How to check : how many time device was pressed ?

arnaud huvelin 2 months ago in SimplePack • updated by SimpleHW support 2 months ago 2


Usecase :

  • pressme mode
  • everytime the user has an issue, he press the button
  • we use then the data to, determine how many times he had issues during his day, week, month, etc.

Concerns :

  • How can i be sure the message is sent when he press the button ?

Idea :

  • Device memory :
    • Can/does the device store how many times he was pressed ? If so, is it possible to send it every 6/12 hours ?
    • So, we can check if their is a gap between backend and reality :)

Is it possible ?

If you have other ideas, i'm listening :)

in Sigfox protocol a counter is increased by 1 for each message...So you can easily see in the backend the total number of presses...

Streaming data periodically from simplepack 2.0

Cesar 4 weeks ago in SimplePack • updated 2 weeks ago 11


I have bought a simplepack 2.0 a few weeks ago and I am trying to stream the data that it's recorded through the vibrations into the cloud (kinesis and DynamoDB) AWS. I was checking the documentation and I can't find the proper way to do this nor API available to get data in real time, I have only found that I can register the device in IOFrog and start receiving messages in that platform but I can't access the data my device is sending in an API way. I would like to receive the events directly from the devices through a service (JSON response from API). Is this possible with your device and if so, could you share with me the step-by-step guide, please?

Dear Cesar,

you are right it can be confusing. 

But in step Register a new device in IOFrog you clearly have an option to use your own connectivity...which you used to have....

IOFrog platform availableraw data from Sigfox
1 year Devkit connectivityyes (callbacks creations needed for set up)yes
IOFrog connectivityyes directlyno
Own commercial connectivity sold by Sigfox operatoryes (callbacks creations needed for set up)yes
Own commercial connectivity sold by Sigfox operator online through buy.sigfox.comyes (callbacks creations needed for set up)yes
Own 1 year free connectivity that can be provided at discretion by Sigfox operator for development and testing purposesyes (callbacks creations needed for set up)yes

Is it clearer now ?

The Sigfox model is that the local Sigfox operators (Aerea in your case) are responsible for both onboarding the partners and for selling the connectivity and for support.

See https://partners.sigfox.com/companies/sigfox-operator?or[categories][0]=sigfox-operator&q=&limit=48&page=0

We as HW manufacturers cannot sell any connectivity...Only Sigfox operators can...

With best regards

General improvement

Hi team,

many thanks for the great job you made, the checkfox is a real killer field test device.

From my side and as I'm starting to use it daily and many many of my clients are looking for buying one (or more ;) ) I think that some details have to be modified.

It looks that this device have been created for a SIGFOX Corp usage only, as a coverage evaluation tool indead. All sub-menus are made in a way of evaluating DA commitments.

It's very confusing for average clients when they arrive on these choices menu with many choices, especially this survey/final aspect.

What I propose is to have 2 modes when the device is turned ON, one for easy field test (for clients) and one expert mode for SIGFOX coverage evaluation.

Regarding periodical measurement, 1min is too long, some times it will be very usefull to launch more measurement, filling the rest time would be the perfect answer but at least 30s + GPS should be good enough.
Also when you're evaluating coverage on a typical BS it could be interesting to have every may be 10 TX a check on the backend of the result of this 10th measurement, my point is if the station is not reached anymore, no need to go further (personnal experience, true story ;) )

For information, there are some security breaches into your web platform, as for example I can reach detailed measurement from direct link without any login needed : https://checkfox.simplehw.eu/measurement-batch/d3c881675bffb6fd


Prosím o pomoc s nastavením druhého callbacku

Petr 3 months ago in SimplePack • updated by SimpleHW support 3 months ago 7

Dobrý den,

zakoupil jsem Simplepack v DevKit verzi a registroval ho na sigfox.com

Simplepack jsem přidal do svého účtu na platformě IOfrog a zvolil jako poskytovatele připojení třetí stranu.

Následně jsem podle návodu začal v backend.sigfox.com nastavovat callbacky, aby Simplepack mohl fungovat na platformě IOfrog.

U druhého callbacku jsem však narazil na problém, že nemám na výběr možnost SERVICE, GEOLOC jak je uvedeno v návodu (viz přiložený obrázek).

Prosím o informaci, jak postupovat.

Byl to bug na strane Sigfoxu. Zkuste prosim ted. Dekuji Pavel Sodomka

simplePack 3.0 Plus Lite measures ambient temperature on the MCU, which gives you uncalibrated temperature with 2° C precision.

The SimplePack 3.0 Plus versions with precision thermometer contain discrete calibrated thermometer with 0,5° C precision. Based on field measurements and real life usage and due to the extra small case size, the IP67 internal thermometer is sufficient for all kinds of cold chain monitoring. 

For room monitoring we are preparing IP44 SimpleTemp.

We don't have any current plans to use external probes for specific industrial use cases as those solutions are available from other Sigfox partners.

As the use cases for Reed contact and the requirements for size and form and price can differ, we don't provide any magnets. Magnets are readily available worldwide at various shapes and price levels. 

We are ready to consult implementations for any commercial projects.

Operate range is 15-50 AT, release range is 5-45 AT.

Reed sensor is located on the edge and to the right from the press button.


How does the magnetometer works?

Magnetometer detects the magnetic field of the Earth. Is is a kind of compass. Thanks to magnetometer we are able to detect rotation in the vertical axis. Door opening, not proper orientation of mobile traffic sign, gesture based data input etc..
