Received a Roku Video Doorbell & Chime SE as a Christmas gift. After downloading Roku Smarthome app
and following instructions, I get to last step to scan QE code but it fails to make a connection.
The existing doorbell is a NuTone model BK115LWH-1 with a 16 VAC transformer.
I can stand by the doorbell and connect to the network without any problem. The signal strength is good.
I powered down doorbell, modem/router and reinstalled the several times without success.
I am trying to connect to 2.4 G network.
Any other suggestions or ideas.

When the device is trying to scan the QR code and fails to make a connection, are you seeing an error within the Roku Smart Home mobile app? If so, can you let us know what it states, or provide a picture of what is shown on screen so we can better understand the issue.
As a last troubleshooting step, have you made sure that you are using the correct router password when trying to connect the Roku Smart Home device to your wireless network?
Let us know about an update and if you are still experiencing an issue, we can pass you along for further assistance with our Support team.
The doorbell does scan the QR code but I get "Connection failed." Try reentering your password. If that doesn't work, make sure you are connecting to a 2.4 GHz network and try again. If the problem persists, please restart your router and modem.
I tried this several times but get the same result.
I am on Centurylink with a Zyxel C3000Z modem supplied by them. It is dual channel 2.4 and 5 GHz. I am using the 2.4 GHz channel.

It looks like you've done a great deal of troubleshooting trying to get the video doorbell setup. As a last resort, we would recommend try to perform a factory reset on the Roku Smart Home device to see if that resolves the issue.

I did the reset per your instructions and still get the same result. Connection failed
I tried running through the setup again after moving the router and still fails to connect. The doorbell says the QR code is incorrect.
P.S. I could only move the router a couple of feet passed the fire place to get more of a line of sight to the doorbell.
I called Centurylink today and they checked my router and said everything looked good. I changed my ssid and password on the 2.4 GHz band and tried to install video doorbell again. To my surprise I was able to make a connection. The app said I needed to upgrade my firmware so I said OK but it times out. Now I am back to square one with a non-functional device. Any ideas.
P.S. I checked my wifi signal at the doorbell and it was 88%
Called tech support and they are sending a replacement for my doorbell
