If your Doorbell Camera recently stopped working and the LED is showing an Orange rapid double flash, your Doorbell Camera is having trouble connecting to your Wi-Fi network.
There are a few reasons that your Doorbell Camera may have lost Wi-Fi connectivity:
Your Wi-Fi network is not working. This could be caused by a loss of Internet connection from your Internet Service Provider or a problem with your Wi-Fi router. Check that you have an Internet connection and a functioning Wi-Fi router before proceeding.
Your Wi-Fi router is too far away from the Doorbell Camera. Try moving the router closer to the Doorbell Camera.
You recently made changes to your Wi-Fi network’s name or password (possibly including replacing your router). If so, follow the instructions below to reconnect your Doorbell Camera to your Wi-Fi network.
Step-By-Step Syncing Instructions
1. Download the Latest Version of the Alarm.com Customer App
It is important to check that you are using a supported version of the Alarm.com mobile app on a supported mobile device. The Alarm.com Doorbell Cameras are supported on both the Android and Apple iOS mobile platforms.
By default the doorbell camera installation process will enable a doorbell call push notification.
Push notifications help you take full advantage of your Doorbell Camera. Enabling push notifications makes it easier for you to know when a visitor is at the door.
Note: push notifications can be updated after completing installation from the main Notifications tab.
11. Enable Recording Schedules
By default the Doorbell Camera installation process will enable doorbell push button recordings.
Motion-based recordings can be enabled at this time if desired.
