EZVIZ is committed to keeping all products secure and working with the latest features according to the established best practices by providing firmware updates within the support time, which include security updates, bug fixes and new functions.

This document describes the firmware update policy and support for security updates, bug fixes and new functions of EZVIZ Products.

Upgrade Policy Overview

EZVIZ takes security and user experience issues very seriously. Accordingly, we provide outstanding maintenance of our products that includes technical support and regular releases, which include security updates, bug fixes and new functions based on users' feedback and industry best practices.

Generally, version updates are provided regularly and mainly for product performance. If there are some actual conditions, like some critical vulnerabilities are reported, an immediate update will be arranged. However, EZVIZ may does not provide upgrade for older firmware versions that are too old and have few users, even for security issues.

To ensure your product is fully protected and properly working, we'd always recommend you keeping your product updated. We will work with you to make upgrading as easy as possible and have product updates occur at a convenient time for you. EZVIZ will also send you regular reminders to update your product.

For security reasons, no downgrade methods will be provided once firmware is updated. EZVIZ will make every effort to maintain compatibility between firmware versions.

Security Updates

We do our best to provide continuous security updates for our products. The security updates generally include the latest security patches, security vulnerability fixes, and other security improvements. EZVIZ carry out this work through the continuous efforts of professional technicians, some of whom are authoritative external experts from extensive cooperation launched by us.

EZVIZ will maintain the security updates for at least 2(TWO) years after the first shipment for sale of the certain product models. Subject to actual conditions, we may support the security updates for 3 years or longer, such as, a very serious vulnerability is discovered that security fixes are necessary.

EZVIZ may does not provide security updates for older firmware versions that are too old and have few users. Therefore, all EZVIZ products need to be updated to the firmware version that includes the latest security update.

We regularly publish and update the end-of-life (EOL) product list for which firmware updates are no longer supported, to help you check whether your product can still support updates. You can consult the EOL product list here.
