Texecom Academy - October Schedule

Texecom Academy - October Schedule

We are continuing to support installers with our free online Texecom Academy training workshops.

This month we have added a Bite Size training module detailing the new Texecom Connect app. This provides installers an overview of the new Cloud-based installation process in preparation for the new app, which will be released in November.

The new Texecom Connect app will allow professional installers to manage their portfolio of Texecom Connect users through their Texecom Cloud account.

With Texecom Cloud, you’ll have visibility of all your Texecom Connect app users, and access to premium features to actively manage your portfolio.

Texecom Connect remains a free end user app, free for installers to offer, and will be free for installers to administer with Texecom Cloud’s free membership option.

Registration via Eventbrite for October courses is open now, simply click on the date of the workshop you are interested in and follow the registration process.

Joining instructions for registrants will be emailed 2 days before the event and will contain all the information you need to join the session.

Texecom is pleased to announce the release of SmartCom V3.0 firmware, available for immediate download and remote upgrade via Texecom Cloud or Texecom Connect.

SmartCom V3.0 firmware offers significant performance and resilience upgrades, including:

  • Updated and enhanced WiFi drivers for improved WiFi connectivity

  • Updated LED functionality to ensure consistency with SmartCom 4G (coming soon)

SmartCom V3.0 LED Functionality

SmartCom V3.0 has new LED functionality to ensure consistency between the SmartCom and the upcoming SmartCom 4G.

  • With SmartCom V3.0 the Power LED has been replaced with a Mobile Comms status LED, a feature of the upcoming SmartCom 4G
  • The Power LED was unnecessary as at least one other SmartCom LED is always active, indicating power to the unit
