Frequently Asked Questions
You can purchase the Soracom LTE-M Button directly from the Soracom IoT Store, or though any of our aproved distribution partners. Click here to shop now.
The battery life of the IoT Button depends on how often the button is pressed, how much time there is between each button push, and the quality of the two AA batteries used in the device.
In our testing, we found that ten pushes per day (spread evenly throughout the day) would provide around 185 days of battery life (half a year). That increased to around 338 days when the button was pressed 5 times per day.
We have created an easy-to-follow startup guide for activation the Button in Soracom. You can read our in-depth developer docs here.
The IoT Button transmits data over cellular LTE-M networks, so, therefore, needs to be in range of one of these to work as expected. Soracom currently provides LTE-M coverage in 36 countries including the UK, France, Germany, the US, Canada, and Spain. You can view our complete list of coverage here.
Full technical specifications for the button are listed on this page, right below this FAQ section.
