Congratulations, you are nearly there! This page will take you through creating a Location Device. After this tutorial we will show you one final introductory tutorial which will show you how to quickly set up a Location Application and then we will continue our tutorials on our Hackster page. You have done great! Well done! The hard part is over and after the following short Location Applications tutorial you have your first IoT JumpWay Network setup and it is time to start coding. Enjoy!
Creating your first Location Device..
Now you have created your first Location Zone, lets set up your first Location Device. In the left hand menu click on the "Location Devices" button to toggle the drop down navigation, then click on the "Create Device" button.
Location Device Configuration..
Once you have landed on the "Create Device" page you will see the first section which is the Location Device Configuration area. In this section we will select the "Location Space" and "Location Zone" that this device is to be attached to, enter a "Device Name", select a "Device Type" and finally add an optional "Device Description". Fill out this section then meet us in the next instructions below.
Add Actuators & Sensors..
At this point it is time to add sensors and actuators to your device. This step is required to provide you with sensor/actuator IDs for the "Publish To Device Sensors/Actuators", "Publish To Device Warnings" and "Subscribe To Device Commands" functions of the MQTT Library. This stage is very straight forward, simply click on the sensor/actuator that is included on your device and it will be attached once you submit your new device. If there is not a button available for your desired sensor or actuator please contact us so that we can add it.Once you have added your sensors and actuators, click on the "Create Location Device" button and make a note of the details provided to you as you will need them in the future tutorials on our Hackster page.
You have now set up your first IoT JumpWay Location Device and there is only one more step to go, to go through the final stage of setting up your IoT JumpWay Network, click on the button below. Make sure you have saved the credentials provided to you. You will learn how to use these in our Hackster tutorials.
