Update RFLink Gateway on Raspbian with Domoticz

It’s possible to update a RFLink gateway from your Pi running Raspbian and Domoticz.

Before :

 

After :

1. Software

Install Avrdude :

pi@pi:~ $ sudo apt-get install avrdude

2. Files

Updates could be found on the official website :
http://www.rflink.nl/blog2/download

The files are stored on Drive. To download it with wget, you need to identify the file ID (in red below) :

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwEYW5Q6bg_ZLWFJUkY4bDZacms/view

Then download it with this url :

pi@pi:~ $ wget 'https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0BwEYW5Q6bg_ZLWFJUkY4bDZacms'

Then rename it :

pi@pi:~ $ mv uc\?export=download\&id=0BwEYW5Q6bg_ZLWFJUkY4bDZacms firmware.zip

And uncompress it :

pi@pi:~ $ unzip firmware.zip

3. Update process

Stop domoticz :

pi@pi:~ $ sudo service domoticz stop

Then upload it on the Arduino :

pi@pi:~ $ sudo avrdude -v -p atmega2560 -c stk500 -P /dev/ttyACM0 -b 115200 -D -U flash:w:RFLink.cpp.hex:i
