Device Setup

Next, you'll need a LoRaWAN device to send data to the single-channel gateway. 

Don't have a LoRaWAN device?

We have a few options for getting one up and running - with support for CircuitPython and Arduino.

Building a CircuitPython LoRaWAN Device

If you'd like to use CircuitPython to send data to the gateway, we have two guides which use CircuitPython and the CircuitPython_TinyLoRa library.

This guide sets up weather-logging LoRaWAN device with an Adafruit Feather.

 

It works with any of the Feather Family boards which run CircuitPython and a RFM9x breakout, Feather M0 LoRa or a Radio FeatherWing. 

Building an Arduino CircuitPython Device

This guide uses an Adafruit Feather M0 LoRa and a DHT22 temperature sensor to capture and send data to The Things Network using either the MCCI LoRaWAN LMIC Library or the Adafruit TinyLora Library.

Now that we have a LoRaWAN Device, let's use it to send data to to our gateway.
