UpBlink Firmware

Occasionally CamDo will release updates for UpBlink to improve performance as well as unlock additional features. To determine what your firmware version is, connect to UpBlink's WiFi Access Point and navigate to the UI address (http://10.0.0.5:5000). Then look at the top of the screen. You should see something that looks like this.

Check to make sure that the version number beside UPBLINK: corresponds to the latest below.
The letter inside the brackets corresponds to a hardware version number.

If your UpBlink does not match the latest UpBlink firmware available, download the latest UpBlink firmware by clicking one of the links above. Then follow the steps outlined below or in the UpBlink User Manual to update your UpBlink.

If your UpBlink is deployed out in the field, we have a list of the changes between firmware versions at the bottom of the page that can be used to determine if a newest stable or beta firmware update requires retrieving the camera.

How to update the UpBlink firmware

  1. Download the latest UpBlink Firmware .zip File and transfer it to a USB flash drive's root folder. The USB flash drive must be using the FAT32 file saving format (typically the default format for USB drives 32GB or less). Do not unzip the UpBlink firmware file.

  2. Connect the flash drive to the USB port of UpBlink.

  3. With UpBlink powered from the microUSB power port, hold the WiFi button on the top of the controller until the LED starts flashing green once per second. If the LED flashes yellow, wait for the UpBlink to stop flashing and hold the button again until the LED flashes green once per second.

  4. UpBlink will flash the LED green once per second while searching the USB port for the update file. When the firmware update file is found, the LED will flash Magenta while the firmware is updating. The firmware update may take a few minutes to complete.

    • UpBlink will delete the firmware file from the USB stick after the firmware update. UpBlink will skip the firmware update procedure and the file will remain on the USB stick if UpBlink cannot locate the update file on the USB flash drive. UpBlink will not be able to read the file if the update filename has been changed or not saved to the root folder. The LED remains lit Red when UpBlink has failed the firmware update procedure. The failure indication LED will remain lit until another function triggers the LED. If you have ongoing issues please contact CamDo customer support.
  1. Once the LED flashes complete, connect to UpBlink's WiFi and navigate to the UpBlink UI page http://10.0.0.5:5000 to verify the update.

Note: The USB flash drive must be using the FAT32 file format to be able to perform the UpBlink firmware update and Blink does not support partitioned drives or other formats. The FAT32 file saving format is the default format for PC and used with most USB flash drives under 32GB. Large capacity flash drives might be using the exFAT format which is not compatible with UpBlink. If you are using a MAC, the following link explains how to format a USB flash drive to FAT32.

If the red LED continues to occur during the firmware update process, please contact CamDo customer support.
