RC4MagicPC Remote Configuration Software for Series 3 Devices:

As of v3.14.6.6, RC4 Wireless can provide you with an encrypted ID file for your system.  If you have not been provided with your encrypted ID file, request it here.  Be sure to include your name or company name that is associated with your system in our database, and the IDs as marked on your device labels.

Treat your ID file carefully — it is the key to your worldwide RC4 system security.

If you do not have an ID file, your computer can also learn your IDs by connecting to one of your devices using the ID3/Public ID, which is the same on all devices ever built.  This process is demonstrated in this video:

RC4 Series 3 Harmonized Design Firmware Update Files

New RC4 Series 3 SX Firmware is now available!  Updates are compatible with all Series 3 Harmonized Design hardware, all the way back to first release in Aug 2014.
The zip files below contain firmware for ALL devices in each product family.  You MUST CodeLoad the correct file for the device you are updating.  Loading the wrong file will NOT brick the device, it will simply not operate as expected.  In many cases rapid and continuous LED flashing indicates an incorrect firmware file.  Repeat the CodeLoader process using the correct file.

An RC4 CodeLoader cable or equivalent is REQUIRED to upload firmware to Series 3 devices.
Purchase a CodeLoader cable.

Video tutorials showing how to upload all our devices are provided on our RC4 Documentation and Support Website, http://rc4.info.
Always restore defaults after updating firmware.
  Failure to do so may result in unexpected behavior.
