The GW301 Cellular Gateway has four LED lights across the bottom. These lights are used to indicate the health and status of the Gateway.

When a Gateway is successfully programmed to a property it will begin communicating with other devices programmed to the same property. The Gateway must connect to the Cloud at least once to save this programming.
If the Internet connection to the Cloud is lost the Gateway will continue to collect reads based on the last saved programming. Once the connection is restored, the collected reads will be then be updated and visible on the NextCentury Web Portal or Mobile App.
The third light from the left is the RF Activity Indicator. This light flashes as devices communicate with the Gateway.
