LoStik - The Open Source LoRa Development Tool
We deliver globally via FedEx and hold stocks ready for immediate shipment
We're pleased to bringing the LoStik to the UK and Europe. Very successfully crowd funded, the LoStik is now shipping and we have stock in Europe.
The LoStik is a USB-connected LoRaWAN development tool. It allows users to test LoRa networks and rapidly prototype devices. Simply plug it in to a USB port and it appears as a serial port. This gives you a simple terminal interface to configure and connect to a LoRaWAN network, and send/receive data.
You can use this to test your network, simulate other devices to debug integrations, build quick prototypes of LoRa nodes using a Raspberry Pi, or LoRaWAN enable an existing computer/device.
The LoStik is easily controlled by Python scripts using the serial port, there examples in the Github repository that give a great start to writing custom code for your application.
Note: This is a development tool, it doesn't come with a friendly GUI application, it's designed for low-level experimentation and testing of LoRaWAN.
