We are now shipping ALS tags with new firmware (version 2.7) with below improvements:

  • When "buffer (transmit) multiple data point at a time" option is enabled, there can be corruption of locally stored data points (data are locally stored while tag is out of range or tag manager is offline.) This bug has been fixed. Because of this bug, for ALS tags shipped on or before June 10, 2019, please do not enable the option. The option has been automatically turned off on most of affected ALS tags that are currently online. 
  • Data upload speed is increased, to facilitate the use case when many tags need to upload. 

Unfortunately the firmware cannot be delivered remotely. If you need to receive these update, please mail the tags back, we will update them and ship to you free of charge. Please ship to
