Restarting & Resetting Your ISY-99i

Reboot There are several methods to restart the ISY-99i.

  • Remove power for 30 seconds.
  • Use a sharp object to push in the Reset Button (on the front panel).
  • On the Configuration panel in the ISY Administrative Console there is a Reboot button in the System area.


Reset Userid/Password to admin/admin

  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


Factory Reset

There are only a very few reasons for performing a Factory Reset.

  • Corrupted File system (blinking ERR light)
  • To start fresh ... i.e. if you are going to restore your old backup on the same ISY, then in all likelihood factory reset is NOT going to fix anything
  • Reuse one ISY for more than one location


  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 at least 30 seconds until all of the the RX, TX, Mem, Error lights turn off and Mem light starts flashing quickly
  3. Release and wait for system reboot (reboot is complete when Mem light stops flashing)
