The Mobile Access Portal (MAP) Gateway is a pocket-sized web server that provides a wireless mobile user interface to Smart Equipment and Johnson Controls® branded system controllers and thermostats. Small, lightweight, and easy to use, the MAP Gateway joins the rapidly expanding list of Johnson Controls products that leverage the power of mobility and smart devices to improve daily operations. You can use the MAP Gateway as a portable device (carried from site to site, as needed by field personnel) or it may be permanently mounted on-site.

This document describes day-to-day use and features of the MAP Gateway, including where to find settings and how to navigate the screens, but does not address equipment controller details. For more information on individual controller and application settings, refer to the associated technical literature.

You can use the MAP Gateway to communicate with field controllers of several different systems, including Metasys®, Facility Explorer® , and BCPro™ . The MAP Gateway can also talk to Smart Equipment rooftop units (RTUs) with Simplicity SMART Equipment (SSE) control boards. The MAP Gateway supports Johnson Controls branded BACnet MS/TP and BACnet IP field controllers, including FEC, FAC, VMA, PCA, PCG, PCV, CGx, and CVx Series devices. The MAP Gateway supports third-party equipment that meet the ASHRAE standard 135-2012. It also supports the TEC3000 Series Thermostats.


  • SSE control boards are also known as Unitary Control Boards (UCBs) in some instances.
