In order to send a Sigfox message, the device need to register with the Sigfox Backend. Navigate to https://backend.sigfox.com/activate to find the list of Sigfox enabled development kits.
Select Pycom to proceed.
Next choose a Sigfox Operator for the country where the device will be activated. Find the specific country and select the operator to continue.

The Device ID and PAC number are retrievable through a couple of commands via the REPL.
from network import Sigfox import binascii # initalise Sigfox for RCZ1 (You may need a different RCZ Region) sigfox = Sigfox(mode=Sigfox.SIGFOX, rcz=Sigfox.RCZ1) # print Sigfox Device ID print(binascii.hexlify(sigfox.id())) # print Sigfox PAC number print(binascii.hexlify(sigfox.pac()))

Once the device's Device ID and PAC number have been entered, create an account. Provide the required information including email address and click to continue.
An email confirming the creation of a Sigfox Backend account and the successful registration of the device should arrive at the users inbox.
