  • To check the firmware version
  • To do a manual firmware update (if automatic update failed)
  • To check or update the Time Zone settings

Configuration

Since all Connectivity settings should be configured on the parent node, the settings on the child node are limited.

On a child node, you can change your Time Zone if needed (it should sync from the parent node).  You can also reset the child node or update the firmware manually.
