(SBB) Firmware Update

It is possible to update the firmware for Smart By Bond devices in two ways. During the initial setup, a firmware update is performed before you connect to WiFi. A firmware update is performed through the Bond Home application when the SBB device is connected to WiFi and the Bond server.

  2. If you already have a BOND account, simply log in and continue to the next step.
    1. If you do not have a BOND account press “Create account” and enter your name, email, and a password.  You need Internet access to create an account or log into the Bond Home application.  If only updating firmware, internet access is not required starting at step 3.
