Before using your ioBridge web gateway you need to create an ioBridge user account and then link your web gateway to your account. This tutorial shows you how to do this step-by-step. Refer to the IO-204 User Manual for additional information.
The first step is to sign up for a free ioBridge.com.
If you have an IO-204 Web Gateway visit www.iobridge.com and click on Sign In on the Home Page. Click on the Sign Up link as shown below.
Enter your information into the form and click the Create Account button. Check your email for a confirmation message from ioBridge.
The web gateway doesn’t have a power switch. It’s a piece of networking equipment that is meant to be on all the time. To power it up, just plug in a network cable and the power cord. Assuming the basic network requirements are met, the web gateway will get online by itself. Digits, increasing from 0 to 9, will be shown on the LED display and the Connectivity Status LED will turn green. The web gateway may restart itself and start the process over again if a connection attempt fails. (Note that the IO-204-PRO has different I/O channels but has the same layout.)
In order to configure the IO-204 or Gamma, it must be linked to an ioBridge user account. Linking a web gateway provides a means of authentication for a particular user to configure a web gateway.
Here are the steps for creating a user account link:
Plug in the power cord and network cable.
Wait for the connectivity indicator LED to turn green (may take a minute).
Go to www.iobridge.com and Sign In to your account.
Navigate to the “Modules” page and click “Link Module”. Note that the user interface refers to web gateways as Modules.
Follow the prompts on the website to finish the process.
The website will ask for the web gateway’s serial number found on the label. Also, when prompted, press and hold down the LINK button until the LED display begins to flash a hyphen. A series a numbers will be shown on the LED display. These numbers need to be entered into the website during the web gateway linking process. After a successful link is created, the LED display will go blank.
