How to import SSID passwords in a .JSON file
When connecting a Gateway to Insight Webportal, you may not want to include your network credentials in the configuration file. In that case, you can provide the individual network's credentials in an .JSON template and upload them directly to your Gateway by following these steps:
Step 1: Download the .JSON file template
- Open the following link in another tab: secrets.json.
The secrets.json file opens in your browser.
- At the top of the page, click Save and select the target location on your desktop.
- Open secrets.json in your desired text editor (E.g. Notepad).
- Under Reference, type in your router's/network's SSID (Network).
Under Password, type in your router's/network's password.
Note: The credentials need to be entered separately for every network. If you need to enter more than 3 networks, follow the structure of the secrets.json file.
Save the changes.
Step 2: Apply the file
- Connect the Gateway's USB cable to your desktop.
The Gateway boots up in about 1 minute. The USB LED glows green constantly.
- Scan the QR code on the Gateway with your scanner.
The scanner connects to the Gateway and the Scanner LED glows green.
- Scan the QR code below to enable the Gateway as a Mass Storage Device.
The Gateway displays as a Mass Storage Device on your desktop.
- Upload the secrets.json file to the Gateway Mass Storage Device (together with the provisioning file.)
- Eject the Gateway Mass Storage Device.
The upload takes a few seconds. All three LEDs flash green when done.
The Gateway automatically connects to Wi-Fi and Insight Webportal and Cloud LED glows green.
