Gateway Device Troubleshooting Tips

The Gateway Device is the "brain" of your Home Monitoring and Control Network. It uses your Internet connection to send instructions to your Home Monitoring and Control devices. It also sends information about your devices to your computer, compatible smartphone or FiOS TV.

Gateway Device Issue Solution

My Gateway Device is not responding or will not work

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you receive the "Gateway Device is Not Responding"  message on the Home Monitoring and Control Web site on My Verizon?

 

Click Troubleshoot and follow the on-screen troubleshooting tips:

  • Verify that your Gateway Device is plugged into a power outlet and that its power light is solid green. If the green power light is not on, verify that the Gateway Device is working by un-plugging the Gateway Device from the power outlet and plug into another power outlet.

     

  • Make sure your Internet Router is working and you have an active Internet connection. If your Internet connection is down, your Gateway Device will not activate and connect to other devices.
     

  • Make sure your Ethernet cable is connected from the Gateway Device’s LAN port to your Internet Router’s LAN port (and not the WAN port).
     
  • Make sure your Gateway Device isn't too far away from your devices. The range is approximately 30 feet (or greater) and outdoor range is 200 feet (depending on envrionmental conditions).

Make sure you have entered the correct credential key from your Internet Router.


Make sure your Gateway Device is within range of your Internet by placing it within 200 feet (approximately).

Unplug the Gateway Device from the power outlet and make sure all lights are off.


Press the z-Wave and WPS buttons simultaneously and plug the Gateway Device in the power outlet.

 

Continue to hold  z-Wave and WPS buttons for 5 seconds and then let go of the buttons.

 

Wait for the Power light to display a solid green light again.
