Internet Connection

The smart-me system and its hardware always requires a direct internet connection to the cloud. Locally, you must therefore set up a WLAN 2.4GHz with an internet connection. 5Ghz is not supported because of the low range.

Internet access can be solved as follows:

Failure levels

Mobile data providers (LTE)

The data subscriptions: Digital Republic - Mobile Internet for your devices

*details can be found in the technical data of the products.

Specifications as required:

The supported clients define how many devices can talk to the access point or router at the same time. The number must match your installation. There are cost-effective access points that meet the client count of 200+. The number can be found in the device data sheet, usually under "Max. Clients" or "Concurred Clients".

Possible hardware components


The router is the source that connects to the internet/provider and converts it to LAN (RJ-45) or WiFi 2.4 Ghz / 5 GHz.


Accesspoints convert a router signal transmitted via LAN (RJ-45) into a WiFi 2.4 GHz / 5 GHz.


Repeaters amplify an existing WiFi signal to extend the range. 

Mobile LTE router with 2.4GHz WLAN

Teltonika RUT240 (max. 50 Clients)

An external SIM card slot and signal strength LEDs allow for easy commissioning. The router's 4G module offers LTE Cat 4 speeds of up to 150 Mbps. The device can also be used as a DSL router or WLAN client and has a fallback function for automatic switching to LTE or WLAN if the DSL connection fails.
