Factory reset the SmartThings Smart Bulb

The Smart Bulb lying on a table

If your SmartThings Smart Bulb isn't being discovered by the SmartThings app or if it's not performing as expected, you may need to reset the bulb and then reconnect it to the SmartThings Hub. Performing a factory reset will fix most software-related issues with the Smart Bulb.

Note: When you factory reset the bulb, any automations, rules, scenes or the SmartThings Button associated with the bulb will need to be reconfigured.

Perform a factory reset

Don't worry, with a quick factory reset, your Smart Bulb will be working once again. However, before resetting the bulb, you should remove it from the SmartThings app.

To do a factory reset, manually turn the light bulb's fixture (such as the switch on a lamp or wall) on and off six times in intervals of 0.5 to 2 seconds. After the sixth time, the bulb will flash twice indicating that it's successfully reset.

After the reset, add the Smart bulb back to the SmartThings app.
