M2M (Machine to Machine) is a concept based on the exchange of information between two machines or devices, allowing us to automate processes and generate telemetry projects, location, security systems, among others.
Using your Arduino Shield who have a range of projects that can develop transmit sensor information and the location of these to a server or smartphone, and also transfer information between two of these systems.
This card has a GPRS / GSM module that can deliver and receive information via wireless connectivity, such as text messages, phone calls and data to a server.
The M2M Shield also has a GPS module with which you can acquire satellite data (latitude, longitude, date, time and other parameters) and a micro SD socket for storage of various frames captured by the GPS module, as well as can store data of various kinds, such as sensor information, connectivity, etc. all thanks to the merger between your Arduino Shield and M2M.
By merely adding a battery without the need to maintain a computer connected to the module, you will have a small receiver and transmitter low-cost data center.
With over your Arduino Shield M2M you can spend from serial communication GPRS / GMS, using pins 2 and 3, as well as the acquisition of information via GPS through serial communication via pins 8 and 9. The micro SD handled through the SPI protocol with the pin 6 Enable (CS).
It has a socket for a stack of 12mm, which keeps the GPS module configuration.
Remember to use a micro SIM card with balance available (to do the M2M Shield has a micro SIM socket).
Note: This product requires 2 Stackables 6-pin and 2 Stackables 8-pin for use with Arduino.
Note: Ask us for our multi carrier (Entel/Telefonica) SIM cards through our contact section. We have special data plans for IoT/M2M devices.
This card is compatible with our web platform, where you can report the value of your sensors together with Arduino. For more information click here.
