Device status

ChirpStack supports periodically requesting the Device Status, using the DevStatusReq mac-command specified by the LoRaWAN® protocol. A device will respond to this request by sending its battery status (if available) and its demodulation signal-to-noise ratio in dB for the last successfully received request.

When the device status is available, it will be exposed through the configured integrations.

Exposed information

  • Margin: the demodulation signal-to-noise ratio in dB rounded to the nearest integer value for the last successfully received DevStatusReq command.
  • External power source: if the device was powered by an external power-source.
  • Battery level unavailable: if this is set to true, no battery level is available.
  • Battery level: battery level as percentage.
