Capture data from Bluetooth 5 long range sensors and send to the cloud via low-power cellular.
Start your IoT proof-of-concept in minutes with the MG100/BT510/BT610 IoT Starter Kit. The latest IoT connectivity starter kit from Laird Connectivity, a Zephyr Project Silver Member, pairs the Sentrius MG100 and our Bluetooth sensors with Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT software platform to provide an out of the box experience that allows you to visualize your data simply and fast. Included in the kit is an MG100 micro gateway with the Cumulocity IoT firmware already loaded, three BT610 sensors with thermistors, and a BT510 sensor. Also included in the box is a fully functioning Cumulocity IoT implementation from Software AG that includes a free 60-day evaluation period to start your PoC project without needing to integrate anything additional.
Open the box, set-up the hardware, register for your Cumulocity IoT account, then start pulling data from your sensors. That is all that you need to do to get started. The kit is fully scalable to allow reuse of any work done during your evaluation period.
Our starter kit runs on our Zephyr LwM2M application, developed in our partnership with the Zephyr Project, designed to work out-of-the-box to send Bluetooth sensor data up to Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT and quickly start gathering sensor data.
