NEWB Question - How to reboot and update Aeotec hub

WARNING: Newb at the helm !

I am experimenting with an Aeotec Smart Home Hub. I have done a bit of reading on the forum and found it quite enlightening. That said, I need to get up to speed on the jargon.

Here goes:

  1. When someone ‘reboots’ their hub, what exactly do they mean? Do they simply power cycle it, or something else ?
  2. After rebooting, does the hub re-synchronise with all its previously re-registered devices or does that need to be done manually?
  3. Does this hub automatically update its own device drivers? If not, how does one prompt it to do so ?

That’s all for this one.

Thanks to all.

Rebooting you hub can currently be done in 2 ways. You can unplug it and plug it back in for a hard reboot. And you can use the IDE to do a soft reboot, but the IDE is supposed to go away soon.

After a reboot all your devices will continue to work with no additional action on your part.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the prompt response.

I had a look at the list of current Smartthings edge drivers, but cannot seem to find one specifically for the Fibaro key fob.

Does that mean I will have to install same on my hub?

(Sorry I have already sort-of asked this question on the forum here FIBARO KEYFOB - Aeotec Smart Hub drivers


Yes you would need to install a driver on your hub, but I don’t know if a driver exists for the Fibaro key fob. Someone else will need to help with that question.
