Sensor Push's G1 WiFi Gateway enables you to monitor your SensorPush sensors remotely from anywhere via the Internet!

With the included cloud service (no monthly fee), you'll have the full SensorPush experience, accuracy and ease of use, no matter where you are, so long as you have internet access at your location. Receive current conditions, alerts and even the full data history just as if you were monitoring locally.

It's perfect for keeping an eye on humidity and temperature in your Acoustic Remedy humidor and get peace of mind knowing instrument collection is safe while you're away.

WiFi Frequency Band:  2.4 GHz

Product Features

Wifi Access to Data

All Sensor Push sensors use Bluetooth LE to communicate, so without a Gateway the range is limited to Bluetooth range (e.g. around the house). This works well if you only need the data while on site with the sensor. If you would like to monitor SensorPush sensors remotely (e.g. away from the house), you need to use them in conjunction with a SensorPush WiFi Gateway. The Gateway relays the data of any in-range SensorPush sensors to the internet using your local WiFi or Ethernet to your network.


Simple Set Up

The simple setup process connects your G1 WiFi Gateway to the internet, via WiFi or Ethernet and links it to your SensorPush cloud account. This account is included with the purchase of a G1 WiFi gateway and is easily created during setup.

Once online, the gateway receives data via Bluetooth from any in-range SensorPush sensors and relays that information to our web-based service (a.k.a. "the cloud").


Multiplicity

Multiple gateways on one account? No problem. Multiple phones monitoring one account? Of course. Just log each device in with the same email address and password and your data is instantly synchronized across devices for easy access by family members, employees, house sitters or anyone you wish.


Immediate Updates

When a sensor is renamed or alert settings are changed, the updates are reflected on all connected devices within moments. When you add new sensors, just pair them with one device. The gateway and all other devices will automatically import them and begin monitoring right away.


Improves Battery Life of Sensors

If all of your sensors are within range of a G1 WiFi gateway, you can now disable Bluetooth within the SensorPush app, or even on your phone (once setup is complete) for improved battery life.


Online Dashboard

Added data visualization tools and other features such as email alerts that can only be enabled through internet access. Multiple emails can be alerted simultaneously.

 

SET UP AND USE

Below are a few pointers to help you setup (a.k.a. pair) your new gateway when it arrives:

    Make sure you have the latest version of the SensorPush app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

    Once you've downloaded or updated the app, remove the gateway and power adapter from the packaging.

  Verify that your WiFi network is using 2.4GHz or is in "dual band" mode (both 2.4GHz and 5GHz). 2.4GHz is the most common type of WiFi, so if you are unsure, you likely already have 2.4GHz.

    Locate the Gateway somewhere central to the sensors you want to monitor so the Gateway has the best chance of picking up the signals coming from the sensors. Power up the Gateway and raise the antenna.

    Open the SensorPush app to the main screen (the main screen says "Devices" at the top) and tap the Add button. This is the same button previously used to add sensors. Now it will present you with a choice to add a sensor or a gateway. Tap the Add Gateway option.

    Now the phone will form a temporary connection to the gateway. This might take a minute or two. If it takes longer than that, please try restarting the phone and gateway and trying again. If you still cannot connect, let us know and we'll be happy to help.

    Once you're connected, you'll be prompted to create an account (or log in if you have already created one).

    Next, choose a WiFi network and enter a password (if necessary). After the gateway has connected you should see a green checkmark next to the network in the list.
Note: If you have an older router and a Hex Based WEP password, you must have the prefix "0x" in front of the password (and the "0" in "0x" is a zero).

    You can also connect via Ethernet instead of using WiFi. Just plug in the Ethernet cable (DHCP is required) and wait for the "Connected via Ethernet" message to appear on the Gateway configuration screen. There is a known issue where in some situations plugging or unplugging Ethernet while the device is running interrupts the sensor scanning. We're working on tracking down the issue and will be pushing out an update soon. In the meantime, if you are affected, please power-cycle the gateway after plugging or unplugging Ethernet.

    Give your gateway a name if you like and you're all set.

    Please try to keep the app up to date for best performance.

NEXUS 6P WIFI DIRECT ISSUES

Please note: There is currently an issue with the Nexus 6P and WiFi Direct. This issue prevents the Nexus 6P from being able to configure the G1 WiFi Gateway.

The system will work normally with the Nexus 6P otherwise, but you will need to use a different device to set up your gateway. Once finished, you can log into the account you create during setup from the SensorPush app settings on your Nexus 6P. Access this screen using the button in the upper-left corner of the main screen of the app. Then tap "Log In" and enter the email address and password you created during gateway setup.

We apologize for any inconvenience. For more information, please see these resources: Android Issue Tracker (232695) | Android Issue Tracker (232714).

Android forum member reported that the Android 7.1.2 beta resolves this issue, so it is likely no longer a problem. Furthermore, this does not apply to the majority of our customers as most devices use a newer version of Android.
