The VergeSense wireless battery-powered sensor has flexible network configuration options. The Customer WiFi + Cloud Gateway option uses existing guest, IOT or standard WiFi networks you already have set up to make deployment of devices a breeze and ensure most stable wireless connectivity. This configuration does not require any hardware gateways on site. Simply install the sensor and turn it on for end-to-end connectivity.
*Customer WiFi (SSID and Authentication method) information needs to be provided to VergeSense prior to shipment.
