    Switchbot have missed a workaround here that is less impactful on the user than going for a factory reset. If one of two grouped curtains won't updated, ungroup the curtains, then you should find the faulty curtain will now upgrade, then regroup and recalibrate the curtains. This removes the need to lose your third party integrations and rules that you have set up.

    I had to simply turn off my WiFi and switch to my data plan and it worked flawlessly. I'm not sure why or what on my network or ISP is blocking the firmware download but it's worth a try if you're having this issue!
