Sentrius RG1xx + RS1xx IoT Starter Kit

Under Development


The IoT is all about getting data to the cloud and taking critical actions based on the information in the world around us. Our RG1xx Gateway and RS1xx Sensors make it effortless to prototype your long-range Temperature/Humidity and Open/Closed applications and start gathering meaningful data today.

The kit contains: 

  • 1x Sentrius RG1xx LoRaWAN Gateway + Wi-Fi / Ethernet
  • 1x Sentrius RS1xx Sensor  (featuring Temp/RH + Open/Closed sensing capabilities)
  • Open/Closed cable assembly
  • Our free AWS-based sensor payload decoders, converting binary sensor data into meaningful information
  • Power adapter

The combination makes it easy to gather sensor data and send it as far as 10km in open air to our gateway, where it can be sent to the cloud via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.

The RG1xx included within the Starter Kit is configurable with many popular packet forwarders, such as Semtech Basics Station, UDP forwarder, and compatible with cloud services such as AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN, The Things Network, ChirpStack and Senet.

RS1xx sensors are easy to install, last for years on two AA batteries and are configurable over our mobile application.

As AWS Qualified Devices, the RG1xx and RS1xx are easy to quickly register with AWS IoT Core, eliminating the need to manage a LoRa Network Server and accelerating IoT application development

Can the RS1xx AS923 (455-00063) work with an AU915 gateway which uses overlapping channels to AS923?

No, an RS1xx AS923 sensor will not work with an AU915 gateway because it cannot receive the downlink packets due to differing bandwidth and frequency plans used and therefore will drop off the network.

How many end-devices can a LoRaWAN gateway support?

End-devices do not actually make a connection with a gateway. End-devices broadcast to all gateways within range and the gateway forward packets to a network server if it can hear them. So, a gateway does not have a hard number for supporting devices and it is rather dependent on how much bandwidth a gateway can support. For example, factors such as payload size, interval of each data transmission or data rate being used can affect how much air time is consumed and therefore the gateway processes. Also environment factors should be considered.   

It's normally best to experiment with real devices in actual sites in order to figure out how many devices can transmit data without much data loss, using desired configuration/setup.

What is the temperature range for the RS1xx sensors

While the standard RS1xx (455-0001 for North America) can support down to -40°C and RS1xx external sensor (455-0070 for North America) can support down to -55 °C, typical AA batteries do not perform well at below -25 °C. Industrial grade of AA batteries may support lower temperature but they are significantly more expensive that off the shelf standard AA batteries. 

Can AS923 and AU915 networks coexist in the same area?

Yes, as long as they are operating on different networks such that AS923 sensors talk to the AS923 gateway and vice versa for AU915 devices.
