The CAVIUS Gateway is designed as the “Hub” for the CAVIUS alarms on one frequency and to home automation devices such as door sensors and motion sensors on another frequency.
The Hub connected to the router in the home with the ethernet cable.
The Hub will act as any other alarm in the system.
It can be set to send out a test signal from the phone to the other alarms, just like the alarms can be by pushing the test button for 3 sweeps.
When the Hub receives an alarm, it will be forwarded to the phone, but not to other alarms.
The alarms from the wireless family are not depending on the Hub to be powered on or have internet connection. If the internet is down or the power disconnected, the alarms will still send alarm signals to each other and go into alarm if the signal is sent out, but the home automation sensors, like door and motion sensors, will not function until the hub is powered up and the internet is on again.
The CAVIUS Gateway trouble shooting guideline:
STEP 1: LED light
If the LED light flickers the Gateway cannot access the Internet and you should proceed with STEP 2.
If the LED light is off the Hub needs power. If the LED does not turn on after power plug-in, please contact the place of sales for assistance.
If the LED light is on and constant the Hub is connected to the Internet. If the hub does not work properly according to the manual, please contact the place of sales for assistance.
STEP 2: Internet connection
If the Hub is not able to connect to the Internet try to restart your home router or check with your local Internet provider for any fallouts in your area.
STEP 3: Does it work at your neighbour?
Before proceeding with more complicated steps, try connecting the hub to a router at another location. If the hub works elsewhere, then please proceed to step 4.
STEP 4: Checking the router ports
If the Internet is working, you should check the router ports. A home router typically has 1-4 LAN ports. The hub should be connected to one of those. If you use a WAN port, then it will not work, and if your home router has ports reserved for TV or service then they will not work either. You may have to check the router manual, or simply try another port. Some routers require you to login to your home router to enable more ports.
To test a port, connect your PC to the same port on your home router as the hub was plugged into and check for Internet connection.
STEP 5: Do you have to restart or update your Internet equipment?
Home routers are built as specialized computers with memory, software and therefore have data to process. The hub will continually try to communicate with router and is therefore often the first messenger with problems in your network. The router may work for some Wi-Fi connections, but not for others, due to network overload.
Having installed you own router behind equipment delivered by your Internet supplier to get more LAN ports is not a problem but will add to items to reboot and update.
STEP 6: Company controlled network
Company networks are often controlled by an IT-department and will sometimes make use of advanced home router settings. If you have received your router through your company’s IT-department, please contact them to check if such advanced router settings are in place.
Step 7: Advanced settings or router update
If none of the above steps works you either must proceed to advanced settings in your router or consider acquiring a new updated standard router.
That said, in rare cases you will have proceed to advanced settings in your network equipment.
- Is DHCP enabled?
- Are some MAC addresses blocked or filtered?
- Is UDP traffic enabled?
- Is UDP connections timeout above 40-60 seconds to avoid frequent fallouts?
