Installing a Gateway

The Gateway is needed to let the GoBright Connect communicate with the GoBright Platform.

Requirements

The Gateway has a range of approximately 40 meters in an open field and as a rule-of-thumb 20 meters in an office environment. Please be aware that the wireless range always heavily depends on building structure, interference, etc.

It is important to place the Gateway in the open space, much like you would mount a WiFi access point in the open space. A Gateway needs to be connected to the internet via a wired connection and needs NTP synchronization to be able to work.

A Gateway can handle have up to 100 joined Connects.

Installation steps

In general, the installation itself is kept as easy as possible. There are three steps to install the gateway.

  • Connect the Gateway
  • Configure a Gateway Profile
  • Configure a Gateway Device

Connect the Gateway

The Gateway needs to be connected to a 220-230V Power Outlet and an ethernet cable that has access to the network. It has 4 LED's on top that represents the current status. The Gateway takes around 3-5 minutes to boot, the power and dot LED should be lit a constant green when activated.

Status of the Gateway

The Gateway has 4 LED's which show the state of the gateway.

When the combination of lights are displayed, the Gateway has the following status:

NTP time synchronization requirements

The Gateway needs NTP (Network Time Protocol) synchronization to work. So before the Gateway can be activated or work at all, NTP should work. Please review this article to configure these settings.
