（2）Secure LNS URI: wss://collector.senetco.io:6042, which need upload and import TLS certificate file to gateway.
(Download certification from: https://docs.senetco.io/dev/gw/BasicStation/ )
Save it, when Connection status will change to Connected also, the gateway will change to Active status on the Senet platform also.
