New Wireless Netword

I will be changing to a new wireless network. Will I have to go to each device (cameras) and re-set them up with the new SSID or is there a way to do this from the control panel? So are already mounted in some difficult places.

Hi ebelew,


Yes, since each of your cameras does connect to your WiFi router separately, you'd need to reset each one to set a new WiFi SSID and password.


But you could actually try the other way: Change your new WiFi router to have the same SSID and password as the old one. That way, all of your devices (not just your SimpliSafe ones) will be able to reconnect with no trouble.
