As a company that is striving to be ahead of today's technology, we are excited to launch our new data logger that communicates via the Sigfox Network. This device is the first fully integrated solution with built in connectivity and head end visualisation. There are no on-going license fees or data charges, no hidden or further costs for commissioning. As the costs are so low it can also be utilized as a wireless solution, whereby you can have an individual datalogger attached to each meter.
It is a fast and simple installation and can be retrofitted to any meter, from water, Heat and electricity. It can send up to 3 registers every 15 minutes, 6 registers every 30 minutes and 12 registers every hour. So you can have up to 12 x meters (1 parameter per meter) on one device.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects - devices, vehicles, buildings and other items - embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity that enables these objects to collect and exchange data.
Sigfox is an operated telecommunication network, dedicated to the Internet of Things. It is an operated network, meaning you do not have to handle any installation or maintenance operations. Sigfox is seamless and out-of-the box, allowing you to forget about communication and keep focused on the core of your project.
It is a LPWA (Low-Power Wide-Area) network, currently deployed in Western Europe, San Francisco, and with ongoing tests in South America & Asia. The Sigfox communications protocol allows a bidirectional communication, both from & to the device. The communication is always initiated by the device.
The Sigfox network is designed for small messages sent every now and then. It is not appropriate for high-bandwith usages (multimedia, permanent broadcast). Its focus on energy efficiency allows you to build connected devices able to last years on a standard battery.
