How to upgrade?
For upgrading your IQtronic GSM product you need to have licence key. If you don’t have any, contact your distributor/reseller. You can also order license key from IQtronic.
Each licence key is binded with IMEI code, so cannot be applied to different piece of product.
There are two ways how to upgrade Licence:
1. send following SMS command over GSM into device:
2. (easier way – license key copied and pasted) Use PC and Bluetooth IQcontrol Suite for windows and send over Bluetooth:
Activate Bluetooth on your PC, install IQcontrol Suite and click: IQcontrol button > Connect > select from BT devices IQsocketxxxx > Enter PIN=0000 > OK
Now you can send SMS commands over BT interface: license=licensekey
you should receive SMS confirmation right after with text “license ok”
If bad or corrupted license is entered, device is blocked for 6 minutes. It’s protection.
