RYE BROOK, N.Y. — Attention Sage ENDEC users: the company has released an important firmware update of CAP alert authentication certificates.
The company says that this is only for Digital ENDEC model 3644 units that already have version 89-30 installed and is not applicable for Canadian units.
The update must be installed prior to June 24 at 11:45 a.m. (EDT); after that time, the units without the updated will be unable to receive CAP alerts from FEMA IPAWS and some other providers.
Additionally, the updated firmware includes root certificates used for HTTPS access to websites that provide audio files for alerts from state or county alert originators.
Note that this update will not change ENDEC settings.
