Sensor Node

Each Sensor Node consists of the following:

  • Arduino – Programmable Chip that runs the MySensors radio software for communicating with the gateway
  • Sensors – Any sensors or other device such as a motor, relay, or LCD
  • Radio – We are using an NRF24L01 which is an inexpensive, low power radio that transmits over 2.4GHz
  • Power – Either a DC power supply, battery, or solar panel
