This kit includes:
The Communication Shield allows your Arduino to communicate wirelessly using Sigfox, XBee or RFID modules.
Do the Libelium products include a Sigfox license?
Yes! Now the Sigfox module comes with free connectivity for one year. Check the tutorial for the activation process.
How many licenses do I need to send to the Sigfox Network?
You need at least one license in order to create a Hybrid Network. Remember that the modules come now with free connectivity for the first year so you don't need to acquire any extra license to start working with them.
How do I know if I have coverage in my city?
You can check the coverage map here: http://www.sigfox.com/coverage
We do also recommend to contact the Sigfox Network Operator in each country to ensure availability. Complete list of SNO's is included in the link above.
UPDATE: The Sigfox module comes now with free connectivity for one year!
Libelium has added Sigfox wireless connectivity to its portfolio of Waspmote OEM and Plug & Sense! sensor devices and at the same time has make it available for the main Maker platfoms: Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
The Libelium Sigfox module has been certified as â€śSigfox Ready Class 0â€ť the designation reserved for maximum range devices on Sigfox Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks. This means we can work with our favorite development platform as â€śSigfox Readyâ€ť when using it in our projects.
The Arduino XBee shield allows your Arduino board to communicate wirelessly using Zigbee. It was developed in collaboration with Arduino. This documentation describes the use of the shield with the XBee module.
It is also compatible with Raspberry Pi using the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge.
If you are interested in Internet of Things (IoT) or M2M projects check our open source sensor platform Waspmote which counts with more than 100 sensors available to use 'off the shelf', a complete API with hundreds of ready to use codes and a low consumption mode of just 0.7µA to ensure years of battery life.
