When using the SigFox network, Always connect the appropriate LoRa antenna to your device. See the figures below for the correct antenna placement

Lopy4 Fipy

Connecting to SigFox

The following tutorials demonstrate how to register and get started with the SiPy. The board can be configured for operation in various countries based upon specified RCZ zones (see the Sigfox class for more info). The SiPy, LoPy 4, and FiPy supports both uplink and downlink Sigfox messages as well as device to device communication via its FSK Mode Sigfox.

from network import Sigfox
import socket

# init Sigfox for RCZ1 (Europe)
sigfox = Sigfox(mode=Sigfox.SIGFOX, rcz=Sigfox.RCZ1)

# create a Sigfox socket
s = socket.socket(socket.AF_SIGFOX, socket.SOCK_RAW)

# make the socket blocking

# configure it as uplink only
s.setsockopt(socket.SOL_SIGFOX, socket.SO_RX, False)

# send some bytes
s.send(bytes([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12]))
