following troubleshooting options:
Verify your Alarm.com Smart Chime

is connected to your router’s
Wi-Fi network
Check your Alarm.com

Smart Chime’s Router LED:
Router LED is off
If the LED is not illuminated, the
connection to the router has been lost.
Check your router to ensure that it is
on. Next, try moving your Alarm.com
Smart Chime closer to the router to
confirm it is in range. If the connection
is not re-established, try connecting
your device to your Wi-Fi network
using WPS mode. To reconnect via AP
mode, follow the instructions listed in
the
AP Mode
section.







Router LED is blinking
If the Router LED is blinking, there is a
local connection to the router but no
internet connection. If you cannot
access the Internet using your router,

please contact your Internet Service
Provider to restore Internet access.
Verify the Devices LED
If your devices are connected to the

Alarm.com Smart Chime, the Devices
LED will be solid. If you have multiple
devices that are connected to the
Alarm.com Smart Chime, you can view
the currently connected devices on the
Alarm.com Smart Chime’s Wireless
Network Settings page on the
customer website. If the device
experiencing connectivity issues

is not listed or the Devices LED is off,
try reconnecting the device via WPS. If
this does not solve the problem, try
resetting the disconnected device and
reconnecting it using WPS mode.
Power cycle
Unplug the device from power for 10
seconds and plug it back in. Wait for
the Power and Router LEDs to become
solid before trying to use the device
again.
8 Performing a communication test
Press the WPS button for 10 to 15
seconds. The WPS LED will stop
blinking and the Router LED will blink
five times. If the Router LED turns
solid, the test was successful. Please
wait two minutes before trying to use
the device again.


Factory reset
Press and hold the Reset button

(pinhole) for 15 to 20 seconds (use a
paper clip or tool if necessary). All
LEDs will blink simultaneously to
indicate that the device will reset.



This will restore factory-default
settings to the device. All network
configurations will be deleted and all
connected devices will need to be
reconnected using WPS mode.
