Are you struggling to connect your Wi-Fi bridge to your Bluetooth on your EUFY device? You’re not alone. Many users face this issue, but fortunately, there is a simple solution. In this guide, we will walk you through the step-by-step process to make it work seamlessly. So, let’s dive in and get your EUFY device connected without any hassle.

Step 1: Launch the UFE App and Select the Device

To begin, open the UFE app on your mobile device. Look for the “+” icon and tap on it. From the list of devices, choose either the Wi-Fi doorbell chime or the Wi-Fi bridge and doorbell chime, depending on the model you have.

Step 2: Select Your Home and Obtain the QR Code

Next, select your home from the app. You will need to manually enter the required information or simply use the QR code provided. Ensure that the QR code is visible on your screen for easy scanning by the device.

Step 3: Plug in the Wi-Fi Bridge

Plug in the Wi-Fi bridge into an electrical outlet. Once connected, you will notice a solid light followed by a blinking light. Proceed to the next step when the light starts blinking.

Step 4: Connect to a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi Network

Access the settings on your mobile device and navigate to the Wi-Fi section. Locate your 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network and connect to it (if you are not already connected). It is crucial to use a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network for a successful connection.

Step 5: Return to the UFE App

Go back to the UFE app and ensure that the red blinking lights on the Wi-Fi bridge are still active. Tap “Next” to proceed.

Step 6: Wait for Connection

Patience is key in this step. The app will take some time to establish a connection with your 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network. Allow the app ample time to complete the process.

Step 7: Sync Button and Blinking Green Light

At this point, you might notice that the light on the Wi-Fi bridge turns green but is not blinking. This is a crucial step that many users miss. To trigger the blinking green light, press and hold the sync button on the device for two seconds. You will hear a beep, indicating that the light should now start blinking green.

Step 8: Connect to Bluetooth

Once the light is blinking green, tap “Next” in the app. It will now initiate the Bluetooth connection process. Give it a few moments, and you’ll see that it successfully connects.

Step 9: Connecting to Wi-Fi

The app will prompt you to select your 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network again. Choose your network from the list, enter the password, and click “Done” to confirm. The app will start testing the Wi-Fi connection, and upon successful connection, the light on the Wi-Fi bridge will start blinking blue.

Step 10: Finalizing the Setup

After the Wi-Fi connection test, the app will finalize the setup process. It may show a message saying “Connecting” or “Pair added successfully.” At this stage, you can click “Continue” and give your device a name. Congratulations! Your EUFY device has been successfully added and is ready for use.

Additional Tips

  • Firmware Update: Once the setup is complete, you can update the firmware of your device if needed. Follow the prompts in the app to ensure your device is up to date.

Remember, the most crucial step in this process is to wait for the blinking green light before proceeding with the Bluetooth search. If the light is not blinking green, the Bluetooth connection will not work. If you are still facing issues, we recommend rewatching this video or seeking further assistance to ensure a successful connection.
