Introduction
This Control4® document gives you quick instructions about how to upgrade a basic, one mesh
network system to OS 2.0 from 1.7.4 (through the ZigBee Pro upgrade) if you have multiple
Controllers in the system. If your system is more complicated, you can still follow these general steps
after you read Section 2, “Review the Upgrade Installation Documents.”
If you are on a Release 1.8.2 system and need to update to OS 2.0, you are already on ZigBee Pro
and can perform the update as usual if you have a valid license. In this case, see Managing Dealer
Accounts on My.Control4.Com on the Knowledgebase.
You can also view the video “ZigBeeUpdate051810” which explains how to update from Release 1.7.4
to 1.8.2.
2.
Review the Upgrade Installation Documents
You will be probably unfamiliar with many new terms and concepts needed for this upgrade. To get
some good background information and best practices, read Composer Pro Software Release Update
Instructions – 1.7.4 to 1.8.2 or Composer Pro Software Release Update Instructions – 1.7.4 to 2.0
depending on the upgrade you’re performing. The first document lists terms and concepts. We
suggest you read both documents before you start.
3.
Back Up Composer Pro
Back up the Composer Pro project before and after the upgrade. We will remind you later in this
document.
4.
Download and Install Composer 2.0
1. Go to the Dealer portal at www.control4.com.
2. Locate the build under Software http://www.control4.com/dealer/dealer-support/softwarealert/software-updates-T_514448/ to download and install Composer.
WARNING! There is no way to downgrade a system to Release 1.7.4 after it has been updated to
ZigBee Pro. Make sure you read the Release Notes and these Composer Pro Software Release
Update Instructions – 1.7.4 to 2.0 before you decide whether upgrading to OS 2.0 is a good option for
your customers.
5.
Software License Must Be Available
New with OS 2.0, we are using an activation mechanism for Composer Pro that verifies that the
Installer has been granted a license to run Composer Pro. You will need an OS 2.0 Upgrade license
and a Composer Pro license. If your account does not have these licenses, please contact the
Administrator of your company’s my.control4.com Dealer account.

For information about how to purchase and assign licenses, see Managing Dealer Accounts on
My.Control4.Com on the Control4 Dealer web site.
6.
Run and Activate Composer 2.0
Requirements:
•
Internet connection
•
My.Control4.Com account with a Composer Pro license. Once activated, Composer Pro
can run without requiring an Internet connection.
Start Composer Pro and connect to a Director.
7.
Upgrade to OS 2.0
After you connect to your Release 1.7.4 system with Composer 2.0, you are ready to update your
system.
In Composer, use Tools > Update Manager to update your system to OS 2.0.
7.1
Run the Media Database Update Wizard
With OS 2.0, we have changed the format of the Control4 Media Database. Your project will be
converted during the upgrade process, and a wizard will walk you through the steps. See Composer
Pro Software Release Update Instructions – 1.7.4 to 2.0 for details about this wizard and the media
conversion process.
Note: If you initiate the update to OS 2.0 from a prior version of Composer, this wizard will NOT be
executed. Your Media Database will be converted automatically by Director when it starts after the
update is completed. However, this is not recommended because it will not preserve cover art or
playlists. And you will not have the option to perform the other functions offered by the wizard.

After conversion, Composer checks if there is a Screen Saver directory. If the directory is found,
Composer creates a new subdirectory (1024x768 resolution) for the 10.5” v2 Wireless Touch Screen.
All of the photos currently stored will be scaled for this new aspect ratio.
7.2
Update the IP Devices
After the Media Database is converted, the update procedure continues. This works as it always has.
Note: Recalibrate all Flash-based Navigator Touch Screens after they have been updated to OS 2.0.
To recalibrate go to the Touch Screen and follow the on-screen instructions using the crosshairs.
7.3
Upgrade the ZigBee Devices
There is new ZigBee Pro firmware for many of the devices in your system which will update
automatically.
Note: If you have not previously updated your system’s ZigBee devices to ZigBee Pro (upgrade to
Release 1.8.2), you will need to do so now (next section).
8.
Upgrade to ZigBee Pro
The ZigBee Pro upgrade process is not a trivial task to perform. Ensure that you review the Glossary
terms in Composer Pro Software Release Update Instructions – 1.7.4 to 1.8.2 so you are familiar with
the terms and concepts used during this upgrade process.
8.1
Plan Your Time
The ZigBee Pro upgrade is not a “start-and-forget” upgrade. It will take a significant amount of time
and attention to update your Control4 systems, but the benefits will be well worth the effort involved.
Note: Control4 Dimmers configured in switch-leg mode will not control a load while in MiniApp mode.
Because of this, if you try to turn on the Dimmer while in MiniApp mode, it will cause the Dimmer to
reboot. Plan your update accordingly (or keep a portable light fixture handy that you can use for
temporary lighting).

Update the ZigBee Devices
Devices that update and the order in which they update:
8.3
•
Dimmers, Switches, Keypads, and outlet modules: EmberNet > MiniApp > [Join the network]
> ZigBee Pro.
•
Thermostats and System Remote Controls: EmberNet > ZigBee Pro > [Join the network].
Create the ZigBee Pro Mesh Network and Select a ZigBee
Server
To use the devices in the new ZigBee Pro network, the network must be created and a ZigBee Server
must be assigned. The ZigBee Server must be an HC-class Controller (for example: Home Controller
HC-300). If you have an HC-1000 as the Primary Controller, use this one.
As part of the upgrade process, create the ZigBee Pro mesh network (see below). This includes
selecting the ZigBee Server and ZAP Coordinator (which manages the security parameters of your
network).
To create the ZigBee Pro mesh network and select the ZigBee Server:
1. Start Composer 2.0 and connect to a Director.
2. Click System Design.
3. From the project tree, select an HC-class Controller; example: Home Controller HC200.
4. In the Properties page of the Controller, click Edit ZigBee Configuration.
5. View and use the drop-down lists to select the ZigBee Server and ZAP Coordinator as shown in
the ZigBee Network Settings dialog in the screen examples below. You can use the same
Controller for both.

Note: The Create button takes you into the dialog box where the ZAP coordinator can be
selected. Select the ZigBee Server and other ZAPs from the main dialog box. You can change
these at any time; however, you cannot change the ZAP coordinator after you create the mesh.
6. Click OK.
7. Verify that your selections are correct, and then click OK.
IMPORTANT! If you use the same Controller designated as the ZAP Coordinator as an EmberNet
Upgrade Controller, the ZigBee Pro mesh network will not be operational. When you disable the
Controller as an EmberNet Upgrade Controller, it will reconfigure itself for ZigBee Pro and the ZigBee
Pro mesh will come online.
WARNING! Do not change your ZAP configuration while the system is updating. This will slow
everything down, and may cause problems.
8.4
Channel Selection
A channel is automatically selected based on an RF energy scan conducted at the time the mesh was
created. You can change that channel if you have better data from an RF analyzer.
WARNING! Do not change the channels while the devices are re-flashing.

8.5
Select the EmberNet Upgrade Controller
To update your EmberNet devices (Dimmers, Switches, Keypads, etc.) to MiniApp and then to ZigBee
Pro, you must have a Controller with a ZigBee radio operating on EmberNet (HC-200, HC-300, HC500, HTC, or MC).
Note: This can be one of the Controllers in your system or a ZStick. We do not recommend that you
assign the same Controller for ZAP and EmberNet Upgrade Controller. Check with your Control4
Sales representative if you want to use a ZStick.
To select an EmberNet Upgrade Controller:
1. On the Composer Tools menu, select Network Tools.
2. Click the EmberNet Upgrade tab.
3. Click the Controllers button. The following screen appears.
4. Select the Controller and click OK.
IMPORTANT! While you have an EmberNet Upgrade Controller configured in your system, the
ZigBee Pro mesh network is placed in ‘Auto-Join’ mode. This means that any device attempting to join
the mesh network can join as long as that device was previously identified in the Composer project.
IMPORTANT! When you finish updating the EmberNet devices, disable the EmberNet Upgrade
Controller(s). We will remind you to do this later in this document.
8.6
Monitor the Upgrade Using Network Tools
After you select the ZigBee Server, create the mesh network, select the ZAP Coordinator, and select
the EmberNet Upgrade Controller, the devices start updating. Network Tools is the best way to

monitor the upgrade activities of your devices. The Network Tools window shows three (3) tabs: IP
Network, ZigBee Network, and EmberNet Upgrade.
Tip: Two (2) of these tabs are used for the upgrade: ZigBee Network and EmberNet Upgrade. If you
click between the two tabs during the upgrade, you’ll notice various actions taking place (Online vs.
Offline, percent changes, devices dropping off the list, etc. as the devices are being upgraded).
8.6.1 ZigBee Network Tab
Use this tab to view the devices on the ZigBee Pro mesh network, to enable devices to join the
network, and to view which devices have moved from MiniApp to ZigBee Pro.
When you first start the update, you should see the Controller running ZigBee Server and ZAP in the
Routing Tree view marked ‘Online.’ The other ZigBee Pro devices are added and come online as they
get updated to ZigBee Pro and join the network.
There are three (3) different ways to view ZigBee Pro devices: Room Tree, Routing Tree, or List (see
below).
1. Room Tree. The default view that shows all devices identified to your project, and whether they
are Online.
2. List. Useful during an update or any time you want to sort the device information based on Device
Name, Address, Version, or Status, and also shows all devices known to the project. Devices that
show up with an ‘M’ in their version are in MiniApp mode. After these devices update to ZigBee
Pro and join the network, the ‘M’ disappears and the status indicates ‘Online.’
Notice the progress of devices being updated (example: Progress: 91%). When they reach
100%, they show as Online in this view.

3. Routing Tree. This varies from the Room Tree and the List view in that it only shows devices
actually known to the ZigBee mesh network. It also shows the mesh network in a hierarchical
view. Because there are multiple routes to any device on the mesh, you will see devices show up
multiple times in the Routing Tree view.
8.6.2 EmberNet Upgrade Tab
Control4 has configured the EmberNet Upgrade tab to show all ZigBee devices in the project that
have not reported online via the ZigBee Pro mesh network, so you may occasionally see devices in
this list that aren’t actually in need of an update or are not available to update.
Note: Devices that update to MiniApp appear as “Re-flashing” in the list and “Success” when they are
finished. When a device updates to ZigBee Pro, it will show 100% progress and drop out of the list
only after it updates to ZigBee Pro. This is a good indicator of how many devices are left to update. If
Director restarts, all update status information will be reset.

Notes:
It may take a few minutes for the front panel of the Controller to reconfigure to EmberNet.
If you don’t see the channel listed for that Controller after five (5) minutes, it is likely that the
Controller front panel wasn’t reconfigured for EmberNet correctly. Try to use another
EmberNet Upgrade Controller, or if you know that ZigBee previously worked on the selected
Controller, contact Control4 Technical Support for assistance.
If the Controller doesn’t find the devices that require an update in the project on the current channel, it
will change channels approximately every two (2) minutes, looking for devices that need to be
updated. Be patient while it determines the best channel.
9.
Uncheck the EmberNet Upgrade Controller
If you assigned a Controller to EmberNet Upgrade Controller rather than using a ZStick, and you’re
sure the MiniApp update has completed updating all of the ZigBee devices, uncheck the EmberNet
Upgrade Controller (see the section, “Select the EmberNet Upgrade Controller”) (Tools > Network
Tools > EmberNet Upgrade tab).
10.
Join the Network
When a device is in MiniApp mode or has been updated to full ZigBee Pro firmware and is ready to
join the network, it needs to be joined.
If an EmberNet upgrade is going on, the network will be in Auto-Join mode. If not, ensure that AutoJoin is enabled (see the next steps).

To join a device to the network:
1. Use the appropriate button-press sequence on the device:
•
System Remote Control SR-150/SR-250—Use the four (4) tap method on the 4 button to
identify and join.
•
Thermostat—Use the four (4) tap method on the center button to identify and join.
•
Dimmers/Switches/Keypads—Press and hold the bottom button (bottom left on the 6button Keypad) 3 to 4 seconds to join when in MiniApp mode (see the next section).
•
Outlet modules—Press and hold the identify button 3 to 4 seconds to join when in MiniApp
mode.
• LCD Keypad— Press the Select dial to identify and join.
2. If the network is not in Join mode, you can put it into Join mode by putting the mesh into Join
mode using the ZigBee Network tab.
10.1.1 LED Indicators
When devices finish updating to MiniApp or ZigBee Pro, the following LED indicators show device
status. Refer to the table below to see when to join your devices to the network.
Use the Color column to view what the LEDs on your device are doing and their State, and the
Action column to determine what to do next.
Example: If a Dimmer flashes Green, press and hold the Bottom button on the Dimmer for about four
(4) seconds until the flashing Green turns to blinking Yellow. At that point, leave the Dimmer alone
and let it finish its join. You’ll know that when the LED color is the same as the color assigned before
you started the update.

Back Up Composer Pro
Always back up the project after the update is completed. This is important in case the project ever
needs to be restored from backup. If the project does need to be restored, you will need a current
backup with the correct ZAP mesh parameters to avoid recommissioning the ZAP mesh network.
12.
More Information
Refer to the OS 2.0 Upgrade Instructions and Release Notes. The Upgrade Instructions provide more
details about each phase of the upgrade, examples, warnings and other information, and other
scenarios, for example, if you need to add new devices to the system, join or leave the network, etc.
