Good afternoon. I think many of you are aware that Wyze Labs is an American company based in Seattle that specializes in low cost smart home products and wireless cameras. I've read a lot of Wyze Labs reviews here , but never found an answer to my question. The current problem I'm having, which Wyze Labs can't seem to solve, is that after a recent 10 minute power outage, only one switch in my house came back online out of 3. After extensive troubleshooting, including removing devices and trying to add them back, they all failed.

Restore gadgets to Windows Sidebar

If you accidentally remove gadgets from Windows Sidebar in Windows Vista, you can restore them.

To restore the original gadgets that came with Sidebar:
  1. Right-click the sidebar, and then click Properties.
  2. In the Sidebar Properties window, click Restore gadgets installed with Windows.

To restore gadgets to Sidebar that you downloaded from Windows Live Gallery:
  1. Browse or search Gallery to find the gadget that you want.
  2. Download and reinstall the gadget. After you install a Sidebar gadget, it's automatically added to Sidebar.

To install a new gadget, depending on the type of gadget, click Add, Download, or Buy, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
