In this section we will confirm that our gateway has deployed, observe that it detects a BT610, configure that BT610, and finally visualize the sensor data coming from that BT610. Please follow the steps below.

Viewing LwM2M Object Data

Once connected, you can view the LwM2M data supported by the device using the Objects menu.

Click Objects, then select an LwM2M object you’d like to view the data from.

Click Read Object to send the LwM2M read request for the desired LwM2M object. After a few seconds, this will refresh the contents of the page.

From here, you can read/write values or execute operations related to the connected device.

Setting Up and Viewing a Measurement

To view data on a graph, it must be setup as a data point. Select Device types, then Device protocols from the left-most sidebar.

Expand the Object you wish to make a data point from. Click the Resource to expand the view.

Click Send measurement to enable measurement and specify a Type, Series and Unit.

To setup the device to automatically report the value upon connection, click Auto observe.

Specify the parameters such as minimum and maximum period or “less than/greater than” threshold for the observe to specify conditions for the value to update.

WARNING: Setting the observe rate to report data often can result in very high data usage.

Click Save to save your settings

For a quick verification that data points are being captured, use the Measurement view.

Select your device, then click Measurement.

Each data point series setup for your device will be plotted.

Default Dashboard

By default the Cumulocity IoT platform will provide a dashboard to display your MG100 data and any BT610/BT510 sensor data the MG100 is receiving. An example of the dashboard can be seen below. For more information on how to create and customize new dashboards please reach out to your contact at Software AG or Laird Connectivity.

NOTE: To view BT610 sensor battery life you must first enable battery reporting on the BT610 sensor itself. This feature is off by default. It can be enabled by connecting to the sensor with the BT610 Mobile App. We recommend setting the ‘battery sense interval’ to a value other than 0, for example 60.


User Defined Server

The Peer URL must be set using the mobile app.

Depending on the servers support for bootstrap, enable or disable bootstrap with the mobile app or use the following command via the UART console:

# disable bootstrap
attr set 264 0

# enable bootstrap
attr set 264 1
