Now the SensorPush G1 WiFi Gateway enables you to monitor your SensorPush sensors remotely from anywhere via the Internet!
With the SensoPush included cloud service (no monthly fee), you'll have the full SensorPush experience, accuracy and ease of use, no matter where you are! 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 conditions at home or at a vacation property while you're away. Make sure your Chickens, Incubator Eggs, Pets greenhouse, cigars or wine collection is safe while you're at work. Whatever the situation, when you need to monitor environmental conditions from afar, the SensorPush G1 WiFi Gateway has you covered.
How Does it Work?
SensorPush 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.
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").
The SensorPush app can then retrieve the data from the internet, so you can access it from anywhere. As before, the system has been designed to be as flexible as possible. 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.
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.
Additionally, 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.
Lastly, we designed the gateway to work seamlessly with the existing sensors, so those of you who have already purchased our sensors are all set.

The outer diameter of the barrel connector is 5.5mm and the inner is 2.1mm. Also, there is an alternative method for powering the Gateway. If you have a male-to-male USB cable and a phone charger with 5 volts / 2 amps you can power the gateway via its USB port.
|Cloud API||Here is a link to the docs for the SensorPush Gateway cloud API. In order to gain access, you need to log in to the Gateway web dashboard and accept the terms.|
|Port forwarding||For outbound ports it's: 80, 443, and UDP port 123 (NTP). All network connections are encrypted and no incoming ports are required to be opened on the Gateway.|
|MAC Address||MAC address information is available in the app during set up. It will appear once the Gateway has connected to the mobile device during configuration. To obtain MAC address information for a Gateway that's already set up in the app, first make sure you are on site with the gateway (e.g. same room). Then, open the app to the main screen, select the Gateway from among the devices and then select the "configure" option. The app will then temporarily connect your mobile device to the Gateway using Bluetooth and provide you with MAC address information.|
|Networking options||Whether using WiFi or Ethernet, your network needs to be able to configure clients automatically via DHCP. Static IP addresses and other custom settings are not available at this time. With WiFi, you’ll be able to use WPA/WPA2, WEP, or open networks. Web-based WiFi authentication (like you often see in a hotel, for instance) is not supported at this time.|
