Upgraded firmware last night (I think). Camera working fine. App was good. All was well.
This morning I powered down my UPS to change the battery.
Bringing UPS back on line, APP said the camera was powered off.
I bypassed the UPS and plugged directly into a known good outlet. APP Still said camera is powered off.
Deleted the camera from the app and tried to reconnect. After “QR Code Scanned” the voice says “Cannot connect to local network”.
An hour with chat proved fruitless. They asked me to wait for a second level tech to email me. Nothing yet.
I have tried to manually install the most recent firmware and the one before that one. I did each on twice.
This is the proc I used:
A: went to the files page and downloaded demo_wcv3_184.108.40.20659.bin.zip
B: extracted it to the root of a clean SD card The files were a folder: __MACOSX and a file demo_wcv3.bin.
C. Unplugged the v3 and installed the SD card
D. Held the reset button down and plugged the camera in. Holding the reset button for about 8 seconds.
E. The status lights flash red/blue alternately.
F: If I keep holding it, it will simply say “ready to connect”.
