How to use CBOR

Thingsee messages are created using open CBOR binary data serialization. This page has a list of all properties that are, at the moment, available for CBOR message content. New properties are added based on need.

Thingsee Open Device API

There are ways to make any sensor connected and managed through the open API, so that the application & services creators can focus on creating their stuff instead of worrying about the hardware Thingsee Open Device API is a low-level API and message description for IoT device vendors.

Wirepas firmware requirements

Requirements When creating Wirepas sensors the following requirements are expected the sensor will use minimum of Wirepas 5.0 The sensor will use Wirepas endpoint 21 for the Thingsee messages The sensor will support at least the minimum set of Thingsee Common Messages Optional functionality the sensor may support Thingsee heart-beat mechanism Minimum set of Thingsee Common Messages to be listed here

Thingsee LEAKAGE RUGGED is a wireless IoT sensor for harsh environments that can detect even the smallest of leakages. As IP67 approved product, it can be used to identify water leakages and measure other environmental factors in extreme conditions such as factories, industries and even outdoors.


is a wireless IoT sensor that can be used to measure the angle of any rotational object such as if a valve is open or close. More specifically, it is possible to know the absolute valve’s angle.

Thingsee AIR

Thingsee AIR is a state of the art, battery powered wireless IoT sensor for your indoor air quality monitoring. Together with Co², TVOC, temperature, barometric pressure, humidity sensors and ambient light sensor, it’s a perfect device to provide an extensive overlook to both present air quality data and the data history.

Thingsee BEAM

Thingsee BEAM is a wireless IoT sensor for short distance measurement. This is an excellent tool for measuring e.g. container or dispenser fill rates. Thingsee BEAM can be used for various facility management applications, asset tracking, parking facility solutions and more.


Product information Product name Thingsee DEVICE TEMPLATE Product description This is a template for the super-set of features and functions for any Thingsee device. The mother of all IoT products.


Thingsee DISTANCE is a wireless IoT sensor for measuring short-range distance and e.g. a container fill rates. Measurement range : 50mm - 1500mm Measured accuracy: ±5% Test material used: solid, matte, white, 100mm reference distance Distance sensing area is a cone shape, 30-35 degrees If there are two or more objects reflecting light back to sensor, sensor computes average from these.
