An internet connection is also required when you want to take control of this cam via your voice assistants like Alexa or Siri, or Google Assistant.
So I think you’ve understood, Internet has a major role in the operation of this device. Without it, the camera will lose many features.
And for this reason, many Blurams users are wondering what they can do when the camera isn’t connecting to Wifi.

How To Fix Blurams Camera Not Connecting To Wifi?
In the following sections, I will give you 7 different solutions that you can try whenever your Blurams camera loses connection with Wifi.

Solution 1: Power Cycle The Camera.
When connectivity issues arise, we always recommend power cycling your camera. Why do we suggest this tip at the beginning?
First, A power cycle process is an easy-to-implement solution, all you have to do is unplug the cam for 60 seconds and then plug it back in.
Second, this trick can help you fix internal errors that can reduce device performance and can be the real cause of your camera isn’t connecting.
Solution 2: Power Cycle The Router.
The second solution is the same as the first but this time you’ll do it with your router because sometimes connection issues are triggered by routers.
Restarting your router will clean up the cache to make it run more smoothly and also allow it to reset and re-establish the connection with your ISP.
This process can also strengthen Wifi signals and reduce certain frequency interference, which means a stronger connection to your Blurams camera.
To perform this solution, you need to unplug the router for 30-60 seconds and then plug it back in.
Solution 3: Connect The Cam To The 2.4 GHz Channel.
Like many smart home devices, the Blurams camera works only on the 2.4 GHz channel and doesn’t operate on the 5 GHz frequency.
So if you’re connecting your camera for the first time and you have a dual-band router that provides both frequencies, then I suggest disabling the 5GHz during the connection process.
After making sure you’re connected to the correct frequency channel which is 2.4GHz, test your device and see if it works. if not, move on to the next tip.
Solution 4: Improve Wifi Signals.
Wifi signals can also be part of your problem because when your camera receives weak signals, connectivity issues will be more common.
There are many solutions to improve WiFi signals and allow them to reach every corner of your home.
You can do this by changing the router location and put it in a spot where it can cover all your house.
Another way to boost signals is to add a WiFi range extender or install a mesh network that can broadcast signals throughout your home.
Solution 5: Update The Device Firmware.
Blurams camera update is also necessary not only to improve features but also to avoid all sorts of issues like the one we’re discussing in this post.
Firmware is the foundation of the software stack that your camera’s hardware uses for basic operations, and updating this firmware will fix any bugs and errors that may be causing your connectivity issues.
