Over-The-Air mcOS Updates

mcOTA & mcDongle


Wireless Updates

mcOTA is a desktop application used in conjunction with the mcDongle to facilitate over-the-air mcOS updates to mcDevices and mcGateways. These updates often provide increased functionality and bug fixes to mcOS (the device’s onboard operating system) allowing for the continuous improvement of the mcThings platform.

mcOTA Over-The-Air mcOS Updates


Updating the mcOS on your mcDevice requires both the mcDongle (hardware) and the mcOTA desktop application working in tandem. Once you have the application installed on your computer and the mcDongle connected via micro USB (Data), you can quickly and easily update your devices and gateways to the latest version of their mcOS releases. Through this connection, you can also easily obtain the current version of mcOS running on your devices, as well as access the bootloader version, available upload space and device information. In addition to this, you can also erase the device’s data store and existing mcScripts.
