Step 4:

By default, the Automatic Firmware Update feature is enabled and will update the firmware whenever a new version is released.  If you have more than one node in your Velop network, each will be updated.  If you turn OFF Automatic Firmware Update, you will get a prompt when a new firmware release is available.  When this happens, tap Update Available to upgrade the firmware. 
 
QUICK TIP:  To turn ON or OFF automatic firmware upgrades, toggle the Automatic Firmware Update switch, and tap Save at the top right corner of the dashboard.
