Quick Start - Treon Gateway in Protective Enclosure
Jul 27, 2023 · 11 minutes to read
When there is a need for high density of connected devices, a mesh network is the perfect solution for connectivity. In a mesh network, devices transmit their own sensor data and act as a relay for other devices. Relays provide the best and most efficient communication path to a gateway.
Treon Gateway connects a mesh of a few to hundreds of wireless devices to a backend. It exchanges data with the mesh network and can process, store and send data to in-premise or cloud backends. Gateway can be connected to the internet over a wired Ethernet connection or wirelessly over a Wi-Fi or Cellular (NB-IoT, CatM1 or 2G) connection.
In protective enclosure, you can place Treon Gateway in environments, outdoor or industrial, that require higher degree of water and dust protection.

- Pull RJ45 cable through cable gland cap and install rubber sealing around cable. Push rubber sealing inside RJ45 cable gland.
- Attach the Ethernet cable to RJ45 connector (I).
- Adjust the cable length to appropriate length and tighten the RJ45 cable gland cap.
- Close the lid and tighten the screws.
Use a cellular connection
- Open the protective enclosure lid as described in step 1.
- Put your fingernail in the seam between the lid of the SIM card slot (J) and the back cover and remove the lid.
- Slide the SIM card holder to the right until it unlocks, and lift the holder up.
- Place the micro SIM card in the holder with the contact area face down, and close the holder.
- Slide the holder to the left until it locks into place, and put back the lid of the SIM card slot.
- Close the protective enclosure lid and tighten the screws.
Use a Wi-Fi connection
Open the configuration mode and set up a Wi-Fi connection as instructed in step 4.
Power up the gateway
Make sure that the power cable is attached to the gateway (H) and close the protective enclosure lid. Plug the gateway in a wall outlet.
The gateway switches on automatically. Use only the power supply unit provided together with the product.
Status light (A) colours:
Green light The gateway is connected to the internet
Blue light The gateway is trying to establish a connection to the internet.

4 Configure the gateway
- Open the protective enclosure lid as described in step 1. Plug the gateway back in a wall outlet.
- Press the configuration button (K) until the status light (A) starts blinking. The gateway becomes a Wi-Fi access point.
- Using your phone, computer, or tablet, connect to the access point: select treongw1-serialnumber, where serialnumber is the serial number of your gateway.
- Enter your password. It has been provided separately with the gateway. Windows 10 may ask for a pin code as a primary access point password. Please use the “password” option instead. Remember to change the password later.
- Open the browser on your phone or computer and go to address 192.168.0.1
- Make the needed configurations. You can, for example, change the gateway access
point password, check the error log, and set up a Wi-Fi connection.
- To exit the configuration mode, select Quit, or press and hold the configuration button (K) until the status light stops blinking.
