Switching to mode, arming and disarming information:

Follow the Basic Operations With SimpleHw Devices guide, where you can also find information about LED behavior, relevant Sigfox messages and more.

Here’s what’s important for Press me messages:

  • To set this mode, the downlink needs to include this mode register setting: 0101

  • The uplink messages need to begin with the mode hex as the first byte: 01

Press me does not require arming or disarming. This means the device will not send the following events: 0x10 (Start of arming), 0x11 (End of arming), 0x14 (Disarmed by long press).


Guard me

Guard me sends messages once the object moves, vibrates or changes position. After the alert is sent, the device is inert for the duration of the sleep time to prevent draining the battery.

Because of the way the accelerometer works, the device will not detect movement perpendicular to the ground nor the pull of the Earth’s gravity (this means that e.g. the smooth opening of office doors would not be reported - use the Door mode for this use case).

Trace me sends messages while the object is moving and stops sending them when it’s still. While moving, it periodically sends a message (the period length is defined in the Tracing delay register) so you can trace the monitored object. No more messages are sent after stop of movement is detected and reported.

Event information

0x80

Monitor me

1

Sends vibration data in 10 bytes of the payload*

*Each of the 10 bytes in the payload that come after mode and event (after 0580) represents a time window. One bit represents one second, one byte represents up to 255 seconds. The number you receive is the number of seconds in this time window (max 0xFF - 255) when vibration was detected by the device. This means you can determine the intensity of vibration in % in the given time interval.

The Monitor me uplink event is received after the payload is full. This means that in default settings, the first message will come after 42:30 minutes (10 bytes, 255 seconds each, total of 2550 seconds). This interval can be prolonged with register 0x3C (Accelerometer measurement interval) - the default setting is 1 second. E.g. two seconds would make this interval 42:30 x 2 = 85 minutes.

Registers relevant for this mode:

If you change the general sensitivity of the accelerometer and the magnetometer (0x11 and 0x19), respective axis registers reset to 0 as the general settings replace them and vice versa.

Don’t drop me

Don’t drop me behaves similarly to Guard me except for its event (uplink message) is triggered by faster acceleration of the accelerometer in one of its axis and not just movement detection. Drop alert detection threshold can be defined.
Please note this mode should not be used on boards with an opto pin (SimpleIndustry with 2 external sensors) because of accelerometer consumption. Please contact us at ask.simplehw.eu for more information.

Legionella mode

Please note that the Legionella mode is only available on request as it is not included in the standard API 6 build due to its size. If you’re interested in this mode, contact us directly.

This mode was created to monitor water pipes and prevent growth of Legionella pneumophila bacteria that cause the legionnaire’s disease. A device with two external NTC sensors measures temperature of the pipe(s) in two modes and reports the temperature periodically.

Button pressed while the LED is active

Registers relevant for this mode:

If you change the general sensitivity of the accelerometer and the magnetometer (0x11 and 0x19), respective axis registers reset to 0 as the general settings replace them and vice versa.

Sends three types of messages based on button press length

Switching to mode, arming and disarming information:

Follow the Basic Operations With SimpleHw Devices guide, where you can also find information about LED behavior, relevant Sigfox messages and more.

Here’s what’s important for Blinker messages:

  • To set this mode, the downlink needs to include this mode register setting: 0160

  • The uplink messages need to begin with the mode hex as the first byte: 60

Blinker does not require arming or disarming. This means the device will not send the following events: 0x10 (Start of arming), 0x11 (End of arming), 0x14 (Disarmed by long press).


Stupid mode 1 (only 2 MAC addresses)

Sends 2 MAC addresses regularly in a predefined period. Precise localisation with an emphasis on using as little battery life as possible as the MACs are sent in one message.

Hex value: 0x12

Use cases: Simple WiFi tracking, tracing, keep-alive heartbeats, localisation in general

Devices that support this mode: SimplePack Plus

Required sensors: WiFi module

Mode-specific deltas:

Deltas are mode-specific register values different from register default values.

Heartbeat 3 sent every 24 hours

Uplink messages (events) used in this mode:

This mode does not send the mode, event and mask bytes as usual. In default settings, the only payload you’ll receive are two 6-byte MAC addresses in one message (max uplink payload) - similar to Atlas WiFi user modes without the mode+event uplink message.

Stupid mode 2

Sends only Sigfox metadata, no payload is sent

Switching to mode, arming and disarming information:

Follow the Basic Operations With SimpleHw Devices guide, where you can also find information about LED behavior, relevant Sigfox messages and more.

Here’s what’s important for Stupid mode 1 messages:

  • To set this mode, the downlink needs to include this mode register setting: 0112

  • When arming the device, you should see this message: 1210

  • When the device is armed, it should send you these two bytes: 1211

  • If you disarm the device via long press, you should receive this message: 1214


Stupid mode 2 (only empty payload)

This mode doesn’t send any payload, only Sigfox metadata. The messages are sent periodically and the time period can be adjusted. Used for Sigfox localisation with the lowest battery consumption possible.
