Sigfox is a solution dedicated to giving a voice to the physical world, thanks to our dedicated network.
We provide an inexpensive, reliable and low power solution for connecting sensors and devices.

The Sigfox protocol focuses on...

  • Simplicity - No configuration, connection request or signalling
  • Autonomy - Extremely low energy consumption; allowing years of autonomy on a single battery charge
  • Small Payload - No large assets or multimedia, only small messages

Sigfox Basics

Getting Started

Hardware
To start sending messages over the Sigfox network, you'll need to use a Sigfox-compatible communication module or development kit.
These are available from a large number of our partners, using standard radio chipsets.
Coverage
As Sigfox isn't intended for private networks, so you'll need to be in an area covered by our network to connect to our network. Fortunately, we're rapidly rolling out our gloabl network so please contact us if you're located in a not-yet covered country or area and we'll do our best to provide you access to the network as soon as possible.
Service Access
Sigfox is a service provider so you'll need a valid contract with us or your local Sigfox operator to retrieve the messages you send. Fortunately, a free contract with access to the complete Sigfox service, is included with all of our partner development kits!

Contact us if you need access to the service for prototypes built using modules rather than dev kits.
