To confirm, most (if not all) Zane HU are supported on TTN. We have zTemp, zTracks, zDoor and other sensors all connecting via TTN to our GridLocate platform.
The current hardware version of zTrack (v4) only supports ABP. Zane are working on v5, due for release Q1 2018 which WILL support OTAA.
Here’s how to add them to TTN:
Note: all zTrack’s come with a label with the unique ID of the device. This is based on a partial serial number of the radio module. You use this to create the Device EUI as “00 06 11 00 xx xx xx xx”. E.g. if your label is 71 01 01 01, the device EUI is “00 06 11 00 71 01 01 01”
Step 1: Create your TTN Device Record.
a.) Click to add your device to your TTN application.
b.) Enter a unique deviceID: I usually use zaneXXXXXXXX
c.) Enter the Device EUI (see above: e.g. 00 06 11 00 xx xx xx xx)
d.) Let it default to OTAA and then click Save.
e.) Click back into the TTN device and click to edit settings.
f.) Switch the device to ABP, and click save
g.) You’ll then be taken back to the device view which has all the settings you’ll need for step 2.
Step 2: Configure device
1.) Install and run the zTrack configuration tool. You can get this from Zane HU.,
Please note, the config tool (windows 10) is in beta release. It has occasionally crashed on me, and I just reload.
2.) Once zTrack config tool is running, plug in your zTrack via USB
3.) It may take a minute or two for the zTrack to be recognised. Shaking the device might speed up this process, as the device might be in sleep mode. The config tool should then recognise the zTrack and display two tabs.
4.) Tab 1 allows you to configure device settings, such as sensitivity and frequency.
5.) Tab 2 allows you to configure LoRaWAN settings.
6.) It’s fairly self-explanatory. You need to copy and paste the Application EUI, Device Address, Network Session Key and App Session Key from the TTN “Device Overview” page to the zTrack config tool. Click Save.
7.) Once the changes have been confirmed, unplug the USB.
In my experience, the zTrack is then reporting to TTN with 1-2 minutes.
We’re currently testing the zTrack on our GridLocate.com platform. If you have any questions about the zTrack and LoRaWAN GPS tracking, feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
