IMPORTANT - Please make sure that the model number (located on the back) of the NanoMote Quad is the ZWA003 before downloading and performing the update process.

As a part of our Gen5 range of products, NanoMote Quad is firmware upgradable. Some gateways will support firmware upgrades over-the-air (OTA) and have NanoMote Quads firmware upgrades packaged as part of their platform. For those that don't yet support such upgrades, NanoMote Quad's firmware can be upgraded using Z-Stick from Aeotec (or any other Z-Wave compliant Z-Wave USB Adapters from any manufacturer) with Microsoft Windows XP/7/8/10.

Firmware change log V1.02

  1. Fix problem with Multilevel Class

Requirements for update.

  1. Z-Wave USB Adapter (ie. Z-Stick Lite, Z-Stick S2, Z-Stick Gen5, UZB1, SmartStick+, or any other Z-Wave Adapter that conforms to Z-Wave standards).
  2. Windows OS (XP, 7, 8, or 10).

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

  1. If your NanoMote Quad is already part of a Z-Wave network, please remove it from that network. Your NanoMote Quad manual touches on this and your Z-Wave gateway's / hub's user manual will provide more specific information. Skip to step 3 if your NanoMote Quad is part of a Z-Stick controlled Z-Wave network already.
  2. Plug the Z‐Stick controller to the USB port of your PC host.
  3. Download the firmware that corresponds to the version of your NanoMote Quad.

    : downloading and activating the wrong firmware will brick your NanoMote and render it broken. Bricking is not covered by warranty.
