Troubleshooting

Fail to search the switch / the switch becomes unreachable/offline

  • Make sure the switch is factory reset. If not sure, just reset the switch before you add.
  • Move the switch closer to the Deco unit.
  • Avoid physical obstructions and radio interference in the surrounding area.
  • Reset the switch and re-add it to the Deco network.
