Frequently Asked Question

Whats the difference between D2D and Infrastructure?

In D2D (Device-to-device) or Hotspot mode the GS-911 serves as a Wifi Access point for other devices to connect to. In Infrastructure mode the GS-911 device connects to an existing Wifi Access Point.

The GS911 wifi device without the PC application, requires an internet connection to execute service functions from an internet cloud server. When it is set up for D2D functioning, the device itself is set up as the access point and cannot have an internet connection at the same time. If you want to perform service functions from the cloud, you have to configure the unit for Infrastructure mode so that it can connect to the internet via a Wifi access router or via a smartphone set up as an internet hotspot.

For more information on setting up Infrastructure mode have a look at the instructional videos.

The button can be used to toggle the device between D2D and a configured Infrastructure access point.

Alternatively, if you do not want to be reliant on an internet connection, you can use the standalone PC application available from our download page. The PC application will enable you to perform service functions without having to have an internet connection.
