hi diy-ers this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to be showing you how to reset a honeywell home or residio tuxedo keypad there are actually three different reset processes that you can perform for a honeywell home tuxedo keypad the three that i'll be going over today there's a tuxedo keypad refresh which is just basically rebooting the keypad there's a factory default which will clear all the settings and configurations for the tuxedo but it won't clear the z-wave devices it will clear the names and any rules and scenes that you have set up but it won't actually wipe out the z-wave devices from the system for that second one for the factory default and then the third one uh that we can perform is a z-wave factory default and that will clear all the z-wave devices so that's basically a reset of the z-wave controller um so let's go through them one by one uh the first one we're gonna do is that tuxedo keypad refresh which is just rebooting the keypad so it reloads again uh you'll also this will also be done automatically if you go into programming whether that's on the tuxedo or a different keypad that's connected with the same vista system uh it will automatically reboot but uh to perform the the refresh uh we press the gear icon we're at the main screen first of all and then we press the gear icon at the bottom of the screen and then we choose uh system setup and then we choose advanced setup and then we have to enter in our installer code assuming your tuxedo is connected with a vista system it'll be four one one two as the default um if it's not connected uh four one four zero if it's not connected with a vista system but ours is so four one one two is our default code uh because it's connected with the vista system so um then we're in the advanced setup menu and we can just choose the keypad reset option right here and it will ask us if we're sure we want to reset and we'll press ok and then it's performing the rebooting process again this doesn't actually change anything on the tuxedo this is just a quick and easy way to reset the keypad so that way it reloads it'll refresh information from the panel maybe if your tuxedo was being glitchy it wasn't working properly or something you might you might do this just as a quick way to give it a little kick and when it reloads then hopefully it's working a little bit better so they put this option in there again the same thing is done if you were to go into programming on the tuxedo or another keypad connected with the same vista system and then you did your programming changes and you used star 99 to exit programming then you will get that reboot process same thing if you go into console mode and then go into programming exit it will automatically reboot so you see it's uh we're back online here we're back at the main screen of the tuxedo so that completed the tuxedo keypad refresh so the second one we'll do we'll do the tuxedo factory default this will do a lot of things which i'll describe in a little bit but let's uh get let's get into it so to do the factory default we'll press the settings icon at the bottom or it kicked us out just before i clicked it so we'll click on now the the gear icon the settings icon and then what we're going to choose we're going to choose system setup and we're going to choose advanced setup and then again the same code as before four one four zero if it's not connected with avista but ours is so our default is four one one two and then uh we can choose the factory default button in the bottom left and it'll give us a caution message are you sure you want to do this this is a big step you're pretty much clearing all the settings from the tuxedo so it wants to make sure you're sure and we'll choose okay because we are and then we're getting the um the reset and process and it's also doing a z-wave factory reset in there but this actually will keep the z-wave devices on on the tuxedo there is a special z-wave uh factory default which i'll show you in a moment um but that's that's uh how you do the the factory default what this is going to do is this will clear all the settings and configurations that we have made on the tuxedo as far as z-wave is concerned it will clear the device names and it will clear any local scenes that you have created for z-wave devices but you should still have your z-wave devices on there it will take a minute to perform the factory default process there there is a lot going on here um so so you might do this if you're having major problems with your tuxedo if it's not working properly and you need to do a last resort troubleshooting step then you might might do this factory default process another reason you might do it if you're selling the tuxedo or you're giving it away to someone else and you want them to start fresh with brand new settings um then you would be likely to do this just to have them start fresh with a new tuxedo i mean it's not actually new but it's loading it from scratch you see when you we do this um we we get back to the main um the new menu when we set up the tuxedo for the first time we have to choose a language and we have to choose an operation mode uh we're fine with english and our normal operation mode so we'll click the check icon in the bottom right and then it does ask us for an ecp address and an ris address we're fine keeping these at the default um you don't want to click primary ras address if the tuxedo is being used on a system that also uses total connect 2.0 total connect will be the main uh the primary ris address but we're finding these so we'll click the check mark icon and um it's getting the information from the panel uh you see it did kick us off the wi-fi network so we would have to do that again if we were trying to uh get it connected to the wi-fi which in most cases you are um but you you see you're basically starting from scratch you have to um you know go through that initial setup wizard it was very brief you saw it just now um and you're gonna have to reconfigure your tuxedo so really you only do that if you're planning to give it away sell the tuxedo or you're planning or if there's something really wrong with the tuxedo and you need to fix it and you will get this end user license agreement uh we'll just click accept for now and uh it's going to ask us to connect to a wi-fi network we'll quickly do that we'll choose alarm grid we'll enter in our password um here and we're just entering that in and we'll connect to that and we'll be hiding that in the video so you won't you won't actually see the password there but um that is uh what you do um so uh then we'll choose the next icon down here and it does give us some more info um some more setup stuff we'll just click save that's not actually our zip code but we're fine with that for now um so we'll just choose next and we will just choose finish we don't need to set this up right now and it does tell us how we can get to that again but you see we are starting from scratch on the tuxedo when you do the factory defaults so that's two of the three resets that you can form on the tuxedo uh the last one we can do is the z-wave factory default so this clears all the z-wave devices from the tuxedo and you're basically starting from scratch as far as z-wave is concerned but just to show you how to do it you click devices and then you click z-wave setup and then you click the more button down here in the bottom right corner and then you choose z wave default and then it's going to ask us if we're sure again this is a big step because we're going to have to reconfigure our z-wave network but we are sure so we'll choose yes and then it's doing the z-wave default now um what like i said this clears all the z-wave devices from the tuxedo uh but it doesn't tell the z-wave devices what happened so the z-wave devices will still think that they're actively paired with a network so what you're going to have to do when you if you want to continue using them with the tuxedo you're going to have to add them back into the network and when you do this you're going to want to clear them from the network first or delete them from the network you can do this on any z-wave controller including the tuxedo like you can see it has the remove device option there so when you when you do that you press the remove device button and then you activate the inclusion exclusion function on your z-web device and you'll get a message stating that a device was cleared from the network and that wipes out the z-wave data so that way you can successfully pair it with the tuxedo afterwards or a different z-wave controller if you were using that but that's how you perform the z-wave default we don't get taken back to the main menu so we'll just choose the home button up in the upper right corner so those are the three reset processes for the honeywell home tuxedo keypad we had a tuxedo keypad refresh a tuxedo factory default and a z-wave factory default so those are how you do all three of those so if you have any questions about the honeywell home tuxedo or about alarm monitoring services send an email to support
