NEEO har frigivet en større opdatering til deres NEEO multi-fjernbetjening, der er klar til download.
For et par dage siden frigav holdet bag NEEO fjernbetjeningen en ny og opdateret software til deres “Brain”. Softwaren har version 0.51.13, og tilføjet en del nye funktioner og en stor del rettelser til softwaren.
NEEO har fået support for Wemo og MyStrom kontakter, der gør at du nu kan styre dem via NEEO fjernbetjeningen. Oven i det har NEEO lavet en HDMI CEC driver til Nvidia Shield TV, der gør at du nu via HDMI CEC kan styre dit Nvidia Shield TV endnu bedre.
NEEO har også frigivet en app til din fjernbetjening de kalder NEEO Cranium, der gør at du bl.a. kan genstarte din NEEO Brain, hvis den virker låst i en funktion. Du kan også styre om dioden på forsiden skal være tændt eller slukket.
Der er mange flere rettelser, som du kan læse om i nedenstående release-notes.
The next big update for your NEEO is ready. We strongly recommend updating since this release does not only bring a load of new features to your NEEO, it also includes major stability improvements to make your daily NEEO experience even better.
With every release we are supporting more devices, Raphael wrote about these freshly merged integrations in separate threads, make sure to check them out:
Let me elaborate a few more noteworthy features deserving some attention here. You can find the full list of changes for this release further down in this thread.
If you search for “virtual” in the device adding menu in the NEEO App you will find a device called “NEEO Virtual Switch”. Using this device you can add a limited number of virtual switches.
There are so many use cases that we prepared a thread with a few examples. This way we all have a separate thread where we can share ideas and question.
NEEO Cranium Driver
As a proof of concept, we added a device named “NEEO Cranium”. NEEO Cranium is capable of some pretty cool stuff on your NEEO Brain itself: For instance, it allows rebooting your NEEO Brain directly from your NEEO Remote or control of your NEEO Brain’s LED.
Let’s say the LED on your NEEO Brain is annoying you when watching TV in a dark room. In the NEEO App, add the NEEO Cranium device. After that, change the TV recipe and include the step “Turn OFF LED” from the NEEO Cranium device in the ON-part, in the OFF-part include the step “Turn ON LED”. The LED will now turn off when you start your TV recipe and turn on again once you shut the recipe down.
These and more options come with NEEO Cranium – make sure to check it out. (PS: Sorry for the strange name of that driver – this is what happens if you let developers pick the name ;))
Sounds simple but it’s important: You can now move devices in between rooms. This especially comes in handy when adding devices from a primary Z-Wave controller, during that process you can directly assign them no rooms now.
Our engineering and developing team managed to further improve how threads are handled. In other words: Much more stability on your NEEO Remote. This is subtle and in the background but a very important improvement.
We also came up with some great WiFi improvements after doing a bunch of on-site analyses which resulted in a number of changes.
That being said, there is a mind-blowing new easter egg – but I won’t tell you more about that as I know you’ll figure that out yourself 😉

How to update your NEEO
Pretty simple as announced in release 0.50.6: Simply wait for the NEEO Remote or the NEEO App to show the red exclamation mark, then click on it and follow the instructions. If you are not running 0.50.6 yet, follow this little guide to update via the NEEO App.
The firmware release is not published at the very same moment in all regions, so be aware that it may take up to 24 hours until your NEEO Brain shows the update, so give it some time.
