We're happy to announce that we are now selling Nanode RF web-connected emonBase gateways pre-assembled. This makes it even easier and quicker to get started with energy monitoring:
The pre-assembled Nanode RF using surface mount electronics has been designed and assembled in the US by Wicked Devices. The Nanode was originally designed by our friend Ken Boak. Ken has written an interesting blog post giving a brief history of the Nanode.
Nanode was conceived back in the summer of 2010, when I returned from a trip to Shenzhen, China. I was between jobs, and had a bit of time on my hands for tinkering with some new product ideas.Nanode arose out of the need to find a cheaper way of connecting simple open source hardware, such as Arduino to the internet, so that Arduino could be used for a range of sensing and control applications.
