I have bought a Sodaq Gprsbee to add to my mayfly and I’m wondering how its best to use it.
I think Thingspeak is where I want to broadcast my data for now and wonder if you have any sketches for the mayfly that will help me get started.
We have been using a homemade database system that I developed a few years ago, and it’s not ready for widespread release just yet. So in the meantime, you can probably use Thingspeak, but I also know of some people who have successfully used Sparkfun’s data portal (https://data.sparkfun.com/) for streaming Mayfly data from either a wifi bee or a GPRSbee.
Thanks for the link, I was more hoping you could help more with code for making the most of the mayfly when it comes to turning the GPRSbee on off.
I am trying to make the battery measurement code send the data via the GPRSbee.
I want to achieve something along the lines of this.
1. Take a measurement of the battery on A6 and convert it to volts
2. Turn on and initialize a connection using the GPRSbee.
3. Upload the converted measurement via some data portal.
4. Shut down The GPRSbee.
I’m struggling to find a way to make this happen that will compile.
If I work it out I’ll post it but until then any help would be really appreciated.
What version of the GPRSbee do you have? The latest hardware version uses different code commands for toggling it on and off. I’ve successfully used the latest 3 versions of the GPRSbee with the Mayfly so I can send you the appropriate code for your model.
