Almost everyone has already met with the term IoT, whether consciously or not. It affects almost all fields of life, but it is still very difficult to understand and classify it. It aims to modernize the existing ways of transmitting information with an emphasis on automation and thus make people more comfortable in their daily lives, streamline their work and many other things. It is no wonder that many companies are focusing on this trend at the time of its expansion. But how can we achieve this goal? Where to start?
Everything starts with the right hardware
The first thing to do is select a device that supports and meets the standards of this technology. One of the main building blocks of all wireless communication devices is a module that is designed for wireless communication on the frequency bands defined for IoT technologies. One of these modules is the BGS5 module.
Now it's up to your imagination
Thanks to its price and small size, BGS5 can be implemented in many devices that then can make use of its advantages. This module adds not only cellular connectivity, but also the ability to create your own program using its built-in Java. This little thing alone makes this module an excellent first step into the world of IoT. The module can be programmed as a security feature for your project, a data collector, or it can be used to operate other devices remotely. All this with the ability to connect to the cloud service and be operated from anywhere.
