Installing Updates

Please follow the below instructions for updating your Miniserver

More about installing updates

Installing and Updating

The configuration software is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. Whilst Loxone Config will run on XP please note this is no longer actively maintained and supported.
Before updating the Miniserver, please make sure you have the latest version of the configuration software installed. You can use our installation instructions page to help you when installing Loxone Config.

We recommend that the person who performed the installation and configured the Miniserver also performs any updates. This is because before the update is started, the program should be loaded from the Miniserver and saved locally so that any latest user changes (lighting scenes etc.) are preserved.

Update using the configuration software

Step 1: Connect to the Miniserver

Start the configuration software and connect to the Miniserver.

Step 2: Miniserver Firmware Update

Select the "Maintenance" tab and click on "Miniserver Firmware Update". This opens a window called "Loxone Miniserver Firmware Update".

Step 3: Backup options

You can now choose whether or not the Miniserver keeps the existing files.
When updating the Miniserver, we recommend selecting the box "Proceed with update even if the Miniserver already has the current firmware version". 

Step 4: Install the update

Click on "Install update" to start the updating process. Any extensions that are connected to the Miniserver and flashing green will also have the update applied to them. This is an important point to note: Only extensions that are added into the program the Miniserver is running will be updated!

After the update, the Miniserver reboots automatically.
You can observe the output in the monitor window.

Update by changing the Micro SD card

It's possible to install the latest firmware for the Loxone Miniserver from an SD card. This enables you to keep your Miniserver up to date even without a direct network connection, and make sure you benefit from any new features. SD cards with the current firmware are available in our online shop.

Device versions

Once you have updated the Miniserver and extensions you want to check that the update was done correctly. There are two ways to do this, Search and Device status.

Search

If you click on the Miniserver tab in Loxone Config and then click Search you can observe the version numbers in the search window.

Device status

Or you can go to the Miniserver tab in Loxone Config and click on Device status (you need to be connected to the Miniserver you wish to view the information of). This will return information about every device including connected peripherals such as 1-Wire sensors and EnOcean devices.
