Does BlueNote require a Server?

Simply put, No. BlueNote Communicator Lights was designed to be a server-less communication system. Server-less means installations are fast, and that BlueNote does not have a single point of failure.

However there are times when a server-less design is not as desirable. An example of this would be wireless networks that are designed for maximum security. Most Wi-Fi networks used by medical offices are protected from the main wired network to prevent unauthorized access. In this scenario one of the BlueNote clients on the wired network would be used to assist the BlueNote clients on the Wi-Fi network using a Gateway mode that is included with each BlueNote client.
