We are currently taking pre-orders for the Vinduino system.
Vinduino R3 sensor station
The Vinduino R3 sensor station is designed for optimizing agricultural irrigation, aimed at saving up to 25% irrigation water. This station represents the 3rd generation design of our remote sensor platform, and has gone through extensive field trials.
- Open source microcontroller based
- 4 soil moisture sensors included
- Globalsat LM-210 LoRa module for long range
- Digital temperature sensor
- Solar battery charger
- Real time clock for sleep mode power saving and precise irrigation timing
- Load switch for custom actuators or sensors that require electric power
The Vinduino sensor station is designed for continuous unattended operation. It is powered by a small solar panel, and the battery charger maintains a Li-ion battery fully charged, to keep the system working during the night and during periods with dense cloud cover. The battery voltage can be monitored remotely to check battery health.
The station comes assembled, configured, and tested.
The Vinduino sensor station requires a compatible gateway, and is designed for LoRa LAN.
Limited time introduction price: $275.00
Globalsat LD-20H LoRa USB dongle
The FCC approved Globalsat LD-20H LoRa USB dongle allows easy access to LoRa technology. With LoRa wireless communication modules, you can transmit sensor data over multiple miles distance. Module to module communication is possible. LoRa uses license free communication bands.
Together with our example Python script, released on Github, it is easy to make a gateway that transfers Vinduino sensor data to ThingSpeak. The Python gateway program for Vinduino has been tested with Ubuntu Linux, RPI, and MacOS.
With this dongle you can easily turn any old PC or Raspberry Pi into a LoRa IoT gateway.
Antenna included, Raspberry Pi not included.
For initial trials we recommend using MyDevices Cayene, or ThingSpeak, which are license free services for small -non-commercial- users. Customized dashboards are available through our value added partners.
Prices do not include shipping and VAT.
