Device Setup Made Even Easier: Introducing the New Web-Based Process

Lauren Lund article author avatarLauren LundMarch 07, 2023

We are incredibly excited to announce the release of our brand new Particle device setup process, that you can try out today at! This tool provides a seamless and intuitive way for users to set up new Particle devices, so you can get to building your Particle-powered projects as quickly as possible.

Over the years, we have offered a variety of different methods for setting up devices, ranging from mobile apps to web apps to command line tools. While these options have been useful, new browser technologies (specifically WebUSB) have enabled us to deliver the best experience for all Particle devices through a web browser.

The new setup process is now the default experience for new users. It has been designed with user-friendliness in mind, so even novice users can get started with Particle quickly and easily.


From linking your device to your account…



…to updating your device to the latest firmware version



…all the way to creating a product



…and naming your device

The new setup process guides you through each step of the way.

We are grateful to our amazing Community for being the beta testers of this tool, and providing us with valuable input and feedback. Your contributions have been instrumental in testing this tool, and we couldn’t have done it without you!
