So, after an aggravating amount of time and number of attempts, I have both gotten the “WiFi connection failed” MANY times, and actually got it to read the QR code 2 or 3 times, and then received the “Internet connection failed” message.
Tim, if this is not fixed, and a new setup option is not added, this camera project will fail. For me to sit there and waste hours trying to get this camera to perform what should be a user friendly, easy code read, is an absolute nightmare. How many people have given up and have gone for a refund? To be perfectly honest, I was returning my camera due to the several problems, and I had already gotten an amazing deal on the Arlo Pro 2 cameras. Since I won a second Vacos cam, and because the night vision is amazing, I am now using two different camera systems. Not very streamlined, but here we are!
I do appreciate the support. I got it to read the code twice, but still failed to connect at the next step. I’m sure it’ll work if I keep trying, but it should not take me 3-4 hours to get it going. PLEASE: change this! With my new(ish) Arlo Pro 2s, you. Press the sync button and wait for about 30 seconds while the app searches, and then, very easily, it’s found and connected. FAR better and more reliable, less time-wasting experience.
I’m just providing feedback. With all the huge camera options out there, a poor user experience like this will destroy what progress Vacos has been able to make.
