The Things Stack Open Source can also be installed on a Raspberry Pi 3 or 4 running balena.
To run The Things Stack you need to deploy it to a balenaCloud fleet. This can be done by by clicking the button below:
First, follow the instructions in your balenaCloud dashboard and click
Create and deploy.
Add device and configure the balenaOS file by filling in the presented form. Click
Download balenaOS to download the resulting OS file and flash it to an SD card. Insert the SD card into your Raspberry Pi, connect it to the Internet and power it up. Enjoy the magic 🌟Over-The-Air🌟!
Note:If you have a LoRa concentrator for the Raspberry Pi (e.g. RAK2245 or RAK2287 SPI-based) you can also turn your Pi in to a LoRaWAN gateway by running the
basicstationservice alongside The Things Stack. Find the project here. Or having everything together including Node-RED, InfluxDB and Grafana for a truly standalone gateway. Check this out here.
