We focused mainly on performance improvements in FW 4.2. Once installed, the core of the 2N® Indoor Touch 2.0 unit will really get to work like never before. Third-party applications especially will work significantly faster. We have optimised performance for more demanding operations that use multiple processor cores. But it’s not only third-party applications that benefit. You will also notice an increase in speed of built-in UI.
Since this concerns improvements in performance, not just new functions, the unit needs a special upgrade procedure – a “double upgrade”. We have tried to make this simple. All you need to do is install FW 4.2 in each unit twice. Why? With the first installation, the FW prepares the environment in the 2N® Indoor Touch 2.0 answering unit. Only after the firmware is installed a second time will all the necessary operations be complete. Users can then start enjoying an uninterrupted experience.
We will base our later upgrades on firmware 4.2, so we strongly recommend that you install this FW, including the double upgrade.
What else does firmware 4.2 offer?
2N® Indoor Touch 2.0 answering units are able to call between each other. With the new firmware, customers can now also call from a 2N® Indoor Touch 2.0 unit to a 2N® Indoor Compact or 2N® Indoor Talk.
FW 4.2 also updates the versions of the preinstalled video applications from AXIS – AXIS Camera Station and AXIS Companion Classic. Residents can use these to watch live streams from AXIS cameras on their 2N® Indoor Touch 2.0 unit.
