Thingstream Button: Getting Started

What does the button do?


Your Thingstream button sends a JSON data payload over the air to Thingstream. The payload includes information about the mobile network that the button has connected to and can include location data based on either the cell tower location or precise GPS location of the button.


You can read more about the button behaviour in our What to expect from your button guide.


Activating your button


When your button is shipped to you, you will receive an email that will contain one redemption code per button that will match to the numeric identifier of the button.


On receipt of your button


Configure button actions


Your Thingstream domain is pre-configured to send an email containing the button payload. Once you've activated it, just press the button and check your inbox. There are other flows available, in the public flow library.
