For users looking to get started with Sigfox, the Xkit — available from Glyn, in partnership with local Sigfox operator Thinxtra — has a full suite of features and accessories to empower anyone to set up an IoT solution, even with little hardware experience. Suitable for start-ups, design houses, universities and schools, the kit has everything required to utilise the globally available Sigfox network.

The kit includes Thinxtra Shield with the following embedded on board: temperature, pressure, light, shock and 3D accelerometer sensors; two LEDs; and one push-button. It also features an Arduino Uno R3 board clone (already plugged into the shield); an external male SMA antenna (8.5 cm) for good connectivity; a USB cable (to plug into a Raspberry Pi or PC or use to re-flash the Arduino board); a battery holder (so kit works independently of any computer); and one year’s connectivity to the Sigfox global network.

The Thinxtra Shield can be used with an Arduino Uno R3 board or equivalent (included), an ST Microelectronics Nucleo development board or a Freescale development board. Using its USB port, the shield can also be plugged into a Raspberry Pi, PC or Mac computer.
