If the update fails, the update process is intrerrupted or the AirID doesn't start anymore, go to Step 2 and repeat the process.

In rare cases, especially when updating from a very old firmware version it is possible that all Bluetooth pairing information is lost. In this case it could be necessary to remove the AirID® from all devices and pair them again.

Our recommended steps:

  1. Turn off the Bluetooth connection on your AirID Connection → OFF
  2. Remove the AirID from the Bluetooth connected device list on your device Bluetooth- > AirID "SerialNumber" - > Remove device
  3. Turn on the Bluetooth connection on your AirID
  4. Pair the AirID with your device
