Welcome to our community.
firmware of simplepack can be chosen from 7 parameters, accelerometers, location, vibration, door opening, turn-upside position etc. Once one been choose, it can't monitor others...like I choose vibration in platform, it will not show location or movement? May you let me know I get it correctly?
The modes tell how the device should behave and what parameters are configurable...It is similar to programming...
For location SimplePack doesn't include GPS nor Wifi sniffers and relies on Sigfox Atlas Geolocation service that process the signal strength from the device as processed by multiple basestations. The location works therefore all the time for all the messages with accuracy of around 1 km. See https://www.sigfox.com/en/sigfox-geolocation
Testing SimplePack firmware v4. Based on documentation, it is possible to disarm SP in Press Me mode. I loaded 0132070000ffffff for press me mode and later 1000000000000000 to disarm the device. All ACK messages confirmed in backend. SP is still sending callbacks after short/double pressing the button. Is it a feature "protecting" SP for possible long press to load a new downlink message and I should handle it in the code on server side? If yes, what is a "disarm" function in press mode designed for?
Arm disarm is relevant only in Press me mode...API is written in such a way that you can switch to Press me mode and at the same time provide other parameters.
Would be possible to build SimplePack that is disarmed if an authorised person is in specific range or using RFID chip? Specific cases: kids coming home or no GSM data to disarm SP via mobile phone etc.
In general you can disarm by using BLE or RFID. SimplePack doesn't support other RF technologies in order to keep it simple and cheap. You can disarm the device even after the alarm was sent...So if you know kids came home you just disarm it after getting the alarm and not before..One can use a Sigfox keyboard to disarm as well https://partners.sigfox.com/products/foxpadr
