WiFi will not reconnect after power outage
I have seen this question asked and there are no acceptable answers. I often get power flashes where I live and almost every time the WiFi will not reconnect. I disable 5 GHZ on my router and it still will not reconnect. The app just stays in a contant loop. The only way I get it to eventually reconnect is to unplug and remove battery to reboot it. That's fine when I'm home but I am not home half the time. Now what do I do. I may have a bad WiFi card and would like a new base station.

Hi @jjr5067 ,
When power comes back, does the Base Station just not reconnect to WiFi indefinitely? I'm thinking that the Base might just be taking a longer time than usual.
Alternately, it might also be an issue with your router's security settings. Have you already tried setting up a Guest WiFi network that only your Base Station (and other SimpliSafe components) are connected to?

I have the same issue. If I lose WiFi due to a power outage or some similar event, SimpliSafe doesn’t reconnect to wifi… my voice prompts stop working correctly when off wifi. It was like this for weeks. I finally figured out I can re-enter the exact same wifi credentials on the pin pad to reconnect after a power outage… it’s a shame SimpliSafe isn’t able to reconnect by itself… this needs to be fixed!
