Cloud Router™ Guide

If you haven't setup your first, continue to Setting up your first site otherwise here are some Additional features Cloud Router™ provides:

Setting up your first site

If you haven't already, register for a Cloud Router™ Account. Once registered Login and navigate to My Account and click on Upgrade.

Fill in your personal bank details and click Upgrade once you are done.

Your subscription should now show Cloud Router™ Pro. Please note that you must upgrade your account, so that you can proceed to setting up your own sites.

Within Settings or the Overview page create a site.

The name field is the title of the site that you will see in the title of email notifications and throughout your account. You are able to select your TimeZone. The Code field is automatically generating a human readable URL that you can bookmark. For example the web url for the above site would be: https://cloudrouter.pakton.net/site/rkz41Npzl_Brisbane_Site/dashboard

In the settings of the newly created 'Brisbane Site' site click the '+' icon to add your first device. This will be a 320 GMS gateway.

The address field will contain the serial number of the gateway then a forward slash, and then the serial number once again. This is a unique requirement for gateway devices and in the above example the serial number of the gateway is 654321.

Next we'll add a Z14, which we will name Z14, the address here takes the serial number of the gateway that was just added, then a forward slash, and finally the units Keypad bus group ID. Note you have to change the device type to be a Z14

Within the Settings or Dashboard you can edit the original gateway to only show some of its inputs or outputs. You can even rename the inputs or outputs to be more user friendly such as 'Flood Lights'.

At this point you should be able to control and monitor your site.

You will still have access to all the features you subscribed to until 1 month after your subscription date. The date that you will revert to a free account will show in the subscription section.

What is Gravatar?

Gravatar stands for Globally Recognized Avatars and it links your email account to a profile picture of your choosing. Many different sites use Gravatar to personalize user accounts with something other than their name or email address. We use it to personalize the site logs so you can quickly see who disarmed the site! For more information and to create your gravatar account please visit http://en.gravatar.com/.

No, by Facebook's design we only have access to your public profile information. you can see exactly what information we have access to under the heading 'fields' here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/messenger-platform/user-profile. We currently use none of these fields and simply store a unique Facebook identifier so that we can send you notifications. If you opt out of this feature at any time, your unique Facebook identifier is wiped from our database and we cannot contact you until you opt into it again.

Facebook hasn't got access to any of the information that we store in our system. For the most up to date information regarding your privacy please review our privacy policy here: https://cloudrouter.pakton.net/privacy.

How much SMS credit do I get per month?

Cloud Router™ Pro comes with 50 SMS's per month included as standard. If you wish to increase this quota you can add SMS packs to your monthly subscription which adds 50 SMS's per month. Site Packs allow you to create an additional Site on your account and add 50 SMS's per month to your account as well.
