    Notes

    • When the doorbell flashes blue quickly, it is powered on. Continue doorbell setup.
      If the doorbell does not power on, verify the electricity is off, and then check the wiring.
    • Due to the internal “chime” battery charging requirements, first time doorbell chime operation may take up to 3 hours
  10. Use CVP app to join the doorbell to the network.
    a. Connect your smartphone to target Wi-Fi network.

    b. Open the CVP app.

    c. Tap Scan QR Code.

    d. Scan QR code from CVD button or from label on the cover of this quick start guide.

    e. Tap Connect to Network.

    f. Tap the Next button if CVD is flashing blue, otherwise reset the CVD by pressing and holding the reset button until the voice prompt states, “Reset Successfully”.

    g. If not already connected to target network, tap Change Network and follow the onscreen prompts to connect to the target network, otherwise enter network password and tap Next.

    h. The app connects to the CVD AP network.

    i. If it fails, tap Cancel and then tap Configure Wi-Fi.

          Note: UI and messages for this differ from phone to phone.

          If not accepted, the app device will not stay connected to the AP network and CVD configuration does not complete.

          If this occurs, forget the network and rejoin according to steps i.b and i.c above.
