We are happy to share an OPTIONAL firmware upgrade for REVEAL X-2.0 models! This upgrade is NOT REQUIRED for your camera to continue working.
This firmware update provides improved image quality for the REVEAL X-2.0 models.
Please note that this firmware update is not compatible with or required for any other REVEAL camera models including REVEAL X, REVEAL XB, or REVEAL SK models.
If you would like to purchase an SD card with the firmware pre-loaded, please Contact Support.
What enhancements are included in the firmware update?
Improved picture quality sent from the camera to your REVEAL app
- 1024 X 768 for day thumbnail pictures sent to the app thumbnail
- 640 x 480 for night thumbnail pictures sent to the app

Before you get started, ensure you have:
- REVEAL X-2.0 camera
- Formatted, full-size 32GB Class 10 U3 SD card
- At least 4 bars of battery strength showing on the camera
- A computer (PC or Mac) with an SD card slot or adapter
Step One: Download ALL files to your computer.
- Click the link below to download the REVEAL X-2.0 Firmware update files
- REVEAL X 2.0 FW
Step Two: Format your SD card
Once you have downloaded the correct firmware for your camera, insert your SD card in your computer and format it to erase all other files.
To format your SD card, please follow the instructions in the links below.
Step Three: Load the 2 files onto a formatted SD card
- In your file explorer (PC) or finder (Mac), locate the downloaded firmware folder
- Open the downloaded firmware folder
- Drag/Copy the files over to your SD Card drive
- Make sure the files are not in a folder on the SD Card
- Safely eject the SD card from the computer
- If you get the message "this file is blocked," select the Keep option. The files will then be in the download folder.
Step Four: Update your camera
*Settings after the update will revert to factory default settings. Please take note of any settings you currently have.
- Turn the camera to SETUP to verify full battery strength, then turn the camera OFF
- WARNING: Fewer than 4 battery bars during a firmware update can risk losing power during the update process. If you lose power in the midst of the upgrade process, your camera may be rendered completely inoperable and only a certified REVEAL camera technician in our repair facility will be able to recover your camera. Make sure you have good batteries!
- If there is an SD card installed in your camera, remove it and replace it with the SD card containing the new firmware.
- With the camera in the OFF position, press and hold the TEST button while switching the camera to SETUP at the same time, keep holding the TEST button until the status light starts flashing green
- Once the status light is flashing green, release the TEST button and allow the camera to update
- DO NOT turn the camera OFF while the update is in process
- The status light will flash green for up to several minutes, and then the camera will power cycle. Once the camera reboots, and all indicator lights stabilize, the update is complete.
What happens if I see a Red Flashing Status Light?
This means that the Firmware Update is not taking place. Here are a couple of things to check:
- Wrong Firmware loaded onto the SD card
- Make sure you have the correct firmware for your camera and no extra letters or numbers have been added to the file names
- Firmware isn't on the SD card
- Try adding them to the SD card again or try a different SD card.
- Firmware is in a folder on the SD card
- Only the files can be on the SD card
- Hitting the test button more than once
- If you hit the test button instead of holding it down while going into setup, it will take a photo instead of starting the update.
How do I verify that the new firmware is installed and active?
- NOTE: This is NOT a required step in the update process, but here for your convenience
- To verify the firmware update was completed successfully, connect to the wifi to see firmware
- Firmware should say, 5MR4RCwD502 or 6MR4RCwD404
- If you see either of the firmware numbers above, the update was successful.
