I’ve got back into LoraWAN after a few years (work and all)-and with the lockdown here in the UK, and Xmas, seems the perfect opportunity to kick on
I have 2 gateways, both based on Raspberry Pi’s, using the Uptronics HAT-single channel, but I’m starting small-I also have a node, again a Pi, with the Dragino Lora/GPS HAT-simply broadcasting the GPS co-ordinates.All are working on the TTN console (I had a lot of help from the community a few years back)
I’d now like to build a not for profit small network in the local town, using off the shelf sensors, just to see what info I can get back, the range of the radios, info on water levels etc.
Here’s my question-how best to manage and visualise this? Would I use the likes of AWS IoT-or is that OTT. Or do I try something like this?
I come from an IP background, strong in monitoring-and I’d like something where I can easily see the health, status and info on both the gateways and end sensors-happy to try and build my own, or have it hosted by someone else (but not too expensive!)
Ideas welcome please
