Troubleshooting

 

Why can’t I connect my smart switch to my WiFi network during Setup?

  • Make sure your phone is connected to a 2.4GHz WiFi network. If you need to change your network, refer to “How do I change my WiFi network to a 2.4GHz WiFi network?”

    • Note: Smart switches currently only support 2.4GHz WiFi networks for configuration, but you can use any available network—even cellular data networks—to control the smart switch from your phone once you’ve finished setting it up.

  • Make sure your wireless network router is close enough to your smart switch. The smart switch must be within a 164 ft /50 m visible range from the router.

  • Check your WiFi network to make sure MAC address filtering is turned off.

  • Make sure you don’t have too many devices connected to your router (10 or fewer is best).

  • Close and reopen the VeSync app.

  • Clear your VeSync app cache.

  • Factory reset your smart switch. If resetting does not fix the problem, contact Customer Support.

 
 

How do I change my WiFi network to a 2.4GHz WiFi network?

  1. Make sure your router is a dual band router (most dual band routers support both 5GHz and 2.4GHz networks).

  2. On your phone settings, set your WiFi network to 2.4GHz. Most 5GHz WiFi are suffixed by “_5G.” Select the network that does not have “5G” in its name.

  3. Some routers hide the 2.4GHz WiFi network. If you have trouble finding or setting up your 2.4GHz network, please contact your router manufacturer to get support.

  4. Open your VeSync app, and it should automatically sync with your network.

 
 

Why won’t the VeSync app let me add my smart switch?

  • If someone else already set up the smart switch, ask them to share the smart switch with you so that you can control it with your VeSync account.

  • Check to make sure that your WiFi password was entered correctly.

  • Try using APN Configuration Mode.

  • Make sure your smart switch firmware is up to date.

  • Factory reset your smart switch. If resetting does not fix the problem, contact Customer Support.

 
 

After adding my smart switch to VeSync, why won’t the smart switch icon appear on the “My Home” screen of the VeSync app?

  • After adding your smart switch to the VeSync app, refresh the main menu screen (by switching between screens, or closing and reopening the app), and the smart switch should appear on the “My Home” screen.

 
 

Why won’t my smart switch respond to my app commands?

  • Make sure your WiFi network is working properly.

  • Make sure your smart switch is properly installed.

  • Make sure your wireless network router is close enough to your smart switch. The smart switch must be within a 164 ft / 50m visible range from the router.

  • Do not use a metal faceplate with your smart switch. This may cause WiFi signal interference.

  • Factory reset your smart switch. If resetting does not fix the problem, contact Customer Support.

 
 

Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant can’t find my app or can’t discover my smart switch.

  • Make sure your wireless network router is close enough to your smart switch. The smart switch must be within a 164 ft / 50 m visible range from the router.

  • Check that your Alexa/Google Home is working properly.

  • Make sure your smart switch name is simple to speak. Different accents or unusual pronunciations can make it difficult for Alexa and

    Google Home to recognize device names.

  • Try reconnecting your Alexa/Google Home.

  • Factory reset your smart switch. If resetting does not fix the problem, contact Customer Support .

 
 

Why isn’t my smart switch turning on/off as scheduled?

  • Check to make sure that the schedule is still turned on.

  • Check to make sure that your phone’s Location Services are turned on.

  • Make sure the smart switch is connected to a working network and is not offline.

 
 

I’m unable to control my smart switch, and the WiFi indicator light on the smart switch is blinking continuously.

  • Check to make sure that your WiFi network is online.

  • Make sure your wireless network router is close enough to your smart switch. The smart switch must be within a 164 ft / 50 m visible range from the router.

  • Factory reset your smart switch. If resetting does not fix the problem, contact Customer Support.
