Software download

The easiest way to ensure your robot is up-to-date is to enable automatic updates. This can be done by linking it to your home network via the Dyson Link app.

If the robot doesn't appear as a WiFi network in your device's network settings, you may need to enable the robot's WiFi mode.

To manually update the software, please follow the instructions below.

Automatic upgrade via the Dyson Link app

By downloading the Dyson Link app you will be registered for automatic upgrades

When an upgrade becomes available for your robot it will automatically download and install at the next available opportunity (when the robot is inactive, on the dock and connected to Wi-Fi)

A ring of lights fading in/out will be displayed while an update is in progress. Do not attempt to interrupt the upgrade sequence until it has completed. Removal of the battery during an upgrade may cause irreparable damage

Once complete the lights will turn off. The robot is ready to use again

Manually upgrade via USB

Your robot's software can be updated using a USB stick if no Wi-Fi network is available.

Please note, the machine does not come with a USB stick. To upgrade via USB, you’ll need to use one formatted to FAT32 with at least 256MB free space.

Please click here to download the latest software onto your USB stick, without renaming it. This software should be the only item on the USB stick (i.e. there should be no other files or folders).

Please Note: For some web browsers, the file may be displayed in the browser instead of prompting you to download it. If this happens, select ‘File’ then ‘Save As’ (or equivalent steps for your specific browser) to save the file on to your USB

Disable, enable and reset Wi-Fi

The USB stick must be unencrypted and formatted to FAT32 or MS-DOS (FAT).
