Hi guys,

What kind of product/device/network would you think best for a network with multiple sensors (10 devices total, very low data rate), with a maximum distance between each of 5km? Ideally, something that could create a mesh network.

Do you think that zigbee modules are the way to go?

Thanks,

David

There are pointy haired bald people.
Time flies when you have a bad prescaler selected.

What about using a mobile phone SMS module - that way the network is already in place, all over the country/world.
Might get expensive though, depending on how often the sensors need to send data...
Just an idea.
