What are the first steps I need to take to work with my DevKit?
The DevKit edition is intended for development and testing - read more here: ask.simplehw.eu/devkit
Please note that the Sigfox Atlas WiFi subscription doesn't come with the DevKit connectivity - if you want to use WiFi localisation, please use the Google one provided by the IO Frog platform (use WiFi modes instead of WiFi Atlas).
This article is for everyone who purchased a DevKit edition device from us and now wants to know how to register it and work with it. Here's a simple step-by-step guide on DevKit activation:1. Go to buy.sigfox.com
2. Select Activate my DevKit
3. If you already have a Sigfox Id account (if you have credentials to login into the Sigfox backend with), you can skip this step if you log into your account on the top right corner. If you're new to Sigfox, please select the country you are based in from the menu and hit Next.
If you're from Portugal or Italy, you need to register the device under France!
4. Now it's time to input the device ID and the PAC you received (you can also find this in the QR code on the back of the device) and the purpose of the project. Once you do so, please check that you see our logo along with the availability confirmation message. Then, hit Next.
If you already have a Sigfox Id account and are logged in, you will have to choose where exactly you want to create the new DevKit device type in your Sigfox backend after this step.
5. If you have a Sigfox Id account and are logged in, the registration is now complete! If you have an account and you're not logged in, log in now. If you don't have an account yet, it's necessary to create it to manage your device. Just fill in your information and that's it!
6. DONE! Check your inbox for the confirmation email from Sigfox. If you're new to Sigfox, you will also receive your login credentials into the Sigfox backend.
Now that your device is registered, you can continue with creating an account/registering your new device on the IO Frog platform, where both uplink messages and downlink settings are already parsed - this will save you massive amounts of time if you're new to our devices as the firmware is quite complex.
