[HowTo][Pro] Restarting Homey Pro to Recovery Mode - Adv. Options From Mobile

Sometimes you need the extra options, things hidden for normal use,
for example:

  • Full Firmware download
  • Complete Reset to sell your old Homey

Or maybe you just want to change Homey’s WiFi.

There are now a couple of extra options in the mobile Apps, so no need to use an FireFox or Chome Browser with flags enabled to press the Alt- key on your keyboard. Just use your App from now on! (Available from Mobile App v 6.11.2, both Android and iOS)

First new: If you have a Computer online and want to Restart Homey Pro in Recovery mode, no need to roll her on her back. Just press “Restart into Recovery Mode” from Homey Developer Tools

Just like normal the recovery in your Mobile App: (More … Select Homey, + Add New Homey, Setup- Homey Pro, Connect WiFi to HomeySetup-XXXXXX …)

You get a new Options Menu after connecting Your Homey Pro to WiFi:

All extra options are now available from the Mobile App.

Just in case connecting to HomeySetup-XXXXXX results in a Mobile that sees there is no Internet:


klik Keep the WiFi Connection!
(and/or Check if setup doesn’t work that the Mobile stays connected :wink: )
