Treat Cam Setup Problems? - Please Read!

The Petzi Treat Cam sets up easily and quickly in most cases. If yours does not, it usually due to a WiFi router setting or a networking issue. Here are the top ones to look for:

  • Distance - Setup your Petzi in the same room as your WiFi router. You can move it after setup.
  • WiFi Mode - The Petzi WiFi chip supports b/g/n, not a/c.
  • WiFi Security - Petzi requires WPA2-AES security. Mixed modes (WPA/WPA2 and TKIP-AES) are supported.
  • Ensure Treat Cam is in Setup Mode - The Treat Cam flashes one per second when it is in setup mode. You should see Petzi_XXXX in your WiFi list. If not, reset your Petzi. (See FAQ on doing a WiFi reset.)
  • Older WiFi routers - If your router is 5 years or older, it may not support some features that Petzi (and other IoT devices) require for setup.

If it is none of these, please run a Diagnostic from the "Help Center" selection on the App menu.
