Link a Device to your Gateway
This guide will show you how to link your device(s) to the Polar Gateway on the Polar Portal. The guide is a continuation of “Polar Portal Gateway Connection Guide” which shows you how to connect the Polar Gateway to the Polar Portal.
This article will guide you on how to link all the devices connected to your Gateway so they can all be monitored remotely using your mobile phone, tablet, laptop or your desktop computer that is connected to the internet.
Steps to follow:
- Add your first device.
- View device dashboard.
1. Add your first device
Assuming that you have correctly set up the Gateway and that it’s working correctly, the next big step for us is to link your first device which is wired to the Polar Gateway.
Note: If this is a new Gateway it will not show any devices, if this is an existing gateway and you are altering the setup, the existing devices will be listed in the table.
Click either of the two buttons to add a new device.
1.1. Select the device type which you want to add.
Choose the device model you have wired to the Gateway.
1.2. Insert the Sensor Number of your device.
This would correspond to the Modbus UnitID or Serial Network ID or Slave ID settings programmed on the device. (This number has to be unique per device connected to the gateway).
1.3. Insert the name of the device you are liking.
Please make this a relevant and meaningful name as this will be used to identity the device in the future.
1.4. Insert device description.
Add details about the device, what it does, model number, serial number do, or any other additional information about the device you are adding. (Optional)
Then hit the “LINK DEVICE” button.
After linking a device succcessfully, it will be shown in the list. Make sure the status of the device is not showing an error. If it does make sure the Serial Communications Settings are correctly set. (Click on the ? button to get device specific communication help. Also refer to the device specific setup manual to make sure you have set all the communication settings correctly).
This will then navigate you to the devices page filtered by your Gateway as show below.
Your newly added device will now appear on the device list as shown above.
2. View device dashboard
In order to view the device. You will need to click on the “Dashboard” button.
