We're happy to announce that two of them are now available for pre-order (expected to ship in August)! Both shields are manufactured by kippkitts in the USA and come with the following sensors:

  • Air Pressure 
  • Microphone 
  • Light 
  • Motion 
  • Humidity 
  • Temperature
  • Air Quality or RF Energy

The sensor motes can be powered via USB, 9v adapter, or battery. These shields currently ship without a power supply.

We are providing these shields with the thru-hole header for the XBee, and an XBee Series 1 device (we recommend using the Series 1 device for implementation of a simple star network). For a Series 2 device, a gateway is the preferred method of connection. You can learn more about the differences between Series 1 and Series 2 here.
