Information common to both models

  • The default (case sensitive) UserID = admin
  • The default (case sensitive) Password = admin

ISY-99i Series

  1. Use a sharp object to push in the Reset Button till the RX, TX, Mem, Error lights start blinking (every second)
  2. Hold for 5 seconds till the RX, TX, Mem, Error lights turn on/off consecutively (RX -> Tx -> Mem -> Error)
  3. Release
  4. Log in using admin/admin
  5. See Set_Userid/Password to set a new UserID and password.


Before you proceed with the procedure below, you will need to retrieve the MAC address of your ISY device (see below)

To reset your userid and password please follow the steps as outlined below:

  1. Disconnect PLM from the ISY.
  2. Telnet to ISY
  3. Enter MAC address as both the userid and password at login prompt
  4. Wait 45 seconds (or until you see "Please connect PLM message")
  5. Plug PLM back in
  6. Log in again using admin/admin
  7. See Set_Userid/Password to set a new UserID and password.

Note: There is a timeout of 5 minutes for the PLM to get plugged back in. If timed out, the userid and password are not reset.

Retrieving ISY's MAC Address

  1. Versions 2.6.1 and above: Go to http://your.isy.ip.address/desc
  2. Versions 2.6 and below: Go to http://your.isy.ip.address:port/0/d
  3. Look for <UDN> (e.g. <UDN>uuid:00:03:f4:02:af:74</UDN>)
  4. The MAC Address is the what follows "uuid:" and before the </UDN> (e.g. 00:03:f4:02:af:74)
