Get started

This hands-on tutorial is meant to get you started on Pantavisor and Pantahub with ready-to-use Raspberry Pi pre-compiled images. You do not need any additional experience with the Raspberry Pi platform to follow along.


Before starting this guide, make sure you have created a pantahub account and installed the pvr command line tool as stated in the prerequirements.

To follow this guide, you will need the following:

  • Raspberry Pi 3 B+ or Raspberry Pi 4
  • a micro SD Card
  • micro SD Card Writer

If you are missing any of these, you can still check How to install other images, such as an emulated Malta with QEMU, or build your own image.


  1. Image setup: Download and flash our pre-compiled Pantavisor image on a micro SD card.
  2. First boot: Insert the micro SD card in the board slot and boot it up.
  3. Discover your device: Discover your running pantavisor device in the Pantahub interfaces.

After this, you will be able to remotely manage your newly claimed device using Pantahub. Check out our how-to guide on maintaining your device for further instructions on how to develop and deploy software on your product.
