From here onwards, you can follow the steps to make sure this tag is assigned to the right user and ready for use.

Does the KS System have firewall port setting requirement?

The IQ only establishes outgoing connections. In order for the IQ to work correctly, it needs to be able to establish outgoing connections on all ports. If this is not in line with your default IT policy, please contact SALTO Systems Support with your concerns and to receive further guidance.

When connecting the IQ 2.0 through Ethernet or Wi-Fi local network settings can interfere with the IQ operation. Updates and normal operation requires different settings. Ideally, the IQ should be on a network where all outbound traffic for the IQ is accepted. This is the only way to ensure an update will work as it should and will ensure no issues with normal operation.

For updating, any port could be used so the network must allow all outgoing traffic.

For normal operation, the IQ uses IP addresses and port 40000 and 40001, these should be whitelisted. Note that the IQ makes a connection to these ports on the SALTO KS backend system, but the connection is done from a random port. Thus, the IQ must be allowed to connect to external port 40000 or 40001 for this to work.

If it's not accepted the IQ must have access, due to security reasons, an M2M connection is an option. If the IQ cannot connect, check the following:

Network requirements - DHCP server that provides the IQ with an IP address For Wi-Fi - Preferably WPA or WPA2 encryption, otherwise an open network. 2.4ghz only. For Ethernet - No network authentication (no 802.1X)

The IQ connects to a server on TCP ports 40000 and 40001. The IQ updates by downloading a file from our FTPS server. It is not possible to give out fixed IP addresses of the SALTO KS backend to which the IQs connect. The SALTO KS backend is dynamically hosted and scales up/down based on a number of requests and connected IQs. You can compare this to for example going to or any other popular website. When connecting, you're not sure to which server you're forwarded. However, what some of our customers do, is implement whitelisting on IQ Mac addresses. This means they only allow IQ Mac addresses that are whitelisted to connect to the outside world. If MAB is used in the network (MAC Authentication Bypass), it would be necessary to whitelist MAC addresses of the IQs (which do not support 802.1X) in the network authentication backend, allowing the IQs to connect without further authentication.

We would advise the customer to look into this option. There is no way to whitelist IPs of our backend services.
