[This feature is also NOT applicable to Switches that were originally shipped with the HomeKit code in the packaging. Switches shipped with HomeKit codes will also have the code etched on the inside cover of the Switch].
Please make sure you have the latest version of the App (iOS) and the latest firmware for your Switch before proceeding.
- Reboot the Switch
(Hold down the bottom button. After 3 seconds, the status LED will turn red, and there will be a haptic pulse. Release the button within 2 seconds, and the Switch will reboot. If the button is not released within this period, the Switch will return to its previous state, i.e. no reboot).
