Reboot

  • If ISY is online, you can use Admin Console | Configuration | System and click on the Reboot button
  • If ISY is not online:
    • Press the reset button inside the little hole on the front of the unit
    • Or, unplug power and plug back in

  • Use a sharp object to push in the Reset Button till the RX, TX, Mem, Error lights start blinking (every second)
  • Hold for 5 seconds till the RX, TX, Mem, Error lights turn on/off consecutively (RX -> Tx -> Mem -> Error)
  • 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
  • You have configured your ISY with a static IP address, changed router/network, and can no longer access ISY

IMPORTANT: You must reconfigure ISY again or restore your backup after the factory reset.

  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)
