Getting started with SORACOM Air for Sigfox

Introduction

In this document, we will visualize the data sent from the Sigfox device using SORACOM Harvest.

In the above steps, we will explain the basic setting and communication check procedure for communication. Further developed usage will be introduced in “Applications” later in this document.

The premise of this guide is as follows.

Step 1: Set up the Sigfox device

Check and set the Sigfox device. The Sigfox device will be registered in your account when you confirm receipt on the “Order” screen of the user console. First of all, please follow the steps below to make sure that the Sigfox device owned by you is displayed on the user console.

Open “Sigfox Device Management” from the menu in the upper left corner of the user console.

Step 1-1: Create a Sigfox group

After confirming that the Sigfox device is associated with the account, create a Sigfox group to set up data transmission destination etc. The setting procedure is as follows.

Click “Sigfox Group” from the menu button at the upper left of the user console.

Step 1-2: Register the Sigfox device in the Sigfox group

Step 2: Confirm communication using SORACOM Harvest

Data collected by Sigfox devices can be sent using either Beam, Funnel, or Harvest services. In this example, we will send data using Harvest which is easy to set up and check if the device is communicating. For details on how to send data using other services, see the application section of this document.

For the setting of SORACOM Harvest of each Sigfox device, refer to the document of each device below.
