Siguino is based on an Arduino Pro mini but designed specifically to be low power (to run on batteries only) and with a connection to the cloud via the SigFox network built in by default, including an on board aerial
Built for both hardware and app developers
Hardware DevKit for builders, IFTTT integration for app devs
Start building IoT devices quickly
Creating a new IoT device, from idea to prototype to final product is not as easy as it can be made out to be. We know, we went through the whole process ourselves! In doing so we created the Siguino to make it easier for anyone else to get started. We hope by having the main components we had to breadboard together (Arduino, SigFox chip, Antenna, Battery holder, 4 useful sensors, etc) all on one board it will accelerate the product development of others
The Siguino was designed to help accelerate IoT product development, from our own experiences in trying to take something from concept to finished product. We’ve used many open source building blocks, both software and hardware, and of course the Siguino is also released as open source. The hardware (Schematic & Board) files are all built with Eagle, and the software has all be been built using the Arduino IDE. The hardware and software are available on GitHub.
Easily connect your IoT device with many other Services (Alexa, Gmail, Philips Hue, Nest, etc) via IFTTT. When a message comes in to the Siguino Servers from your device, we forward it on to IFTTT, allowing you to use easy “recipes” for functionality, e.g. “If My Device shows Temperature under 15 degrees, turn on my Nest thermostat”
Software developer with 15 years experience and previously C.T.O. of a financial software company I co-founded. I’ve spent a lot of time building technology, managing teams and creating software. My experience so far is mostly in large data projects or web technology, which is one of the main reasons I wanted to create something hardware-based. I now work as a software consultant and operate Data Dock Consultancy.
Learn from our journey
We started with Breadboards and many different pieces of hardware, from sensors to microprocessors and we ended up with our own custom designed and manufactured PCB. The steps along that journey, and the knowledge gathered during the process are available for all to use, whether through the final open source hardware and software and also through the documentation of that journey both here and on CodeProject
