Measuring Lux with Sixfab Arduino NB-IoT Shield

We are back again with another tutorial on Sixfab Arduino NB-IoT Shield. Previously we have learned how to connect the shield with local server and sent a string value. In this tutorial we are going to learn how we can access the sensor values of the built-in sensors of the shield and send them over local server. To keep it easy we are going to access single sensor which will be ambient light sensor(ALS-PT19). Read More

Getting Started with SIXFAB Arduino NB-IoT Shield

Sixfab Arduino NB-IoT shield is a Narrow-Band IoT(LTE CAT-NB1) shield for Arduino, based on Quectel’s BC95 module. NB-IoT is a Low Power Wide Area(LPWA) technology that is the latest cellular network option for low power connected projects.

This shield has been designed with built-in temperature, humidity, light sensors, 3-axis accelerometer, relay, micro sim card slot and a built-in antenna. If there is a need for long-range, better signal quality, a U.FL antenna receptacle is placed, can be selected over RF Switch by the short-headers easily. Read More
