Generic SentryX/Wam-X Firmware Upgrade Instructions

Step 1. You must download or have the CircuitWerkes firmware loader tool from our Website. You must also have the firmware files for your product. The firmware files are typically zipped up together in one file. It's OK if the version numbers don't match as long as the two files are from our original zip file.

The firmware loader utility is the same for all non-streaming SentryX products, including the WAM-2. You do not need to download multiple copies of the loader tool. The only exception is for the 32-bit streaming versions which use a different firmware loader tool. Install the firmware loader tool on your PC.

Step 2. Run the FW loader tool and select the DFF file that you downloaded for your product.

Step 3. Set the IP address of your product in the loader tool and upload the DFF file to your unit.

Step 4. Using a browser, log into ###.###.###.###/imageflash If you’re using a port other than 80, it would look like this: ###.###.###.###:PORT#/imageflash

Step 5. Login as Admin and use the administrator code that you have set. Default = 12345678.

Step 6. Click the "choose" button and browse to find the .BIN file that you will be uploading.

Step 7. Click “Upload” to send the new BIN to the product.

Step 8. Reset your product to factory defaults. If using the hardware reset, do it at least 2x. Each time you reset the unit, wait, with power applied, for 10 seconds before removing power for the next reset. The hardware reset is done by removing the top cover and shorting the reset pins while powering up the board. Reset pins are found near the front panel LEDs.

Step 9. Import/Upload your configuration data back to the unit and save the changes.

Note that connectivity settings and passwords have to be done manually, one at a time.
