• Stable internet connection, preferably via Ethernet
  • Smappee Connects need at least firmware 2.26 (Note: A Smappee WiFi Connect is not compatible)
  • Smappee Genius that will act as Multigateway Parent (also connected to the Internet)
  • You need a Partner account to set it up


  • As soon as internet drops, the genius cannot keep the data in memory
  • Power Quality XL to see harmonics/Min-Max is not supported in Multigateway mode
  • The Genius is not able to do measurements by itself and cannot control output/input modules. However, it can communicate with Smappee Switch and Smappee Gas&Water devices.

How to set up

  1. Make a normal installation in a new Location of the Genius ensuring the Genius is green breathing indicating the installation is successful. During the installation procedure in the app, do not add any loads.
  2. If needed, empty the entire load configuration as a Genius in multi-gateway setup will not be able to measure loads by itself. If there are still loads in the configuration then the upgrade to a multi-gateway Genius will not be possible.
  3. Upgrading the Genius to the correct firmware can be done in the 'location configuration' card that you can find in the dashboard. There you can click on the 'Promote to multi-gateway parent' button. When the upgrade is complete you will see the following screen:
  4. Install all Connect devices which will become childs. 
    These all get a separate location.
  5. You can power the Genius by plugging in an RJ10 cable in the second B bus of a connect or you can use any 12V or 5V power supply. Just make sure the polarity of the provided power is correct as shown below in the image.
  6. Finally, you should link the Genius as Parent for all the Child locations. This has to be done in our Dashboard using the Location configuration card. In the example below we link the location "Main distribution panel" (Connect) to the parent location  "Home" (Genius).mceclip0.png




Remark: The NILM functionality of a Smappee is no longer available when the genius is upgraded to a multi-gateway parent
