Work with the Cayenne Dashboard - LoRa Device (part 4)

So that we also receive data for our Gateway, we will take the example from Part 1 rebuild on LoRa. To do this, we need to replace the D1 Mini with a ESP32 with LoRa replace. The DHT11 let's connect to the Pin Gpio22 and the Relay with the Pin Gpio23.

Registration at the Gateway:

After the Sketch has been uploaded and the program has been started, the circuit sends a data packet via LoRa every 10 seconds. If we now call up the Gateway website with the Browser, we should see the MAC address of our circuit next to the "Register" button.

We can now give the device a name and then register it. The device is displayed in the device list of the gateway.

Now we should also see the channels in the Cayenne Dashboard.

Now we can add and configure the Widgets to the Dashboard as described in Part 1. We also have to create a Widget with a button to switch the relay.

Have fun crafting.
