Wi-Fi Connection problems

You bought the Govee LED lights, but you can’t figure out how to connect them to your Wi-Fi. There are some reasons why your LED lights might not be able to connect to your wireless network. There are some of the most common ones to help you figure out what the problem is so you can fix it quickly.

First, you must ensure you are entering the correct information. They care about the case, so you must be careful when typing in your password. Make sure that all the capital letters and small letters are in the correct order. Next, you’ll want to check how well your Wi-Fi signal is getting through.

Sometimes, your Govee LED lights won’t connect to your Wi-Fi because the signal strength isn’t strong enough. You can check if other devices have trouble getting a signal there. If so, you might want to move the router closer to your smart device so the signal can reach it.

The colors of LEDs don’t change

Another problem that often comes up when people use the Govee LED lights is that the LED strip can’t show some colors. It could be one color or more than one. Blue is the color that most often goes wrong. This is because LED lights need more voltage to show blue than to offer any other color.

Alexa Doesn’t Work

It doesn’t often happen that people can’t use their bright lights with voice commands or the Alexa app. Most of the time, this isn’t because something is wrong with your LED lights. Instead, it’s because the app has a minor bug. You can fix this problem in a few different ways.

If you’re having this problem, you’ll need to disconnect the LED light from your Alexa app and clear all app data. Go to your phone’s settings and look for “App settings” to do this. Find and click on the Alexa app.

Why is the device unresponsive on Alexa?

After doing a lot of research on how to solve this problem, I found some reasons why it keeps happening.

  • Cables are not set up right:
  • It’s possible that your Alexa device won’t operate if one or more of its cords aren’t connected correctly.
  • Don’t Have Wi-Fi? Let’s Fix It!
  • If your internet connection is slow, your Alexa device might not work well. If so, your Alexa device won’t be able to connect and won’t work as you want it to.
  • The echo device is not working right because it’s not in the right place.
  • If your Alexa Echo device is not close enough to your router to connect to it, Alexa won’t respond. This is likely to happen with your Echo Dot because it is smaller and could have been set aside.
