Gosund Smart Plug Reset Instructions

You may need to reset your Gosund Smart Plug to restore proper operation should it stop responding to Alexa or Google Home commands coming from either your smart speaker or the Gosund or Alexa apps. Or, maybe you want to change the WiFi network and / or password to which this plug connects.  In either case, a reset is needed.  So read on for Gosund smart plug reset instructions.





Caution Before Gosund Smart Plug Reset

  • Note that resetting this plug removes the saved WiFi network info from the its internal memory.
  • If your smart plug is linked to your WiFi and Gosund account, then resetting also removes the plug from that account.  So, if you’re resetting to get the plug ready to sell, we recommend this procedure.  Again, resetting not only clears out the plug’s memory, but also deletes it from your Gosund account.
  • Once reset, this smart plug will no longer connect to your WiFi network.  Thus, you will no longer be able to control it remotely or from your smart phone or tablet.  To restore full operation, you must set up the plug again.
  • If you registered this plug in the Alexa app prior to resetting it, then that device entry will no longer work with your speakers afterwards.  To use this plug with your Alexa Echo speakers again, remove its device entry from the devices list in the Alexa app, and then add the plug as a new device again.  The same is true if you set up this plug in the Google Home app before resetting it, although we found that when you reset the plug while it’s connected to the internet, that the Google Home registration goes away automatically after reset.  But it may not, so do check, and set up the plug again if you need to.
