Welcome, we are excited to have you onboard!

Welcome, we are excited to have you onboard!

If you are reading this, you are probably one of the first people to get their hands on the Generic Node Sensor Edition. We are extremely excited to have you as a part of our community!

The Generic Node Sensor Edition is a unique device for several reasons:

  • It is a functional device that can be used for many LoRaWAN applications
  • It is a production-ready device that incorporates STMicroelectronics’ new STM32WL SOC
  • It is a reference design hardware
  • It has a source available firmware

Developer’s Beta rollout

The Generic Node Sensor Edition is currently in Beta phase.

This means:

  1. You are one of the few people who can actually experience the device hardware and firmware
  2. You can contribute to the development of the device

So, as part of the Beta phase we expect you to:

  • Be able to flash, debug and interact with the device
  • Be able to connect external serial loggers, debuggers and sensors
  • Contribute to the development of the device by raising issues
  • Develop and try different applications

And you can expect us to:

  • Prioritize any issue that you face
  • Analyze and incorporate your feedback

Where to start?

Check out Generic Node Sensor Edition Hardware and Software sections to get familiar with the device.

Read Hardware Setup and Software Setup sections for instructions on how to install all the necessary tools and prepare yourself for hardware and software development.

Visit Sensor Edition Tutorials page for some great, easy-to-follow video guides. Also, check out the Applications section for many application examples.

Where to contribute?

We use the Generic Node Sensor Edition Github repository in our development. You can file an issue to request a feature or report a bug.

The Generic Node Forum is where we have discussions and where you can provide feedback. You will be added to a private group with other Beta developers.

Have fun!

You will recieve a couple of emails to assist you with trying out some cool features that are only possible with the Generic Node Sensor Edition, like:

We look forward to seeing awesome projects being built with the Generic Node Sensor Edition! We will share with you all the cool things developed within the community.
