Hey folks! We've just released a whole new way to easily integrate any of your Sigfox devices with the Wia cloud platform. Here are the steps you need to follow to get up and going.

P.S. If you want to see your devices on iOS and Android, pre-register here for our beta.

Create Your Wia Account

If you haven't already got one, click here to sign up.

Set Up a Space

Once logged in, set up a new Space for your devices. I'm going to call mine My Sigfox Devices. When your Space is ready, you should see a screen like the one below.

Start Setting Up Integration

Open the Space dropdown, by clicking on the Space name in the top left corner, and click Settings. Select Integrations in the sidebar.

Click Setup to begin setting up the integration.

How to Get Your Sigfox API Keys

  • Go to the Sigfox dashboard
  • Go to Group > Your Group Name > API Access
  • To generate your API keys, follow these steps:
    • Click on New in the top right hand corner
    • Enter Wia as the name
    • Add DEVICES_MESSAGES[R] option and generate keys

Copy and paste the Login and Password keys into the input fields in Wia and click Create Integration.

How to Set Up Your Sigfox Callback

Now that you've setup the integration. Let's set up the callback for your devices.

  • Go to the Sigfox dashboard
  • Select Device Type, then the name of the device type you would like to integrate
  • On the left, select Callbacks
  • Click New in the top left corner to create a new callback
  • Select Custom Callback and enter the parameters below:

Start sending data from any of your Sigfox devices of that device type and they will start to appear in Wia.

Invite People to Your Space (Optional)

You can now share your Space with other users. Click on the Space name in the top left corner, go to Settings then click Users in the sidebar. Enter the email address of the person(s) you would like to invite.

That's all folks!

P.S. If you need any help with getting set up, tweet us or email
