- SETUP button, 10s press: If in GW Mode: Switch to CONF Mode
- SETUP button, 5s press: If in CONF Mode: Reboot
- RESET button, 5s press: Factory reset (wipe out WiFi credentials and LNS credentials) - Caution: Factory reset requires resetting the credentials on the server side as well to authorize the gateway to fetch new personalized credentials.
GREEN - blinking 1 sec - [GW Mode] WiFi STA not connected
GREEN - blinking 1/4 sec - [GW Mode] WiFi STA connected,establishing connection to LNS, configuring radio
GREEN - solid - [GW Mode] WiFi STA connected, GW connected to LNS, radio listening
GREEN/RED - blinking 1/4 sec - [GW Mode] WiFi STA connected, CONF transaction in progress, Note: Do not unplug device in that state(possibly a firmware upgrade in progress)
RED - blinking 1/4 sec - [CONF Mode] Scanning WiFi networks, setting up config AP
RED - blinking 1 sec - [CONF Mode] Config AP active
How do I power-up The Things Indoor Gateway?
There are two options to power the TIG, namely via the USB-C port (900mA required) or via the wall-plug adapter at the back-side of the enclosure.
What is the password of the configuration network?
You find the password on the sticker at the back-side of the enclosure labeled “WiFi PW”
What does the QR code on the sticker mean and what is it used for?
The QR code contains Serial number and MAC address. It is only used during manufacturing and has no relevance for the configuration of the gateway.
What is the EUI of the Gateway?
The EUI of the TIG is derived from the AP MAC address which is printed on the sticker labeled “(92)”. The EUI is the FFFE-extended MAC address (Examples: 58:A0:CB:80:00:00 -> 58-A0-CB-FF-FE-80-00-00). Note: In STA mode the ESP MAC Address is used (labeled “WiFi MAC” on the sticker)
How do I know that the TIG is connected to the LNS?
A solid green LED indicates an established connection to the LNS and readily configured radio.
What sort of WiFi networks are supported?
Please checkout the ESP8266 documentation for that.
Is WPS supported?
Not at the moment.
What does the “Add Network” input mean in the configuration web-interface?
You can directly specify the SSID of your network in the “Add Network” field, in case your network does not appear in the list (e.g. hidden network).
Where do I find official documentation on the TIG?
Official documentation will be released in due course.
Is the web-interface accessible in GW-Mode?
No. Due to the limited resources, the web-interface is not active in GW mode. The web-interface is only available in CONF mode. In fact, only a single TCP connection is handled at a time.
The LNS connection breaks down every 24 hours and comes back afterwards. Is this normal?
Yes. The Gateway contacts the Firmware Update Service in regular intervals (24 hours by default). During that request the LED will blink and the LNS connection is closed in order to free-up resources. As soon as the firmware update request is over, the LNS connection is established again and the LED switches back to solid green.
How do I check the status of the GW?
Check the LED state.
AP: WiFi access point
CONF Mode: configuration mode (using WiFi in AP mode)
GW Mode: gateway mode (normal operation, using WiFi in STA mode)
LNS: LoRaWAN Network Server
STA: WiFi station (client)
