Another way for hard reset or how to run setup again


A friend of mine gave me homey he don’t need, he has home setup there. Now, he deleted the home from app, while the device was offline and after I turn it on, it’s not starting “setup wi-fi”. I bring homey back to the wi-fi it was connected, so it sync, but that doesn’t seem help. Wi-fi not appearing.

Is there a way to hard reset homey the other way around? Or what would be my next steps? Getting brick after all would be fun story. :slight_smile:

Sorry, I had to mention it’s not pro and there is no button

This model?

Both Pro and Non-Pro White Balls are Pro now !!!

It’s black circle, like this:

Can’t believe he just gave a Pro 2023.
I bet it is Homey bridge.
The bridge is just a device which provides local radio’s to Homey Cloud/Premium.

I found an article, but I swear there is no hole for reset :smile:
Should I take off labels etc to find it? Hope I’m not just blind.

after power up, not finding the old WiFi it should turn breathing Blue… (ready to Pair)

That is done here:

But First Start creating a New Home (Homey) in the cloud from the mobile App.

Don’t have recent screenshots but it should NOT mention Pro Start for Free Here:

After that Add your Bridge as First device.

It’s not new and it’s this, but I cannot find a pin hole there…,that%20Homey%20Pro%20is%20restarting.

Thanks a lot! This works.

Is it really a Homey Pro 2023 or the Homey bridge, which looks quite similar?

Correct is is NOT a Pro , No hole , just this:

  1. Unplug the power adapter from Homey Bridge, then plug it back in.
  2. After a minute, the LED ring will automatically turn blue, to indicate set-up mode. Homey Bridge automatically enters set-up mode because it could not connect to the stored Wi-Fi network.

No hole, it is a Bridge…

Thanks all, add it as a device it is works now


Yeah thats exactly what I thought because there was no hole, but the link mentioned a 2023 Pro :slight_smile:
