (2.4 GHz or 5 GHz)? Are there other devices connected to the same Wi-Fi where the camera is connected to? Also, were there any changes to your WiFi network?

Give these steps a try:

  1. Close all the apps running in the background of your phone, reopen the Google Home app then try pairing your camera again.
  2. Bring your phone closer to the camera within 10 to 12 inches during pairing setup.
  3. Restart your router or modem, unplug it from the power outlet, wait for 1 to 2 minutes then plug it back in.
  4. Factory reset your camera, when the light pulses blue it means it’s ready to be paired to your Google Home app. Try the pairing setup again.

Let me know how it goes.
