Is there a way to connect PRTG to a LoRa-backend?

Hi,

I'm trying to setup a LoRa-network for my thesis and I'm also trying to include PRTG. Is there a way to connect PRTG to a LoRa-backend or a way to input and convert payloads from the LoRa-sensors?

Regards,

Pieter Hap

Hi Pieter,

I am afraid that is not possible, at least there are no default sensors for LoRa Networks. You can try to use (depending on the platform) the standard sensors such as WMI, SNMP...

Best regards.

Hi, I'm working on some integrations at he moment.... I'll report back when I have a solutions.

Thinking at this stage thethingsnetwork.org --> DB --> API read (to local DB) then SQL poll local DB.

Yes, there is a nice way by using TheThingsNetwork (TTN) and a PRTG customrest sensor. Do not forget to activate the REST integration service at TTN!

Hello there,

The Things Network provide an Storage integration which can effectively be used with the following sensor depending on the use case:

However, The Thins Network relies on the old stack version (v2) which will be replaced on the medium term by The Thing Stack (https://www.thethingsindustries.com/docs/).

Here is the address of the new Console (community): https://eu1.cloud.thethings.network/console The documentation of the Storage integration of the new stack is available here: https://www.thethingsindustries.com/docs/integrations/storage/

To send payloads into PRTG, you also can also use Node-RED with our PRTG Node-RED Connector You will find information regarding Node-RED integration right here: https://www.thethingsindustries.com/docs/integrations/node-red/

Regards.

This sample works with the Dragino LTH308.

You have to activate the function datastorage on TheThingsNetwork and can then access the information with a custom REST sensor.

PRTG Main Sensor = TTN Account Service URL: http://XXXXX.data.thethingsnetwork.org

Subsensor configuration (all LoRaWAN sensors in TTN): I had to use "no authentification" and a custom REST header:

  • REST query: /api/v2/query/TTNSensorName?last=20m
  • REST header: Accept:application/json Authorization:key ttn-account-v2.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Furtheron I used a custom sensor configuration. Copy this to the \Custom Sensors\rest subfolder in PRTG.

{
  "prtg": {
    "description" : {
      "device": "Dragino LTH308",
      "comment": "TheThingsNetwork Dragino LTH308 temperature sensor"
    },
    "result": [
      {
        "channel": "TempC_DS",
		"CustomUnit": "°C",
		"value": "0.TempC_DS"
      },
	  {
        "channel": "TempC_SHT",
		"CustomUnit": "°C",
		"value": "0.TempC_SHT"
      },
	  {
        "channel": "Hum_SHT",
		"CustomUnit": "% (~30g/m³ bei 30°C)",
		"value": "0.Hum_SHT"
      }
	]
  }
}
