How to reset your Remootio device to the factory state

Introduction

Sometimes you might need to reset the Remootio device into the factory state (forgetting the keys and access rights) and set it up again. There are two ways to do this:

  • Resetting wirelessly from the app
  • Resetting using the jumper/button

Resetting wirelessly from the app

If you have the admin key for a specific Remootio you can reset it to the factory state right from the app. In order to do this make sure you are connected to your device via Bluetooth, then tap on the cogwheel icon in the bottom left.
