Z Sensor: How to Connect the Z Sensor to the Z Gateway
The Z Sensor relies on a properly-functioning Z Gateway to ensure successful data transmission. The Z Sensor does not require access to a cellular network, only to the Z Gateway.
Steps to connect a Z Sensor to a Z Gateway:
1. Ensure that your Z Gateway is turned on, and has a working cellular connection.
Note: If the Status light is blinking single or double green, your connection is functioning properly.
2. To turn on the Z Gateway, use a pen tip or a pin to push the On/Off button, which is located by the power cord on the device.
3. Ensure that the Z Sensor is within range of a working Z Gateway. The typical range is 1000 feet with a direct line of sight, and 300 feet with obstructions.
4. Within one minute of pressing the On/Off button, the Z Sensor automatically connects to the closest working Z Gateway.
5. The status light flashes a single green blink when a successful connection has been established.
Note: Different light schemes may indicate connection issues. The following table identifies the possible scenarios. If you continue experiencing LED issues, please review our Z Sensor Troubleshooting Guide.
