I obtained a Losant Builder Kit from Codestock2016. I have followed the instructions to setup the environment and am working on the tutorial. I have gotten to the point where I upload the sketch to the device and all seems to go well in the IDE:
When I open the serial monitor I obtain the image at the bottom of the post. I have triple checked that the baud matches in both the sketch and the Serial Monitor and can find no obvious problems with the installation. I am working on Windows 10 with Arduino IDE 1.6.9. This is my first experience with any kind of device like this and any insights would be greatly appreciated.
