Bluram Security Camera Not Connecting to Wi-Fi

One of the most common connection issues with Bluram security cameras is not connecting to Wi-Fi. This can happen due to various reasons, such as weak signal strength, incorrect router settings, outdated firmware, or interference from other devices. Here are some steps you can take to fix this issue:

  1. The first thing you should do is check the Wi-Fi signal strength and router settings.

Bluram Security Camera Not Connecting to Google Home

Here are some tips for troubleshooting to try if your Blurams security camera connectivity with Google Home:

  1. Ensure your Bluram camera and Google Home device are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. If they are both on different networks, your device will have a hard time communicating with each other.
  2. Check that you have the latest firmware installed on your Blurams camera. Old firmware can prevent connectivity. Update firmware in the Blurams app if needed. Check if your Google Home app needs an update or reinstall the app completely. This can fix bugs.
  3. Reboot both the camera and Google Home device. Power them off completely for 30 seconds before powering back on. This can clear any software glitches.
  4. Try unlinking the camera from the Google Home app, resetting it to factory defaults using the reset button, and going through setup again from scratch. 
  5. Make sure UPnP is enabled on your router. Bluram cameras rely on UPnP for connectivity. Check your router settings. Also, ensure that if your router is dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz), you’re connecting to 2.4GHz, as the camera only connects to 2.4GHz networks. Try turning off 5GHz temporarily.
