TitleHow to restore a Home after changing the Wi-Fi router or password
Full Description

Use the following steps to restore your existing system from the Cloud after changing your router/network. Before starting, factory reset the Savant Host by gently inserting a legal-sized paperclip into the pinhole (on the back of the Host) until the LED blinks red. Note: Host must be plugged in and receiving power for the reset to occur. See How do I reset Savant products? for further information regarding how to reset.

6. This step is important. Tapping Yes will allow you to set up the Host with new network credentials and will allow you to re-provision the Remote with the configuration. Tapping No will use the old Network credentials and will not automatically download the configuration information to the Remote, forcing a brand new setup.

7. The Host will download the configuration file from the Cloud. Poor network connectivity or wireless signal can affect this part. If it fails, please move the Host closer to the wireless access point and try again. Once complete, the app prompts to factory reset all Savant Devices.
