I know that feeling. Having to worry that someone would bump into your home even when you have a Simplisafe doorbell installed is no fun. You've already played your role in installing the Simplisafe doorbell but yet, it looks like the device is not going to cooperate with you. Don't worry. There's a solution. Keep reading and find out why is my Simplisafe doorbell offline?\n\n\n\nSo yes, there are many reasons that could cause your Simplisafe doorbell to go offline? But before I share them with you, it\u0092s important I say this. The Simplisafe doorbell would only connect to the Simplisafe security system. Don't forget this.\n\n\n\nWhat are the reasons that cause to go offline a simplisafe doorbell?\n\n\n\nCheck these out. The reasons your Simplisafe doorbell could be offline.\n\n\n\nsimplisafe doorbell won't connect to wifi\n\n\n\nThe truth is you cannot make use of a Simplisafe doorbell camera without a WiFi connection. Sadly, the Simplisafe doorbell won't connect to WiFi can make the device go offline. Sounds familiar? Alright, let's get into details.\n\n\n\nYou will get a camera disconnected message on your mobile app if the device is no longer connected to WiFi. And at this point, there are two things involved. First off, it could be that your Simplisafe doorbell is too far away from the router.\n\n\n\nIf the distance between your Simplisafe doorbell and the router is much, that's an invitation to WiFi disconnection. And automatically, an Offline Simplisafe doorbell follows next.\n\n\n\nBut that's not all. Another contributing factor to WiFi disconnection in a Simplisafe doorbell is inadequate bandwidth to operate the service. A low bandwidth will not be able to pick up the device. Quite unfortunate.\n\n\n\nBelieve me when I tell you that WiFi connection in simplisafe doorbell operations is very paramount. This is precisely why you have to ensure a close range and enough bandwidth for connectivity. To make matters worse, any attempt to change the WiFi password or network name without updating the changes may cause WiFi disconnection.\n\n\n\nsimplisafe doorbell no power\n\n\n\nThe chances are that Simplisafe doorbell no power can cause a Simplisafe doorbell to go offline. Bang! You've been hit with another fact. Let's keep digging in.\n\n\n\nIf your Simplisafe doorbell or your router lost power, the device would go offline. It's that simple. Now, the big question is, how can they lose power? The answer? When they're not correctly plugged in.\n\n\n\nTake note; your camera could be the one well plugged, and your router is not well plugged. Still, the device wouldn't be active. The same applies when it\u0092s the other way round. Since these two work hand in hand, they both have to be well plugged into a power source.\n\n\n\nThere's something else. The base station is designed to function in the course of power outrage by drawing power from its rechargeable backup battery. But, this is limited to a duration of 24 hours. This simply means that your Simplisafe doorbell would go offline if it does not get a power source after 24hours of power outrage.\n\n\n\nIn essence, your Simplisafe doorbell not been able to access any power supply could result in a shutdown.\n\n\n\nsimplisafe doorbell not charging\n\n\n\nSo why is my Simplisafe doorbell offline? Because it\u0092s not charging and quite a number of things could contribute to your Simplisafe doorbell camera not charging.\n\n\n\nI will begin by making mention of a faulty Simplisafe doorbell. There's absolutely no magic anyone can do about this. If your device is having one or two technical problems, it will not charge. It might not even be able to draw power from any power source.\n\n\n\nAnother thing that could cause your device not to charge is the supply of low voltage power. In fact, the recommended voltage supply for Simplisafe doorbell ranges between 8V- 24V. That means that any voltage lesser than 8V is considered low for the device.\n\n\n\nWhat if I tell you that the absence of WiFi connection can also cause your Simplisafe doorbell not charging? Don't forget that I earlier mentioned it to you that WiFi connection is very paramount. This is how far it can cause your Simplisafe doorbell to go offline.\n\n\n\nSo it all adds up to this. Your Simplisafe doorbell wasn't getting enough Voltage power; hence it wasn't charging and went offline. Or a faulty device\/ loose WiFi and thus cannot access power.\n\n\n\nSimplisafe doorbell flashing red\n\n\n\nObviously, we all know what a red light signifies. Danger. Warning. Incorrect. And some other terms. It's no exemption for a Simplisafe doorbell. And once your Simplisafe doorbell starts flashing red, it could go offline.\n\n\n\nThen, that's one good reason you should know why your Simplisafe doorbell is flashing red. Any incorrect WiFi details would cause the device to go off. Even any changed detail would cause the same effect.\n\n\n\nAnd then there's the distance, unplugged router, and the WiFi network frequency. All of these would make your Simplisafe doorbell signal you with a red light.\n\n\n\nBig news: Here's a table that shows the major causes of Simplisafe doorbell going offline on a four-point Likert Scale.\n\n\n\nFactorsScaleNo WiFi connectionAlwaysDistance between Simplisafe doorbell and routerOftenInadequate bandwidthOftenLow voltageAlwaysFaulty Simplisafe doorbellRarelyUnplugged routerOftenIncorrect WiFi detailsRarely\n\n\n\nHow to fix Simplisafe doorbell offline problems?\n\n\n\nDo you want to learn how to solve Simplisafe doorbell offline problems? That's right, because you'll get it all here. So stick with me.\n\n\n\nIdentifying when a Simplisafe doorbell goes offline is no task.

All you need do is to reduce the distance between the router and your Simplisafe doorbell. You should bring the router closer to the doorbell or bring the doorbell closer to the router. Either way, you would be able to bridge the gap and allow for a WiFi connection.\n\n\n\nWait, don't be in a hurry. We're just getting started. For inadequate bandwidth, getting a WiFi extender is the way out. What a WiFi extender would do for your WiFi network is helping it boost its signal.\n\n\n\nAnd hey, watch out for these things when buying a WiFi extender to fix your Simplisafe doorbell offline problem. The extended must be able to support a 2.4GHz WiFi frequency. And, also it must be able to give the extended WiFi network a name different from the main WiFi network.\n\n\n\nLet's talk about fixing your Simplisafe doorbell offline problem caused by power. Check your doorbell and the router if they're both well plugged in. If they're not, do the needful and ensure a tight connection. It sounds simple. And it is.\n\n\n\nOn the other hand, see to it that the amount of voltage power you're supplying is not low. Sometimes, all you need is a high voltage power higher than what you are supplying. Get it?\n\n\n\nYou might want to check the status of your Simplisafe doorbell if it keeps going online. Found any technical issues? The best you can do at this point is to call for a technician.\n\n\n\nAlso, your WiFi network details. Ensure all details are accurate. And if you get to make any changes, update it immediately.

This is how to change a Simplisafe doorbell WiFi network.\n\n\n\nStep 1: Unscrew the screws holding your Simplisafe doorbell in place and remove the device from the bracket.\n\n\n\nStep 2: Reset your doorbell by holding down the reset button for up to fifteen seconds. You'll find this button located at the back of the doorbell, slightly above the micro USB port on the left. It's the biggest button there.\n\n\n\nStep 3: Reset your Simplisafe Mobile app after you're done resetting the device. Note that a successful reset on your Simplisafe doorbell would indicate with a white light flash and a voice prompt.\n\n\n\nStep 4: Generate a new QR code for the new WiFi network.\n\n\n\nVideo illustration\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=pfO2BC3Dg-A&app=desktop\n\n\n\n\nConclusion\n\n\n\nLet's rewind and have all details sum up here. The reason your Simplisafe doorbell is offline would largely center around the WiFi network connection. Never forgot this son of a bitch. Much more, you would have to check your voltage power supply and the state of the device.\n\n\n\nAfter all, whatever device that's faulty cannot carry out its full operations. So no matter what you put in place, as long as it has technical issues, it wouldn't respond to you. But that's another story.\n\n\n\nSo go ahead and figure out why your Simplisafe doorbell is offline and do the needful. I'd love to hear from you. Good luck with that.
