Watch Setup Tutorials

1. Connect digiGate to Gates

Every electric gate has a control board which is usually positioned at the gate in a waterproof box.

digiGate connects to this control board using 2 switch cables at points 1 (NO) and 2 (COM). These cables can be any length and thickness (we recommend 0.2mm cable).

digiGate must be kept waterproof inside an IP rated box and the gate must be set to auto close by itself.

2. Connect Power Supply

digiGate comes with a choice of 3 different power options:

a) Standard micro USB plug where a nearby socket is available.

b) 110/230v to 5v 3A transformer + cable where you take the mains power from the gate itself.

c) POE splitter (ethernet & power) where you have a POE sourced cat5/6 cable to the digiGate.

Power supply type is chosen when purchasing.

3. Connect to the Internet

Connect to the Internet using the built in Ethernet port (recommended) or included WiFi dongle. Upgrade to a larger digiGate WiFi antenna for maximum outdoor WiFi range (~35m).

Powerline Ethernet adapters or WiFi extenders are recommended for areas without a connection.

No broadband nearby?
Create your own WiFi hotspot at the gate with a 4G MiFi Device. We recommend the Huawei E8372h with an EE, 3 or O2 SIM.

Users opening with a phone call do not need to download the app and are not charged when calling.

Will digiGate work on my gates?
digiGate will work if your gates accept a timer input (99% of controllers do) and have auto closing enabled. View our full compatibility list.

I have no WiFi or Ethernet at my gates, can digiGate work for me?
Yes. Ethernet-over-power devices can be used at the gates and also WiFi extenders.

Is digiGate waterproof?
No, digiGate will need to be housed in an IP rated waterproof enclosure.
The one your gate control board is located in is usually large enough for digiGate as well.
