Firmware R070 has been released
« on: February 11, 2015, 05:58:47 am »
You can now upgrade the Almond+ to firmware R070. Please update using the LCD UI if you've installed R069 or later. Instructions can be found here - http://wiki.securifi.com/index.php?title=How_to_upgrade_the_Firmware_-_Almond%2B_2014

This is a major release based on R069. This is also the first non-Beta release firmware with automation support via our rules UI. Note that not all sensor types are supported in this release. A refresh of the web UI will be needed once youíve installed this firmware, or itíll show up garbled.
