Low-Power IoT Remote Sensor
The mcSense420 combines multiple onboard sensors and the long-range mcAir low-power LAN protocol into an affordable, long-lasting, and compact IoT remote sensing device.
The mcSense420 is an affordable, ultra-low-power indoor/outdoor remote sensor that lets you wirelessly collect and deliver data to the cloud. This built to last, pocket-sized Internet of Things device is a fully pre-programmed (and programmable), scalable and manageable solution that lasts for up to 5 years on 2 x AA batteries.
Featuring various onboard sensors the mcSense420 can monitor multiple variables, from anywhere, and deliver that information to the cloud. In addition to the mcSense420’s onboard sensors, this device offers the versatility to interface with practically any 3rd party sensor on the market making it a fully customizable sensor solution. The device is housed in a screw mountable, IP65 rated enclosure making it dust-tight and protected against low-pressure water jets.
The mcSense420 employs the long range mcAir (LPLAN) low-power communication protocol to deliver data to the cloud with a communication range of ~1km+ in optimal conditions.
