The IQnext gateway will send occupancy data to the cloud platform every 60 seconds. The gateway
only uses outbound HTTPS connections for this purpose. There will be no inbound connections/data
going to the IQnext gateway.

PORT: 443

The gateway needs to be configured with the IP address information.

(MAC addresses will be provided by the Synconext team).
