Connect HT-M00 to LoRa Server

[English]

Summary

This article aims to describe how to connect HT-M00 Gateway to a LoRa server, ssuch as TTN/TTS, ChirpStack, which facilitates secondary development and rapid deployment of LoRa devices.

Before all operation, make sure the HT-M00 is runing well . If not, please refer to this HT-M00 Quick Start document.

 

Connect to TTN/TTS

Register a LoRa gateway in TTN

Select a cluster in the TTN console page to start adding devices and gateways. Or start adding devices and gateways in TTS console.

Create a new gateway.

Fill in the HT-M00 information as shown below and complete the addition.

  • Gateway EUI – The unique ID of HT-M00 gateway, view from the display screen of the HT-M00 or view through the serial port (the gateway ID will be printed through the serial port when the HT-M00 starts).

  • Gateway ID – Generated by default.

  • Gateway name – Filled in by the user, can be filled in arbitrarily.

  • Frequency Plan – Matches the LoRa band configuration in HT-M00.

Configure the Gateway

In the HT-M00 gateway, the server address, port, frequency band, and channel need to be configured. The server address, port, frequency band and channel are configured in the “HT-M00 Config” interface, please refer to the HT-M00 Quick Start document.

Check the server address in the gateway details.

Connect to ChirpStack Server

ChirpStack is the most popular LoRa server open source project, widely used in many fields, and also the best choise for a private LoRa server.

ChirpStack Gateway Bridge

One thing need attention! the ChirpStack need a special service named Gateway Bridge, which converts LoRa® Packet Forwarder protocols into a ChirpStack Network Server common data-format(JSON and Protobuf).

the Gateway Bridge service can running on the Raspberry Pi or the ChirpStack server.

Install ChirpStack Gateway Bridge: https://www.chirpstack.io/gateway-bridge/install/debian/

Register LoRa Gateway in ChirpStack

Fill in the HT-M00 information as shown below and complete the addition.

  • Gateway ID – The unique ID of HT-M00 gateway, view from the display screen of the HT-M00 or view through the serial port (the gateway ID will be printed through the serial port when the HT-M00 starts).

Connect to ChirpStack Server

In the HT-M00 gateway, the server address, port, frequency band, and channel need to be configured. The server address, port, frequency band and channel are configured in the “HT-M00 Config” interface, please refer to the HT-M00 Quick Start document.
