Function and necessity of Gateway is unclear.
The Wiser Gateway (aka Coordinator) is the hub of the connected home.   The Gateway can be thought of as a translator.   The Wiser Devices communicate via ZigBee radio protocol, which is more secure than WiFi.   The Gateway translates the ZigBee messages to Internet TCP/IP protocol.  Without the Gateway, no data from Wiser Devices  is accessible over the internet.   Most Wiser functions will not work without a Gateway.
