Sensor Probes:

Waspmote Plug & Sense! sensors

Change sensor probes in just seconds

Sensor probes can be attached easily by just screwing them into the bottom sockets. This allows you to add new sensing capabilities to existing networks in just minutes.

In the same way, sensor probes may be easily replaces in order to ensure the lowest maintenance cost of the sensor network.

Solar Powered:

Waspmote Plug & Sense! with Solar Panel

External and internal Solar Panel

Battery can be recharged using the internal or external solar panel options.

The external solar panel is mounted on a 45º holder which ensures the maximum performance of each outdoor installation.

For the internal option, the solar panel is embedded on the front of the enclosure, perfect for use where space is a major challenge.

The rechargeable battery has a load of 6600mAh what ensures non stop working time during the weeks where the sunlight is lower.

A non rechargeable battery option of extreme load (26Ah) is also possible for projects where solar panel can not be used.

Fast Deployment

Waspmote Plug and Sense! counts with holders specially designed for outdoor installations in street-lights and building fronts.

Metal cable ties are provided to easily adjust the node to street light posts.

Installation can be done in minutes as you only need to tie the cables on the enclosure holders and then to the post. Once the node is secured just press the ON button and the node will start automatically to send the data gathered from the sensors to the Gateway.

Radio Technologies:

Waspmote Plug & Sense! radio technologies

High Sensitivity and Trasmission Power

There are multiple radio options in order to communicate the sensor nodes with the Gateway. ZigBee and 802.15.4 are used commonly in order to create tree and start topologies. WiFi can be used to connect with any WiFi AP while the 3G/GPRS radio can be used in order to send the sensor data directly to the Cloud without using an intermediate Gateway.

The complete list of the available radios is:

  • ZigBee (2.4GHz)
  • 802.15.4 (2.4GHz)
  • WiFi (2.4GHz)
  • RF (868MHz)
  • RF (900MHz)
  • 3G/GPRS (Quadband: 850/900/1900/2100)

Program in minutes

Waspmote Plug & Sense! Code Generator

Code Generator

In order to program the nodes an intuitive graphic interface has been developed. Developers just need to fill a web form in order to obtain the complete source code for the sensor nodes. This means the complete program for an specific application can be generated just in minutes.

Check the Code Generator to see how easy it is.

Data to the Cloud


Fully Compatible

The Sensor data gathered by the Waspmote Plug & Sense! nodes is sent to the Cloud by Meshlium, the Gateway router specially designed to connect Waspmote sensor networks to the Internet via Ethernet, WiFi and 3G interfaces.
