Sometimes you have to change the way those little computers inside Light-O-Rama products think.  The magic happens in something we call firmware.  If you hang around enough computer geeks you’ll start slipping “firmware” into your conversations and really impress the neighbors.

Should I update my controller firmware?

If everything is working as desired with your controllers, there's no need to change a thing. If a Light-O-Rama support professional suggest updating your firmware then you really should.

Firmware sits between the software (what runs on your computer) and the hardware (the stuff you can touch and  it controls the lights and special effects.)  If everything is working fine, don’t worry about the firmware.  If a Light-O-Rama support person recommends updating your firmware, then this is the place to find it.

How do you download firmware from this website?

With most browsers Right Click the Download link and choose Save Target As... Save the file to a location you can easily find. Use the Light-O-Rama Hardware Utility to update the firmware on the appropriate device.

 

A special note about downloading and Windows 10

If you are using the Windows 10 Edge browser you might not have a 'Save Target As...' option when right clicking a link. We recommend using another browser, including Internet Explorer. Open the Windows 10 search box, enter 'Internet Explorer', it will be shown as a 'Desktop app' and that's the one to pick. Return to the Light-O-Rama website and you can now use the mouse right click 'Save Target as...'
