Connect LoRa Network Server¶
Connect the LoRa Network server by sending the lora packets to https://iotministart.apps.exosite.io/c2c/callback
Step-by-Step instructions for utilizing TheThingsNetwork and MachineQ are below.
Access TheThingsNetwork at https://console.thethingsnetwork.org/
If your LoRa Gateway is not connected to TheThingsNetwork, documentation can be found here: https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/docs/gateways/
The Things Indoor Gateway is an affordable LoRa gateway good for proof of concept applications.
Adding ExoSense Integration¶
For the first IoT Mini Start kit, add an application in TheThingsNetwork console.
Select "add application"
For this example, the Application ID will be "iot_mini_start_kit"
This LoRa device is in the U.S, so "ttn-handler-us-west" is selected for the Handler Registration.
Select "Integrations" and "add integration" in the application.
Select "HTTP Integration"
Input the URL "https://iotministart.apps.exosite.io/c2c/callback" and select a unique Process ID.
Before adding a device, ensure the Application EUI provided by TE is included in the TTN application
Navigate to the Devices tab after the Application EUI is added
Select "register device"
Enter the Device EUI, App Key, and App EUI provided with your IoT Mini Start Kit. Note, select the pencil icon to input an App Key manually.
Skip to "Adding Device to ExoSense"
Add Exosite as an integration¶
Select the "Integrations" tab
Add an Output Profile, in this example we will name ours "Exosite HTTPS"
Add a Webhook destination
For the URL, enter "https://iotministart.apps.exosite.io/c2c/callback" and add the destination.
Add a new device with the DEVEUI, APPLICATION KEY, and APPLICATION EUI provided with your IoT Mini Start Kit.
Use the newly created output profile and "Over the air activation"
Once the device is sending data, you can claim it in ExoSense
Adding Device to ExoSense¶
Adding "IoT Mini Start" Service to ExoSense¶
Adding the service to ExoSense is only required when adding the first IoT Mini Start Kit to your application.
