Upload firmware (except ESPHome)
Uploading a custom device firmware file in .bin format to the platform.
Delete firmware (except ESPHome)
Removing the firmware file from the platform.
For ESPHome: Changing the firmware code. After editing, do not forget to collect new versions of Test and Production firmware.
For Custom firmware: Uploading a new firmware version to the platform.
Choosing the method of pairing the device with the mobile app:
- Wi-Fi - standard option with transferring Wi-Fi network access parameters to the device;
- No Wi-Fi – for GSM devices that use mobile Internet;
- Others – for devices that do not support the standard pairing. Don't forget to offer instructions to users.
Additionally - the ability to offer users their own instructions for linking a device to a mobile application instead of the one used in 2Smart Cloud by default.
Ability to test new firmware versions on a limited number of devices.
Upload your product firmware update and test the changes before publishing. Only those users who have agreed to be your assistants in testing will receive the new version. They need to enable Staging mode on the device settings screen in the 2Smart Cloud mobile app.
