During the Wi-Fi® connection process, the LED on the Wall Switch should flash blue, then green, then change to solid blue, confirming it's joined. If the Wall Switch blinks purple and returns to flashing blue during the initial Wi-Fi connection process, this is an indication it can’t join the router and it's likely the router security settings are incorrect.
Check the Wi-Fi security settings you have enabled on your router by following these steps:
- Log into your wireless router by entering the IP address of your router into your web browser.
- If prompted for a username/password, enter it and you’ll be taken to your router’s settings. If you don’t know the login information, try entering “admin” for the username and “password” for the password.
- Once you’ve logged in, look for an option for Wireless, and more specifically, Security.
- For Security Mode, you’re going to select WPA or WPA2-Personal (WPA2-PSK). If given an option for Encryption, select AES. TKIP is not compatible.
- In some cases, you may have to change your Wi-Fi password for security. If you have to change your password, you will have to type the updated password for all of the devices (computers, tablets, smartphones) that connect to your network.
- Click "Save" or "Apply Changes."
- Your router may reboot itself to apply the changes.
- Try connecting the Wall Switch to your network again.
If you encounter difficulty logging into your router, you can contact your internet service provider for assistance.

- Press the reboot button on the Wall Switch. Monitor the LED nightlight and see if the light flashes green.
