Integrations / Connection guides / Aranet


Aranet offer wireless sensors and a IoT ecosystem for indoor, horticulture, livestock and retail monitoring.


The goal is to set up an integration between a Aranet cloud and Blockbax.

  1. Blockbax project
  2. Access to the Aranet cloud dashboard
  3. At least one sensors connected to the Aranet cloud.
Steps to connect a device

Before you can connect your device(s) you will first need to setup an ‘Inbound Connector’ in Blockbax. Aranet uses SenML for their messages for which we provide a integration template. See the SenML documentation for more information.

After setting up the inbound connector you will need to set up the integration from the side of Aranet perform the following steps:

  1. Login to the Aranet dashboard

  2. Go to ‘Settings’ -> ‘Integrations’ and click on ‘New Integration’.

  3. Click on ‘Edit List’ to select the sensors you want to configure.

  4. Then choose a name, schedule and start date and configure the rest according to the table below:

    field value
    Url Your inbound connector endpoint that you noted during the preparation
    API key Your Blockbax access key starting with ApiKey
  5. Switch the ‘Enable integration’ on.

You can test if everything works by opening the Blockbax web app, creating a subject type with the previously mentioned metric external IDs and a subject with the device serial number as the subject external ID.
