No Link to Dispatcher Warning (Gen 3 SimpliSafe)
Your Base Station is the brains of your system and requires a clear connection between your SimpliSafe® devices and home network. If you are subscribed to the Standard Monitoring or Fast Protect™, a “No Link to Dispatcher” error means that your Base Station has lost both its Wi-Fi and cellular connection and cannot communicate with the Monitoring Center. If you are subscribed to to Self Monitoring with Camera Recordings or Basic App Control, a “No Link to Dispatcher” error means that your Base Station has lost its Wi-Fi connection and cannot communicate with the Monitoring Center. To help restore the connection between your Base Station and system, refer to the troubleshooting steps below.
Check the Placement of Your Base Station
To rule out any interference that could impact the Base Station’s connection, make sure that the Base Station is at least 3 feet off the ground and is on a non-dense material like wood or glass. We also recommend placing the Base Station in a central location in your home, and to keep it out of enclosed spaces like cabinets or closets.
Connection errors may also occur when the Base Station is installed near one or more of the following devices:
Large appliances that have radio frequency signals
If your Base Station is close to any of the above devices, try moving it 3-5 feet away.
Reset the Base Station
In some instances, resetting the Base Station will be a step you need to take to restore communication between the Base Station and your system.
Before Getting Started
Please ensure that your system is disarmed and you have a Phillips head screwdriver available.
Additionally, make sure that your Base Station is plugged into a wall outlet and has power prior to taking these steps.
