ZHC5010 Firmware

It is possible to update the firmware in ZHC5010 by means of "Over The Air" (OTA) device update. That means it is not required to connect these devices to a controller or a PC via cable. The firmware, in the device, can be updated directly over the Z-Wave wireless system. 

The firmware files that can be downloaded from here has file extension .OTA, in some controllers it is required that files must have file extension .HEX, in these cases, the file can just be renamed - the firmware file is a hexfile.

 

Firmware version 2.03 (Not Z-Wave Plus certified):

In order to support VERA controllers and solving the issue where the VERA controller get stucked, in the inclusion process with the message: "Purging Associations", a new firmware is released to solve this issue.

Below is a PC application to use for doing OTA firmware updates of ZHC5010 devices, the application contains (embedded) firmware version 2.03. See the guide for instructions of how to use the application.

 

NB. Do not use an USB Z-Wave Interface that are in use for a running controller, as the firmware update software will completely reset the interface!

 

Firmware version 2.02 (Not Z-Wave Plus certified):

A fault in the non-secure interface declaration (in firmware version 2.00 and 2.01) made it impossible to firmware update the device if it was not included in secure mode. This fault has been corrected in firmware version 2.02.

This firmware version will now function in both secure and non-secure installations.

 

Firmware version 2.01 has corrected a minor bug where Multilevel Switch commands sent from the Controller (or other devices) to ZHC5010 wasn't sent further to devices in the ZHC5010 device association groups. 

 

Firmware version 2.0 now supports security (S0) so that ZHC5010 is able to be included secure. 

Furthermore, it is possible to configure that Z-Wave commands sent to devices in each of the ZHC5010 associationgroups are sent non-secure in order to support non-secure devices (see configuration parameters 33 - 36).

NB. After doing an update of a ZHC5010 device to firmware version 2.x from a version 1.x, it is required to exclude the device and re-include it!

 

Below is a PC application to use for doing OTA firmware updates of ZHC5010 devices, the application contains (embedded) firmware version 2.02. See the guide for instructions of how to use the application.

 

NB. Do not use an USB Z-Wave Interface that are in use for a running controller, as the firmware update software will completely reset the interface!

 

Firmware version 1.12 (Not Z-Wave Plus certified):

This firmware version contains some enhancements that can be configured:

  • Fine-tuning of the button detection timing, see configuration parameters 28 - 32.
  • Possibility of controlling the LED's by means of standard Basic Set on/off commands, so now all Controllers/Gateways will be able to fully control the LED's (Configuration parameters 3 - 6, value 8).

Below is a PC application to use for doing OTA firmware updates of ZHC5010 devices, the application contains (embedded) firmware version 1.12. See the guide for instructions of how to use the application.

 

Firmware version 1.10 (Not Z-Wave Plus certified):

In firmware version 1.09 has there been found an issue in relation to HomeSeer network controllers with older USB network interfaces, that makes it very difficult (almost impossible) to include ZHC5010 into the controller. The issue is caused by HomeSeer that does not parse the Z-Wave Plus Network Interface Format correctly. In order to help HomeSeer users, a new firmware version 1.10 has been released to solve this issue.

Below is a PC application to use for doing OTA firmware updates of ZHC5010 devices, the application contains (embedded) firmware version 1.10. See the guide for instructions of how to use the application.

 

Firmware version 1.09 (Z-Wave Plus certified):

Newest Z-Wave Plus certified firmware, with following corrections:

There is not added any new features, only corrections of issues found by the test-house during the Z-Wave Plus re-certification test. These corrections mostly adresses issues concerning multi channel associations and Command Classes listed in the Network Interface description.

Below is a PC application to use for doing OTA firmware updates of ZHC5010 devices, the application contains (embedded) firmware version 1.09. See the guide for instructions of how to use the application.

 

Firmware version 1.05 (not yet re-certified):

Contains following enhancements and corrections:

  • Fault in dimmer-command sent to light dimmers could result in that the light was regulated very fast for some dimmer types (especially AEOTEC dimmers), it was practically impossible to regulate the light to a certain level - the fault has been corrected in this firmware version.

 

Firmware version 1.04 (not yet re-certified):

Contains following enhancements and corrections:

  • Improved event handling; it will now ensure that all pending messages will be sent to the devices in the association groups, even when new button activations (or incoming command messages) are made while sending out messages.
  • Improved handling of incoming notifications in order to better serve the proxy mode.
  • New relay modes (see configuration parameter 15 in the user manual).
  • Allow double-press central scene notification, even when the house cleaning mode is disabled.
  • Improved button driver; button double-press is now interpreted as only one event (not first a single-press and then a double press).
  • Corrected fault in that incoming button command messages did not make a correct activation of devices in the Multilevel Switch association groups.

All devices delivered from July 15. 2016 contains this firmware version.

Below is a PC application to use for doing OTA firmware updates of ZHC5010 devices, the application contains firmware version 1.04. See the guide for instructions of how to use the application.

 

Firmware version 1.03 (not yet re-certified):

Contains following corrections:

  • Central Scene Command Class is now presented correctly, only in the root device and not in the sub-devices.
  • The sequence number in the Central Scene notification is now updated correctly in order for the controller to detect duplicate scene notifications.
  • Indicator Command Class version 2 is introduced (see further description in the user manual).
  • When configuration parameters for the LEDs are changed, they will now be reflected immediately.

 

 

Firmware version 1.02 (certified):

Contains a correction in the way the relay is controlled when it is used for impulse relays (Danish: kiprelæ).

All devices delivered from May 2016 contains this firmware version.
