Unlike all other radio communication chips in the world, the new CC1350 chip from Texas Instruments is able to communicate both with a very long range (so-called sub-GHz meshing) and with nearby smartphones (with Bluetooth beacons).
We at Thingsquare are really excited about this new chip because it makes it possible to do hardware designs with a single chip, yet allow smartphones to find nearby devices while having a long range wireless network. And all this while having a really long battery lifetime – at least that’s what the chip’s specifications promise.
We did a power characterization of the TI CC1350 when running the Thingsquare system. The results are in the powerpoint deck below. This is hard-core tech stuff, so be prepared.
And as always, get in touch with us if you are interested in trying this out yourself!
We are excited to announce the availability of a our IoT Sensortag starter kit, in collaboration with Texas Instruments and Weptech!
This is the world’s first IoT system that combines remote connectivity through IPv6 meshing with proximity detection via Bluetooth beacons.
“The Thingsquare system really shows the benefits of the dual-radio approach taken by the Sensortag hardware.
Thingsquare’s combination of a low-power 6lowpan mesh network with Bluetooth beacons is unique in the market.”
Jarle Boe, development kit manager at Texas Instruments and founder of the Sensortag platform
Push notifications is a powerful tool that lets customers stay in touch with your connected product, because they always have their phone in their pockets.
As a product producer, you can use push notifications to improve your customers’ experience from your product. If something happens, your customer will immediately get notified.
With Thingsquare, push notifications reach far: your customers will get notified even if they are far away from their devices.
Your customers, who all literally always have their smartphones in their pockets, will always have your product with them.
Push Notifications are supported both by the Android and iOS apps – and you can test it right away.
Thingsquare is a software platform that turns a product into a connected product. All you need to do is add a single chip to the hardware inside your product.
But why would you choose to use Thingsquare for your next product? Here are two good reasons for choosing Thingsquare:
Let us explain what we mean.
The first prototype isn’t pretty – first prototypes seldom are – but it does do the trick
A kick-ass demo is essential for every new product. For connected products, a demo is perhaps even more important because connected products break new ground.
Today we’re going to build a prototype of a connected plant monitor for under 100 dollars. It will take only a few minutes to assemble.
Unlike a typical Arduino-style prototype, our prototype has full data history and smartphone app integration from the start, thanks to the Thingsquare IoT platform.
The prototype won’t be as pretty as its original idea, but it will be an actual demo to show to early customers and investors and get that initial traction before even producing a single unit.
