Cloudtrax devices can be flashed from Cloudrobot
We are happy to announce, that we added preliminary support for device flashing after successful synchronization from Cloudtrax. The idea is following:
You can synchronize your networks from your Cloudtrax dashboard by pressing the green Synchronize... button in Cloudtrax > Import config... This step will copy all current data from Cloudtrax to Meshrobot, but will not create those networks in the dashboard. To do so, please select the network you want to import and click the grey Import button on the right side.
When you click the button, settings for this particular network will be transferred to dashboard and new network will appear in your Networks list. Please note, that if you had already added network with the same name, the network will be duplicated and the settings will be transferred to duplicate network, rather than to overwrite your current settings. This may lead to a situation when not all of your access points would be transferred, as those with already already added MAC addresses will be skipped.
After successful import a new red button will be shown labeled Reflash. When you click it, we will instruct Cloudtrax to re-flash the firmware in all nodes that belong to this network to new firmware. After successful refresh, the devices will stop checking in to the Cloudtrax console and will start to check in to Cloudrobot dashboard after some 10-15 minutes. Please note, that there is not an automated way how to revert the firmware back to Open-Mesh one other than manual reflash process as described in their support website.
- The process does not work for A40/A60 devices but will be aded soon.
- Although the all network import from the Cloudtrax transfers all the configuration data, there is a bunch of limitations when importing actual network to a Cloudrobot dashboard. Only some basic settings will be transferred now, but we are working on improving the feature set.
- The flashing process seems not working with meshing nodes. This will be addressed later, now we recommend to try this feature only on All-wired networks.
