The Wi-Fi Connect Gateway is the interface between the Power Box and the Smappee cloud platform. This device allows users to view their energy via the Smappee online dashboard and the Smappee iPhone/Android phone app.
Unlike the Genius Gateway, the Wi-Fi Connect Gateway does not provide NILM (non-intrusive load monitoring), appliance control or Gas/Water monitoring. Furthermore, it does not support an Ethernet connection or 3G/4G USB dongle.
The Wi-Fi Connect Gateway is a lower-cost alternative to the Genius Gateway, where the additional features are not required.
In the event of a network outage, data will be stored for one day. It only transfers data and does not offer smart control or load balancing functionalities.
The Wi-Fi Connect is a cost-efficient way to add intelligence to the Smappee Infinity setup.
