SimplePack 2.0 is a universal device for integrators to build many of their IoT solutions upon.
It can be remotely configured for 7 different modes depending on the needs of a particular usage enabling tens of possible business cases.
Press me – ordering, notifying or alerting worldwide (order/panic/remote control button)
Track – location tracking of any movement or impact (luggage, pallet, asset)
Trace – real time journey tracing of a package and any impact
Guard – notification of any movement or bang (door, drawer, car, bike, house)
Put me back – monitor overturn, tilt or displacement of any object (garbage containers, road signs, electricity poles)
Monitor me – monitor run times and level of vibration of any engine or monitor office space usage when put under a chair
Don’t drop me – in case of a major impact during the transportation of goods
25 business use case scenarios are identified and described in detail in this datasheet.
Among the use cases, you can find:
Logistics, including but not limited to parcel or Euro-pallet tracking and tracing
Window, door and staircase monitoring
Office chair monitoring (you can find more about this use case here)
House or facility fire detection
Elderly care – either as an emergency panic button (we’ve written a blog post about this!) or to monitor the movement and the position
And much more
SimplePack is, as the name would suggest, quite simple. It contains an assembly language programmable MCU, an accelerometer, a LED diode, a button, a Sigfox modem, an antenna and non-replaceable, non-rechargeable battery.
Packaged in a nice, small and waterproof case
Plenty of space for a branded sticker or maybe an UV print and of course the two-sided tape which holds the device where it’s needed
Endless possibilities of SimplePack utilization in combination with Sigfox Geolocation
Waterproof through ultrasonic welding and no openings (no official IP rating – however, the manufacturing process is identical to the way the SimplePack 3.0 Plus Full is made – and this device has an official IP68 rating)
Battery type: Primary LiMnO2 (non-rechargeable, non-replaceable), 550 mAh
Longevity in guard mode: 10 years
Minimum number of messages: 4000
Open and documented API (can be found right here)
The 2.0 version also has noticeable improvements over the first one, among them a brighter LED light, a button of higher quality so the clicking is proper, QR code containing the ID and the PAC engraved with laser and much more modes found in the API 5.
Developed and mass-manufactured in the Czech Republic.
