One or more devices are transmitting messages but they are not shown within the Sigfox Backend or transmitted to your IoT platform.


Sigfox recommends to follow the checklist herebelow in order to troubleshoot any message delivery problem.

If all checks are OK but the problem persists, please contact your Sigfox Distributor Service Desk.

1Device identifier (ID)

Check that the Sigfox identifier of the device and the one in the Backend match. The device identifier might be retrieved as follows:

  • Sigfox Ready end products may show the ID on a sticker.
  • Usually, the device ID can be retrieved via AT command over USB or serial port.
  • If a Sigfox Verified module is embedded, you may find the ID displayed on the module casing too.
Look for the right device ID in the Backend.
