Last night I accidentally deleted 2 smart bulbs from my home automation thing, and it turns out you need 1st party hardware to reset this particular brand of bulb once it’s been paired.

But then I learned about a dodgy python script that uses your USB RF dongle to basically brute force nearby bulbs and factory reset them, which I was able to successfully use after a few tries.

Cyberpunk future folks. Right here, right now.
