SS Wifi Connection - Server Issues?

Recently saw a notification on my app asking if I wanted to setup a wifi connnection with my base station. I thought it was odd because I'd already done that.

Checking my keypad - it says its not connected to wifi. When I attempted to resetup the wifi, I recieved an error message saying that that it couldn't connect because of an issue with SS servers.

Anyone else seeing this? Just wondering if someone can confirm its an issue on SimplieSafe's end that needs to be resolved. 

Edit: This morning I was able to connect (I think) through the keypad with no issues. However when I try to check for updates, it says "Unable to check for updates, please try again later." 

Edit 2: After resetting the base station, seems like its able to check for updates. Now says my system is up to date. I assume that means wifi is back and my system is communicating with SS servers. Not sure what happened but I suppose I'll just keep an eye on it and see if it happens again.

@Postman77 I didn't get any notifications my wifi connection with SS servers dropped, or that my WIFI went out (through Google Home app using my Google WIFI points).  Thanks for posting and will be on the lookout.

Hi @Postman77 ,

We did not have reports of server issues over the weekend. I'm not sure what happened with your system, I'll be reporting this to our app team. In the meantime, if you see the error again, please let us know!

I'm having issues with Wifi as well.  When I use the app on my phone, on the overview screen on my phone, I swipe down or "pull down" to check system status.  Then I wait.  Sometimes it processes it and gives an update on system status.  But sometimes it doesn't.  It gives me an error message saying that there is a problem with my wifi connection.  Unfortunately, I can't check my wifi connection at that exact time because I'm at work.  But it frustrates me that I can't get system status when I want it.  Also, I noticed when I first setup my system, the timeline on my app gave all sorts of updates, like, Automatic Test Signal Received or the system was disconnected and reconnected back to wifi.  Now, with this issue, I don't get those messages regularly anymore.  When I go to check the wifi connection at home, I've had to re-enter the Password to my router/modem to get reconnected again, then the app is operating normally again.  But for some reason, I believe the wifi connection is getting disconnected and I'm unable to get system status update from my app.  Is anyone experiencing this issue?
