Connecting Eufy Doorbell to Your Wi-Fi Network?

If your Doorbell has a Wi-Fi Chime or a Homebase, you need to connect that to the internet. You can connect Eufy wired doorbell directly to the internet. I will cover all the processes.

HomeBase & Homebase 2

Before you do anything about the Wi-Fi, you need to physically setup the Eufy HomeBase first. So let’s see how you can accomplish that and connect it to the Wi-Fi.

  • Plug in the power cable (rounded head) into the hub. Plug in the other end to a power outlet.
  • Plug in the Ethernet cable to the proper port of the hub. The other end of the ethernet cable goes into your router’s LAN port.
  • Power up the HomeBase. Notice if it’s blinking red (may defer from model to model).
  • Download the Eufy security mobile app. Download from the Apple apps store
  • Press “Add Device”.
  • Choose “HomeBase Station”(the version you own).
  • You will be asked to physically connect the HomeBase which I’ve already done. Click “Next”.
  • You will require connecting your phone to the same Wi-Fi router the HomeBase is connected to. So do that. Press “Next”.
  • You will have to wait for 1 minute for the HomeBase’s LED to turn from red to blue.
  • When the light turns blue, you will hear a voice telling you to follow the instructions on the app for setting up.
  • Use your phone to scan the QR code on your HomeBase. It’s at the bottom.
  • Your HomeBase will receive a pairing request. Press the “Sync Button” on the back of the HomeBase. It will be added successfully.

Wi-Fi Chime

If you have the Doorbell version that comes with a Wi-Fi Chime, follow these steps:

  • Download and log into your Eufy Security app.
  • Plug the WiFi chime into a power outlet. Extend the antennas.
  • Tap “Add Device” on the app and add the Wi-Fi Doorbell chime.
  • Choose the Wi-Fi network of your desire. Enter the password and tap “Connect”.
  • Wait for the light on the chime to become blue.
  • Press “Chime lights up”.
  • Locate the Sync button. Hold for 2 seconds until the light starts flashing and you hear a chime noise.
  • Press “Connect” again.
  • Finally, tap “Done”.

How To Fix Eufy Doorbell Failed to Connect To Wi-Fi During First Setup

Your Eufy Doorbell may not be able to connect to the Wi-Fi on the very first try. There is nothing to worry about because you can follow some troubleshooting steps to get it fixed.

Step #1: Find out your Wi-Fi network’s frequency

You must have a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi connection. Eufy and many other security cams will NOT work on a 5 GHz Wi-Fi network.

Here’s a helpful guide so that you can know whether you are using 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz Wi-Fi.

Step #2: Connect the doorbell to your phone’s hotspot

This is so you can test if the problem is with your Wi-Fi or the Eufy app or Doorbell.

Turn on your mobile hotspot. Connect it to your Eufy Doorbell. If the connection is successful, this means the problem lies within your router or Wi-Fi network. You need to deal with that.

Step #3: Troubleshoot your router/Wi-Fi

The final step is to find and fix any problem your router or Wi-Fi is causing.

  • Make sure your Wi-Fi network uses WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK encryption. Eufy Doorbell works on these two encryptions.
  • Reboot the router. A quick reboot can fix many issues with your Wi-Fi.
  • Bring the router closer to the doorbell. According to Eufy, 30 ft or less is an ideal distance.

If nothing works, you should talk to Eufy’s customer support immediately. They will guide you to sort things out.
