Enter master PIN to unlock remote management says check internet connection

When I opened the Simplisafe app this morning it had forgotten all of my settings and was asking to set up a new base station.

I went through the whole setup again but when I get to the last step which asks to enter master pin it just says "check internet connection".

I have tried through the website and app, the app just takes me back to the enter pin page each time.

I noticed I now have two base stations with the same serial no. in my account, I called customer support and spent 30 minutes on the phone which was a waste of time, nothing got fixed and they couldn't even delete one of the base stations.

@richard_81ESHK unfortunately, Simplisafe is going to have to sort this out. (And I would expect they would explain the original issue too at the same time).  I would call back and if the agent can't help, ask for a technical support supervisor to call you back when available.  Especially with recent expansion of the support centers, training still has to catch up.

Please post your outcome here if you get a chance.

richard_81ESHK,

This definitely doesn't sound right at all. I've created a ticket with our Specialist team so we can get your account sorted.

I have spent hours on the phone with support and I pretty much give up now. Simplisafe has been taking $9.99/month for a service I can't use on top of what I paid for the system to start with. To cancel I now have to call again and spend another hour on hold because the service can be set up online but can't be cancelled online - huh, I wonder why??

The app is still asking me to enter master PIN then doesn't do anything. Been through 3 factory resets, 3 different phones, nothing happens.

This sucks.

This is all the app has given me for the last few months...

Hi richard_81eshk,

 

In this step, the app reaches out to your Base Station so it can confirm your Master PIN, because that's where it's stored. But that should only happen once, during setup.

 

Way back in November, we did have a Senior Specialist reach out to get this figured out, and it sounds like the root was an account issue that we should have already gotten resolved. If you still need help with that, let us know and we'll request a call ticket again.

@harsimrangrewal​ the previous user, richard_81eshk, was having a very specific account issue.

For your case, it's more likely that your Base Station is not yet properly connected. Is it already set up on your WiFi? You can do that through the Keypad, by navigating to Menu > System Settings > WiFi.

Was there a solution to this? Post indicates there should be 4 comments, but none are showing.

No, I ended up throwing away my simplisafe system and buying something else.

Oh and you will have to spend HOURS on the phone to cancel. Instant sign up online but for some reason you have to call and jump through hoops to cancel, hmm I wonder why? Good luck.

@richard_81eshk​ I canceled my subscription today and it erased my system. Trying to set it up again and running into the PIN issue. So close to throwing mine in the trash too.

Hi @SimpliWasteOfMoney 

Apologies, there's an issue with the Community right now where older replies are not displaying correctly. But the original poster's issue was very specific to their account, and should have been resolved by one of our specialists looking into their account. It's regrettable to hear that they weren't able to figure it out.

But I do see your other thread about your specific issue, and I will reply there.

I was able to get it addressed. The issue here was that the console had 2g sim and now, the industry has transitioned to 3g/4g. Call Simplisafe, and they will send you a replacement part, and the replacement is a 5 min job and that will fix the issue.
