Assuming I have a device’s Device ID and Serial, is it possible to activate and claim a new device via cloud API without connecting it to a computer / phone first?
Hey @bks thanks for the post and welcome to the community!
Currently, I believe the ways to claim the device require some type of connection to the device physically to grab information from the device and send to the cloud. Here are some links on the ways to claim a device:
- Create claim code first: https://docs.particle.io/reference/device-cloud/api/#create-a-claim-code
- Claim device: https://docs.particle.io/reference/device-cloud/api/#claim-a-device
Particle SDK (Node.js):
- Requires device to be connected to the internet: https://docs.particle.io/reference/developer-tools/cli/#particle-device-add
