Unplug, and plug back in? Power cycle should work, shouldn’t need to re setup.

Probably not what you want to hear, but buy a smart plug. I have a Kasa TP-Link connected to my some of my cams. They’re pretty reliable when it comes to reconnecting after outages.

Did that. Camera recycled but none of the cameras would not reconnect to router.

Have you tried leaving the cameras in the “on” state… And then re-boot the network modem (DSL / Cable modem box)?

If I unplugged cam…waiting 1 minute and plugged back in…resetting the camera
( camera did not reconnect to WiFi ) …how would a smart plug help ?

You said, “when I’m away”, so, the only option if they dont reconnect “if you’re away” is to try a power cycle. You never said in the OP that you already tried to disconnect power.

Tried unplugging power to router with cameras on…
Waited 5 mins and replugged router…cameras reconnected no problem

Will also get some smart plugs and keep my fingers crossed …

But definitely leave with cameras on when going away.:crossed_fingers::crossed_fingers:
