Amazon Sidewalk


The Amazon Sidewalk protocol is owned and licensed by Amazon. Before continuing with the nRF Connect SDK for Sidewalk, you must familiarize yourself with the official Amazon license, including all the applicable restrictions. Please note, that redistributing Sidewalk under the nRF Connect SDK is prohibited.

Be aware, that by downloading and including the Sidewalk repository, you accept the above-mentioned license.

Due to these restrictions, Sidewalk cannot be automatically fetched through the nRF Connect SDK and will require performing a dedicated setup. For details, see Setting up the SDK for Amazon Sidewalk.


Amazon Sidewalk is available only in the United States of America. To an extent, any Sidewalk gateway functionality might be used outside of the U.S., however, it should be used only for the Amazon Sidewalk endpoint development purposes. In addition, we recommend that you consult with your local regulatory bodies, and check if the gateway is allowed to operate its radio in your locale, as U.S. license-free band devices, only for development.
