Connecting your SenseCAP sensor to The Things Network

If you are interested in measuring IoT telemetry using an ultra low power wide area sensor network solution, the Seeed SenseCAP is an viable choice.

Seeed offers a number of sensors for agriculture and industrial environments, connected to a LoRa network.

I got my hand on this TH sensor, able to read air temperature and air humidity, sending it to the nearest LoRa gateway:

Seeed provides a portal for thier sensors called SenseCAP Software. But other LoRa platforms are supported too.

In this blog, I show you how to connect this sensor to The Things Network LoRa backend.

The Things Network bridge revisited

A few month ago, I wrote about how to collect telemetry from The Things Network back-end and send them to an Azure IoT Hub.

The code was simple and it only provided telemetry for one device. But the technology used, was working.

Last month, I was involved in creating a workshop for the TechDays 2016 in Amsterdam. The two-hour workshop gives a good impression how to build an IoT Backend in Azure. During this workshop, we used a NodeJs bridge to pass the telemetry to Azure.

This bridge is available at using the NPM package installer: npm install –save ttn-azure-iothub@preview

I got inspired by this bridge and now I have rebuilt my bridge to handle multiple devices and more!
