The Founten Wireless Gateway links the property's wireless network to the Internet. The Gateway's intelligent wireless technology provides a secure and reliable connection. It is self-configuring and automatically builds a wireless network to all Founten products installed at the property. A single Gateway can support up to 2,000 thermostats. The Gateway range is up to 300 feet and automatically instructs the nearest thermostats to forward messages to thermostats which are located further away. This means reliable wireless communications can be provided for thousands of feet without installing additional equipment.
