With the latest firmware update (v 1.9.2), we’re bringing you 30% more battery life and some bug fixes. This means that a beacon running on default settings (350ms interval and Tx Power set to 3) and using power saving mode for 12 hours a day will last up to 84 months (that’s 7 years!).
The update is available OTA (over the air) to all Kontakt.io Beacon Pros. Please update your devices to the latest version. If you don’t know how, please follow this tutorialHow to check and upgrade the firmware of your Kontakt.io beacons.
