The scalable wireless mesh network using our IoT infrastructure can manage over 18,000 sensors per building. Sensor data is collected and transferred via a gateway either to an Enlighted Manage in the Cloud (EMC) or an on-premise version. All data is transferred to Manage in the cloud for processing and reporting.
The key physical components are depicted below:
The following is a simplified diagram showing the placement of Enlighted devices such as sensors, control units, gateways, ERC switches, and Manage on-prem servers in a multi-floor building.
For a detailed technical deployment illustration, see the

Refer to the Gateway Installation Guide for installing the Gateway.
For outdoor installations the Gateway must be mounted indoors and remote the antenna. For more information refer to Gateway Antenna Selection Guidelines.
The Gateway product, GW-2-01 is not to be mounted outdoors. The Gateway device must be installed indoors. Please note the Gateway is rated for 0 - 50°C. A watertight enclosure does little to ensure the Gateway operates within the stated temperature requirement. If an application is required for outdoor sensors, the Gateway should be mounted on an interior wall and via cable connect to any outdoor omni-directional antenna with a gain of up to 11dBi or less can be used.
Only Enlighted registered partners and customers have access to download and upgrade firmware images on a Gateway. Refer to the list of available Gateway Firmware Images.

Weatherproof Gateway Enclosure (ENCL_GW)
Note: This product is no longer supported (EoL) by Enlighted with immediate effect, April 13, 2022. Refer to Gateway Bulletin Outdoor Enclosure for more information.
When the Enlighted Gateway (GW) is mounted in an outdoor environment, the Gateway should be installed in a weatherproof enclosure to prevent it from any external damage. Enlighted has tested and approved the use of the ATTABOX AH864C as a Gateway enclosure (ENCL_GW) and can be purchased to use with the Enlighted Gateway (GW‐2‐01).
ATTABOX – Heartland Series Enclosures
Refer to the AH864C Specs.
The Heartland (AH) 8 x 6 x 4 inches polycarbonate enclosures are for use in both interior and exterior applications. The enclosure protects the Enlighted Gateway from dust, rain, splashing water, waves, and hose directed water with superior impact and flame protection. The Gateway is rated for 32° to 122° F / 0° to 50° C and rests in the bottom of the box; drill a knock out anywhere in the box for the low voltage (LV) wire to enter the box.
Heartland Enclosure Features:
- NEMA 4X non‐metallic enclosure
- Clear and opaque lids
- Rated IP66
- Rated Type 1, 3R, 4, 4X, 12
- Rated F1 UV‐light
- Rated UL94-V0 flammability
- Easy to remove the lid
- High-performance inserts
- Integrated lock hasp
- Molded-in bosses
- Multi‐directional mounting feet
- Latches and hinges do not penetrate the enclosure.
- Flush‐fit side mount swing panel and DIN rail system.

Nipple Mount External/Internal Control Unit (North America only)Control Unit (CU-4E-NME/NMI) Spec Sheet Rev.07. Intended for field installations, mounted on the side in the junction box using the nipple, or mounted outside of the fixture. Two versions are available, NME (Nipple mount external), where the sensor is external to the fixture, NMI (Nipple mount internal). the sensor is mounted internal to the fixture.
Fixture Mount Control Unit for DALI drivers (Europe only): CU-4D-FM
In support of our traditional 8-pin sensors and enabling hardware energy metering of traditional DALI drivers, the Fixture Mount Control Unit for DALI drivers is available ONLY in the EU countries accepting the CE mark. Please note that the Control Unit for DALI incorporates the DALI PSU, so there is no need to procure a separate PSU. The Control Unit for DALI does NOT support Tunable White (DT8) or Emergency Lighting (DT1) functions, but it has the ability to meter energy.

Gigabit Smart Managed PoE Switch (SW-POE-8-8-NAS-1)
The Gigabit Smart Managed Switch (DGS-1210-10MP), sourced from D-Link, can be used with the Enlighted Gateways, and it provides data switching power for the Enlighted IoT network.
Refer to the D-Link website for details; Product Code: SW-POE-8-8-NAS-1
What is different with the D-Link PoE switch than the previous switches?The D-Link PoE switch is larger than the previous switches and can support higher PoE wattage devices (PoE Budget of 130 Watts), such as People Counting sensors.
Is there any Registration or special programming required to use this switch?The D-Link switch is an Out-of-the-Box switch that does not require any Registration or manual setup.
The switch has two SFP ports available. Can those ports be used?Enlighted supports using the managed ports numbered 1 through 8 only. Ports 9 & 10 (SFP Ports) should not be used, and the plugs in those ports should not be removed. Daisey Chaining multiple switches through the managed ports is allowed. Daisey Chaining through the SFP ports is not supported by Enlighted.
What are the options for mounting this switch?
The images show the Rack Mount and Wall Mount options using the mounting bracket that comes with the switch. Also, install rubber pads if the PoE switch is going to be placed on a Desk or flat surface.

- PLCs are installed near the outlet or load they control, and they must be wired properly to the outlet.
- Place the PLC in the electrical closet or near an electrical panel for easy access and visibility.
- Plug Load Controller should be installed within the gateway's wireless range and close to any sensor of the group they belong to.
- PLCs need to hear from only one sensor and do not need to hear from all sensors in the group.
- The controlling sensor should belong to the same motion group to which the Gateway is assigned. Make sure the sensor is placed near the closet.
For floor outlets, the PLC must not be buried in the floor.
