Some gateways will support firmware upgrades over-the-air (OTA) and have MultiSensor Gen5's firmware upgrades packaged as part of their platform. For those that don't yet support such upgrades, MultiSensor Gen5's firmware can be upgraded using Z-Stick from Aeotec and Microsoft Windows.

To upgrade your MultiSensor Gen5 using a Z-Stick or any other general Z-Wave USB Adapter:

  2. Plug the Z‐Stick controller to the USB port of your PC host.
