Flash image

  1. Install Etcher.
  2. Download system image with OneMeter Gateway application.

    Polish localization 🇵🇱

    The image currently has polish keyboard layout, language and time zone.

    You can ignore it if you don't want to administrate the system. If you do want to, you can change localization.

  3. Insert microSD card into the reader connected to your computer.

  4. Select the downloaded .zip file with system image in Etcher.
  5. Select the drive corresponding to the microSD card.

    Make sure you selected the right drive. Its data will be overwritten completely!

  6. Burn the image onto the drive. This operation may take a while.

  7. Insert the memory card into the Raspberry Pi card slot.

✓ Done

Turn on device

Make sure the device is in an enclosure or is not placed directly on metal objects. If needed, connect keyboard and monitor (not required). Turn on the gateway by connecting it to the power supply. Wait a while for the system to boot (up to 30 seconds in a typical scenario).

(Optional) You can place heatsink on the CPU before connecting the gateway to the power supply for better heat dissipation.

✓ Done

Connect internet

(Optional) Connect the device directly to the router in your home network using an ethernet cable (RJ-45) instead of Wi-Fi.

Configure Wi-Fi

  1. Check the Access point name and Configuration address.
  2. Wait 2 minutes until the device is turned on.
  3. Take your phone or another computer. Find the network with Access point name in Wi-Fi settings and connect to it. If you see multiple networks, come closer to the Gateway and select the one with the highest signal strength.

    No internet connection

    Don't be afraid of no internet notifications. We only need to connect your computer with the Gateway for a while.

  4. Open Configuration address in the browser. Use http, not https (it's safely run locally).

  5. Select the Wi-Fi network you want to use and its password.

    I don't see my network on the list

    Enter the name manually (case-sensitive). Make sure it's valid. If it does not help, contact us.

    Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz

    The majority of compatible devices supports 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi only. If you don't see your network in the list, it's probably a 5 GHz network. Make sure your device works with 5 GHz.

    Most modern routers have both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks enabled which have similar names. The first contains the number 2 whereas the second contains the number 5 in the name (or is ended with 5G).

  6. Confirm. The device will be rebooted.

✓ Done

Reset Wi-Fi

In order to reset the Wi-Fi settings, read the instruction.
