This page sums-up the elements needed to build this demo system. Focus was top reliability by means of good sensors, minimal power consumption to have an option for solar power feeding and for minimal costs as well. Parts for the whole system sum up to roughly 1400 € (incl. VAT) or 1000 Euro (w/o solar and uv sensor) plus 10 € mobile communication costs per month, plus service charges for Meteoplug service (starting at 30 € per year). The compilation of needed parts and costs is just for illustration purpose and to give you an idea how a true remote weather station can be setup. smartbedded UG (haftungsbeschränkt) does not sell complete setups like this. If you like to bring an offering like this to your customers, we are happy to support on building blocks like Meteoplug software, Bifferboard setup and "direct connect kit", ingredients you won't get anywhere else.

Hier sind die Bestandteile zum Aufbau des Demo-Systems exemplarisch dargestellt. Der Fokus lag dabei auf hoch-qualitativen Sensoren, geringer Stromaufnahme (um die Option einer Stromversorgung durch Solarpanel zu haben) und natürlich minimalen Kosten. Das Gesamtsystem beläuft sich auf ca. 1400 € (inkl. MwSt) oder 1000 Euro (ohne UV- und Solar-Sensor) plus 10 € monatlich für mobile Kommunikationskosten, plus der Nutzungsgebühren für den Meteoplug-Dienst (ab 30 € pro Jahr). Diese Aufstellung dient lediglich dem Zwecke der Illustration, wie eine echte Remote-Wetterstation aussehen kann. Smartbedded UG (haftungsbeschränkt) liefert keine derartigen Gesamtlösungen, unterstützt aber gerne bei der Auswahl der Komponenten, um Ihren Kunden ein derartige Lösung anbieten zu können. Dies umfasst insbesondere den Meteoplug-Dienst, Bifferboard-Konfiguration und das "direct connect kit", welches anderweitig nicht verfügbar ist.
