Weather Station Firmware? Version number?

Hi guys,

I have 3 ruuvi tags that i use to monitor fridges and freezers -> influxdb -> grafana.

I have a question, i’ve noticed that i need RAM/Weather Station Firmware to get more granular data from my beacons but i can’t find any links to the “Weather Station Firmware” can someone toss me a link?

Lastly, again quite an easy one but how can i find out the firmware/version number and mode that my beacons are setup in? I currently use the Ruuvi Station on Android.

Any help would be great - I Love em!


You can check your current FW version number with an NFC enabled phone.

Here are manuals:

RAW2 (better accuracy) firmware is still in beta so that’s why it’s not easy to find. You can find it here:

Additionally, the “ruuvi firmware” was called “weather station” before, so they are basically the same thing, “weather station” is just the old name for the firmware, still found on some older posts. Thus the link that Lauri provided is what you are looking for.

It’s also worth noting that the older firmwares don’t have NFC support so you won’t be able to read them via NFC, thus if you have a standard firmware and can’t read the tag with NFC, you know it’s running an old version, likely without RAWv2 support.

Connecting here, as I don’t think my question merits a new thread. I don’t understand how to check the firmware version number on iOS. In another thread someone suggested Lightblue, which discovers the Ruuvitags but then times out before connecting. The official app (Ruuvi Sation [sic!]) does not display the FW version, unless there is a secret way.

Since May 2018 the firmware version is available via NFC on Ruuvi Firmware

That’s great to hear. Sorry for being so dense, but could you please divulge the steps necessary to find the firmware version number? Earlier in this thread Lauri did suggest having a look in the manual page, but the iOS manual seems to be not complete:

iOS operation manual is in the making. This page will be updated once it’s ready.
Luckily, the application is pretty self-explanatory and can be easily used without reading the manual first.

I don’t have an iPhone myself, but these instructions should get you started:

Thanks, that was helpful – although I found out that my current Iphone 6S won’t do NFC. Oh well.

Some how, for me, that link with https is currently 403 forbidden, use http
