Activating a device on LoopCloud enables seamless integration between the device and LoopCloud. While it is possible to manually configure the connection by manually adding a cloud connector yourself, device activation will automatically set up Cloud Connectors for you.
This page details the instructions for configuring cloud connectivity for LoopEdge-to-LoopCloud connectivity.
This procedure assumes that you already have created a LoopCloud Company and Project. Refer to the following documentation for instructions:
We recommend logging into both LoopCloud and LoopEdge at this time so that you can copy and paste the required information for connecting these platforms.
Create a LWM2M. DTLS connection. Pre-shared keys mode Model. It is also recommended to add MQTT connection parameters to the model. See Create a Device Model for further details.
In the Action list, click Status and select Activate.
|This one-time-only code will only be valid for the next 60 seconds. Be sure to take the following LoopEdge steps immediately. We recommend having the LoopEdge window open in your browser already.|
In the Activation Code pop-up, click the icon to copy the code to the clipboard.
Check Device Mngmt > Devices on LoopCloud to ensure that the connection works. A green status indicates that the MQTT connection works. Mouse over the status icon to view the full activation and connection status:
Activation: UNACTIVATED or ACTIVATED. Indicates if a LoopCloud user has copied the activation code for the device from the status menu.
