If you ever decide to sell or give away your SmartThings Hub to someone else, you’ll want to make sure you reset it to factory defaults so the new owner can start fresh. Here’s how to do it.

Keep in mind that resetting SmartThings to factory settings will delete everything, including connections for all of your sensors, as well as any automation tasks and routines you have set up in the app.

The process is quite simple and similar to how you would reset your router. Start by looking for the recessed red button on the back of the SmartThings hub.

Then take a paperclip or other thin object. The hole is large enough to fit pencils and most pens. A mechanical pencil like the one shown below works great.

Insert a paperclip or pen into the recessed hole, then press and hold the red button for 30 seconds. The LED on the front of the hub will blink yellow. Once it stops flashing and turns amber, release the reset button.

The LED indicator will change throughout the rest of the process, including purple and blue. It will take about ten minutes to completely reset the hub. When it’s done, the LED indicator will turn green and you’re done.

Again, factory resetting your SmartThings hub will completely erase everything, so make sure resetting the hub is something you’re absolutely sure you want to do, otherwise you’ll be setting everything up the same way you did when you first bought it.
