I got a Zmodo Doorbell for Christmas. It looks like a “Zmodo ZH-CJAED Smart WiFi Doorbell Built-In Speaker and Mic Set Quiet Hours” from Fry’s. As I installed the unit next to the front door, all the wrapping and packages were cleaned-up. I still have the four-fold quick start guide, which I was following.
The existing doorbell rings well and is connected to a 10 volt AC transformer. Now that the Zmodo Smart Doorbell is connected, the green circle is lit in green.
I installed the meShare application, which did discover my other Zmodo camera. Following the install process, it asks to scan the QR code in the quick guide. There are two QR codes on the last page of the guide I have, but I suspect they are for the Facebook and Twitter pages and not to identify the product I have.
I proceed to scan the barcode on the back of the doorbell. My phone does not read it. I manually enter the ZH-CJAED id code. Then it asks for my Wi-Fi password and shows me a bar code.
I show the bar code on my Samsung Android phone to the camera, about 8 inches away. The circle is green. It blinks blue once in a while. The connection times out.
I also tried resetting the device by pressing the reset pinhole and starting over. This does nothing to get the process going.
I’m stuck. Please advise.
