Quick Start – Ruuvi Gateway

Follow this easy guide to set up your remote monitoring system in no time.

1. Connect Ruuvi Gateway to the Internet


Wired Ethernet connection offers the most reliable Internet connectivity. We suggest using it whenever available. To use an Ethernet connection, just connect your Ruuvi Gateway to your Internet router with an Ethernet cable and power up the Gateway using a power supply. That’s it! Now you can proceed to step 2.


If you prefer to use a Wi-Fi connection instead, first connect a power source to the Gateway and a new connectable Wi-Fi hotspot will appear. Connect to the hotspot with your Wi-Fi enabled mobile or desktop device:

Wi-Fi hotspot: Configure Ruuvi Gateway

After connecting to the Wi-Fi hotspot, your device may ask you to sign in to the network. Next, a new browser window with the correct configuration page will open automatically. But if not, open your web browser and type and press enter. Follow the onscreen instructions in order to connect to the Internet using Wi-Fi.

2. Claim your sensors on the Ruuvi Station mobile app

Ruuvi Gateway is now functional and it’s continuously routing nearby sensors’ data securely to the Ruuvi Cloud. Only you can access the data of the sensors owned by you. Each sensor can have only one owner.

Now, let‘s tell the cloud which sensors are owned by you.

  1. Sign in on the mobile application, if you haven’t signed in yet.
  2. Add your sensor on the app, if you already haven’t added it.
  3. Go to sensor’s settings page and tap “Owner”. Claim the ownership.

Note! If you don’t claim ownerships of your sensors, you cannot access the data your Ruuvi Gateway is sending to the cloud. To keep your sensors safe, make sure you always claim all your sensors. Sensors that don’t have owners can be claimed by someone else.

Web interface

Once your ownership has been set up, you can access data of the sensors stored in the cloud. In addition to the mobile app, you can access your sensors via web interface on

Use the same email address in mobile app and web app. You will receive a one time login code to your inbox. Your login session will stay valid until you log out or clear the cache on your web browser.

Sharing your sensors

Now you can share your sensors with your friends and family. Go to the sensor settings view on the mobile app to share the sensor. Your friend will get an email notification and will be able to see your sensor on his/her Ruuvi Station.
