How does it work?
The vibration monitoring works in such a way that we sample vibration each second, we count 0 and 1 within 255 seconds and form a value of one byte. We combine 10 bytes together into one Sigfox message. So we send a message every 255×10 seconds that are each 42.5 minutes. In case there is no vibration (e.g. during the night) we don’t send any message in order to save Sigfox messages and battery life. We can say precisely how many seconds the machine was working and the lowest “resolution” in this case is 255 secs. The sensing period can be shortened or prolonged via downlink for different use cases.
4 reasons why coffee machine monitoring is a great business case:
Battery life with different versions of SimplePack
SimplePack 3.0 Plus Advanced Edition we are aiming at ~ 5 years battery life
How else can the "Monitor me" mode can be used?
This ‘Monitor me’ mode can be used for office chair monitoring, fridge compressor monitoring, any engine monitoring. The sampling intervals can be shortened or prolonged very simply by downlink
