UG65 can be mounted to a wall or a pole. Before you start, make sure your antennas have been attached and all cables have been installed.


Do not power up the gateway until installation is complete.

Mounting position

UG65 gateway supports the same floor range detection in open office buildings. It is recommended to use one gateway for one floor with the following installation notes:

  • Install UG65 in the center of the connected sensors.
  • Avoid being obscured by large metal objects.
  • Away from high current areas and areas where current changes frequently.
  • Ensure sufficient space for transmitting signals by installation in open area.

Wall mounting

  1. Align the mounting bracket horizontally to the desired position on the wall, use a marker pen to mark four mounting holes on the wall, and then remove the mounting bracket from the wall.
  2. Drill four holes with a depth of 32 mm by using your drill with a 6 mm drill bit on the positions you marked previously on the wall.
  3. Insert four wall plugs into the holes respectively.
  4. Mount the mounting bracket horizontally to the wall by fixing the wall mounting screws into the wall plugs.
  5. Screw the bracket fixing screws to the back panel of device, then hang the device to the mounting bracket on the wall.

Pole mounting

Preparation: Mounting bracket, bracket fixing screws, hose clamp and other required tools.

  1. Loosen the hose clamp by turning the locking mechanism counter-clockwise.
  2. Straighten out the hose clamp and slide it through the rectangular rings in the mounting bracket, wrap the hose clamp around the pole.

3. Use a screwdriver to tighten the locking mechanism by turning it clockwise.
4. Screw the bracket fixing screws to the back panel of device, then hang the device to the mounting bracket on the pole.
