Depending on location and distance to the gateway there are aerial options available. With direct line-of-sight between sensor and gateway (no obstacles - no trees - no walls - no hills etc) range up to several kilometres is possible.


Marcello (from CQU): I used these sensors extensively in my research work. They use the Silabs SI7051 temperature sensor, a more precise sensor than you will find in most loggers.  I ran the units for over 2 years on a single set of batteries, logging at 15 min intervals. Range depends on level of obstructions (trees, hills), but several kilometers is typical.  The aerial cable extension for the sensor aerial enables it to be mounted above the tree canopy. We use a PVC pipe over a star picket as a mast.


Sorry, there is no current photo of this new version. We will get one up here as soon as possible.
