An edge-computing environmental sensor based on Pycom

Exo Sense Environmental sensor

Exo Sense Py is an indoor environmental sensor with the computing power of the Pycom platform – a MicroPython enabled processor with a wide range of wireless connectivity options: WiFi, Bluetooth, LoRa, Sigfox, LTE-M and NB-IoT.

  • Temperature – Humidity – Pressure
  • Air Quality
  • Ambient Light
  • Environmental Noise
  • Buzzer
  • Digital I/Os
  • I2C – Wiegand – 1-Wire
  • RS-485
  • Optional Motion Detection
  • Optional Earthquake Detection
  • Wall Mount Case
  • CE/FCC/IC Compliant

  • RoHS Compliant

Exo Sense Py is much more than an environmental sensor. Its broad range of sensors, two digital inputs and an open-collector output are routed to the dual-core 32-bit Espressif ESP32 chipset of the Pycom development board. The MicroPython interpreter with interactive REPL lets you develop and deploy your environment data-driven solution in no time.

The embedded wireless interfaces support concurrent short-range (Bluetooth/BLE), local-area networks (Wi-Fi) as well as low-power WAN networks (LoRa, Sigfox, LTE-M and NB-IoT) connectivity. Moreover, an RS-485 bus and dedicated I/O lines enable Exo Sense Py to communicate over standard protocols such as Modbus, I2C, 1-Wire and Wiegand.

Exo Sense Py can be employed for an endless list of applications: indoor environmental monitoring and data gathering, rooms management and access control, alarm reporting, signalling and much more.

On our GitHub repository you will find many open source resources and examples to use with your Exo Sense Py. Remember, since Exo Sense is just an expansion for a standard Pycom board, you don’t need any specific library to work on it; our libraries and examples will just provide you with some handy utilities to speed up your development, including functionalities to read the sensors, Modbus support and much more.
