For Digi ConnectPort X2e Smart Energy gateway deployments, you will want to ensure that there is a networking infrastructure in place that will allow internet access between the Digi gateway and the Digi Device Cloud.
Before deploying the gateway hardware, you will want to write down the ConnectPort X2e gateway Serial Number (which is also the MAC address and device ID), EUI 64 address and installation code. These can be located on the sticker affixed underneath the unit.
Note: Only one Digi ConnectPort X2e router gateway can be added per coordinator/Smart Meter.
Connect the ConnectPort © X2e SE unit to your network router or ethernet HUB using the provided blue ethernet cable for Ethernet connectivity. This will require that a Ethernet port be available on your network router, modem or switch.
Plug in the power adapter to power on the unit.
Observe the network LED (LED closest to the power connector) on the Digi gateway unit until it turns solid green, indicating that the ConnectPort X2e gateway has successfully established a connection to the Digi Device Cloud.
Join with the Coordinator
Once the Digi Device Cloud connection has been established, the next step would be to configure the Digi router gateway to join your Smart Energy Coordinator or Smart Meter. The specific steps vary depending on what device is being used as the Smart Energy network coordinator. However, the joining process will involve input of the installation code and possibly the EUI 64 address in order for the coordinator to allow joining.
For Smart Meter Texas customers, joining is done using the Smart Meter Texas web portal. When logged into your Smart Meter Texas account select the HAN Devices menu to add a new HAN device. You will prompted to provide the following information:
