The Gateway

Our gateway is a custom-built and self contained unit that we manage remotely. As a critical component to our solution, it needs to be placed in a position where it can serve a network for the sensors without structural impediments, ideally away from the core of the building. It will also need to have a good cellular reception in order for it to be able to reach our cloud servers as well as us remotely reach it.

Data Source

Power

Power for this gateway must be from a source that is constant and free from possible interruptions out of hours.

The gateway has a fixing holes to be wall mounted and comes with fitted gland for 230 VAC power. A mains cable for each gateway will need to be fitted and tested by an electrician appointed by the client before installation.

Network

Each gateway provides a LoRaWAN network for wireless desk and environmental sensors and a 802.11b WiFi network for our footfall counters. 

Each gateway also has a 4G connection that allows for us to remotely manage each while keeping them segregated from the client's network or infrastructure.
