Testing the application

After successfully associating your nRF9160 DK with your nRF Connect for Cloud account, you can start testing it.

The application that is programmed is the nRF9160: Asset Tracker from the nRF Connect SDK.

Complete the following steps to test the application:

  1. Turn on or reset your nRF9160 DK and wait until LED3 is off and LED4 is on, indicating that the connection to nRF Connect for Cloud has been established.
  2. Go to nRF Connect for Cloud (nrfcloud.com) and sign in.
  3. Click Devices in the navigation pane on the left and open the entry for your device.
  4. Toggle Switch 1 on the nRF9160 DK to simulate orientation change.
    Observe that the Terminal card in nRF Connect for Cloud displays a FLIP event, and the orientation change is logged in the Asset Orientation card.
If you experience problems and need to check the log messages, open nRF Connect for Desktop and launch nRF Connect LTE Link Monitor. After connecting to your Development Kit (DK), you can see the log messages in the terminal view.
