  • Hi Antonio,

    So just to confirm, if I upgrade all my v6 transceivers to the latest firmware, they will no longer be triggered by my LV5?

    Regards, Ian
  • Hi Ian,

    I'm not Antonio, but I know that the very latest firmware version uses the "A" protocol and hence becomes incompatible with the LV5 (and V5).
  • Hi @ipollen

    The answer is a yes.
    If you need to use V5 or LV5, your V6 / V6 II / V6 IIs / RF60 / RF60X must be running on the legacy "1" firmware protocol.

    Thank you.

    Where is the download link for the latest firmware update for the V6. I'm still using version 2.1.001. I see V61.A.003 listed in the Firmware release notes (Released on 13 Nov 2018) but there is no download link for it under firmware updates for the V6.
  • Please download the firmware updater here,
