A ready-to-use ‘LoRaWAN-in-a-box’ combines Seeed Studio’s industrial-grade LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) IoT sensors and gateways with Machinechat JEDI Pro Seeed Studio Edition software. This allows rapid IoT deployments and enhanced security features that give users complete control over device data, ultimately saving time and reducing technical complexity and costs.

“For more than 13 years, Seeed Studio has been at the forefront of introducing innovative IoT enablement solutions,” said Eric Pan, CEO of Seeed Studio. “By bundling our award-winning SenseCAP LoRaWAN hardware solutions with Machinechat’s innovative and easy-to-use software, Digi-Key customers worldwide will be able to build and deploy robust, private LoRa IoT deployments in days versus weeks.”

“Machinechat is thrilled to be part of this partnership with Digi-Key Electronics, a worldwide leader in offering the best of breed and innovative technologies for IoT, and Seeed Studio, a global leader in IoT enablement hardware,” said Sanjeev Datla, CEO of Machinechat. “Our combined private LoRaWAN-in-a-Box solutions enable systems integrators and enterprise IT teams to rapidly transform their ideas into transformational IoT digital projects.”

Digi-Key is the exclusive distributor of the combination which is aimed at smart agriculture and precision farming projects. 

“Digi-Key is proud to be the exclusive global source for these turnkey, industry-first LoRaWAN solutions,” said Robbie Paul, director of IoT business solutions at Digi-Key. “Wireless connectivity technologies like LoRaWAN are leading the way for mass adoption of IoT, and we are excited to inspire developers and systems integrators around the world with many new possibilities available to them with these solutions.”

Designed for commercial IoT applications, including smart agriculture, precision farming, and smart city use cases, SenseCAP’s industrial-grade LoRaWAN sensors, data logger, and gateway solutions are designed for rapid installation and deployment.

The kit includes support for LoRaWAN protocol Class A with a 10km line of sight range in multiple ISM bands: EU868, US915, AU915, AS923. There is support for Ethernet backhaul with optional cellular connectivity.

The box has industrial grade protection with an IP66 enclosure suitable for outdoor applications and able to operate in temperatures from -40℃ to +70℃ (up to 85℃ for SenseCAP sensors) and a sensor battery life of 3+ years.

Machinechat’s JEDI Pro Seeed Studio Edition is the industry’s most affordable IoT data monitoring and visualization software. Designed specifically for commercial IoT deployments, Machinechat JEDI Pro Seeed Studio Edition features include taking data from Seeed Studio’s SenseCAP LoRa sensors using the integrated Seeed Studio data collector (Chirpstack installation required) or from virtually any device or sensor using integrated HTTP API server, TCP server and MQTT broker.

Dashboards can be configured to visualize real time and historical data with line, area, tile, radial and data grid charts and data monitored using integrated rules engine to trigger email notifications, SMS or execute external scripts.

A virtual data sensor allows developers and integrators to simulate project deployment scenarios with a low code focus on configuring, not coding. A single application binary runs as a service with integrated database and managed local data storage and there is a modern browser-based user interface with SSL support and role-based user management
