How To Perform a Factory Reset (IP3M-943)
Performing a factory reset on your device will restore your camera back to default factory settings. For more information on how to reset your camera, follow the instructions provided below.
Prior to performing a physical, hard factory reset, it is recommended to first perform a reset via the web user interface (Web UI) of the camera on a computer. This is useful as well if you do not have direct, physical access to your camera. For more information on how to perform a factory reset in the web UI of your camera, click here.
Note: You will need a Phillips head screwdriver to complete this procedure.
Step 1: Ensure your camera is plugged in and powered on while performing the procedure.
Step 2: Using a Phillips head screwdriver, remove the bottom panel of your camera.
Step 3: Locate the Reset Button, press and hold the reset button for 20 - 30 seconds and allow the device to reset.
Note: LED light 2 should turn red and then when the device reconnects LED light 1 will turn solid green. Your camera will then be set back to default. The default username and password will be admin.
