WHY DO I NEED ORPHEK MASTER GATEWAY 2 ?

You will need the Orphek (IoT) Master Gateway to connect your unit(s) to the internet.
Here is how it works. ?
Think about the Gateway 2 as private cloud /server. The Gateway can store a program for up to 200 units, and each one could have a different program, The Gateway also acts as firewall and uses internal protocol to talk with your light, so there is no access to your network! Here is how it works. The Gateway talks with the light via internal protocol called long tooth which is simioar to blue tooth but it’s range extends up to 40 meters in an open room. This is private protocol and only the Gateway can talk with the unit and this is why need the Gateway. You cannot connect to the Gateway directly from your phone so you must connect the Gateway to the router. The phone/tablet talks to the router and then the router passes the information to the Gateway then the Gateway converts the information to internal protocol and talks to the light(s). In this regard the lights are not part of your network. Security is very important these days!
What if the Gateway is shut off ?
If gateway is shut off, the program in the light will continue to operate. Mobile phone App sets: time, intensity and other parameters and sends to the gateway and wifi module. Time and intensity data for the program that is sent to the light are stored in the wireless module program flash memory located on the PC card in the light. If you close your phone app the program sent to the light will also continue to work. If the gateway is powered off, the choose program or function list will be lost. With power on the gateway with Ethernet cable connected you can choose the program you want to send to the light from the phone app. So with the gateway off or a gateway failure, only the program in the light will operate.
