Hello World example on SodaqOne?

Next to my own single channel gateway, there should be a TTN Gateway close. Though… I have been playing for about a week now and didn’t get a sign of any message sent by the UniversalTracker on my SodaqOne. I figure something in my TTN setup is not right yet.

Therefor I was now trying to get a simple ‘Hello World’ running on it sending a message. As the SodaqOne is based on Autonomo (is it really?) I figured I could use its Hello World example. Though … to what should I set the BEE_VCC definition? Is there any running Hello World example for the One?

Haha… the good thing about using forums… After waiting for an answer and ‘unfocussing’ always an idea pops up…

I changed BEE_VCC with ENABLE_PIN_IO and now it compiles for the SodaqOne and I am receiving packets;-)

The BEE_VCC pin on the Autonomo is used for switching on and off the VCC pin of the Bee socket. There is no equivalent on the SodaqONE.

The ENABLE_PIN_IO pin needs to be set to OUTPUT HIGH in order to run the SodaqONE off of a battery or any other non-USB power source. This should be done at the start of the sketch.

Thanks. That clarifies what it does!

Could you show the entire source / settings you are using. I am trying the same but i am getting no reply from device. I’ve change the item so it compiled for One but still no joy.

I am thinking you set the DevAddr differently?

I cannot exactly recall what I changed but think I used the code below. In the code below I just changed my devAddr, appSKey and nwkSKey (that I registered on/ got from staging.thethingsnetwork.org) values to XX. You have to set these to values that ‘belong’ to you.
