EI Monitoring WITH Gateway 2.0
Learn how to create the connection between EI Monitoring Service and the most powerful gateway.
Enable internet connection
First of all is important to connect our Gateway 2.0 to a network. This can be done in one of two ways:
- Connect the Gateway directly to the modem using an ethernet cable.
- Connect the Gateway using Wi-Fi trough a wireless network. You can learn how with the steps below:
1- If your gateway receiver is new and does not have any configuration yet, it will emit a Wifi network called “EIPHANTOMGW“, connect to the network.
2- If necessary enter the Gateway’s default password which is 8 times the number 8 (88888888).
3- Once connected to the network, go to the web browser of your choice, and enter in the address bar the following IP address: 192.168.4.1
4- This will load the Gateway 2.0 settings screen. If the Gateway is not yet configured to send data to any specific location, it will appear in red.
5- On the left side of the settings screen go to the “General” tab. Here click on the “Enable WiFi” option. And some fields will appear.
6- Click on “SCAN WIFI NETWORKS“, the button will change to the loading symbol, this means it is scanning. Wait until it finishes.
7- In the “WiFI network” section, expand the list and select the wifi network. Then enter the password on the “Wifi Password” section.
Enable EI-Monitoring connection
When the gateway gets connected to the network with cable or wifi, connect the computer to the same network, and install and open EI-Monitoring service. The next steps will need for you to use the software.
At the bottom, activate the “Send data to EI-Monitoring” option and the “Static Monitor” option as well. Now, enter the IP address of the EI-Monitoring software
To get the Static Monitor IP; you need to open EI-Monitoring Service and then check in the “configuration” tab with the “Get IP Address” tool.
Type the IP address shown on the EI Monitoring Service. (In the image is not the same, just for illustrative purposes).
Once finished, click “SAVE“, a message will appear at the top of the screen, click “ACEPTAR” to confirm the changes.
The Gateway will restart and after a few seconds the screen will show a new IP address, and the caption “Mon:” with the EI-Monitoring IP address
By following these steps your Gateway will be able to make a successful connection to EI-Monitoring System. If any of these steps are not shown as presented in the tutorial or you have any questions about any part of the process; do not hesitate to contact Erbessd Instruments Technical Support.
