Name

Give your FarmBot a fun name. For example: Broccoli Overlord 🥦 🤖

Timezone

Set the device’s timezone.

Automatically set

When you create your FarmBot web app account and login for the first time, we will automatically set your device’s timezone to match your computer or phone’s timezone (whichever was used to login to the account). If your FarmBot is located somewhere else, you can change the timezone setting here.

Update time

With this dropdown you can choose the hour of the day when FarmBot will apply software updates so that updates occur at a convenient time (such as the middle of the night) when you do not have any events scheduled and do not plan to be working with your FarmBot.

You may also choose the As soon as possible option, in which case FarmBot will install updates immediately as they become available. Note that selecting this option may cause unexpected disruptions and event execution failures.

Auto update

When enabled, FarmBot OS will automatically download and install software updates at the chosen time.

Enabled by default

This setting is enabled by default so that your FarmBot will stay updated automatically with the latest features and security patches. If you decide to disable auto updates, please make sure you regularly manually update your device so that it stays within our support policy.

FarmBot OS

View the version of FarmBot OS that you have installed on your device, that version’s release notes, and install updates if they are available using the UPDATE button. Note that the update button will display as UP TO DATE when there are no updates available.
