This article covers the step-by-step instructions on how to factory reset the ZKTeco S922 Time and Attendance Terminal. This factory reset process is especially useful for solving the issue of a locked Admin.

  1. To factory reset the device, first connect the device to your network and connect the device to your chosen software.
