Before you set up the doorbell, switch your smartphone's Wi-Fi to 2.4 Ghz band. After successfully setting it up, your phone can connect to either 2.4G or 5G band (suppose your router has both).

4. How do I reset the doorbell?


If you encounter any issues (for example, you did not hear "Xlive is ready for setup" or "Xlive is ready for use" during the registration process), you can reset the doorbell and restart the registration. 

With power applied, press and hold the oval black button's upper part on the back of the doorbell for 6 seconds. Xlive will reset. When you hear "Xlive is ready for setup, please ..." and see "Xlive" hotspot on the Wi-Fi screen, then that means the reset was successful.

If this does not work, then disconnect the wires from the doorbell, wait for 30 seconds, and reconnect the wires. Alternatively, unplug the two wires you plugged into the white power kit (at the green corner) on the chime, wait 1 minute, and then plug them back in. Both ways will power off the doorbell. If you see "Xlive" is on the "Wi-Fi" screen of your smartphone after resetting, follow the user's manual to finish the setup. Otherwise, please continue to reset the doorbell. 

Some users might not be able to load a successful live view on their smartphones after registering an account. This could be the result of rushing through the setup procedure; the doorbell has not completely set up everything for you in the cloud server. In this situation, you have to reset the doorbell and then log into your account using your email and password you registered with before. Once logged in, add the doorbell to your account by tapping the "+" sign on the top left corner of the app.

When should I reboot the doorbell?

If you already installed the doorbell and one day the chime stopped ringing or responding, unplug the two wires you plugged into the white power kit (at the green corner) on the chime, wait 1 minute, and then plug them back in. This procedure will restart the doorbell. After this, test the doorbell in the app. Additionally, you can reboot the doorbell by pressing the rewind arrow at the top right corner of the app on "Details" screen. 

We suggest you upgrade to the latest firmware from the app and download the latest app from the App Store or Google Play whenever it is are available.

We are streamlining the setup process. The above issues will be resolved within the next few firmware releases. Thank you for your patience.

5. I already registered an account in the app. Do I need to register an account again after resetting the doorbell?

No. 

The account you've registered is on the cloud server and is ready to store your recorded video. If you reset your doorbell later and try to re-setup the doorbell, you can still enter the email and password that you entered during your first-time sign-up and select "Sign in". Once signed in, add the new doorbell to your account (+ sign). There is no need to register a new account.

6. Why does the doorbell show that it was already connected?
The doorbell was tested in factories before being shipped. You must reset the doorbell to erase the test information and then register your device to set up a new account.

7. I can't find the Xlive hotspot on my phone's Wi-Fi screen.
If "Xlive" does not show up on the Wi-Fi screen, then reset the doorbell. The reason for it not showing up is because the doorbell was tested in factories. Note: please check if your smartphone is connected to the 2.4 GHz broadband option of your router.

8. How do I enable sounds and notifications?

11. When should I adjust motion sensitivity?
You can adjust motion sensitivity in the app according to the wind speed in your area. If you frequently receive the push notification when winds are strong, then lower motion sensitivity in the motion alert settings. You will not miss any doorbell rings by adjusting motion sensitivity or switching off the motion alert. Make sure you did not switch off the motion alert if you want this function. A recording will begin upon motion detection, whether or not someone rang your doorbell. 

12. Where is the installation video?

Please familiarize yourself with the installation guide video.

13. How do I turn off notifications?

Go to the Settings menu on your phone to switch off notifications for Xlivepro (Xlive video doorbell, Android) app or switch off motion alert in the app.

14. Why don't I receive motion detection notifications every time someone rings my doorbell?

When motion is detected, Xlive will start to record video and send notifications to the user. Per design, there is no notification for pressing the doorbell button at this moment. You can live-view the front door. After live-viewing, someone pressing the button will trigger the notification again.

15. I don't hear a ring from my doorbell after pressing its button and still receive notifications. What do I do?

If your chime stops ringing, unplug one of the two wires you plugged into the power kit (on the green corner) which connected with the chime for 20 seconds and then re-plug it in. Press the doorbell button and do a live view to test it.

16. When doing the Xlive setup, I think I entered my router password correctly, but I didn't hear "Wi-Fi connected, Xlive is now ready for use". Why?

When typing your username or password on iPhones and on some Android phones, the phone will display recommended words. If you select that word, a space character will be automatically added to the end. Xlive thinks the added space character is a part of your username or password. Please double-check and remove it if you cannot log in. We will auto-trim the space in the next app update.

17. How do I set up and control the smart light bulb?

1. Insert the smart bulb lightly but firmly into the socket. Please note that the socket should be near the front door. The connection between the light bulb and the socket is Bluetooth based, so the distance between them must be 15-20 feet.
2. Restore power. Once the bulb is in, turn the power back on and switch on the light.
3. From app control panel, customize the bulb by selecting Details | Lights | turn on/off the light and change its colors

18. Do you have an example picture for wiring the power kit?

Below is an example picture. For more details, please refer to the user manual of "Power kit installation guide".

There is no specific order for connecting the 2 red wires to the 2 screws, and there is no specific order for connecting the 2 black wires to the 2 holes on the white power kit box.

17. How do I power up the Xlive garage door controller with a wall power adapter?

 18. My doorbell was working fine, but now I don't see the blue light on and can't hear it ring. Can I reboot the device?

If you are experiencing malfunctions, you do not need to unmount the device and press the hard reset button on the back. Instead, press the reboot button (Rewind arrow) located on the top-right corner of the "Details" screen in the app. The reboot button causes Xlive to reboot its firmware. It is similar to restarting your computer. Rebooting does not change the software and firmware. Reboots can fix minor malfunctioning like the indoor chime not ringing and the blue light not lighting up when someone presses the doorbell button.
