HT-M01S Indoor LoRa Gateway Quick Start¶
HT-M01S is positioned as a low-cost standard gateway for indoor use. LoRa part based on the SX1308 + 1255/7 structure, we innovatively use ESP32 as the main control chip, and completely transplant the hardware driver, data forwarding and message queue of SX1308 to the ESP32 platform. There is no need to run the Linux operating system separately. It is simpler and more convenient to use. It can be connected to the cloud server via Wi-Fi or Ethernet, can be powered by Type-C_5V or PoE, and has a 1.8-inch TFT display under the tempered glass panel to display gateway information.
Configure the gateway¶
The HT-M01S gateway has already downloaded the relevant program when it leaves the factory, and it can be used with only a few simple operations.
After powering on the gateway through Type-C or PoE, keep pressing the “+” button, then press the “RST” button, and then release the “RST” button. After the gateway enters the interface shown in the figure below, release the “+” button .
At this time, find the WiFi named “M01S_XXXX”, connect to the WiFi with the password “heltec.org”, then enter “192.168.4.1” through the browser, enter the gateway configuration page.
Configure the HT-M01S gateway information on the page shown in the figure above, such as network mode, server address and port, regional frequency band, gateway channel, and time zone. Click “Submit” after the configuration is complete. If “NET MODE” selects “WiFi”, you need to configure the corresponding WiFi information, if “NET MODE” selects “Ethernet”, the network information will be directly obtained through Ethernet. At the same time, we will put the relevant firmware of HT-M01S on this webpage, and click “Firmware Update” to update accordingly.
The gateway will restart after the configuration is completed and submitted. When the gateway starts, it will automatically connect to the configured WiFi or connect to the Ethernet. If the connection fails, it will restart again until the connection is successful。
After the network connection is successful, the gateway will enter the interface shown in the figure below. You can view the gateway ID, the server address configured by the gateway, the frequency band, and the latest sending and receiving time.
By pressing the “+” button, you can control the TFT display switch, and by pressing the “-“ button, you can switch the display content.
By pressing the “-“ button, you can switch the display content. Check the sending and receiving situation of the gateway.
