How Do I Check the Firmware Version for My Resideo Tuxedo?
You can check the firmware version for your Resideo Tuxedo by clicking the settings icon (the gear) on the main keypad screen and then choosing System Info. The current firmware version for the keypad will be displayed on the screen. You can then return to the home screen for the Tuxedo.
The Tuxedo receives periodic firmware updates from AlarmNet to add new features and improve overall device performance. If you aren't sure which firmware version the keypad is on, then you might check the firmware to find out. The firmware version for a Tuxedo is also referred to as the software version. The terms are often used interchangeably, so don't be confused if you hear someone referring to the Tuxedo Firmware Version as the Tuxedo Software Version.
Please note that firmware updates for the Tuxedo are pushed down to the keypad automatically. This is done over-the-air (OTA), with no corresponding action being required by the end user. In order for this to occur, the Tuxedo must be connected to a local WIFI network, and it must have the Enable Remote Upgrade feature turned ON. Both the VISTA System and the Tuxedo Keypad must be in a ready state to receive updates. More information on updating the Tuxedo firmware can be found in this helpful FAQ.
Complete the following steps to check the firmware version for your Resideo Tuxedo Keypad:
1. Access System Info. Start from the main screen of the Tuxedo. Click the settings icon (the gear) at the bottom of the screen. Then choose System Info. You will be taken to the System Info screen.
2. Note the Software Version. The software version will be displayed on the left-hand side of the screen. This is effectively known as the firmware version. You may want to write this information down for easy access later. The System Info Menu is also where you can turn the Enable Remote Upgrade feature ON or OFF to have automatic software updates pushed down to the Tuxedo.
3. Return home. Click the picture of the house in the upper-right corner to return to the home screen.
