Comms Crowdfunding LoRa Networking

New LoRa boards on Kickstarter aim to forge long-range communications links to your Raspberry Pi – Raspberry Pi Pod

Apologies for the dearth of posts recently – work’s been a bit… intense and Pi Wars preparations have taken their toll!

Pi Supply have launched a new Kickstarter campaign for several different types of add-on boards which use LoRa technology. So, what is LoRa?

LoRa is a revolutionary new method of sending small amounts of data over very long distances using long range radio and low power. It’s designed for the Internet of Things (IoT) so it’s perfect for communicating with sensors such as weather monitoring, air quality, smart homes etc.

You will need at least a Gateway and a Node to make the communications link work, and Pi Supply are offering both. The different Node boards work with the Raspberry Pi, micro:bit or Arduino and a Gateway HAT completes the equation as a receiver.

You can view the campaign video below and visit the Kickstarter campaign to pledge to get hold of the board(s).
