Setting up your Cascade-500W Gateway

This article describes how to install your Cascade-500W gateway to work with the Presto or Swift kit and IoT Central.

1. Physical Installation

There are two ways to install and connect your Cascade-500W gateway:

LTE Mode: using the included power supply and the built-in LTE service. Simply attach the LTE antennas, power on the gateway, and wait a few minutes for the LED to turn green. Note: The Presto kit includes a SIM card and 90 days LTE service, after which you can continue to use the gateway with Ethernet.

Ethernet Mode: using Power-over-Ethernet to both power and connect the gateway to the Internet. Simply connect the gateway to a live 802.3AF PoE connection and wait a few minutes for the LED to turn green.

The Cascade-500W includes a mounting kit that can be used to install the device on a wall or ceiling. Refer to this article for advanced mounting options.

When you ordered your Presto kit, you received an email confirmation with a link to the Presto Setup Wizard. This wizard will securely associate your Cascade-500W to your IoT Central account and application. Follow those steps to start build out your application, and once completed return here for tips on how to verify the setup and begin adding sensors.

Note: If you cannot locate your email confirmation please contact for assistance.

3. Verify the Cascade-500W is Online and Reporting to IoT Central

After completing the Presto Setup Wizard, you can now see the Cascade-500W in your IoT Central Application. From the left menu, click "Devices", then "C500W".  This will bring up a list of devices:

Click on the C-500W in the device list and it should show your newly added gateway with data populating the charts:

If you the device did not appear in the list or the charts do not show any active data, see our troubleshooting guide here.

Once you have verified your Cascade-500W gateway is online in IoT Central, you are ready to add sensors and setup advanced features.
