What is new of the C-Bus PICED 4.14.2?
  • C-Bus PICED 4.14.2 was released on 26/06/2023
Security Enhancements
PICED now provides improved security for Wiser 2 and C-Bus Home Controller projects. The requirements for profile passwords have been strengthened, as has their storage. Our recommendation is to update your Wiser 2 and C-Bus Home Controller projects to take advantage of these security fixes.

Note: that your Wiser 2 and C-Bus Home Controller projects cannot be rolled back to their previous versions once updated.

Transfer Utility now provides improved security for Wiser 2 and C-Bus Home Controller projects while transferring and retrieving project data, and while updating firmware. Port 80 is blocked for remote transfer and is supported by local transfer only. Remote transfer uses port 443 by default.

Let’s Encrypt is now supported for providing secure connections. To enable Let’s Encrypt, the C-Bus Home Controller DNS name can be provided while specifying project details. Secure connection details can be provided on the Transfer Project screen.
