          "Cmd": "DoFactoryReset",

          "DeviceID": "_MindConnect_ID_"




      The label “_MindConnect_ID_” has to be replaced with the ID which is located on the label of the MindConnect Box. The number is right below the article number.

      Put it on a USB stick and plug the stick in the MindConnect
