Sensors Now Available for Sale
When we ran the Data Sensing Lab at San Francisco's Moscone West during Google I/O, we were besieged by requests to buy our sensor shields. 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
- 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.
