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.

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
