Troubleshooting Common Issues

If you’re experiencing issues with your Geeni camera, don’t worry! There are a few common troubleshooting steps you can take to resolve the problem. The first step is to check the Wi-Fi signal strength. Make sure that your camera is within range of your Wi-Fi router and that there are no obstructions or interference that could weaken the signal.

Next, verify that you’re using the correct login credentials. Double-check your username and password to ensure they are entered correctly. If you’ve recently changed your Wi-Fi network or password, make sure to update the settings in the Geeni app to match.

If the issue persists, try restarting the camera. Simply unplug it from the power source, wait for a few seconds, and then plug it back in. This can often resolve temporary glitches or connectivity issues.

Another troubleshooting step is to update the camera’s firmware. Check the Geeni app or website for any available firmware updates. Updating the firmware can fix bugs, improve performance, and enhance security.

If none of these steps resolve the issue, don’t hesitate to reach out to Geeni support for further assistance. They have a team of knowledgeable experts who can help troubleshoot specific issues or provide additional guidance.

Remember, resetting the camera should be a last resort and should only be done if other troubleshooting steps fail.
