Why aren’t my light switches connecting to the VeSync app?
During the setup process, you must be connected to a secure 2.4GHz WiFi network.
Make sure the WiFi password you entered is correct.
Try moving your router closer to your smart switch (164 ft / 50 m visible range is best).
Make sure you don’t have too many devices connected to your router. Your router may have a limit of connected devices which can be turned off in your router settings.
Close and reopen the VeSync app.
Clear your VeSync app cache.
Reset your smart outlet.
How do I change my WiFi network to a 2.4GHz WiFi network?
Most dual-band routers support both 2.4G and 5G networks. Select the WiFi name that does not end in “_5G”.
If your phone is attempting to connect to the 5G network, try “forgetting” or temporarily disabling the 5G network.
If you are unsure, or if the 2.4G and 5G networks do not have separate names, please contact your internet service provider.
I can’t find the “Etekcity” access point during configuration.
Press and hold the power button on the light switch for 5 seconds to trigger Configuration Mode. The “Etekcity” access point will appear in your list of available WiFi connections.
During Configuration Mode, the WiFi Indicator will slowly blink white (1 blink per second). You will have 10 minutes to pair the light switch with your phone.
My light switch is offline.
Make sure your router is connected to the internet, and your phone’s network connection is working properly.
Delete the offline light switch from the VeSync app. Swipe left (iOS) or tap and hold (Android), and tap Delete.
Reset the light switch by pressing and holding the power button for more than 15 seconds. The WiFi Indicator will blink rapidly then turn a solid white.
Once the light switch has been deleted and reset, reconfigure your light switch with the VeSync app.
When the light switch is online again, go to Device Settings, and tap Upgrade Firmware.
Note: Power outages, internet outages, or changing WiFi routers may cause your light switch to go offline.
After adding my smart light switch to the VeSync app, why won’t the smart light switch icon appear on the My Home screen?
Refresh the VeSync menu by swiping down on the screen.
Close and reopen the VeSync app.
Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant can’t find my app or can’t discover my light switch.
Make sure your wireless network router is close enough to your smart light switch. The smart light switch must be within a 164 ft / 50 m visible range from the router.
Check that your Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant is working properly.
Why isn’t my light switch turning on/off as scheduled?
Make sure that the schedule is still turned on.
Make sure that your phone’s Location Services are turned on.
Make sure the smart light switch is connected to a working network and is not offline.
