How do I reboot the SmartThings Hub?

Rebooting the Hub is a good solution to the following issues:

  • Hub LED blinks blue or is stuck on solid blue
  • Hub is unresponsive after a power outage
  • Hub is inactive or offline
  • Camera can’t retrieve livestream
  • Devices are not responding
  • ZigBee mesh network needs repair
  • General performance issues


To reboot the SmartThings Hub

Follow these steps:

  1. Press and release the red recessed button on the back of the Hub
  2. After a few seconds, the LED will turn red then go dark
  3. Wait a few minutes for the Hub to reboot. The LED will turn solid blue, and then when the Hub is back online, the LED will turn solid green


Alternatively, you can perform a “hard” reboot of the Hub (if button-pressing isn’t your thing):

  1. Disconnect the power and ethernet cables from the Hub
  2. Remove the 4 AA batteries (if installed)
  3. Wait 2-3 minutes
  4. Reinstall the batteries (optional but recommended)
  5. Reconnect the power and ethernet cables
  6. When the Hub is back online, its LED will turn solid green
