Maybe Andy himself will chime in here. I chose to post here though I could have messaged Andy directly, I thought it would be better to have the info here in the forums for other Maxwell Mesh users.
On the Maxwell Mesh Monitor web page, there is a button that says reset node(s) to factory state. Is that the state pre Maxwell Mesh install, ala Linksys firmware (in my case)? Or if this button is clicked does it result in a fresh Maxwell Mesh firmware state as when shipped to me?
