To get your sensors communicating with LoRaWAN simply, here are the steps you need to take:
Purchase a LoRaWAN Gateway: First, you need to purchase a LoRaWAN gateway. This will allow you to connect your sensors to the LoRaWAN network. Depending on your location, you may need to source a private gateway or use a public network. For example, The Things Network allows you to connect to a public LoRaWAN network.
Set up your Sensor Network: You will need to set up the sensor network to connect your sensors to the gateway. This can be done using special protocol, like LoRa modules and radios, or using existing wireless networks, like Bluetooth or WiFi.
Add a Network Server: You will need to set up a network server so that the data from your sensors can be collected and stored. There are some open-source solutions available, or you may need to purchase an enterprise server, depending on how much data you need to collect.
Create Application: Finally, you will need to set up an application or dashboard to display the data collected from your sensors. You may need to customize this based on your needs and requirements.
These are the basics steps you will need to take to get your sensors communicating with LoRaWAN. You may also want to look into additional features, like security and accessibility. Additionally, for more detailed information about setting up your LoRaWAN network, you can review this guide from The Things Network.
I hope this helps!
