The Seeed Studio SenseCAP M1 is a high-performing, ready-to-use LoRaWAN gateway for indoor use, connected to the Helium LongFi Network. This helium miner hotspot is based on Raspberry Pi 4 and embedded with a WM1302/WM1303 (Semtech SX1302/SX1303) LoRa concentrator. It provides built-in BLE, which helps you set up the device easily in a few simple steps. The gateway supports connectivity to the internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
This amazing LoRaWAN gateway lets you connect to The People’s Network within a few simple steps and helps you build various LoRa applications at low costs.
The gateway provides up to 10+ miles of wireless network coverage and data transmission capacity for LoRa/LoRaWAN devices. It enables you to join and contribute to the infrastructure of The People’s Network while enjoying the benefits of the Helium community.
This SenseCAP M1 helium compatible gateway allows the opportunity to connect to the People’s Network. In return for hosting hotspots, you will have the chance (NB: we cannot guarantee that you will) to earn HNT cryptocurrency (Helium coins/tokens).
Being a LoRaWAN gateway that ensures powerful and stable performance, SenseCAP M1 has a Raspberry Pi 4 (2G/4G/8G RAM) at its base, embedded with a WM1302/WM1303 (Semtech SX1302/SX1303) LoRa concentrator. It allows up to 10+ miles of long-range coverage and low-power consumption, just as the electricity consumption of an ordinary light bulb.
Rest assured that this Seeed Studio SenseCAP M1 gateway benefits from high communication security, thanks to its built-in ECC608 crypto chip, embedded for highly secure authentication to safeguard your device effectively from any critical security issues.
SenseCAP M1 provides operating system OTA and Docker-based software OTA to enable automatic online upgrades without any activation or monitoring operation. Coming with a 64G MicroSD card, it also fulfils the memory requirement of a potential upgrade.
The SenceCAP M1 gateway includes a built-in mature mechanism for remote diagnosis, enabling online user support for any possible queries and troubleshooting regarding the SenseCAP M1 on your request.
SenseCAP M1 comes with a fantastic cooling solution. The gateway features a heatsink and a cooling fan in the aluminium enclosure, enabling it to automatically manage temperature even in harsh environments, ensuring long-term and stable operation.
SenseCAP M1 is a convenient ready-to-use gateway that can be easily installed in a few simple steps. You can place the SenseCAP M1 next to a window for great outdoor coverage or fix it on the wall. It is also recommended to set gateways 350-400 meters away from each other to broaden the network coverage and achieve more gains.
As a Helium compatible gateway with built-in Bluetooth, you can easily set up the SenseCAP M1 with the Helium App on your smartphone in minutes by following 6 simple steps (see detailed instructions on the SenseCAP M1 Wiki Page). SenseCAP M1 supports both WiFi and Ethernet connection to the internet.
