hey DIY is Jared with alarmgrid here today we're gonna be discussing if you can update the firmware version on the Colossus IQ panel - yes you can't update the firmware version on the closest IQ panel - now you are able to update the firmware directly from the panel itself you do have to make sure that the system is powered up and it is connected to the local Wi-Fi you are able to stretch the network for any available updates plus you are able to actually manually enter a patch tag for the specific update that you may be looking for so updating the firmware version on the quality side panel to is very essential so that it is allowing the system to be able to get new panel features even new panel functions for the system so Kostis does periodically release new firmware updates every now and then so if you are a user and you have the system you definitely want to check every now and then to see if there's new updates available so closest has released a couple of updates in the past recent months so far it's been about two of them so if the firmware updates 2.2.1 that they have released this is basically adding the option to view camera streams are due live camera streaming from the system or from the panel itself the second update is called two point 3.0 which this does add the option to be able to have facial recognition and partition support for the system now alarmgrid normally does post about the new updates that once we learn about them we do let you guys know on our website so you guys can try to keep in sync with the system and know exactly what's going on now if you're worried user and you did want to firmware update the quality panel to again as they did iterate or I did mention at the beginning of this video that you do have to make sure the panel is powered up and that it is connected to the local Wi-Fi now if it doesn't if you don't have internet installed in the home or the business that you have the system installed in you can try to update the system through the cellular network or the cellular communicator now the only way to do this is that if you have the system monitored with a certain company because the update does get pushed through what's called warm calm and the only way to do that is by having an account with alarm calm and that is through a security dealer so just contact your local monitoring company or the company that you with and try to get that update pushed now just to at least let you know if you do if you are pushing the updates through the cellular connection there are gonna be some charges behind that because it is pushing it through to say the data so you do want to keep that in mind when you are trying to update the closest I keep animal - so if you were a user and you did want to update the koalas IQ panel - you will follow these simple steps so on the top of the page on the top of the menu or the top of the main screen you're going to tap the small gray bar and you're gonna press settings and then you're gonna press advanced settings you're typing the installer code for the system the default installer code is 1 1 1 1 and then you're gonna press upgrade software on the bottom and you're going to see a couple of options right here so the first option is upgrade using a network so if you just wanted to check for new updates you could just tap this and it's going to start looking for a new update you are able to update koalas using an SD card and for this video I'm not going to jump into that but that is an option for you to be able to do that and the third is by entering a specific patch tag for the update now it is recommended to update this system with a patch tag reason being is because when you're entering a patch tag for that update you know exactly what update you're pushing to your system so for example the update that I did mention earlier which was two point three point oh right the patch tag for that update was IQ panel two point three point oh so when you if I were to type that in right now into patch tag it will look for that specific updates it will look for that update two point three point oh so to get the if you're looking for a specific update for the system you can find it in closest on the koalas website or you can contact your local security dealer and they should be able to provide you the actual name of the patch tag so once they do provide that to you to in order to be able to update the system through the patch tag what you're going to do is you're going to tap patch tag and it's going to bring up a keyboard and you know obviously the window to type it in so if you were looking for the two point three point oh you're just gonna type in IQ panel two point three point O once you type that in you're gonna tap ok and it'll take you back to the screen so to actually run the update you're going to press upgrade using network so once that once you tap that it's going to go through this process the system will reboot it is going to take several minutes for the system to update so dude just be a little bit patient with it and do not touch the screen when it's updating you don't want to try to arm it you don't want to do anything you want to let it update so wallace updating there you are gonna get a window that does say applying patch and once that is done it's going to take you back to the main menu so once you have confirmed that the update was successfully pushed and you know everything then you're basically just going to jump in you're gonna check the different settings that should have been pushed to the panel and just make sure everything is working correctly and that is how you update the firmware version for the closest IQ Pamela -
