Reset unifi ap mini

How do you reset a unifi mini to factory defaults?

I have tried the reset button on the unit, on a power injector and it never resets the unit to factory.

Re: Reset unifi ap mini

You should be able to issue the ssh command " restore-default" same as with all other UniFi models.
You'll need an SSH client like Putty. Then you have to find the AP's IP, usually by looking at the leases on your DHCP server. You also need to know the admin name and password used when adopting the AP originally.

I've noticed that paper-clipping doesn't seem to always work but the ssh command does without fail.

Of course if you've got it under management of a UniFi controller you can simply use the option "Forget this AP". I believe that resets it to defaults also.
