Would not connect.
on June 10, 2018
Just like a few others on here have posted, I could not get this thing to connect to anything, in anyway. It is funny to note, that even thou it is the exact same app, my phone & tablet had very different things the app was having me do for each.
I went thru all the steps and every type of way to connect: Creating a barcode and having the cam scan it. Creating a sound and playing it to the camera's mic. Pushing the credentials to the cam (although it never tells you if it is using NFC, Bluetooth, WiFi Direct?). Either way, my phone and tablet support all those methods and following the instructions of keeping it within 2" (sounds like NFC to me) it did not work. And finally connecting to the cam thru ad-hoc, which following the directions, the cam never does.
I have no idea why this camera seem to work for a few people that have posted a good review for it. At least some of them do appear to be regular amazon users. Hard to believe that EZVIZ would have this high of a defect ratio - mine was brand new, I broke the seal. IDK. All I know is I have spent over a hour screwing with this and it has pissed me off. And I am a very tech savy person, so something is wrong with the device or their BS setup. I'm guessing it is their setup of how to do things.
And before Carl the copy & paste spammer replies with "change your 2.4GHz setup to a slower speed". You don't change speeds, you change connection standards. And I did go so far as to setup a new SSID just for it, on the old 802.11g standard. Still nada!
