Troubleshooting

 

Why isn’t my dimmer switch connecting to the VeSync app?

  • During the setup process, you must be on a secure 2.4GHz WiFi network.

  • Make sure the WiFi password you entered is correct.

  • Your router should be within 164 ft / 50 m visible range of the dimmer switch.

  • Your router may need to be at a higher location and away from appliances (such as microwave ovens, refrigerators, electronic devices, etc.) to avoid signal interference.

  • 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.

  • Reset the dimmer switch.

 
 

I can’t find the “Etekcity” access point during configuration.

  • Press and hold the power button on the dimmer switch for 5–15 seconds to trigger Configuration Mode. The “Etekcity” access point will appear in your list of available WiFi connections.

  • During Configuration Mode, the LED light on the dimmer switch will slowly blink. You will have 10 minutes to pair the dimmer switch with your phone.

 
 

My dimmer switch is offline.

  1. Make sure your router is connected to the internet, and your phone’s network connection is working properly.

  2. Delete the offline dimmer switch from the VeSync app. Swipe left (iOS) or tap and hold (Android), and tap Delete.

  3. Reset the dimmer switch.

  4. Once the dimmer switch has been deleted and reset, reconfigure the dimmer switch with the VeSync app.

  5. When the dimmer switch is online again, go to Device Settings, and tap Upgrade Firmware.

    Note: Power outages, internet outages, or changing WiFi routers may cause the dimmer switch to go offline.

 
 

After adding my dimmer switch to the VeSync app, why won’t the dimmer 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 dimmer switch.

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

  • • Check that your Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant is working properly.

 
 

Why isn’t my dimmer 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 dimmer switch is connected to a working network and is not offline.
