SenseMote wireless sensors and actuators via Arduino

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

SenseMote is an alternative firmware for the Ciseco XRF CC1110 module. It enables you to build wireless sensors and actuators via an Arduino-like sketch language. I believe that the gateway, the "sensehub", has a lower BOM cost than Nanode or any other open source wireless gateways and has more flexibility...
