The emonTH2 firmware is based on Arduino.
New: Support for three different radio formats is available: JeeLib Classic, JeeLib Native and LowPowerLabs.
Updating firmware using an emonPi/emonBase
The easiest way of updating the emonTh2 firmware is to connect it to an emonPi or emonBase with a USB to UART cable and then use the firmware upload tool available at
Setup > Admin > Update > Firmware.
The example images below show the earlier Wicked Device / OpenEnergyMonitor Programmer. The programmer is the small board that plugs in to the emonTh2 on the 6-pin UART header. The newer programmer currently available in the shop needs to be orientated the other way around. Make sure that GND on the programmer matches up with GND on the emonTh2 board.
Refresh the update page after connecting the USB cable. You should now see port ttyUSB0 appear in the ‘Select port` list.

Upload using avrdude
Pre compiled firmware can be uploaded using a USB to UART programmer and avrdude:
avrdude -uV -c arduino -p ATMEGA328P -P /dev/ttyUSB0 -b 115200 -U flash:w:firmware.hex
How to compile and upload firmware
PlatformIO Command Line
PlatformIO works great from the command line. See the excellent PlatformIO Quick Start Guide for installation instructions.
