Gateway

1. Before starting

Make sure you’ve downloaded the app and created your Hilo account.

2. Gateway interface

  • L1: Indicator light
  • C1: 5 V DC power supply
  • C2: Ethernet port
  • B1: Button

3. Initial run

  1. After installation, the gateway will connect with your Hydro-Québec smart meter. The indicator light (L1) will be yellow and will blink rapidly during this operation (which can take up to two days).
  2. Once the connection is established, the indicator light will be green.

 

4. Pairing a thermostat or device

  1. Press the button on the gateway (B1). The indicator light (L1) will turn blue and blink slowly, signalling that the pairing session is now open for 30 minutes.
  2. Put the thermostat/device in pairing mode by following the instructions provided.
  3. When the gateway detects the thermostat/device, the indicator light becomes turquoise and continues to blink.
  4. Once the thermostat/device is paired with the gateway, the indicator light turns back to blue.
  5. Wait about 30 seconds, then refresh the Devices screen in the app by swiping downwards from top to bottom. You should see that the thermostat/device has been added. Refresh the screen several times as needed.
  6. Pairing is now complete. Repeat steps 2 to 5 for each thermostat/device to be paired, then press the gateway button (B1) to exit pairing mode.

Reconnecting the network

  3. Wait until the indicator light (L1) turns green.
  4. Refresh the Devices screen in the app by swiping downwards from top to bottom.
  5. If the problem is still unresolved, go to the next step.
