How to update an Automower® robotic lawn mower

Husqvarna periodically releases new firmware for your Automower® robotic lawn mower. These updates not only address performance or security issues but also introduce new features.

By keeping your mower’s firmware up to date, you ensure its optimal performance and gain access to any new functionality Husqvarna releases.

Understanding firmware

Firmware is a form of software stored inside a product, such as an Automower® robotic lawn mower. It provides the instructions that allow the product to perform basic tasks, functions and communicate with other devices.

How to update your Automower® firmware

Updating the firmware yourself

Some Automower® models support Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) technology, which allows you to update the firmware yourself. When a new firmware update is available, Automower® Connect will notify you. Simply follow the on-screen instructions to complete the update. For detailed instructions on using FOTA, refer to our guide: What is FOTA and how do I use it?

If you need help with the firmware update, don’t hesitate to contact your local dealer.

Visiting the dealer for firmware updates

If your Automower® robotic lawn mower doesn’t support FOTA, you’ll need to take your mower to your local dealer for a firmware update. Dealers always update your mower to the latest firmware version during pre-winter storage servicing.

What if you don’t update the firmware?

You can continue using the mower without updating the firmware, but you won’t have access to any new features or enhancements. However, if a firmware update includes a security patch and you have an Automower® model that supports FOTA, the update is mandatory and will be installed automatically.

Please contact your local Husqvarna dealer if you need personalised assistance with your robotic lawn mower.
