How do we identify what generation globe we have?

I assume I have a gen4 as I purchased it towards the middle of last year but no update has come through.

Easiest way to tell is by the firmware version. If the major version is ‘2’ then it’s Gen 3 light, i.e. 2.77. Gen 4 the firmware version starts with ‘3’, hence 3.60. We are working on updates for Gen 3 lights, just haven’t completed testing and certification yet.
