Waspmote SX1272 LoRa module SMA 4.5 dBi - 868 MHz
Tiempo de entrega: 10 a 20 días hábiles.
The SX1272 LoRa module main advantage is the reach increasing but also the cost saving respect other similar modules like XBee 868 or XBee 900. The SX1272 LoRa module uses the SPI bus. The SPI port allows more speed communication and frees up the UART for other purposes like debugging or to connect communication modules.
It comes with a 868 MHz antenna to be used in this frequency.

Waspmote is an open source wireless sensor platform specially focused on the implementation of low consumption modes which allows the sensor nodes ("motes") to be completely autonomous, that is battery powered. Lifetime of Waspmote sensor nodes may go from 1 to 5 years depending on the duty cycle and the radio used.
Waspmote is based on a modular architecture. The idea is to integrate only the modules needed in each device optimizing costs. For this reason all the modules (radios, sensor boards, etc) plug in Waspmote through sockets.
You will need batteries to use Waspmote as an autonomous device.LoRa VS LoRaWAN
- LoRa contains only the link layer protocol and is perfect to be used in P2P communications between nodes. LoRa modules are a little cheaper that the LoRaWAN ones. It works in the 868 and 900MHz bands. Go to the LoRa Tutorial.
- LoRaWAN includes the network layer too so it is possible to send the information to any Base Station already connected to a Cloud platform. LoRaWAN modules may work in the 868/900/433MHz bands. Go to the LoRaWAN Tutorial.
