  • signal fire gateway stick

    Gateway Stick

    The Gateway Stick is a rugged and integrated device. It combines a 500mW radio with a high-gain antenna and electronics in a single, easily mounted package. It combats a common problem with radio frequency networks. These networks monitor and also control remote devices over tens or hundreds of square miles. Gateways traditionally have different location requirements for their electronics module and antenna. This also makes it necessary to place them separately.

    Gateway Stick is a revolutionary solution that combines them into one easy-to-install component. Its unique design integrates high-gain, omni-directional antenna and gateway electronics in one place. It is also designed with tough materials made to withstand rugged, outdoor environments.
