The JSON version can be used to automate the process. The following PowerShell script checks if all NUCs connected to a vCenter Server are running the latest BIOS version.

$nucLatestBios = Invoke-WebRequest -Uri http://www.virten.net/repo/nucLatestBios.json | ConvertFrom-Json
$vmHosts = Get-VMHost |? {$_.ConnectionState -eq "Connected"} |Get-View

Foreach ($vmHost in $vmHosts) {
 Foreach ($bios in $nucLatestBios.bios) {
  If ($vmHost.Hardware.BiosInfo.BiosVersion -match $bios.title) {
   $version = $vmHost.Hardware.BiosInfo.BiosVersion.Replace($bios.title,"").split(".")[1]
   if($bios.version -gt $version){
    Write-Host "$($VMHost.Name) ($($VMHost.Hardware.Systeminfo.Model)) running BIOS $($bios.title) Version $($version). Update to $($bios.version) available: $($bios.url)"
   } else {
    Write-Host "$($VMHost.Name) ($($VMHost.Hardware.Systeminfo.Model)) running BIOS $($bios.title) Version $($version). No Updates available."
   }
  }
 }
}
