Elements and Models

Smart Agriculture Xtreme

Smart Agriculture Xtreme is an evolution of our Agriculture line with a new selection of high-end professional sensors. It allows to monitor multiple environmental parameters involving a wide range of applications, from plant growing analysis to weather observation. There are sensors for atmospheric and soil monitoring and plants health. More than 20 sensors can be connected.

Smart Water Xtreme

Smart Water Xtreme includes top market performance sensors from the most prestigious manufacturers for applications such as potable water monitoring, fish farms management, chemical leakage detection, remote measurement of swimming pools and spas, and seawater pollution.

Smart Security

The main applications for this Waspmote Plug & Sense! configuration are perimeter access control, liquid presence detection and doors and windows openings. Besides, a relay system allows this model to interact with external electrical machines.


  • Relay to control external DC units (<30VDC, 1A)
  • IR human presence
  • Hall effect (doors and windows openings)
  • Water presence
  • Liquid level
  • Liquid flow
  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Atmospheric pressure
  • Luminosity (Luxes Accuracy) for Smart Lighting
  • Ultrasound (distance measurement)

4-20 mA Current Loop

The applications for this Plug & Sense! model are focused on adding wireless connectivity to 4-20 mA devices and connecting them to the Cloud.


  • Sensors and instruments
  • Remote transducers
  • Monitoring processes
  • Data transmission in industrial scenarios

The user can choose among a wide variety of standard sensors

Industry 4.0

Plug & Sense! Industry 4.0, can operate in three types of situations. It can be used to connect any sensor to an existing industrial bus; it can also add wireless connectivity to wired buses or even connect industrial devices to the cloud. In any case, the aim is offering extremely flexibility and interoperability to any industry that need to send data from the productive process to the Internet with any wireless connectivity.

Ambient Control

Ambient Control allows to you to create basic environment parameters monitoring using the temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure and luminosity sensors. As well as this, movement and vibrations can be measured by the internal accelerometer.


  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Atmospheric pressure
  • Luminosity (LDR)
  • Luminosity (Luxes Accuracy) for Smart Lighting

Easy configuration

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. Sensor probes can be easily replaced to ensure the lowest maintenance cost of the sensor network. Discover more than 120 Sensors available!

Fast installation

Outdoors materials provided

Waspmote Plug & 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.

Solar powered

External Solar Panel

The battery can be recharged using the external solar panel option (common USB-recharging is of course another option).

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

The rechargeable battery has a capacity of 6600 mA·h, which ensures non-stop operation during the weeks when sunlight is low.

Multiple radio options

High sensitivity and transmission power

There are multiple radio options in order to communicate the sensor nodes with the Gateway. 802.15.4, ZigBee 3, 868 and 900 are commonly used to create local, start topologies. WiFi can be used to connect with any WiFi Access Point. Sigfox and LoRaWAN modules are designed for IoT applications and get very long range links.

Complete list of available radios:

  • 15.4 (2.4 GHz), 2 versions: Europe and world
  • ZigBee 3 (2.4 GHz)
  • RF (868 MHz)
  • RF (900 MHz), 2 versions: US and Brazil
  • WiFi (2.4 GHz)
  • Sigfox, 3 versions: Europe, US and AU / APAC / LATAM
  • LoRaWAN, 6 versions: Europe, US, Australia, India, ASIA-PAC / LATAM and JP / KR

Industrial applications

Connect your industrial devices to Plug & Sense!

Plug & Sense! units can connect with most common industrial communication protocols: RS-485, Modbus, 4-20 mA (current loop) and CAN Bus. This feature opens a wide variety of applications for industrial sensing and automation, military, automobile, vehicle tracking or remote factory management.

There are 3 main uses:

  • Connect any sensor to an existing industrial bus.
  • Add wireless connectivity to wired buses.
  • Connect industrial devices to the Cloud

Worldwide certified
