Connect your Episensor gateway and sensors to Wattics
Both industrial IoT (IIoT) gateways from Episensor (shown above) connect directly to the Wattics RESTful API. This makes it possible to connect any of the sensors in their product line to Wattics. Among the many advantages of using Episensor are:
- Wireless sensor network (ZigBee)
- Battery powered sensors (optional)
- Ease of installation
Episensor’s range of wireless sensors includes devices to monitor: electricity, pulse & analogue signals, temperature, humidity, among others. The Episensor devices supported by the Wattics platform are the following:
- Industrial IoT Gateway (NGR-30-5 & NGR-30-3)
- Wireless 3-Phase Electricity Monitor (ZEM-61)
- Wireless Temp & Humidity Sensor (TES-11 & HTS-10)
- Wireless Probe Temperature Sensor (TES-21 & TES-22)
- Wireless Digital Signal Sensor (ZPC & ZDI)
- Wireless Analogue Signal Sensor (ZIO & ZVO)
How to connect my Episensor gateway and sensors to Wattics?
Login to your Episensor Gateway:
Go to Settings > Data Export to set up the Data Export service:

Please make sure to fill out the Gateway ID field.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain your HTTP(S) credentials.
Go to Nodes to select and configure the node(s) you would like to export to Wattics.
Note: electricity meters are only supported as single-value (kWh only) meters.
Enter the Node settings from the Action menu:
Note: this is a good time to confirm the node’s status is ‘ok’.
Now, go to the settings for the specific sensor you are interested in:
Tick Export Enabled, then configure the Sensor Properties. Take note of all the details (meter type, Export ID, reporting interval, unit) as you will need them later when configuring your Wattics dashboard.
