How to manually reset your Zee's network settings

NOTE: For the Zee S2 you can reset your network settings by pressing the "r" key on an attached USB keyboard then press ENTER. Do this when the LED on the unit turns yellow.

So you changed the IP address of your Zee from within HomeSeer. Maybe you set the wrong IP or other setting and now you cannot access your Zee over the network. If you have an HDMI monitor and USB keyboard you can manually change the settings back, here is how.
  1. Connect an HDMI monitor and USB keyboard to your ZEE.
  2. Power cycle the Zee. You should see startup messages on your monitor and after about 20 seconds you should get a login prompt. Login with user=HomeSeer or user=homeseer and the password should be whatever password you changed your Zee to. If you did not change it, the default is password=hsthsths3.
  3. After you log in change to the folder where the network settings using the command: cd /etc/network
  4. Now edit the interfaces file with the command: sudo nano interfaces

    This will start a simple text editor.

    The interfaces file should look like this for DHCP:

    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
    allow-hotplug wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet manual
    wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
    iface default inet dhcp
  5. For static change "dhcp" to "static" and make sure the address, netmask, and gateway are set properly.
  6. To save your changes press Control X, then Y, then hit return.
  7. Now restart the unit to test your changes, enter: sudo reboot

    When the unit boots it will display the IP address it is set to.
