Installing the Connectivity Units¶
An IP65 box containing a 4G WiFi Access point with two external dipole antennas. Additionally:
- Mounting fittings
- SIM card adaptor
- Ethernet cable
- User manual
How much data is needed
At the maximum data rates (Smart Citizen Station with all sensors - 35 metrics) we estimate 300bytes per payload (approx. without accounting for protocol overhead). It would be then safe to say that, per month and device, at maximum we need around 15MB. This means that with a data plan for 200MB/month you could have around 13 devices!
Step by step
- Open the box with the safety key provided. You should see this inside
- Before powering the unit, place the SD card in the slot. You can use the adaptor if needed
- Take the stickers out for the antennas holes and pass them through, leaving the washers as seen below:
- Power on the unit, and then press the power button in the back. The SSID and the Password for the deployed network should be visible on the AP. Enjoy!
Reconfigure the AP
Follow the instructions in the quick installation guide provided to reconfigure the SSID and Password.
