WebUI and Firmware Upgrade
1080p and 1440p Camera Series
Install the newest Firmware and Web User Interface on your IP Camera
When a new update becomes available go to System / Update and you will be prompted if you want to install it - just confirm and wait for your camera to reboot.
Alternatively, you can download the newest version of the WebUI or Firmware from our website manually. Go to the Download section on our website. For older Version, please check out our Legacy Software (only for advanced users). Please select your camera model and scroll to the end of the page for the corresponding download links. Please read the instructions carefully to make an informed decision on which Software you have to download. Both updates - web user interface and firmware - can either be done through the INSTAR camera tool or the camera´s webUI and the update procedure is the same for Windows, macOS and LINUX respectively.
Go to System / Update and choose the updated file - you have to unzip the *.pkg file downloaded from our Download Area - and click Update to start the process.
