Factory reset a reader
When you factory reset a reader, the following happens:
- The deployed configuration is deleted, including its Config Security Code.
- The reader's factory device settings are restored.
Afterwards, you can deploy a new configuration.
PKI certificates are removed as well
Custom PKI certificates on Ethernet readers are removed as well. This means that after a factory reset, you'll have to use the BALTECH default PKI package to establish a PKI-encrypted connection via a BALTECH tool.
To do a factory reset:
- Connect the reader to your computer.
Open BALTECH ID-engine Explorer.
If you haven't installed it yet, you can download it herecall_made as part of BALTECH ToolSuite.
Click the reader, then click Select.
In the bottom right, click Factory Reset Reader and confirm.
In the bottom left, you'll see the info text No configuration loaded to the reader.
