Configure bridges with your WiFi-credentials

Sensorfact has already configured your bridges if you have shared your WiFi-credentials upfront the hardware shipment. Before configuring your bridges, ensure your ports and firewalls have been configured.

To configure your bridges, you need the following:

  • PC or Laptop
  • Sensorfact Bridges
  • A USB flash drive (FAT32 formatted), preferably blank
  • Network name (SSID) and password

Configuration steps

Step 1. Upload network credentials to USB flash drive

  • Create a new .txt file with notepad, named 'wifi.txt'.
  • In this file, add the Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password 
    • Example network name;password
      • Separate SSID and password by a semicolon (“;”)
      • SSID and password both are case sensitive
      • Do not add extra spaces before or after the SSID or password
  • Save file on USB flash drive

Step 2. Configure your Sensorfact bridges

  • Insert the USB flash drive into the bridge
  • Wait for a 30+ seconds
  • Remove the USB flash drive from the bridge

After configuring your first bridge, check whether configuration was successful (step 3).
Then repeat step 2 for all bridges.

Step 3. Check the configuration

1. Check files on the USB flash drive on a computer

If the configuration went well, you will see a new file named 'mac-addresses-XXXX.txt'. The XXXX are the 4 characters of the bridge ID and thus vary from bridge to bridge. An example is: 'mac-addresses-82DF.txt'.’ If needed, these MAC-addresses can be used to register the bridges to your network.  

In case you don’t see this .txt file, initiate step 2 again. Ensure the USB flash drive is inserted substantially longer than 30 seconds. 

2.  Check if the bridge can connect to the Sensorfact Platform, following these instructions
