What's involved in a Clipsal update?
An update to your C-Bus system can include hardware, firmware, and programming changes. Getting an update to your system's hardware may involve installing new sensors, switches or dimmers.
A great new example of hardware you can add to your system is Clipsal's Enhanced Dynamic Labelling Technology (eDLT). The eDLT switch enables you to have more control over the lighting in your home. You'll get the option of more colours, control, and functionality from a single switch plate.

A firmware update will ensure your C-Bus system has the latest software from the manufacturer. After a Clipsal update, your system should run smoothly without any lagging or errors. Programming changes to your system can involve simpler changes such as reallocating switches, changes to zones of the house and other basic settings.
