The Ethernet Gateway provides a connection between an iCAN network and an Ethernet LAN. This allows a user to control and configure the iLight system using iCANsoft on a LAN network PC or via the internet rather than by connecting directly into the iLight network. Where a wireless LAN is in place (or by connecting a wireless router into the Ethernet Gateway) the user can access the network with a Wi-Fi enabled PC.
The Ethernet Gateway is also the host for the iLight series of remote applications including iOS (iPhone®/ iPod touch®/ iPad®) and a webserver front end where applications are downloaded separately. Coupling the EG-2 to a WIFI network enables secure scene control, visual feedback and modification from your hand held device.
The Ethernet Gateway also facilitates connection to the internet when used with iCANsoft, a firewall, ISP and a Ethernet switch, this then enables remote connection for controlling, programming & obtaining diagnostics of the lighting control system.
