Wireless Gateway Getting Started Guide


The Wireless Gateway configuration is simular to the WiFi Sensor.

No soldering or programming. Simply power it up and follow this 3 step configuration guide and your RF wireless sensors will be transmitting readings to your personal dashboard that is accessible through the internet. 

You can configure the Wireless Gateway using any device that supports WIFI and an internet browser. In this example we will use a desktop computer.

Step 1 : Connect to the WiFi Wireless Gateway

The first step is to connect the desktop PC to the WiFi Wireless Gateway . Power up the Wireless Gateway and using your computer (or device) look for a WIFI connection that starts with JRF followed by some numbers. These numbers are the unique ID of your sensor. Connect to the relay using the default password:

Password: WiFirelay

Step 2 : Configure SSID and Password

Now open up a browser and navigate to http://192.168.4.1/.



Next enter or select the SSID and Password of your WIFI router and click on save.

Wait a few seconds for the WIFI temperature sensor to connect to the WIFI router. If required, click on the "Login Details" menu option to refresh the screen. Once connected you will see the IP address has given to the WIFI sensor, as shown in the next image. In  the example below it shows 192.68.0.21, but yours will be different. Your WIFI sensor is now connected to the internet. 

Step 3 : Connect to PrivateEyePi

The next step is to connect your relay to PrivateEyePi so you can monitor sensors or create alerts. If you have not registered an account with PrivateEyePi, go to http://www.privateeyepi.com and click on "Create User". This is a free online service.

Now enter your PrivateEyePi email and password as shown in the next image.

Click "Save" and again wait for a few seconds for the WIFI sensor to connect, clicking on the "Login Details" menu option to refresh the screen. Once connected you will see "PEP: Connected" as shown in the image above. 
If screen shows "PEP: Not Connected" as in the image above, means the TOKEN is not correct. Retry your TOKEN. 

Next is optional, if you want your temperature readings in Fahrenheit or Celsius. Then Click on save.

The Sensor List tab will show sensor that the Wireless Gateway and heard and forwarded to the server.

You can now connect your computer or device back to your WIFI router so that you can access the internet. My network is called Guest (shown below) but you will connect to your network name.




You can now navigate to the Wireless Gateway through your WIFI network using its assigned IP address (in the above image it is 172.20.20.40 - yours will be different). 

Now navigate to PrivateEyePi and login to the dashboard. You will see your RF Sensors reporting on the Dashboard.
