Open source: "the raspberry PI IoT shield" family - support for LTE / 4 G, 3 G, GPRS, XBee and GPS [Full Guide]

that’s a Kickstarter campaign, which certainly, my opinion is worth a mention. Sixfab has the “raspberry PI IoT shield” announced family and collects funds for it. Total $50,000 should come together and the developers have already almost 43,000. 18 days are still time. With this shields you spendierst your raspberry PI support for 4 G / LTE, 3 G, GSM/GPRS, GPS and XBee.

raspberry PI IoT shield

the thing is however, that there is no goose. There are different shields that extend the PI to different functions. It is not difficult to guess what for example is a 4 G raspberry PI IoT shield . It extends the PI to the 4G-Funktion or a wireless modem. The PI enthusiast already know where I’m going. You can build a portable access point so, do you have a raspberry PI 3 or a USB Wi-FI card.

there are

use cases for it enough. A raspberry PI with mobile Internet access may be a surveillance camera or a motion detector out of Wi-FI range. Or your PI with any sensors collects data and you want to change the configuration. With a 3 g connection, you should not go, but could manage the device from the couch.

the “raspberry PI IoT shield” family is of course with focus on the IoT (Internet of things / Internet of things) developed. The PI network and reach from anywhere or places. That sounds great, but you have to keep increasing the security in mind. The PI is exposed, pi / raspberry (default login) is more catastrophic. On your home network that’s matter, but…

a raspberry PI is IoT shield with the types A +, 2, 3 and zero compatible. Both hardware and software are open source. You can find the sources to do this github . Is A in the image below, which must be A + but. The A has no 40 GPIO pins. The prices vary. A 4 G / LTE shield there are from $ 99 and you get a XBee shield from $ 19. Who scrolls down 950 US dollars, can mix the shields are at your whim – until the appropriate price is of course reached.

as I said the kick start campaign runs 18 days. There is also more information at . Here, for example, the 4 G / LTE shield is explained.

for what for a project could you imagine, to use a raspberry PI IoT shield? For me, these trigger the a certain will have reflex Add-ons anyway.

  1. Hello,nice blog... password is a default access point that is factory set on some of the popular router models. Mainstream router manufacturers like Linksys, D-link, Belkin etc use as their default router admin pages. For that matter, the whole 192.168.1.x series is IANA reserved for logging in home networks.

  2. IP address is usually used for private networking. Moreover, the most of the router manufacturers use this IP version 4 address in as default gateway address for their routers.

  3. We reviewed hundreds of LED grow lights available on the market as of April 2019 and created a simple list to help you pick the best LED lamp for your plant grow. Each lamp was evaluated across a variety of factors: cost, wattage, yield, durability, spectrum and more, and these lights are truly the best options out there.
