Wake RN2483 from Sleep (LoraWAN) using S...

I finally found some time again to build some LoraWAN Arduino toys for TheThingsNetwork. Basically it’s just a temperature sensor measuring outdoor water temperature and sending it once in a couple of hours via TTN to my Node-Red install. I’ve used the RN2483 library from JP Meijers which works great. I use an Arduino Pro […]

An updated version of Open Monitoring Distribution (OMD) is available at the Bananian site here. They’ve build it for the ARMv7 (BananaPi, Raspberry Pi 2 & 3, OrangePi). I’ve written a complete install manual for version 1.00 which should work for version 1.30 too. Just make sure you use Raspbian Jessie. The related Check_mk_agent files can […]

Build (TTN) LoRaWan Node

Many people want to build a node to test their own TTN (The Things Network) gateway and build new use cases. It’s not that hard to build a node when you know which components to buy. With this post I’ve collected some information which might save you time in getting the things together. Building a […]

LoRaWan Gateway – DIY

If you haven’t heard about the LORA technology and TheThingsNetwork and you are interested in Internet of Things, do some googling 😉 You’ve probably found this article because you are looking for a […]

RF 433Mhz to MQTT Gateway

I’ve upgraded my domotica setup with a Philips Hue. Before I switched the lights using a remote control or via Node-Red and using the cheap 433 Mhz wall outlet switches of Elro, Klik Aan/Klik Uit, Action, and so on. Since the install of the Hue I was missing the remote control to easily switch the […]
