Yesterday we pushed our new build of the Lockitron firmware (version 1411004335). This is a mandatory update for all devices and will also result in an update to Lockitron’s Bluetooth firmware (a separate piece of software).
You can now view what version of firmware your Lockitron is on from the Settings page in the web dashboard. You can request to reflash your Lockitron’s firmware if it seems to be on a previous version of the firmware. See our support documentation for more information.
Although you shouldn’t have to, you may need to remove and replace a battery if your Lockitron becomes non-responsive for more than 5 minutes.
This update includes:
- Support for Lockitron’s new, more secure, more robust Bluetooth protocol (which additionally will be leveraged for Sense)
- Stability fixes for when Bluetooth becomes unresponsive
- Fixes for “stuck” firmware update percentages
This update requires that you update to the latest version of the iOS (2.2.1) and Android (2.1.5) to connect via our Bluetooth protocol. WiFi connectivity is unchanged by this update.
