You can make a manual software and firmware update request at any time (see Sending Requests to the Network Module), or define that automatic updates are in use and, if they are, at which time of the day they will be updated. See Editing the Locking System Settings.
When automatic software and firmware updated are in use, the operating system on the Net Bridge and the firmware on the bus devices are automatically downloaded over the Internet. The update takes place in two phases:
The operating system and firmware on the Net Bridge are updated first.
Net Bridge checks if there are software updates on the server, upon startup and on seven days interval.
If a software update is found, Net Bridge immediately downloads the update. However, the software installation takes place automatically according to the locking system settings, within three hours of the set Update time.
The firmware on the bus devices is updated next.
The operating system update on the Net Bridge is indicated by:
SERVER CONN blinks orange when the software is being downloaded from the server. This may take several minutes.
SYSTEM STATUS, SERVER CONN and USB leds blink orange in the same time when the software update on the Net Bridge is in progress.
Do not switch off Net Bridge while the software update is in progress. If you interrupt the update process, the operating system will not be able to start again, and the Net Bridge cannot be recovered on the site.
During the update process, Net Bridge and its bus devices are re-booted several times.
Possibly active calendar controls temporarily stop operating during the re-boots.
The operating system update process ends when the Net Bridge is re-started, and FUNC, SYSTEM STATUS, RS-485 STATUS and SERVER CONN leds are illuminated constant green.
If there are bus devices on the bus that are undergoing a firmware update:
- On the Net Bridge, FUNC and RS-485 STATUS leds blink orange.The firmware update process ends when the FUNC, SYSTEM STATUS, RS-485 STATUS and SERVER CONN leds on the NetBridge are illuminated constant green.
- On the Hot Spot, all three leds are illuminated green, or are illuminated green one by one from top to bottom.
- On the Door Module, DEVICE, BRIDGE and SERVER leds are illuminated green one by one from top to bottom.
Do not switch off Net Bridge or any bus device while the firmware update is in progress. If you interrupt the update process, the bus device will not be able to start again, and it cannot be recovered on the site.
