UPDATE: Now two models available. SIM5215E for Europe and SIM5215A for US / Canada / Australia.
Waspmote is an open source wireless sensor platform specially focused on the implementation of low consumption modes which allows the sensor nodes ("motes") to be completely autonomous, that is battery powered. Lifetime of Waspmote sensor nodes may go from 1 to 5 years depending on the duty cycle and the radio used.
The new 3G/GPRS module for Waspmote allows sensor networks and M2M devices to connect to the Cloud by using high speed WCDMA cellular networks in the same way as Smartphones do. This makes possible sensor nodes send not only discrete sensor information such as temperature or humidity (which can be encoded using just a single number) but also complex streams of information such as photos and videos. This new feature allows developers the creation of new Smart Security applications.
You will need batteries to use Waspmote as an autonomous device.
Note: This product includes the new generation Waspmote v1.5. If you have previous versions of sensor boards contact our Sales Department for Waspmote 1.2 units. To know more about the Waspmote versions take a look to this document.
