First, register your CloudGate on your CloudGate Universe account, here: www.cloudgateuniverse.com

Once logged in on CloudGate Universe, create a new group:

Now add new CloudGate devices to this group.


When the device(s) are added to the new group, set the default application to "SafeDistance". You can do this by clicking on the 'Manage software'  button in your newly created group. Always use the latest available version.

Also make sure to use the latest CloudGate Firmware. At the time of writing this is version 2.93.2.

Once the group settings are set, you can boot up the CloudGate(s). Make sure they have a WAN connection, via cellular network or via Ethernet cable.


Each CloudGate will perform a check-in to the CloudGate Universe Provisioning server after each reboot, or after the check-in timer expires. The device will then download the configured software from CloudGate Universe automatically.


Once the SafeDistance application is installed, the CloudGate will create a secured end-to-end connection to the SafeDistance Network Server using asymmetric key authentication over TLS 1.2. CA signed certificates are used to verify device ownership.
