LL-BST-8 Gateways

Step 1: Turn on the gateway

Connect the antennas.

Connect the 915-MHz antenna to the gateway's UHF antenna jack. Connect the Wifi or cellular antenna to the Wifi or Cell jack (for Wifi / cell enabled models only).

Apply power.

Connect one end of the wall-plug adapter to the gateway's Power port and the other end to an electrical outlet.

Step 2: Access the gateway's local webpage

Connect a PC.

Wait a minute for the gateway to bootstrap, then connect a PC to the local Ethernet jack (the middle one) using the provided Ethernet cable.

Navigate to the local webpage.

On the connected PC, open a browser and navigate to Log in using username "admin" and password "password."

The gateway's local webpage appears.

The local webpage provides an interface to view the status of the gateway, to connect it to the Internet, and to register the gateway with a Conductor account.

Step 3: Connect the gateway to the Internet

To connect via wired Ethernet...

Connect a DHCP-enabled network to the gateway's LAN Ethernet jack (the one closest to the serial connector).

In the Wired Network tab, select the Enabled checkbox. Click Submit.

After a few moments, the Wired Network tab updates with the connection information.

To connect using WiFi (WiFi-enabled models only) ...

In the Wireless tab of the local webpage, select the Enabled checkbox.

Select a Wifi network from the SSID dropdown listbox and enter the password in the SHARED KEY editbox. Click Submit.

After a few moments, the Wireless tab updates with the connection information.

To connect using Cellular (cellular-enabled models only) ...

The cellular-enabled model of the indoor gateway (LL-BST-8-915-SYM-G-I-US) includes a GSM modem. To use cellular option, first insert a SIM card in the gateway.

Step 4: Register the gateway with Conductor

This step connects your gateway to your web-based Conductor account.

Register the gateway.

Once the gateway is connected to the Internet, click the Register Gateway button in the Symphony Registration section of the local webpage.

The Conductor Login prompt appears. Enter your credentials and click the Login button. Or, if you do not have a Conductor account, click the Create User button and follow the directions to make an account.

The Register Gateway prompt appears.

In this example, we're going to register the gateway with a new Symphony Link Network. (But if you want, you can simply register the gateway with the Open Gateway network.) Click the Create Network button.

Conductor populates a new, unique network to the list. In this example, it is Network xB36E. Click the Register button.

The prompt disappears and the Symphony Registration section of the local webpage updates. It shows the gateway is registered with the newly created network. (You may need to refresh your browser.)

How do I insert a SIM card into a cellular-enabled LL-BST-8?

The cellular-enabled gateway requires a GSM mini-SIM to connect to a cellular network.

Remove power.

Remove the four screws, which secure the lid of the enclosure. Then remove the lid and set it aside.

Remove cellular modem

The cellular modem is the module installed in the center of the gateway. To remove it, simply pull the spring tabs away from the module while putting very light, upwards pressure on the module. The module will spring upwards once it's completely clear of the spring tabs.

Insert the SIM card.

Insert your GSM mini-SIM card into the SIM-card holder (the mini-SIM is sometimes called a "Regular" SIM) with the contacts facing the modem. The SIM-card holder is located on the bottom side of the cellular modem module.

Re-install cellular modem

Plug the cellular modem module back into it's socket at a downward angle. Then press the module down into the spring tabs until they hold the module down.

Replace the lid.

Replace the lid and screws.

For older units without a SIM card slot on the cellular modem module.

If there is a SIM card slot on the cellular modem module, that SIM card slot must be used. If there is no SIM card slot on the cellular modem module, the SIM card will need to be installed on the underside of the motherboard.
