Plume will be releasing software updates from time to time. These updates will happen automatically, on a rolling basis. It may take up to a week from release for your location to receive the update.
Your Pods must be connected to the Plume network to receive the software updates. If any of your Pods are offline, please plug or re-plug them back into the outlet.
