Firmware update

It is always recommended to keep your Ruuvi Gateway up-to-date.

Your firmware version and update availability will be checked on Firmware update page during the configuration process. If an update is available you will be offered to install it from the default location (recommended).

You can alternatively choose your own update location manually by checking Specify a URL from where updates should be requested under advanced.

Choose your preferred method and select Update to begin the firmware update process. Alternatively you will be able to skip this step by choosing Next.

Firmware update process takes a few minutes and you will see the progress status on screen. It’s important to make sure your Ruuvi Gateway stays powered during this time.

Automatic updates

Your Ruuvi Gateway has an ability to check and install new firmware updates automatically using a scheduler. We recommend choosing Auto update that accepts new versions to be installed 2 weeks after release date.

Advanced users can also choose a special beta-tester mode, which accepts new firmware versions to be automatically installed as soon as they become available.

Choosing Manual updates only disables automatic firmware updates for your gateway.

Automatic update scheduler allows you to determine when you wish for automatic updates to be fetched and installed. You will be able to schedule updates to be checked by:


Advanced Server

Ruuvi Gateway connects to Ruuvi cloud by default. However, you will be able to configure to use a HTTP or MQTT server to route your nearby sensors’ data to a custom location instead.

Choose Custom server under Advanced to see configuration options as follows.

HTTP Server

Server address

Password (optional)

MQTT Server
