From the farthest edge into the cloud: A powered and connected mcGate220 creates the Long Range mcAir network to pull data from 1000s of mcThings sensor devices and uses an Ethernet or Wi-Fi connection to transmit that information from areas without wired network connections.


The mc Gateway is a wireless bridge between the internet and mcThings devices so they can communicate with the cloud. Providing up to 1000m (3,300 ft) range in optimal conditions using Long Range mcAir™, the mcGate220 connects 1000+ mcThings devices while giving you the ability to access them via the internet.

Outfitted with an ethernet or wireless connection, this Gateway can relay data from remote locations without a conventional wired network solution.
