      @neilh20. Hey Neil! Sorry it’s been a while, but just a quick update. I was able to get it to work. I ended up purchasing a new XBee cellular modem (same type) alongside the Digi IoT Development Kit. Works great now!

       

      I’m thinking the issue was either that I had set up the modem with a board that wasn’t the dedicated XCTU board (I was using the Xbee Grove Development board). Either that, or I just messed up the set-up with the Xbee from the get-go.

       

      Thanks for all your help!

      Ok, thanks Neil. I’ll look into it.

      @vogelrnws Ah, ok! Awesome, thank you. And is there a place to put the apn in the main code?

      @vogelrnws Hi there! So I uploaded the files onto the Xbee and used a python editor to change the main.py file. Is there any arduino code you would recommend using alongside this approach?

      @vogelrnws I was spending some time looking at the cellular stuff and I decided I’d try to use the python example you used, but I can’t seem to access the files through the Google Drive. Also, I don’t think I currently have a python editor. What is a good one that you would suggest? Thanks

      @neilh20 Ok, that sounds good. I just sent the details to your email. Let me know if it still works.

      @vogelrnws Thank you for sending that. I’ll be sure to take a look at it if ThingSpeak doesn’t work.

       


      @neilh20
      I tried running the code with your ModularSensors library, and it still didn’t work. The apn I’m using is hologram. If I am using a Hologram SIM card, is that correct, or should I change the source to something else? Also, what is Tera-term with Timestamp, and is that something I should consider using?

      And also, one more question. Is ThingSpeak with API different that ThingSpeak with MQTT? Right now, it looks like I’m using the MQTT connection.

      Hi there @vogelrnws. Honestly, It’d be awesome if you could send that code. I’m still considering my options on the method to publish the data, but that could be helpful!

       


      @neilh20
      , ok! I’ll try that. For some reason (not really sure why), the code all of a sudden started saying that it couldn’t connect to the internet for clock sync. I’m looking into that, so I’ll get back to you once I fix that. Thank you again!
