Exodus Render Firmware Update

We’re excited to announce Scoutek and Exodus have completed a new firmware version for the Exodus Render. All Exodus Render cameras should receive this update to ensure optimal performance and function. Render FW version 0509xx (The last 2 digits can be disregarded and are shown here with "xx") improves and/or corrects the items listed below:

There are two different ways you are able to apply the update to your Exodus Render. If you have access to your camera, the FW update can be applied manually through an SD card OR  you can perform the FW update with an over the air update command via the Scoutek App. You can follow the steps below each option.

Performing the Update via the Scoutek App

To prepare to update your camera's firmware Through the Scoutek app, confirm the following:

 

Follow these steps to update your camera's firmware:

IMPORTANT: Before proceeding with the next step, make sure your camera has a minimum of 75% battery or higher, and that you do not interfere with the camera during the next step. Once the camera begins updating its firmware, it is critical that the camera does not lose power or is not tampered with. Power loss (dead batteries, switching the camera to off, ejecting battery tray, etc.) during the middle of the firmware update will completely brick your camera, and you will have to ship them back to us for us to repair it.

You can confirm the OTA command was sent by checking your action history, where you should see the request as “Pending”.

The FW update will be processed upon the next communication with the Scoutek server and the new FW version ending in 0509xx should be listed on the Status report when the update is completed.

The camera will take anywhere from 1-15 minutes to show signal strength and become active. When this occurs the signal strength icon will show bars of service. At this point, you will also see a “status report sent” message on the camera. You can also take a test photo by pressing enter which will also upload to Scoutek. From here you can power the camera off for a 30 seconds and then power the camera to the “On” position. You are ready to deploy and change the settings according to through the Scoutek app or web portal.
