Start - Gateway information

Knowing IP address

Using any IP scanner to search your network subnet and locate the gateway IP address. The gateway hostname is configured to iqube.

Boot and power-off

The gateway boot process takes about 30s and it takes additonal 10s before Gateway led described in below chapter Led operation is stabilized.
It is recommended to power-off the gateway using Gateway button described in below chapter Button and then unplug the power supply. It takes about 30s to shutdown the device completely. This ensures correct power-off of the device.

Led operation

IQD-GW-01

There are 2 two-colour leds available on the gateway. IQRF led and Gateway led. Gateway led follows these rules:

  • Green led slow flashing means that IQRF Gateway daemon is running in operational/forwarding mode.
  • Green led fast flashing means that IQRF Gateway daemon is running in service mode.
  • Red led slow flashing means that IQRF Gateway daemon service is not running.
  • Red led fast flashing means that IQRF Gateway daemon interface is not correctly configured.

Button

While button is being pressed green led is on.
  • after 2s of being pressed red led flashes 1x: selected daemon api call is executed upon button release
  • after 6s of being pressed red led flashes 2x: gateway poweroff is executed upon button release
  • after 10s of being pressed red led flashes 3x: gateway factory setting is executed upon button release
Tip: Daemon API call for execution upon button release can be configured in config/controller UI page.
Tip: Use the button to poweroff the gateway gracefully in order to preserve the SD card.
