A sample plug n play Maduino solar powered client for my LoRa field gateway projects (see my profile for these). The design goal was a cheap (USD14), small solar powered device with a simple demo sketch that students could use as a basis for their environmental monitoring and SmartAg projects.
In future iterations I'm planning to improve the power consumption, implement basic OTA provisioning, sign the message payloads, encrypt the messages and support in field configuration.
This client uses:
- Maduino 433Mhz or 868MHz
- SeeedStudio Grove-Temperature & Humidity Sensor
- SeeedStudio Grove - 4 pin Male Jumper to Grove 4 pin Conversion Cable
- Solar panel
- LiPo battery
Download the code, then build and deploy to your device. Ensure the case of your sensor identifiers is consistent with the IoT Cloud Service configuration.
Ensure the FieldGatewayAddress, Frequency and FieldGatewaySyncWord match the configuration of your field gateway.
For some application I use screw terminals to make installation easier.
