Updating your firmware for Inovelli Devices has never been easier when using Hubitat. In this article, we will talk you through how to use this tool.
Please proceed at your own risk. Bricked switches due to user error will not be replaced nor refunded. If you'd like to mail in your switch to have us do it for you, we're happy to do so.
Updating the firmware is a fairly safe & fool proof procedure with Z-Wave. Please double check you are updating the correct device with the appropriate model number. Do not interrupt power to the device while the update is taking place.
Things you will need
- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/djdizzyd/hubitat/master/Drivers/Z-Wave-Firmware-Updater/zwaveBinaryUpdater.groovy (new)(allows targets 0 and 1 to be updated)
- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/djdizzyd/hubitat/master/Drivers/Z-Wave-Firmware-Updater/zwaveFirmwareUpdater.groovy (old)
Check the Downloads section of the KB for file link locations. If you right click on the link and choose "Copy link address" then you can use that directly in the Z-Wave updater tool.
In your Hubitat Elevation, navigate to the Drivers Code Section.
Click on New Driver.
Paste the Z-Wave Firmware Updater Tool URL (up above in the "Things you will need" section) in the box and click Import. It will ask if you want to override the current code. Click ok.
Once the code loads in the driver box, click save.
Navigate back to your Drivers Code page and you will see the new driver listed. (Probably at the bottom of the list since it starts with Z.)
Go to your list of devices and find the device you want to update the firmware for. In this example we will use an Ilumin RGBW bulb.
Scroll down to the Device Information section. You will find the Type * where it has your current driver listed. Open the dropdown and find your Z-Wave Firmware Update driver. (It is likely all the way at the bottom.) Select the Z-Wave Firmware Update driver and click Save Device.
Your screen will refresh and the box on the far right will say Update Firmware. In the firmwareUrl: box paste the URL you need from above (obtained in the "Firmware Location" section above). Once the URL is there, click the Gray Update Firmware box directly above the URL. The Current States section will begin to update and you will see a percentage indicator. It will say 100% complete when the device is done updating. We have seen the update process take somewhere between 3 and 40 minutes per unit. For better performance, update your device closer to the hub.
Once the device has completed updating, change your Device Driver back to your old driver, click Save Device and you are all set! 👍 Enjoy your new firmware!
