At CES, Digi International® revealed the Digi XBee Sensor Lab to demonstrate the power of the Digi XBee® 3 Low-Power LTE-M/NB-IoT Global modem paired with the SparkFun® Digi XBee Development Board, Qwiic® ecosystem parts, and Digi Remote Manager®.

The Digi XBee Sensor Lab is a comprehensive demonstration of how to go from sensor to Cloud with Digi XBee 3. The video below walks through each part of the demo, hilighting eight potential applications/use cases including:

  • Noise monitoring and predictive maintenance
  • Actuating
  • Connected agriculture/monitoring irrigation
  • Weight measurement
  • Access control/identification with RFID
  • Asset tracking
  • SMS texting
  • Heart rate monitoring
  • The last couple minutes of the video walks through how this sensor-to-cloud demo actually works.
