Gateway Configuration

Create a password for the Gateway.

In the event of a forgotten Gateway Password or other need to restore to factory settings, reset the Gateway as follows.

This will reset the Gateway to its default configuration by purging:

  • Network Configurations

  • All Gateway settings, including Light Kit

The Gateway's IP address may also change after a factory reset.

This is the only way to reset your Gateway's Password

  1. Verify Gateway is not actively controlling any devices
  2. Hold down RST button for 5 seconds
  3. Release button when blinking red LED (L3) turns off
  4. When red LED turns back on (around 60 seconds), gateway is reset.
  5. Set up Gateway
