Before you update

Please make sure you download the correct Z-Wave Frequency and begin the update with the sensor as close as 10ft / 3m distance to your hub.

Update with an existing Z-Wave hub

In order to use the GBL update files, your Z-Wave gateway must support OTA firmware update. If supported, follow the steps from your Z-Wave Gateway to firmware update your sensor.

Update using a Z-Wave USB Adapter

If your software does not support .GBL files yet, you can use PC Controller 5 (connected to any standard Z-Wave USB Adapter) by SiLabs to firmware update with GBL files. This software is a Windows exclusive.

You can find that PC Controller 5 here through Simplicity Studio: SiLabs Simplicity Studio
