What is a Virtual Gateway?


A virtual gateway is a virtual device that can be used to insert data manually or via a custom insertion program that send data through our API, or by using Excel files.

NOTE: As in a regular gateway, the devices that send data to the Platform through this gateway must be accepted and added to a location. Check out our visualise data article to learn how to do this.


How to add a Virtual Gateway to the Platform

To start receiving data in your Virtual Gateway you just have to follow the next steps:

1. Login to the EMS with your user and password.

2. Go to the Settings section:


3. On the left menu select Gateways and click on Register a new gateway:
