Push notifications are enabled on the D-Link DCH-S161 by default.

NOTE: When in power saving mode, the device is still functional. The device will automatically wake-up as soon as water is detected.

D-Link does not store a user’s Wi-Fi password in any of our cloud servers.

The Wi-Fi password will only be stored locally in the user”s mobile device for the mydlink app to speed up the setup when a user installs a second device.

When a user sets up a second device, the mydlink app will ask the user if they want to use the previous Wi-Fi settings (SSID/Password).

A user’s Wi-Fi password never passes to nor is it stored in the cloud and is not analyzed by the app under any condition.

We care about our customer’s privacy.

Signal strength drop or fluctuation are common causes of RF interference.

Try these basic troubleshooting steps:

  • Change the channel on your access point or wireless router.
  • Change the location of your wireless products. Subtle changes (2-3 feet) can make a big difference. Do not put the access point or wireless router in a cabinet or enclosure.
  • 2.4GHz phones, X-10, and bluetooth devices will interfere with your wireless network. Change the location of the base for your phone, or downgrade to 900Mhz phones, or upgrade to 5.8GHz phones.
  • The wireless signal will degrade (or die completely) when going through brick (fireplace), metal (file cabinet), steel, lead, mirrors, water (fish tank), large appliances, glass, etc.
