- Can I control my fan through the kill switch?
No, the kill switch is designed to cut power to the Wi-Fi hub in cas of an emergency. This switch does not control the fan functionality.
- Why can I activate the fan on my phone but another person can’t?

- Is there a way to factory reset the hub without getting in the attic?
Yes, you can factory reset through the “Diagnostics” page in the QuietCool app.
- What is the difference between a soft reset and a factory reset?A soft reset is simply power-cycling the hub to restart. This fixes many connectivity issues that may arise. A factory reset is used when you are changing the in-home Wi-Fi router and need to re-setup the hub to another Wi-Fi network. This will reset all settings and put the hub back to it’s out-of-box settings.
