LoRa/LoRaWAN Gateway Kit

Introduction

LoRa is a perfect long-range wireless solution to create low-power, wide area networks.So far we have released several “LoRa” boards such as Seeeduino LoRaWan and Grove LoRa Radio etc. However if you want to build you own LoRa network, there are 3 things that you should prepare to get started: a Gateway, at least one Node and a local server where you can monitor all your devices.

This kit provides all the basic elements you need: a Raspberry Pi 3, a Seeeduino LoRaWAN with GPS and a gateway & local server that allows you to collect and transfer data among all your LoRa nodes. By connecting the gateway with Seeeduino LoRaWAN and Grove modules, you can build your IOT prototype within minutes.

Regarding the gateway module RHF0M301, it is a 10 channel(8 x Multi-SF + 1 x Standard LoRa + 1 x FSK) LoRaWan gateway moduel with a 24pin DIP port on board, users can easily connect the RHF0M301 with PRI 2 bridge RHF4T002, adapter for Raspberry Pi 3 and RHF0M301. We also included a 868MHz antenna, an 8GB SD card and USB cables, Ethernet Cables and other accessories.

Warning

Please always plug 3.7V Lipo battery in case USB power supply is not sufficient. This wiki works for both 868MHz kit and 915MHz kit.

User Manual

The user manual from RisingHF has well instructed how to use the LoRaWan Getway Kit, it will describe the usage of this kit in details, including - how to buildup hardware, - how to connect to a LoRaWan network, - how to test hardware and so on.

Please click to download the User Manual.

Note

Please note that the part list in the user manual is not the same as the LoRaWAN Getway Kit. When you run Session 3.1 Loriot Server Gateway Registration Step i “./lrt -f -i eth0 -s cn1.loriot.io”, there will be an error as below.

The reason behind is that Loriot server is upgraded while our image SDK is not upgraded yet. So please follow below instructions to upgrade the gateway SDK manually. We will upgrade the image later on.

cd /home/rxhf/loriot/1.0.2
sudo systemctl stop pktfwd
sudo gwrst
wget https://cn1.loriot.io/home/gwsw/loriot-risinghf-rhf2s008-rhf1257-SPI-0-latest.bin -O loriot-gw.bin
chmod +x loriot-gw.bin
./loriot-gw.bin -f -s cn1.loriot.io
