Why Is My Geeni Camera Blinking Red?

If you own a Geeni camera and notice that it’s blinking red, you may be wondering what the reason behind this is. The red blinking light on your Geeni camera can indicate various issues or notifications that you should be aware of. Understanding the possible causes can help you troubleshoot the problem and ensure the optimal functioning of your camera.

1. Wi-Fi Connectivity Issues

One of the main reasons why your Geeni camera may blink red is due to Wi-Fi connectivity problems. A weak or intermittent Wi-Fi signal can disrupt the camera’s connection, resulting in the red flashing light. To address this issue:

  • Ensure that your camera is within range of your Wi-Fi router.
  • Restart your Wi-Fi router and wait for it to fully boot up.
  • Check if other devices connected to the same Wi-Fi network are functioning properly.
  • Consider moving your Wi-Fi router to a more central location in your home to improve the signal strength.

2. Power Supply Issues

Another reason for the red blinking light on your Geeni camera could be related to power supply problems. Here’s what you can do:

  1. Confirm that the power adapter is properly connected to both the camera and the power outlet.
  2. Ensure that the power outlet is working correctly by plugging in another device.
  3. Check if the power adapter or cable is damaged. If so, consider replacing them.

3. Camera Initialization

During the initial setup or after a reset, Geeni cameras often go through an initialization process. This can cause the red blinking light to appear temporarily. It is recommended to:

  • Wait for a few minutes to see if the blinking light stops on its own.
  • Make sure you have followed the correct setup instructions provided by the Geeni app.

4. Firmware Update

Sometimes, a red blinking light on your Geeni camera can indicate that a firmware update is in progress. To address this:

  • Open the Geeni app and check if there are any available firmware updates for your camera.
  • If an update is available, follow the instructions to install it and wait for the update process to complete.
  • Make sure the camera remains connected to a stable power source during the update.

5. Motion Detection or Night Vision

Depending on the model of your Geeni camera, a red blinking light can indicate motion detection or night vision mode. To adjust the settings and disable the blinking light, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Geeni app and access the camera settings.
  2. Locate the motion detection or night vision settings.
  3. Adjust the settings according to your preferences or turn them off completely.

By considering these possible reasons and following the recommended solutions, you can troubleshoot and address the red blinking light issue on your Geeni camera effectively. However, if the problem persists, it is advisable to consult the Geeni support team for further assistance.
