Introduction


The Microchip LoRa Mote is a battery powered demonstration/develop board populated with a 868 or 915 Mhz LoRa module.
It has a micro USB connector for ASCII command communication between the pc and the LoRa module or you can use a PIC programmer to program the on board PIC18LF45K50 MCU. There are 2 versions of this Mote, one with Oled and one with LCD display (This tutorial works for the LCD version)
With this Mote you can send light and temperature to a LoRaWan network like The Things Network (TTN).

In this tutorial I will show you how to visualize the received data from TTN in Cayenne.
I assume that the Mote is working correct; that means, there is a TTN account, you made an Application and the device is correctly registered so, the data is already visible in the TTN Console.
Of course you already have a Cayenne user account.
