Firmware update remotely

I agree with @carverofchoice’s answer (not that he needs my affirmation), and I imagine there are situations where someone would want to do that.

Whenever possible, I like having relatively easy physical access to whatever device I’m working on, just in case something goes wrong. (How am I going to see an otherwise incommunicado device’s status light blinking at me if I’m in another state?) This is why I still haven’t updated the Video Doorbell v2 firmware, because I was away from home at the time it was released, and I’m glad that I haven’t attempted that one because of the problems reported with it. :man_shrugging:

Yeah, it’s possible. You just get to decide for yourself what the potential pitfalls might be and what’s an acceptable level of risk for you—but that same thing can be said for many situations in life, not just Wyze firmware updates. :upside_down_face:
