Incorrect Hub User Name or Password During Hub Setup

 
 

When configuring your Insteon Hub, you may encounter an alert informing you that the user name or password provided is incorrect. There are several reasons why this may occur.

  • The user name or password was mistyped when entering the Hub credentials manually.
     
  • The user name or password was changed from the default credentials printed on the bottom of the Hub (This should only happen if the Hub in question has been previously configured and should not be encountered with a new-out-of-the-box Hub). If you believe this to be the case, attempt a network reset to reset the Hub user name and password and attempt setup again. If you are not the original owner of your Insteon Hub, it would also be advisable to perform a factory reset.
     
  • The QR Code containing the Hub user name and password does not match the credentials stored on the Hub. If you believe this to be the case, first attempt a network reset by following the instructions in this article. If you still encounter the user name or password alert, contact Insteon Support.
