Dual-Mining: A Balancing Act

The concept of dual-mining, or earning from two different networks using the same hardware, has sparked plenty of interest in the community. However, it's worth noting that there are regulations put in place by the Helium Foundation Manufacturing Compliance Committee (MCC) on dual-mining that can affect how it's implemented. Therefore, when ThingsIX is enabled on your device the Helium functionality will be disabled to avoid this conflict.

It's also important to note that these new features and services require a subscription to Nebra's Premium Dashboard for low-cost of $2.99 per/month or an annual subscription fee of $29.99

Seamless Integration: Getting ThingsIX Up and Running on Your Hotspot

Unleashing the power of ThingsIX on your Nebra hotspot is a breeze, thanks to our straightforward, step-by-step setup process. To get started, you simply need to have installed the latest Nebra firmware on your hotspot, whether it's a Nebra device or a supported third-party hotspot.
