Smart Gateway (ADC-SG130) - Installation Guide

The Smart Gateway (ADC-SG130) provides a dedicated Wi-Fi network for Wi-Fi video cameras. Featuring WPS, you no longer need to update cameras with complicated router passwords. Simply add to an account, plug into any wall outlet, connect to the existing router, and pair with a Wi-Fi camera for instant, secure Wi-Fi connectivity. 


Pre-installation checklist

  • ADC-SG130 Smart Gateway (included)
  • Ethernet cable (included)
  • 12 VDC power adapter (included)
  • Router with broadband (Cable, DSL, or Fiber Optic) Internet connection and an open Ethernet port
  • A computer, tablet, or smartphone with an Internet connection
  • Partner MobileTech app or the Login and Password for the account to which you will add the Smart Gateway

For a detailed list of this video device's features, see Smart Gateway (ADC-SG130) - Data Sheet.





  1. Use an Ethernet cable to connect the Smart Gateway to an open Ethernet (RJ-45) port on the existing router.
  2. Connect the Smart Gateway’s DC power adapter and plug it into a non-switched outlet.

For optimal Wi-Fi performance, place the Smart Gateway on top of a table or in another location free from physical obstructions. The Smart Gateway's range matches or exceeds most typical home routers.

Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) mode
  • WPS mode is the preferred way to add an Wi-Fi camera to the Smart Gateway’s Wi-Fi network.
  • Be sure to add the Smart Gateway to an account before using WPS mode to add video cameras to the Wi-Fi network.
  • To enter WPS mode, use either the Trigger WPS feature in the Partner MobileTech app app or press SG130 WPS Button.png and hold the  button for approximately 1 to 3 seconds. The Wi-Fi LED will slowly flash to indicate that the device is in WPS mode. For more information about using WPS to connect video devices, see Connect a video device to an ADC-SG130 using Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS).
  • Connect no more than four Wi-Fi cameras to the Smart Gateway at a time for optimal performance.

If WPS is not an option, access point (AP) mode is possible using the Smart Gateway's Wi-Fi credentials. For more information about finding its Wi-Fi credentials, see View the ADC-SG130's Wi-Fi password.

If you are still having issues using the Smart Gateway, please try the following troubleshooting options:

Check your router’s connection to the Internet

If you cannot access the Internet using your router, please contact your Internet Service Provider to restore Internet access. Try adding the device again.

Perform a communication test

Press the [R] button (pinhole) for 1 to 3 seconds (use a paper clip or tool if necessary). The Communication LED will quickly flash five times to indicate that the test was sent. Please wait two minutes before trying to use the device again.
