It's necessary to have your email registered into the system to receive the security code. Make sure you are using the same email that was used during the first setup.

Sometimes you find a model with a reset button available under the unit back cover; if that's the case just press and hold the button for 20 seconds and power the device. It will reset the password to factory default.

And that's it. Now you can login again 🙂
