Jaycar sent me 3 new Ankuoo MS6126 Wi-Fi switches. After setting these 3 new MS6126 switches I found the that 2 of the 3 original MS6126 are faulty. These 3 new ones were not as easy to add to the REC app then the 5 previous ones I added to the REC app 12 months previous. I found that my Samsung Galaxy S7 would not add the MS6126 to the REC app. REC app kept telling me that “device not found” I had to use an Apple iPad 3. Once all the MS6126 were added to my REC app account I could work them from any device.
To add the MS6126 to the REC app I had to:
- Change the 5Ghz password to make it different to the 2.4Ghz password and also disable the 5Ghz Wi-Fi channel on my modem.
- Remove all passwords and have “NONE” security on the 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi.
- Add all 9 Wi-Fi MS6126 to the REC app while there was no security setup on the 2.4Ghz channel.
- Once all added I had to update the firmware on the 3 new MS6126.
- Once each firmware was updated the REC app told me the firmware upgrade failed. Restart the REC app and all worked and updated fine.
Not sure if anyone else has had the Samaung Galaxy S7 issue like I experienced? Could it be that the S7 is to advanced for the MS6126 or the REC app. Maybe the REC app needs updates to keep up with the technology?
Anyways after all of that I got them all installed and found 2 of the MS6126 faulty and would not add to the REC app.
Also what I noticed with the faulty MS6126 is when the manual override light switch was turned on the MS6126 would turn the light on for about 2 minutes and then turn the lights off then for 2 seconds then light back on for another 2 minutes and so on.
