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.
Waspmote is based on a modular architecture. The idea is to integrate only the modules needed in each device optimizing costs. For this reason all the modules (radios, sensor boards, etc) plug in Waspmote through sockets.
You will need batteries to use Waspmote as an autonomous device.
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.
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.
