There are 2 ways to reset the device described below: (A.) The Paperclip Method (B.) The Reset Button.
Please note, that you may only be able to use one of these 2 options. Both create the same result.
Scenario: You may have to reset the device sporadically, i.e. after a power cut; after a power surge; or after changes on the network occurred (this could be a change of time due to daylight saving time clock changes).
Good to know: Resetting your fingerprint scanner will not interfere with the registered users, or the scans taken. In other words, you will not loose registered users on the device or the scans that were taken earlier.
(A.) The Paperclip Method
Materials: You will need the fingerprint device as well as a standard paperclip. Bend the end of the paperclip outwards:
First, find the opening om the device. It is located on the left-hand side of the device.
Look at the side of the device. You will find a pinhole here, which should be labelled "Reset".
Inset the end of the paperclip into the reset-pinhole and hold for 2-3 seconds.
The screen will change from the standard screen:
To a shut down countdown and then power up again to the standard screen:
The whole process should take less than one minute.
(B.) The Reset Button
Some of the devices have also got a Reset button available on the keypad.
This is particularly useful when the device has been installed in a corner and the reset pinhole, described in option (A.) is not within reach without dismounting the device from the wall.
Press the reset button on the keypad, that looks like a bulls-eye, and keep holding it down until the screen has started the shut down countdown.
Now, let the button go. The device will complete it's reset and power back up on it's own.
The process should take less than a minute from start to finish.
