Spec Sheet

The CEN-GW1 is a universal wireless gateway that communicates with Crestron® SG (Sub GHz) wireless, infiNET EX® wireless, and ER (Extended Range RF) wireless devices. A single CEN-GW1 gateway creates a wireless network of Crestron remotes, keypads, lighting dimmers, motorized shades, thermostats, door locks, and other devices to communicate with a Crestron control system.

Universal Wireless Gateway
The universal wireless gateway features 2‑way wireless communication between the gateway and wireless devices. The CEN-GW1 can manage SG wireless, infiNET EX® wireless, and ER (Extended Range RF) devices simultaneously, eliminating the need for separate gateways.

Easy Setup
Dynamic discovery makes it easy to locate and acquire each wireless device.

Power over Ethernet for Simple Installation
Using PoE technology, a single cable run is used for both power and data for the CEN-GW1.

Power an entire network of Crestron PoE devices using a Crestron PoE switch (CEN‑SW‑POE‑5 or CEN‑SWPOE‑16) or a single device using a PoE Injector (PWE‑4803RU). All PoE injectors and switches are sold separately.

As an alternative to PoE, use a 24 VDC power pack (PW‑2407WU, sold separately) to power the CEN-GW1.

Integrator Friendly Enclosure
Mount the CEN-GW1 almost anywhere using the Integrator Friendly Enclosure (IFE). The IFE can be mounted to any flat surface, snapped onto a standard DIN rail, or stacked

  • Universal wireless gateway adds the SG (Sub GHz) wireless network to the proven performance of the infiNET EX mesh network and Extended Range ER wireless network
  • Supports Crestron battery-powered shades
  • Dynamic discovery for fast, easy setup
  • Wi‑Fi® friendly channel selection for trouble‑free operation
