  1. Hi!
    I have 3 Circle 2 in my house. All of them are running HomeKit Secure Video.
    Only one circle 2 has updated to firmware 8.2.43. The others still running 8.0.48
    What I have to do to update the others?

    • It’s rolling out this week and it’s just a wait and see process. I have 2 in my home and none of them have received it yet
