IoT Long Range Wireless Push Notification Dry Contact Transmitter
NCD IoT Wireless push notification transmitters make it easy to receive alerts when doors are opened or buttons are pressed. This IoT long range wireless push notification transmitter includes 2 contact closure inputs, sending a transmission if any state of the inputs change. Receive an alert when a button is pressed, receive another alert when the button is released. This IoT long range wireless push notification device is ideally used in security applications that need a reliable long-range wireless dry contact transmission. Powered by two AA batteries, users can expect to achieve up to 500,000 transmissions or up to 10 years of battery life depending on environmental conditions and the transmission interval required for your application. Optionally, this sensor may be externally powered. This contact closure transmitter will send wireless push notifications over a distance of up to 2 miles using the included antennas (line of sight) or up to 28 miles using high-gain antennas. This wireless push notification transmitter works by sending data as soon as it detects an open or closed contact (any change on input). Additionally, this contact closure transmitter will send periodic data, indicating the input status as well as the battery level, just to let you know it’s alive and well.
We opened the communications protocol so you can integrate wireless transmitters with just about any control system or gateway you could ever imagine. Send data to a PC, a Raspberry Pi, to Microsoft Azure® IoT, or Arduino. Your data belongs to YOU and it’s up to you to decide where you want the data to arrive. Don’t be bogged down by the limitations of proprietary cloud solutions, post the data where you need it most. Speaking of Communications, NCD long-range wireless temperature humidity sensors use the DigiMesh® protocol from Digi.com. DigiMesh® was designed by THE industrial leader in secure wireless communications for industrial applications. DigiMesh® automatically hops data from gateway to gateway until it arrives at the desired destination.
There is no better Long Range Wireless push notification/Dry Contact Sensor on the market today. Nothing compares with the long range, the price, the accuracy, the battery life, or the security features we have to offer.
Receiving Data From IoT Long Range Wireless Push Notification
This device sends data periodically, based on user-preset timing intervals and on state change of the contact closure inputs. Data transmissions include battery level, signal strength, payload, firmware version, sensor type, and device serial number. Please see the Resources section to see detailed information on the data structure of this device. This wireless transmitter needs a receiver. There are many options available for receiving data from NCD transmitters. We highly recommend using our USB Modem (available during purchase) so you can monitor this device and use our LabVIEW software for changing device settings. Using our long-range USB wireless modem, users can expect easy operation over a virtual COM port at 115.2K baud. Optionally, we offer a Wireless receiver that operates over ethernet. Data from NCD sensors will appear over TCP/IP on port 2101. Simply open a TCP/IP socket, port 2101, to the IP address of the Ethernet modem and see your data stream in to your local area network. We take software samples seriously! Be sure to to check out the resources section of our web site to see code samples for Raspberry Pi, Visual Studio, LabVIEW, Arduino, Python, and more.
Now Supporting Microsoft Azure® IoT
We’ve been working with Microsoft engineers to post data from our sensors to Azure®. If you need help integrating this sensor into Azure®, please let us know and we will work with you to get you connected!
900HP-S3B Industrial Wireless Mesh
Long-Range Wireless Mesh networking is our favorite of all wireless communication technologies. This communication module will hop data from one location to another to reach its intended destination. Data hopping is a integrated feature of this communication technology, users do not need to do anything other than make sure wireless modules stay within hopping range of each other. We use the Digi 900HP-S3B module in our products, as this is the best the industry has to offer. With a 2 mile range between modules and up to 8 hops, it is possible to cover 16 miles of wireless territory using this technology. Using high-gain antennas, this module is capable of communicating to a remote module up to 28 miles away.
