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.
Access the latest features via our beta releases. Note these releases potentially have bugs and are not fully supported. But if you find a bug, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org - that's one of the reasons we release beta firmware. Download the latest stable release above if you are not keen on testing the new features.
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.

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.
