Error Code 7007
One common issue users might encounter is indicated by the error code 7007 for the AlfredCam on your camera list. This error typically signifies a connection problem between the camera and your network, which can disrupt the camera's functionality and your ability to monitor your space effectively.
- Check Network Connection: Start by ensuring your Wi-Fi network is functioning correctly. Check other devices connected to the same network to verify internet access. Sometimes, simply restarting your router can resolve minor connectivity glitches.
- Replug in the AlfredCam: Disconnect your camera from its power source and then plug it back in. This simple action can often reset the camera's connection to the network, resolving any temporary issues.
- Factory Reset: If the above steps do not work, consider performing a factory reset on your AlfredCam.
