Install Collage updates through Command

Install Collage updates through Command

Please reach out to our Support Team to receive the APK for the latest version of Collage. To know if this version is compatible with your Clear Touch IFP, please refer to the Collage feature update list: https://support.getcleartouch.com/portal/en/kb/articles/panel-collage-app-update-record


Please note that the 6000U series cannot update past Collage v2. This is due to a chipset limitation. Although you can successfully install a newer version of Collage on the 6000U series panel through Command, this version will have limited functionality. We do NOT recommend installing new versions (> v2.0) on the 6000U series panel. Please confirm the model of panels receiving the installation before attempting the update. The 6000U series was available from 2017-2018 and will have a model number in this format L55EB, L65EB, L70EB, 75EB, or L86EB. As always, you can call Support for assistance.

Please refer to this guide for pushing the Collage App to all panels enrolled in the Command interface.
