How to reset your bridge

If you recently changed your WiFi network name or password, or are having problems with your bridge connectivity, a bridge factory reset may need to be performed. Identify which bridge you have and follow appropriate instructions below.

Bridge 1.0 - Rectangular and plugs directly into an outlet

1. Ensure that the bridge is plugged into an outlet such that you can access the Reset Hole on the left side of the Bridge.

2. If you have just moved the Bridge, ensure that it has been plugged in for at least 10 seconds.

3. Carefully insert the paper clip into the Reset Hole on the left side of your Bridge. You should feel a small spring-loaded button depress.

4. Keep the button depressed for 15 seconds until the upper lights starts to flash.

5. If you feel the paper clip slip off of the button, you will need to repeat steps 3 and 4.

6. Remove the pin. Over the next 30 seconds the Bridge should restart.

7. Ensure that the Bridge LED's are as follows:  1 steady, 1 blinking. If so, your Bridge has been reset, otherwise repeat steps 3 and 4.

Bridge 1.1 - Square and uses an AC/DC adapter

  1. Ensure that the bridge is plugged in.
  2. If you have just moved the Bridge, ensure that it has been plugged in for at least 10 seconds.
  3. Locate the reset button and press it down for 10 seconds.
  4. Keep the button depressed for 10 seconds until the top light starts to flash.
  5. Wait for 1 minute while the bridge reboots, then confirm that the top light is on and the middle light is blinking.

Finally, you'll need to repeat the setup flow using the pHin mobile app in order to connect your bridge to your home Wi-Fi. Access the setup flow by tapping the Settings Gear in the upper right corner of the home screen, then tap +Add Bridge.
