Understanding the Ethernet gateway - Amazon Monitron

Understanding the Ethernet gateway

The Amazon Monitron Ethernet Gateway comes equipped with an RJ-45 socket, so you can connect it to your Ethernet network using a Cat 5e or Cat 6 Ethernet cable. You will power your gateway over the Ethernet cable, using Power over Ethernet (POE). Therefore, you will need either a router that supports POE or a POE power injector.

After you have inserted an Ethernet cable into your gateway, put the gateway in commissioning mode by pressing the Config button.

Reading the LED lights on an Ethernet gateway

The LED lights on the top of your Amazon Monitron Ethernet Gateway indicate the status of the gateway. Each gateway has one orange light, one blue light, and one green light. The green light indicates that the power is on. The orange light indicates that the gateway is connected to the Ethernet. The blue light indicates that the gateway's Bluetooth is connected to the sensors.

The sequence that the lights display indicates the status of the gateway, as described in the following table.
