Now navigate back to System>>THIS DEVICE>> General Properties, and then click Edit. 6. Select the zone for this BIG-IQ, then click Update, then click Update again to confirm. 7. When the zone change completes, make sure to make no other changes to the BIG-IQ properties and click Cancel. The zone change is retained for the BIG-IQ.
