Setting up sensors, gateways, locations, accounts, and organizations

Solar gateway setup - Legacy

Connect battery:

  • Remove the top cover of the box with a phillips head driver
  • Connect the male and female 5.5mm connectors
  • The gateway should power on, do not press any buttons
  • You will know the power is on when a green light on the front of the gateway is illuminated
  • If gateway does not immediately power on, complete the setup and leave in direct sunlight for 4 hours

Connect solar panel:

  • Align the screws on the solar panel to the mounting holes on the sheet metal bracket, and secure with wing nuts
  • Connect the solar panel cable to the box by aligning the keyed connector and finger tightening the threaded parts on the connector

Mount solar kit assembly (If using magnet kit):

  • Use the holes on the sheet metal bracket to mount the assembly to a pole, fence, wall or steel tank with the magnet option
  • For best performance:
    • Install with panel facing true south
    • Mount at head level or higher
    • Ensure line of sight with sensor if possible
    • Avoid masonry or thick metal walls
