Installation aliunid Gateway with Blinker Sensor

Use this configuration if you want to read your electricity data through a Gateway with Blinker Sensor and WIFI is available on site.

Product Overview: Gateway with Blinker Sensor



1. Go to your electricity meter and take the following with you:
- Your gateway with blinker sensor incl. accessories
- Your smartphone with the aliunid HOME app installed
- The name and password of your WLAN

2. Open the aliunid HOME app on your smartphone


3. Go to the menu (top left) and select the section "My electricity meters"


4. Click on "Add meter" and follow the step-by-step instructions


5. Select the configuration "Gateway with Blinker Sensor"


6. Scan the QR code from your Gateway with Blinker Sensor


7. Attach the supplied antenna to the body of your Gateway.


8. Now place your Gateway on top of your electricity meter or in a suitable place next to it (less than 30cm away).


9. Connect your Gateway to the power supply, if necessary with an extension cable.
It is important that you do not place the Gateway more than 30cm from your electricity meter, otherwise the sensor cable, which we will connect in a later step, will be too short.
As soon as the Gateway is supplied with power, the status LED in the body starts flashing.



10. Set Impulsrate
Select the Impulsrate of your electricity meter or type it in manually. This can be found on the housing of your electricity meter (unit imp/kWh).
If you cannot find your Impulsrate, press the green bubble with the question mark. Fred will then show you a list of the most common electricity meters and the corresponding pulse rate.


12. Now place the centering aid exactly in the middle of the flashing light on your electricity meter.
If you can't find your flashing light, press the green bubble with the question mark. Fred will then show you a list of the most common electricity meters and the corresponding flashing light.



13. Now you can stick the round, adhesive dot in the middle of the centering aid.


14. Then attach the sensor head to the adhesive dot so that the aliunid flower faces outward.


15. Connect the sensor to the Gateway by plugging the cable from the sensor head into the body.


16. Finally, you can attach the Gateway next to your electric meter with the adhesive strips.
Pay attention to the following:
- the QR-Code on the body should still be accessible
- the cover of the electricity meter should still be removable


17. Firmware Installation
Now the required firmware is installed on the Gateway via smartphone.
A Bluetooth connection is required to transfer the firmware from your smartphone to the Gateway. If you have not yet switched on Bluetooth on your smartphone, you will now be prompted to do so. (Attention: older Android models request your "location access", which is an unfavourable designation, but we cannot change anything about this, as this is specified by Android).
If your smartphone has neither mobile internet nor WLAN reception, it will not be able to download the firmware. In this case, you should go to a place where you have reception and return to your electricity meter after downloading so that the firmware can be transferred to your gateway.


18. Now enter the information about your WLAN
The name as well as the password must be spelled exactly right (pay attention to upper/lower case, hyphens etc.)


Your Gateway should now be successfully connected (you can see this on the one hand when your smartphone switches to the next screen, and on the other hand when the status LED in the housing lights up contantly).


After a few moments, you should see a new card with your just connected electricity meter under "My electricity meters".
The card shows the last measured electricity consumption value.


Click on the cogwheel symbol (bottom right within the card) to change the name or function of the electricity meter.

Return to the cockpit to observe your own power consumption measured in real-time.
