To enable gateway go to More tab, Network Setup and select Gateway. Tap on the gateway button to enable gateway on the device.

The device working as a gateway needs to have a WiFi or a mobile data connection as well as a Bluetooth connection enabled. The second device can now get a connection to the gateway device via the cloud as long as it has a WiFi connection or a mobile data connection.

The Casambi "Gateway" feature relies always on third party devices and connections. Because of this a continuous, flawless operation cannot be guaranteed by Casambi.


After enabling gateway please make sure that:

  • Casambi app is always open in the gateway device, at least in the background.
  • Gateway device has a reliable internet connection at all times.
  • Gateway device has a reliable Bluetooth connection to at least one Casambi unit in the network.
  • Disable all automatic updates for the gateway device.
  • Gateway device is always plugged in to a power source.
  • Disable all power save options from the device that might cause the Bluetooth or internet connection to shut down.
