Connect your LoRaWAN device and verify its connection status - AWS IoT Core

Connect your LoRaWAN device and verify its connection status

Before you can check the device connection status, you must have already added your device and connected it to AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN. For information about how to add your device, see Add your wireless device to AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN.

After you've added your device, refer to your device's user manual to learn how to initiate sending an uplink message from your LoRaWAN device.

Check device connection status using the console

To check the connection status using the console, navigate to the Devices page of the AWS IoT console and choose the device you've added. In the Details section of the Wireless devices details page, you'll see the date and time the last uplink was received.

Check device connection status using the API

To check the connection status using the API, use the GetWirelessDeviceStatistics API. This API doesn't have a request body and only contains a response body that shows when the last uplink was received.

HTTP/1.1 200 Content-type: application/json { “LastUplinkReceivedAt”: “2021-03-24T23:13:08.476015749Z”, "LoRaWAN": { "DataRate": 5, "DevEui": "647fda0000006420", "Frequency": 868100000 "Gateways": [ { "GatewayEui": "c0ee40ffff29df10", "Rssi": -67, "Snr": 9.75 } ], “WirelessDeviceId”: “30cbdcf3-86de-4291-bfab-5bfa2b12bad5" }

Next steps

Now that you have connected your device and verified the connection status, you can observe the format of the uplink metadata recieved from the device by using the MQTT test client on the Test page of the AWS IoT console. For more information, see View format of uplink messages sent from LoRaWAN devices.
