After some research, I discovered that there are several common issues that can prevent your Eufy security camera from connecting to Wi-Fi.

In this article, I will discuss these issues as well as how you can fix them so you can finally enjoy using your camera.

Let’s get started!

How to Fix Eufy Camera Not Connecting to Wi-Fi 

You should try these solutions; they can fix your camera’s network connection problems.

1. Move Router Closer

While you are facing an issue with your Eufy cam that it isn’t connecting to the Wi-Fi, you should ensure the camera is placed within the range of your router. 

If you are connecting it from a huge distance, it’s common to fail in connecting the network. 

So, you should take your camera inside the house within range of your router. If you are not able to remove the camera, you can move the router closer to your eufy camera. 

And then, try to connect it to your home Wi-Fi network to check if the problem is fixed. If you are still facing this problem, you should keep reading the solutions below. 

2. Ensure Phone Connected to the Router

The most common but important thing you should consider is that your router and camera are switched on. 

Also, you should ensure the mobile phone that you are using to set up the camera is connected to your Wi-Fi network. 

3. Change Router Settings

A few Eufy products are incompatible with the 5Ghz network, which can cause your camera to not connect to the Wi-Fi connection. 

So, if you have a router with dual-band frequencies, check you’ve only selected 2.4 GHz for the camera. If so, try switching between the 2.4 and 5 GHz network frequencies. 

Once you have turned your router setting to the compatible frequency, begin to connect again with your network connection. 

4. Reset the Camera

Usually, this problem is common due to the device software glitches. In case, you should perform a factory reset for your camera. 

Factory resetting is a method to wipe all kind of information or data from your device and removes software bugs or glitch that causes issues. 

However, before resetting the camera, you should remember to back up your data from the camera because after resetting, it cannot be accessed. 

Here are steps on how you can reset the eufy camera: 

1. Plug the camera into the power outlet and ensure it is switched on. 

2. Press and hold the reset button from its back for about 10-15 seconds. 

3. Once you hear a beep and a flashing blue status light, release the button. 

4. Wait a few seconds until the reset is finished successfully. 

5. Power Cycle Router

So, here is how you can power cycle your Wi-Fi router: 

1. Locate the power adapter of the router. 

2. Unplug it from the power outlet. 

3. Wait about a minute. 

4. Plug it back into the outlet and switch the router on. 

6. Factory Reset Router

If still, your eufy camera isn’t connecting to the Wi-Fi connection, you should factory reset your Wi-Fi router. 

Because these issues might be due to router problems or its software glitches. Factory resetting will remove all kinds of bugs or glitches from the device. 

After resetting, your router will turn back to its factory default settings, and you’ll need to customize all settings again and connect to the devices. 

Here is how to reset the Wi-Fi router: 

1. Ensure the router is switched on. 

2. Locate the reset button at the back of your router and long-press it with a paperclip or other similar tool for about 15 seconds.
