Zigbee becomes more and more reliable

25. May 2010

The newest version of the software (v7.2.2) and the latest firmwares for the controllers, touch panels and remotes allows to keep the Zigbee connection longer than 30 sec. It was extended to 5 days. This allows a faster control via Zigbee than before (no delay for reconnection to the system). Furthermore there is a reconnect function for Zigbee connection available. So the Zigbee remote can be reconnected manually when you change the area (“kind of manual roaming”).

The new firmware update (v1.01 Build 26) for the ZRP-6 improves the accuracy of IR code output. Some devices (Humax HD Fox for instance) had an issue with the reliability of executing the IR commands. This is fixed now.

The Technical Bulletin (Zigbee/ZM-24 Tranceiver Module Installation) for the correct installation of the Zigbee communication was upgraded. Please beware of that. It prevents lots of little mistakes which can appear.
