When performing a software update on either the Sony® receiver or the Control4 dimmers and switches, it is normal for either of the devices to respond in the following ways:

  • When updating the receiver, the Control4 dimmers and switches may turn on and off a few times.
  • When updating the Control4 devices, the two LEDs on the switches and dimmers that are normally green or red will slowly flash orange; and the Control4 functionality on the receiver will be temporarily suspended.

    NOTE: You will need to wait until the update is complete to use any Control4 programmed functions with the remote control supplied.
