You may need to reset your Honeywell camera in the event that unwanted changes were done to camera’s settings, and you want to revert these changes to how they were set when the device was first activated.
The reset can also be used to remove the IP address associated with the device so that it can be used with another system for the same user. Generally speaking, once a reset is done, you can bring your security camera to factory settings.
To reset a Honeywell camera to its default settings, all you need to do is press and hold the camera’s reset button for 15 seconds. The power light will begin blinking, which indicates a successful reset. Depending on the model, other lights such as the network light and the active light, may also begin blinking. Below are the extended instructions.
Reset Honewell camera to factory default settings
To reset a Honeywell camera to its factory default settings, complete the following steps:
Step 1. Locate the reset button. The camera’s reset button can usually be found on the back of the camera, but it may vary between different models. Simply inspect the camera and locate the reset button.
Step 2. Press the reset button and hold it for 15 seconds to initiate a factory reset. On some devices, it may be necessary to use a paperclip or a similar thin object to properly access the button. The camera must be powered on at this time in order for the factory reset to be successful.
Step 3. Make sure the reset went through. A successful factory reset is indicated by a blinking power light. On certain types of cameras, the network light and the active light may begin blinking as well.
Once the camera has been reset, any changes made to its settings will be returned to default. After the device completes its initialization process, the blinking lights will return to solid. This should take about 40 seconds on most Honeywell cameras.
