Your Eufy doorbell chime is not working and you are wondering why. It’s frustrating when your home security system doesn’t work, but the process of troubleshooting can be complicated since there are so many different components in each device.
This article will walk through the steps to troubleshoot any issues with your Eufy Doorbell Chime, regardless if it has an installation issue or not.
What are the causes of a Eufy doorbell chime not working?
1. Power supply issues
If your Eufy doorbell chime is not working, it may be because of power supply issues. Check the power connections to make sure they are secure. You can also go through the chime settings in the Eufy app to make sure everything is set up correctly. If you need to, you can increase the volume on the chime. You may also need to re-add the chime to your application. Finally, you can power cycle the indoor chime.
2. Battery issues
The Eufy doorbell chimes not working because of battery issues can be caused by a variety of things. The most common cause is that the batteries are not working properly. If the chime does not light up after changing the outlet while other electrical devices are working well, it means the chime may be defective.
Another possibility is that the wire-free doorbell is not receiving power. In this case, go and recharge the batteries in order to get them back to work.
3. Connectivity issues
If your wired Eufy doorbell chime is not working, it may be due to connectivity issues. The Eufy doorbell comes with its own chime that is meant to work with the device.
To set up the accompanying chime with your wired Eufy doorbell:
- open the EufySecurity App, plug the chime into a wall outlet and wait until you see a solid blue light,
- once you see the light, tap “Chime lights up” in the app,
- press and hold the “Sync” button on the chime for two seconds, the light should start to flash and you should hear a “ding” sound,
- tap “connect” in the app. Press your doorbell button to check and see if the chime paired correctly.
- Tap “Done” in the app and your doorbell and chime are paired and ready to use.
If your Eufy doorbell chime is not working, it may be because of a software issue. First, check the power connections to make sure the chime is properly plugged in.
Then, go through the chime settings in the Eufy app to make sure the volume is turned up and the chime is properly connected to your home’s Wi-Fi network. If you’re still having trouble, try re-adding the chime to your application.
