The Gateway is a great unit that enables complete access to your pool equipment from any computer (via website access) and smart phone app. As mentioned in another review a 6 wire straight through RJ12 cable is required for the unit to work, available from Astral Pool as a special order. This cable is different to "normal" RJ12 cables which are the crossover type. I cannot understand why the unit does not get supplied with this special cable in the box.
The pool shop were great to deal with and very helpful with installation instructions and directions, I will be using them again for sure!
I bought the product because someone at work has it and it works awesome for them. However it hasn't worked for me yet as the product doesn't tell you, that you need a straight through 6 wire RJ12 cable, only an RJ12 cable. Most places sell as standard a 4 wire cable and usually crossover however the labelling at JBHiFi or other places don't tell you what type the cable is. you have to manually look yourself. Strange that the manual doesn't tell you and no cable packaging tell you what you are getting. I have had to order this 'special cable' from 4Cabling and hope that it will work once I get it.
Wow! so easy to install and allows access to my phone, tablet and my desktop. Now I can "service " my pool anywhere! Service from the pool shop is also awaesome.
