New Controller Question


Recommended Posts


I read in a post somewhere here today that somebody was asking for help because he just purchased a new ISY Controller because his old one wasn't working correctly. 

He said he wanted to downgrade from 5 to 4 (firmware).

He said the new controllers are being shipped out with the new version 5 of the firmware. 

So my question is this: 

Is it true if I order a new ISY it will come without version 5 firmware? 

I have been holding back from upgrading my ISY from 4 to 5 because it's a lot of work making sure the uograde converted all my programming correctly. 

So if I purchase a new ISY and it comes with version 5 of the firmware then I could slowly move all of my Automation from the old controller to the new one. 

After everything is switched I can then do an upgrade to the old controller to version 5 and then store it as a backup controller should anything happen to the new controller. 

(Plus it puts some money into Universal Devices coffers for all their hard work over the years!)

What's the model number on the bottom of your ISY? 
With kind regards,
Attached is a picture of the bottom label of my ISY.

I'm still interested in obtaining a new ISY with the new 5.x firmware rather than upgrading my existing ISY.

I just need to know which one I should order.

And if I order from Amazon can I assume I will get version 5.x firmware or should I order it directly from you. Universal Devices?
