" That would actually be a very good plan, if you spent the money on a gateway ."
That’s what I meant, my bad.
Like I said, we are mostly in the sensor market, and we basically sell “We have ways to measure water quality plus certain air quality, to levels that are usually lab”
I’d say well more than 1/2 our sales are to people integrating them into their own products.
My side? I developed a simple RPi product to read and display the data, plus send it to MQTT
Now they want me to develop remote sensors to send to MQTT/Our RPi display. TTN? Maybe. Private network? Maybe Receiver that has I2C and ‘looks’ like our sensor? (The RPi is doing it all I2C bus, but the sensors can also do serial) That is probably one of the big goals
Me? I just have to test these, and get some of them working. I have data going from a feather, to a feather, and being displayed (But not I2C).
I think TTN might be a great way, because it is there. I’m seriously considering LoRA (without the WAN) but my personal “OMG Money” (Like I said, I PERSONALLY hate the $$) makes me not really like the idea of 2 feathers.
I’d say half the problem is ME, as an employee not wanting to spend $$ - I know the boss isn’t afraid of it, but I get antsy
