The creative team of developers at Pi Supply has once again taken to Kickstarter to launch their new Raspberry Pi Internet of Things IoT board the LoRa Gateway. Designed to provide an easy way to add LoRa connectivity to your project, by providing a more accessible and hackable add-on for your favourite single board mini PC or microcontroller such as the Raspberry Pi, Arduino or Micro:Bit. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the range of three Internet of Things boards developed by Pi Supply and this week launched via Kickstarter with the aim of raising £25,000 to make the jump into production.
Pledges are available from £25 for the early bird IoT LoRa Node and the systems are available in two different frequency variations offering both 868 MHz and 915 MHz depending on your needs and requirements. The LoRa Gateway in a LoRaWAN Network which is setup to primarily receive packets from LoRa Nodes and bridge them to a LoRaWAN Network.
For those not familiar with LoRa “its a revolutionary new method of sending small amounts of data over very long distances using long range radio and low power. It’s designed for the Internet of Things (IoT) so it’s perfect for communicating with sensors such as weather monitoring, air quality, smart homes etc.” Features of the Raspberry Pi Internet of Things LoRa HAT include :
– Low power consumption
– Fully soldered and assembled.
– Plug onto your Raspberry Pi, install our software and you’re ready to go! No waiting for software compiling. HAT form factor means that it is more compact than other solutions on the market
– Industrial standard reliability
– Suitable for low power wireless sensor network applications such as irrigation systems, smart metering, smart cities, home automation etc.
– Real time monitoring
