It may be resulted from your phone performance. Generally, phones running on iOS are not likely to have such an issue, while some low-performance Android phones may have. If the app has not been launched for a long time, it needs to connect with the cloud when you log in again, so the device is displayed as offline. As the app is temporarily not connected with the device, it is not actually offline. It is a normal phenomenon, and you don't have to worry about it. Just like many apps require to buffer for a few seconds before displaying content, which is actually a process of connecting to the cloud.

Dear user, we are sorry for your inconvenience. The difference between the two is:
1.EZ mode: Smartconfig means that the mobile APP sends a UDP broadcast packet or a multicast packet containing the WIFI username WIFI password. The WIFI chip of the intelligent terminal can receive the UDP packet, as long as the UDP organization form is known, The WIFI username and password are decrypted by the received UDP packet, and then the WIFI username and password received by the intelligent hardware configuration are sent to the designated WIFI AP.
2.AP mode: APP configures the mobile phone to connect to the intelligent hardware (AP of the WIFI chip). The mobile phone and the WIFI chip directly establish communication, and the WIFI user name and the WIFI password to be configured are sent to the intelligent hardware, and the intelligent hardware can be connected at this time. Configured on the router. Compared to the AP mode, the EZ mode is easier to use and quicker during first network pairing. However, some mobile phones and devices are incompatible with the EZ mode and require the AP mode.
