Camera errors out on install

As I work through the steps to install a new camera from my the app on my Android phone, I get the white flashing light on the camera, scan the QR code, and then the camera attempts to connect to wifi but errors out with a message "We've detected a problem with 'null' camera"  and then the shutter closes.  Any suggestions?  Is there a way to update the firmware in these cameras?

RE: Bought a new unit for another -- are you seeing the same error? It reads like it should be a separate topic.

Did you purchase your camera directly from us? What the OP describes sounds like his camera was already set up on a different account. If you still need help, give our Support a call at 888-910-1458 and we can look into your account and find out what's going on.

@Johnny M

I am having the same exact problem as the OP. I will add that the camera and doorbell that I have were from a previous owner. Are there additional steps required to free up these devices for my use?
