UP LoRa Node
Hi. I'm sorry if this is in the wrong group. Could an admin move it if necessary?
I'm writing to ask about the UP LoRa Node. It's not clear to me exactly what it does or how it works. What I'm looking for is a device which is programmed and ready to transmit LoRa signals to the local gateway. I can't tell whether the UP LoRa node does this. Is it a ready-to-go product or a development platform for which I need to write low level firmware? There is mention of ready-to-go firmware but I can't find any description of what that firmware does. The user manual goes into great detail on how to set the keys but says nothing about how to make a transmission (step 5 is "connect to gateway" and there is no step 6!). It also talks about Grove Cables and USB to RS232 converters - are these included in the kit or do they need to be purchased separately? Are they necessary for learners or will it work out of the box?
Could someone give me a basic summary of this device please?
Many thanks and best wishes.
The UP LoRa Node is a pre-programmed device that transmit data to a LoRa Gateway.
You can find all the technical information about the device here: https://github.com/AAEONAEU-SW/AAEON-LoRa-End-Node
The firmware is open source so you can eventually modify, adding other sensors, etc. and you can find the source code here: https://github.com/AAEONAEU-SW/AAEON-LoRa-End-Node-FW
The device can be powered by batteries or microUSB 5V PSU, which you would need to buy separately
Cables are not included, it is just the header type included onboard.
Regarding how to pair the device with your gateway, it depends on the Gateway software you are using.
We provide the necessary documentation on github and include keys/ids for you to use.
Also consider that you would need to decode the data on your gateway or Network server, in that case please refer to the documents available here about the payload: https://github.com/AAEONAEU-SW/AAEON-LoRa-End-Node/tree/master/documents_and_guides
