Firmware upgrade of Xtralis equipment
There are two ways to update Xtralis devices, either with the Xchange2 or with the AdProclient software and downloading the firmware
With the Xchange2 software we can update the Xtralis devices, to do this we first download the firmware we want from the software, either from the iFTGateway, iFT or eFT:
Once downloaded in the Upgrade section we select our equipment, the version we want to load and start the upgrade:
The first thing to do is to download the appropriate firmware for each terminal from the https://www.visiotechsecurity.com/ website in the product downloads tab.
Once downloaded and from the AdPro we will select our firmware file and start the update:
Either of the two methods can be used to update the devices, but in certain cases it will be essential to use the second one, through the AdPro, as for example if our device has a very old version (the Xchange2 will give us an error) or because we have no connection to the Xtralis server through Xchange2 and, therefore, we cannot download the firmware.
Installing a SIP 4.X Firmware (starting from a 3200 Firmware) into the X-Security 3211 Series
The necessary steps to install a SIP firmware in a X-Security Video-intercom, 3211 series are presented in the following article.
This procedure concerns devices XS-V3211E and XS-3211E-MB4.

Check that the Video door phone has the version V3.200.0012001.0. (If not, please install it first).
1 – FIRST STEP
First install 1_FIRMWARE – 3211.bin
The device is going to reboot.

After the installation of the SIP firmware, we recommend resetting it to factory settings and reconfiguring it; the device will be inactive and will have to be activated from the VDPConfig.
For the MB1 the procedure is the same but the firmware is different.

Checking and Updating Firmware on X-SECURITY Recorders
In this guide we are going to indicate the necessary steps to check and update the firmware in the X-SECURITY recorders, both in the firmware version V3.2.
For this update we will use the Internet Explorer and we must install the plugins of the recorder to the web browser.
Access the recorder and then go to INFO
First we have to check the model of the recorder and the firmware version that is currently installed.
Then we go to the Visiotech website and look for the recorder, in this case the XS-XVR6104, click on Downloads and then apply the FIRMWARE filter.
Our recorder currently has the firmware System Version: 3.210.0001.3, Build Date: 12-12-2016 and the Visiotech web version is System Version: 3.218.0000002.5. Therefore we proceed to download the firmware:
The download file is a .zip file, so let's unpack it. The file we are interested in for the update via web is the .bin file.
Then go back to the recorder, press CONFIG / SYSTEM / UPGRADE and then look for the file you have downloaded by pressing Browse.
Once the file is selected, we proceed to finish the update by pressing UPGRADE.
To update the firmware of an X-SECURITY recorder with Firmware version V4.0.X or higher, the procedure will be the same, however, it changes a little the interface of the recorder.
For this procedure we will also use Internet Explorer as a browser to access the device and perform the update.
After accessing the recorder the first thing to do is to check the firmware version, press Management on the upper left side.
Then we choose INFO.
We see that the recorder is the XS-XVR6208-4KL-HEVC and the firmware version is System Version: V4.000.0000001.13, Build Date: 2019-01-24.
We download the most recent version from the Visiotech website and proceed to update.
In the option MANAGEMENT / SYSTEM / UPGRADE
Press Browse and look for the file that has been downloaded from the Visiotech website.
Remember that the file is a .zip file and you will have to unzip the files contained in it; the update file we are interested in for this procedure is the .bin file.
Once updated, we can check again the version to have the confirmation that it was successfully updated.
Update of FIRMWARE in ANVIZ C2PRO and C2PRO-MIFARE
IMPORTANT: Anviz advises against updating firmwares, as well as publishing them, since not all of them are suitable for all the units of a given reference. For this reason this article is for internal use only and its visibility is limited to agents and administrators.
This update process applies to Anviz C2PRO and C2PRO-MIFARE devices.
First of all, a USB flash drive in FAT32 format is required to perform the firmware update.
For this USB the file OA1100.zip must be inserted.
– do not decompress the file
– The USB to be used must not have any other files inside
With the device turned on, insert the USB into the port on the left side of the housing, as shown in the picture below:

From the administrator menu you must navigate to the OPTION menu and access the new
submenu where you must navigate to UPDATE.
In the UPDATE menu, just click directly on OK.
Then, a notification will appear asking the user the authorization to update
the firmware by clicking on YES (OK).
An update bar will appear during the restart. When the update bar is completed, the device will be
switched on with the updated firmware:
