How To Update Firmware On AVTECH Devices

You may update the firmware on your Room Alert or TemPageR using AVTECH’s Device Discovery utility or Device ManageR software.

Before You Begin

Before you begin, download the most recent version of your unit’s firmware from your account at GoToMyDevices.com. This FAQ shows you how: How to Download Firmware & Software from GoToMyDevices.com.

The firmware update file should download with a .upd extension. If your file downloads with a .zip extension, do not extract the contents; instead, please try the download again from a different browser so that you get the file in the .upd format. (If you don’t have access to a different browser, you may rename the extension of the .zip file to .upd.)

It’s also best to use the most current version of Device ManageR or Device Discovery, which are available through your account at GoToMyDevices.com as well.
