HI all, i bought 4 circle view cameras last year with a sky Q router in my living room
front of house - 1 solid wall from router
back of house - 2 solid walls from router
side of house 2 solid walls from router
garage 3 solid walls from router
FH SH always worked perfectly, G and BH absolute nightmare, constantly going offline before reserving an IP address for each camera i had to manually turn the camera off and on to reset. Back and fourth with Logitech support we was advised to split the 2.4 and 5ghz networks. After doing this it made some difference but still had issues. More trouble shooting we bought another home pod, this time the mini to see if another home hub helped sadly it did not.
After a while of research I suspected it was a WiFi signal issue as i live in a 1940’s built house that has really thick walls. I ended up buying 2 eero pro routers. 1 connected to my skyQ by Ethernet wire as my main WiFi router (turned off the sky WiFi so the router is just a gateway) then the other eero pro router upstairs connected to my router down stairs via WiFi. Just a note i have 2 routers. Not one and a booster.
Cameras now work perfectly, never drop out. The eero routers are 149 pound and the set up is really easy. I would strongly advise anyone with issues gets this set up.
The eero router even has the ability to temporarily turn off the 5ghz network to help pair the cameras to your home app (the cameras only work on 2.4ghz)
these are tri band routers meaning they have 2 5ghz networks and 1 2.4ghz
they keep the 2.4 and one 5 ghz network for devices, and the 2nd is reserved for the eero routers to communicate so they don’t slow down the network.
