Developers and makers in need of tiny wireless sensors and Bluetooth controllers for their projects, might be interested in the new range that has been unveiled this week called McThings.
McThings have been developed by WestWork Technology Ltd based in Cochrane, Canada and have been designed to provide users with BLE sensors and controllers that area capable of running on a coin cell for years.
The tiny McThings wireless sensors require no programming and can connect to the cloud via a BLE wireless router. Watch the video below to learn more about these new wireless sensors and controllers and how they could enhance your projects.
The creators of the wireless sensors explain a little more “McThings are a collection of devices and software that can be used to measure and control anything and connect to the cloud. The main device is a measure and control board, called a McModule, which is a tiny low-power device that communicates wirelessly to the cloud through a McRouter. McModules are designed to be very small, consume minimal power and therefore run for years on a coin cell.
Our vision is that eventually every house, shop, garage, etc. will have a large number of low-cost, low-power easy to setup sensors and controllers that will improve efficiency, quality of life and minimize power consumption. A router will connect the sensors and controllers to the cloud for full integration with services like Facebook, Twitter, SMS Email, Google+, WeMo devices etc. The McThings infrastructure fulfills this vision with low-power and low-cost modules, full internet connectivity and no programming required.”
The McThings wireless sensors and controllers are currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough funds to them go into mass production.
So if you think the McThings wireless sensors and controllers are something your projects could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help McThings become a reality.
