Video - New Product Discoveries with Randall Restle — Initial State's PiOT Software and VersaSense's MicroPnP Starter Kit
Today I am featuring PiOT (Raspberry Pi Internet of Things) software from Initial State along with the MicroPnP (SmartMesh IP) Starter Kit from VersaSense.
Initial State’s PiOT software is essentially a short-cut for IoT development. This software gives you the capabilities to connect to the internet with your device, collect sensor data, and transfer it to end devices or to a GUI (Graphical User Interface). In conjunction with this software, Digi-Key has put together a list of hardware to help you get started. By following the online tutorial for Initial State’s PiOT software together with Digi-Key’s extensive hardware offering, developing your design and getting connected to the internet has never been easier.
The other product I am excited about is the MicroPnP Starter Kit from VersaSense. This kit comes with the wireless manager, two wireless devices, four plug-and-play peripherals (temperature and humidity, light, passive infrared, and a buzzer actuator), and a programming peripheral for commissioning and updating nodes. Perfect for industrial applications, the SmartMesh IP technology allows these devices to self-form a multi-hop mesh of wireless nodes. This means nodes that need to communicate that are not within range of one another can adapt and self-adjust to use a third, closer node as an intermediary.
Thanks for watching, and as always, let us know if you have questions or comments below.
