There are two ways to update the edge bluetooth firmware, manually uploading a file or via the web UI. Use manual firmware updates when a connection to the internet and BlueCats Cloud is not available.
Using Web Interface
This requires the edge to be internet connected which you can do by configuring the WIFI as described in the getting started doc.
Then navigate to
Connect and Manage. If the ‘Device Register Status’ is ‘Registered’ then the edge device is successfully connected with the Bluecats cloud services. If the status is ‘Invalid’ or you need to re-register the device, refer registering the device.
Once registered in bluecats cloud, click
Update button on the
Update to Latest BLE Module Firmware section to update the edge BLE module to the latest firmware.
