Sigfox Backend : Registering your first Sigfox Device

Registering your first Sigfox Device

Pre-requisites:
  • Device Type Setup
  • Sigfox Id and PAC of the device
    Sample Only*


    In case your Sigfox Id and PAC does not work, you may contact your supplier or send us an email at support@thinxtra.com so we can assist you.

 

Here are the steps on how to register your first Sigfox Device:

  1. Login to backend.sigfox.com
  2. Once logged in, go to Device Tab.

  3. On the upper right, click New.

  4. Select a Group / Sub-group.

  5. After selecting a group you will be redirected to this screen and next fill in the following details:


    • ID/PAC couple.
    • Name
    • Select device type
    • Enter your product certificate if your device is Sigfox Ready. If not, click the "Where can I find the end product certificate?" then, tick the "Register as a prototype" option to proceed.
    • The device default setting is Activable. If this option is disabled, all messages will be dropped and the device cannot consume any token. This option could be updated by editing the device.

  6. Once you have filled it up, click OK.

 

Now you have created your first device!

As you may notice, upon registering the Token State still has this symbol ? which means the device needs to send its first message to activate the token and once it has been received by the Sigfox Network then you will see the check symbol which means the token has been successfully activated and acknowledged by the Sigfox Backend.

Here is how it looks like:

 

Now that you have successfully connected your Sigfox device to the network, let's work on how to connect your application using Sigfox Callbacks.
