How do I reset SmartThings Hub?

Answered by Jason Smith

To reset the SmartThings Hub, follow these steps:

1. Power off the hub: Start by unplugging the power cable from the back of the hub. This will ensure that the hub is completely powered off and ready for a reset.

2. Locate the Reset button: On the back of the hub, you will find a small Reset button. It is usually a small hole that requires a pin or a similar tool to press.

3. Press and hold the Reset button: Using a pin or a similar tool, press and hold down the Reset button. Make sure to apply enough pressure to keep the button pressed down.

4. Reinsert the power cable: While still holding down the Reset button, reinsert the power cable into the back of the hub. Make sure the cable is securely plugged in.

5. Keep holding the Reset button: Continue to hold down the Reset button for about 10 seconds. This will initiate the reset process.

6. Release the Reset button: After holding down the Reset button for the specified time, release it. The hub will now start the reset process.

7. Wait for the reset process to complete: The hub will take a few minutes to reset itself. During this time, it will go through a series of flashing lights and rebooting. Be patient and let the process complete.

8. Set up the hub again: Once the reset process is complete, you will need to set up the hub again. This includes connecting it to your Wi-Fi network, adding devices, and configuring settings. Follow the instructions provided by the SmartThings app or website to complete the setup process.

It’s worth noting that resetting the SmartThings Hub will remove all previously connected devices and settings. You will need to reconfigure everything from scratch. Therefore, it’s a good idea to take note of your current setup before proceeding with the reset.

In my personal experience, I have had to reset my SmartThings Hub a few times when troubleshooting connectivity issues. The reset process outlined above has always helped in resolving any issues and getting the hub back up and running smoothly.

Resetting the SmartThings Hub is a straightforward process, but it’s important to follow the steps carefully to ensure a successful reset.
