Reconfiguring / factory resetting 'Turnkey' Sensors

(Nick) #1

Beginner help required :grinning:! I’ve purchased a few different packs of sensors from “turnkey” solutions providers such as MyDevices as part of an R&D project.

I’ve also built/setup my own TTN gateway (ie using a Raspberry Pi - not from MyDevices).

  1. I’m guessing that the various MyDevices sensors get pre-joined OTAA to a private MyDevices Network Server. Is that correct? (I assume this as I can connect those devices and see them in a Cayenne MyDevices dashboard just by knowing their dev euid)

  2. So now I want to reconfigure these devices to connect directly to my ThingsNetwork application, via my own built TTN gateway. Is that even possible?

I only have the DevEUID for these sensors and as far as I can tell logging into Cayenne / MyDevices allows me to add and remove devices from my MyDevices application but NOT the MyDevices Network Server.

Any help and advise greatly appreciated!

Are the above dumb questions? If so kindly enlighten me.


maybe you tell us first what ’ a few different packs of sensors ’ are ?

enlighten us :sunglasses:

Sure thing!

Well I have one of these for example:

Tabs Motion Sensor

I also have one of these in the pack:

Netvox Wireless Water Sensor

@BoRRoZ would you agree with my question1 assumption that all of these devices have been pre-joined to the MyDevices Network Server before being sent out to me/customers?

Many thanks


  • The movement detector

’ The device shall enter installation mode after being commanded by the network and remain in installation mode until commanded by the network. ’

  • The watersensor

’ Availablethird-partyplatform:Actility/ThingPark,TTN,MyDevices/Cayenne ’

My impression is that they are (real turnkey) indeed preprogrammed for a specific network and without help of the manufacturer not easy to reconfigure for use on TTN.

Thank you @BoRRoZ. That’s frustrating learn but I appreciate the reply.
