What is Test Release?
This version of firmware has been in development and has been tested by Cuddeback
staff and friends but has not yet been fully qualified for full scale release. While we believe this firmware
version is bug free and will properly function on CuddeLink cameras, we have not 100% confirmed all features
function correctly. If you download and install this firmware be aware that this is pre-release (commonly
known as Beta release).
How do I update my CuddeLink cameras?
It is important to properly update your cameras:
Download firmware to your PC and copy the cdy_1_0_0.zip file to a blank SD card.
Load the firmware into ALL your CuddeLink cameras.
We recommend doing a RESET on all cameras and reprogramming the settings. On the camera user
interface press MODE to TEST, press MORE until RESET is displayed, then press UP twice. You will have to
reprogram all settings including CuddeLink modes, Cell Modes, and camera settings. IMPORTANT—you
must do this step to avoid any problems.
Setup and deploy the HOME CELL camera as you normally would. You can now select a CuddeLink channel
from 1 to 240.
Setup and deploy the REMOTE cameras as you normally would. Make sure to select the same CuddeLink
channel on the Home and all Remotes.
Online camera control when used with CuddeLink Cell
View and change settings of Home and Remote cameras from any web browser (smartphone, tablet or computer).
Allows setting Camera Delay, Time Lapse Mode, Camera ID, Camera Location Number, Camera
Mode (Remote or Repeater), Clear SD Card, Clear Remote Transmit Queue, Turn Remote cameras on/off, and more.
Change CuddeLink and Cell configuration.
View network status for each camera (Link level, battery level, SD status, etc.)
Improved CuddeLink Network Performance
Up to 24 cameras on a single network (improved from 16).
Up to 50% faster performance and 50% more images sent per day, up to 1500 images per day
when cameras are 1 or 2 links from Home (improved from 1000 images per day).
Remote camera’s date and time are set by the Home camera, assuring all cameras are set to the
same time. This means that if you set the date and time on the Home camera, all the Remote
cameras will be updated.
Select from up to 240 CuddeLink channels to prevent interference with neighboring CuddeLink
networks (improved from 16).
Compatible with all CuddeLink cameras
CuddeLink Gen 2 is compatible with all previous deployed CuddeLink cameras when they are
updated to firmware version 8.0.0 or later.
To update your non-Gen 2 cameras visit www.cuddeback.com and click Get Gen 2 in the upper
right. Follow onscreen instructions to download files to an SD card. With this 1 SD card you can
update all your CuddeLink cameras. We also recommend you update your newly purchased
cameras as the firmware may have been improved since the manufacturing date.
