How to disable device-status requests (downlink) to device?

Hi there.

The LoRa App Server always responds to the node with an empty payload (downlink) if I do not send data. How can I disable this? Must send (LoRA App Server) in response to the node only if I send something.
Node class A.

It can be an ADR packet or a Request packet. I think they cannot be disabled.

When the ADR is adjusted they will dissapear. You can deactivate ADR in the node and StatusRequest in the server and they will not appear

How can I deactivate StatusRequest in the server?

Please note that the downlink frame is not empty, in the fOpts you’ll see a DevStatusReq (device-status request). This can be configured or disabled in the service-profile (in LoRa App Server):

Thanks, it works!
“Device-status request frequency (Frequency to initiate an End-Device status request (request/day). Set to 0 to disable.)” - I thought it was - 868 MHz.
excuse me :smile:

Yes, that will generate a lot of device-status requests :smile:

Hi all! I was reading about this post. I have a question. The frequency of requests per day, if I would like to know the status of a device hourly, do I have to set 24 for frequency or not?

The field defines the number of requests per day. Assuming that your days has also 24 hours, 24 sounds like a sensible number :wink:
