Eliminate Manual Upgrades With Over-the-Air Firmware

Eliminate Manual Upgrades With Over-the-Air Firmware

Over-the-Air (OTA) upgrades are the wireless transmission of software updates. Software is ever-improving and, thus, ever-expiring. Over time, sensor software naturally deteriorates due to environmental conditions, updated user preferences, software bugs, and more. It is crucial to regularly update software to ensure sensors are collecting the most accurate data possible.

Without OTA capability, sensors must receive manual upgrades or be replaced entirely. Regularly replacing devices with each software upgrade is detrimental to cost control. Likewise, manual upgrades are cumbersome as each sensor must be physically connected to a computer and individually reprogrammed. This forces devices to be idle for an extended period when they could be performing.

Sensors are designed to operate in remote locations under minimal supervision. Manual updates contradict sensors’ low-maintenance design and make software upgrades inconvenient and inefficient.

The Power of Over-the-Air Software Updates

Over-the-air firmware updates can rectify software issues without the need to physically upgrade or replace hardware. OTA software updates occur automatically from a sensor’s remote location and do not require the sensor to be taken out of commission to receive those updates. This ensures that sensors are collecting accurate data as software is continuously improved.

Product behavior, software features, and infrastructure can also be updated across fleets of devices. Users no longer have to spend time on manual upgrades, which makes OTA technology a more efficient and scalable solution.

Automatic OTA Software Updates

Devices update automatically via a Wi-Fi connection, making environmental monitoring software updates more streamlined than ever before.

No Performance Disruptions

Sensors remain fully functioning and interactive during OTA software updates, continuously monitoring and recording real-time data.

100% Secure

In partnership with the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, SensoScientific utilizes FIPS compliant, bank-grade security to provide fully encrypted software updates.

No Manual Upgrades

There’s no need to physically reprogram devices one by one or send them out for service. Over-the-air firmware allows devices to update via a Wi-Fi connection. Manual upgrades force devices to be idle for an extended period, which could lead to missing important data. SensoScientific OTA sensors continuously record real-time data and remain fully functional during upgrades.

Scalable and Cost-Efficient

Update multiple devices at once and eliminate time-consuming labor toward manual upgrades. Over-the-air firmware allows fleets of sensors to upgrade with no downtime. Eliminate the need to perform time-consuming manual upgrades, send devices out for service, or replace devices altogether. OTA software updates protect your bottom line and phase out costly upgrades.

Expand Product Life Span

OTA firmware updates rectify software issues without the need to physically upgrade or replace the hardware. Developers deploy new updates continuously to service consumers’ ever-growing needs. Bugs are more easily repaired and features are tested and changed to accommodate the user experience. Device software is kept up-to-date even after purchase, lengthening the sensor life span.

Future-Proof Your Monitoring System

SensoScientific over-the-air firmware makes software updates for sensors more streamlined than ever before. Product behavior, software features, and infrastructure are improved across multiple units through the SensoScientific cloud.

Automatic upgrades occur in a matter of minutes while simultaneously optimizing field time as devices remain in their remote location. There is no need for manual software updates or hardware replacements, making OTA a scalable and efficient solution to temperature monitoring.

Devices upgrade firmware automatically while maintaining high-quality performance. Whereas most devices experience downtime during software updates, SensoScientific sensors are fully functioning and interactive while continuously recording real-time data.
