Helium IoT Off Grid — easier than ever
Taking your helium hotspot off grid or outside in general is the next step to a professional deployment with https://www.iotoffgrid.com/ you can do just that.
What is IoT Off Grid?
A US based company out of New Jersey (IoT Off Grid Canada found here), providing standalone systems for advancing your helium hotspot’s installation. These kits are perfect for both adept and new users, coming with everything you need to get started outdoors or off grid. Here are a few of the included items in a basic outdoor install bundle.
- NEMA 1, 2, 4, 4X, 12, 13 and IEC 529 IP65, IP66 certified Enclosure
- TP-Link PoE Splitter
- TP-Link PoE Injector
- Key for locking unit
Is it easy to use/install?
This kit is very user friendly and I will be releasing a video shortly on how to install this kit for a few different hotspots. The best thing about this is it comes with the needed gear to get started with any hotspot, excluding this COTX X-3 unit I recently acquired as it is still using the older Micro-USB. The TP-Link systems do not come with that adapter cable, this adapter to a 5V connection is found easily on amazon. You could also use a USB-C to Micro-USB. I will be using a separate off brand Micro-USB splitter I had laying around to achieve this for the X-3 Unit myself.
