Dragino Lora shield 1.4v

Hi Teams,

i brought Dragino Lora Kit LG01-N & LORA Shield 1.4v along with Adriuno UNO, i have registered the Gateway successfully with TTN network and i tired to connect Node with that gateway, before connect i tested sensors alone within adruino and tests are ok sensord given me data’s.

to test sensor

  • i uploaded DHT11 sensors code, result is ok

-i uploaded lora node codes to adruino, yes its connected and given some unreadable values, however i assumed its connected.

-now i want to upload both lora node and sensor code to adruino and i am having different different errors, i have changed many codes from internet all have some error, please could you help me to resolve this issues for 868.7Mhz…

Thank you.

Very sorry to hear that, as this kit does not contain a LoRaWAN gateway, but is priced as something that should. The vendor will claim that what they sold you is a “LoRa gateway” not a “LoRaWAN gateway” - but this is a silly distinction, they are clearly marketing it to people who do not know the distinction, selling those in ecommerce channels rather than their actual gateways, and the box they sold you doesn’t really make sense for most non-LoRaWAN LoRa uses either.

To make the limited use of that box that is possible, you would need to modify the node firmware to use only the single frequency and spreading factor which that node-impersonating-a-gateway is able to monitor. That might be simplest in a transmit-only case, for example adafruit tiny lora (you will still have to change the frequency and spreading factor to whatever your receiver supports)

Perhaps you could send it back and get a real gateway instead.
