(G3) Connect G300 To Your Home Network

Last Updated: Sep 26, 2012 09:18AM PDT

The G300 can either act as your home's main Wi-Fi router, or if you already have a working Wi-Fi setup, you can simply add your G300 to your existing Wi-Fi router.  In either case, the G300's control and monitoring capabilities remain the same. 


Choose one of the steps below:
 

If You Want To Use The G300 As Your Main Wi-Fi Router:

First, use the supplied Ethernet cable to connect the Ethernet (WAN) port on the far left of your G300's rear panel to an available Ethernet port in the broadband modem/gateway that your ISP service (cable, satellite, fiber optic, etc.) has provided for you as shown.  Connect the G300 power adapter (the one marked "Sunny') into the 12V power receptacle, and then plug "Sunny" into an AC electrical outlet.

In about 60 seconds, 3 lighted LED indicators for Power, WAN and Wi-Fi will be lit up solidly, and not blinking. Your G300 is now connected to act as your main Wi-Fi router.

On your PC screen, you will find a secure, encrypted Wi-Fi network with your unit's "name" followed by its serial number, which is also printed on the bottom of your unit.  To "join" this network, you'll need to enter the secure password that's printed on the bottom of your G300's case.
 


If You Want To Simply Add The G300 To A Wi-Fi Router You Already Own:

If you already have a working Wi-Fi router, use this connection to simply add the G300's control capabilities to your existing Wi-Fi system.  Use the supplied Ethernet cable to connect G300 to one of your existing Wi-Fi router's connection ports.  Connect the G300 power adapter (the one marked "Sunny') into the 12V power receptacle, and then plug "Sunny" into an AC electrical outlet.




G300 Rear Panel

In about 60 seconds, lighted LED indicators for Power, WAN and Z-Wave will be lit and not blinking. Your G300 is now properly connected to your Wi-Fi router and ready for next configuration steps.

If you cannot get these indicators to light up solid or need to change advanced settings, like setting a static IP, see the troubleshooting section at the end of this user guide

Now that you've successfully connected your G300 to your home network, you're ready to set up an account that gives you secure access to your G300 system.  But first, we'd like to show you an installation option that you may want to know about before you continue:

AN OPTIONAL BUT USEFUL SETUP STEP:

Your G300 unit wirelessly talks to other controllable devices throughout your home.  In order to do this, it has to first recognize these other devices in an initial process called "pairing." This is an easy step -- you bring the device you want to pair within 3 feet of the G300, push a button on each the G300 and the device you want to pair and the pairing of the new device is complete.

Sometimes however, there may be controllable devices in your home that are not easily moved within pairing distance of your G300, for example, a light switch that is already installed in a wall in another room, or a door lock.
 
To allow pairing for these situations, the G300 includes a battery pack that lets you bring the G300 next to these devices instead of the other way around.  Depending on your needs, this step is optional, but if you do have pre-installed or otherwise non-movable controllable devices that you want to pair and control with the G300, here's how to do it via battery:


 

The battery pack comes with its own supplied AC adapter -- you'll recognize it by its red and green LED lights.  Plug this adapter into the battery's DC port and then into an electrical outlet.  Then turn on the battery and the green light would be on, indicating that it started charging. Full charging for this optional battery operation will take approximately eight hours, when the green light goes off.
 
The battery also comes with a cable to connect to the G300 for when you need to physically move G300 to the non-movable devices you want to pair with. Simply disconnect the G300's AC power cable (the one that goes into the wall) and connect the battery to that port instead.  You're now ready to walk the G300 anywhere around your home to pair controllable devices.
