Configuration Gateway

1. Configuration Web Server

The Gateway Climkit has an internal web server used to check the configuration and connection of equipment.

But everything is configured on the main portal. The Gateway simply imports its configuration from the portal.

Connect to the web server with the local URL available on the portal under Configuration > Gateway > Local Gateway Access. Or use its local IP address with port 8080 (ex.

The password is available under Configuration > Gateway > Configuration Server Password.

The Gateway regularly checks for configuration changes but it is possible to immediately import the new configuration by clicking on the UPDATE CONFIGURATION button.

Setup mode

Enable configuration mode under Configuration > C onfig mode.

When enabled, CONFIG MODE stops all services and allows you to manually interact with devices, such as reading meters or closing relays.

Don't forget to turn it off when you're done.

Once disabled, all services are restarted and the Gateway should function normally.


The Gateway can run the following services simultaneously depending on the primary configuration:

  • Meter reading: to regularly read meters and export their data to the Climkit Cloud.
  • Charging station: used to interact with EV terminals (charging management and authentication).
  • Sensor reading: used to read sensors and export their data to the Climkit Cloud.
  • Optimization: algorithm to optimize self-consumption of solar electricity.
  • Card readers: to interact with RFID readers and open or close relays.

You can view their logs and status (✅ /❌) under their respective tab on the configuration web server.

Restart all services by turning Config mode on and off .

Counters tab

The Counters tab with CONFIG MODE enabled is used to manually interact with Modbus and Mbus counters.

It can also be used to change the primary Modbus or Mbus address of a device.

It can also be used to manually read a Modbus register from a connected device.

2. Upload the configuration file

Upload the installation configuration file

  • Download the installation JSON configuration file from the Climkit portal under Configuration > Gateway.
  • Connect the Gateway to your local router with an Ethernet cable and plug the Gateway into its power supply.
  • Wait a few minutes, open an internet browser and go to the local configuration server at http://climkit.local:8080/ (or the local IP, e.g.

Log in with the default credentials:

USERNAME: "config"

PASSWORD: "climkit"

  • Go to Upload Config > Choose JSON configuration file and click UPLOAD.
  • Once the configuration is complete and successful, restart the gateway and wait 5 minutes.
  • You can now connect to the local configuration server with its IP address or its new local URL available at: Configuration --> Gateway --> Local Configuration Server.

USERNAME: "config"

PASSWORD: The installation's own "Config Server password"

You can also access the remote installation with the "Remote config server" link.

Note that the connection may take up to 5 minutes to be available.

3. Troubleshooting

When connected to an internet connection, the Gateway automatically communicates with Climkit servers.

Here's a quick guide on how to resolve most connection issues.

Internet connection

4G Router

Check with a computer that the router is connected to the Internet.

Check the RJ45 cables.

If there is no Internet, three explanations are possible:

  • Faulty router
  • Bad router Ethernet port
  • SIM card disabled (4G connection)

LAN local router

Check the connection between the router and the Gateway (Ethernet cables, switch, etc.).

Do not use Powerline (Ethernet over Powerline) devices.

RS485 or Mbus problems

If all the meters are not read:

  • Make sure the meters are addressed.
  • Check that the Modbus parameters are correctly set (address, parity, baud rate).
  • Check with a tester that there is no false contact on the bus between A, B and GND.
  • Check that all cables are securely connected and making contact. Sometimes if the wire is inserted incorrectly, it may be tight on the insulation and not make contact.
  • To isolate the problem, unplug the entire bus and connect the meters gradually and check that they read 1 by 1 by adding them little by little.
  • Ask if all meters are wired in series and not star.
  • Check that the RS485/USB adapter is not damaged. Check that the rights colors of the RS485/USB adapters are used (A=orange, B=yellow, GND=black).

If certain meters are not read:

  • Check that the circuit breaker is not broken
  • Check that one wire on the bus is not disconnected, disconnecting the rest.
  • Check the bus address of the meter(s).
