I am having problems linking the iFan02 to eWeLink. I get to the point where the device starts beeping (3 beeps: 2 short and 1 long), then go to the eWeLink app to add it. But eWelink never sees it and times out. I've also tried the AP method without success - in fact, my iPhone doesn't even show the ITEAD SSID. It seems as if the device is not transmitting its SSID, or perhaps, not transmitting at all. Any suggestions to get it working?
P.S. This is the 2nd iFan02 device I'm installing. The connection to eWeLink with the first was a little iffy at first, but within a few tries it connected successfully. Not sure the 2nd one isn't cooperating.
I, too, have a failed/uncooperative remote for an iFan02.
Thinking the battery was weak, I replaced it and now the remote LED flashes constantly.
Removed the PCB from the case and followed the instructions/hint above, to no avail.
The remote appears to be defective.
What's the next step??
How do I power cycle the ifan02? Could you explain 'power cycle'?
Where on the website is there a way to order a replacement remote for an Ifan02?
So, how does one secure a replacement remote for an ifan02??
I have exactly the same problem. when i press the battery the light is on until i press sound button or paring button, then i press the silver button, and repeat the same option around 15 times and the remote not sinc, do you have any option?
i have tried to pair but it's not working
I ran into a couple of problems, here's how I solved them: 1) When I had wifi extenders in use. Unplugging those and letting the ifan02 and my smartphone connect directly to my wireless router solved this problem. 2) Another problem I ran into was that my smartphone kept connecting to the 5 ghz band of my router, while the ifan02 only connects to the 2.4 ghz band. After I turned off the 5 ghz band on the router, forcing my phone to connect to the 2.4 ghz band, I was able to make the connection between the phone and the ifan02. Give either or both a try, I'm sure one of those solutions will work for you.
Seems that no one at Itead.cc is listening. All I ask for is a means to order a replacement remote, and I get ignored.
Not a good business model.
