Why did we undertake this project?

Having worked with multiple IoT kits such as Particle, Arduino, and Pycom, we found out that creating a simple cellular-connected IoT product involves a number of cumbersome steps.

These are just some of the roadblocks we identified to creating a cellular based IoT platform:

  • additional components are required, such as a cellular module and GPS module
  • user must purchase any necessary sensors
  • user must purchase a data plan for cellular connectivity
  • there may be necessary development of essential firmware and drivers for integrating all components
  • cellular devices typically drain batteries very quickly
  • these roadblocks all require additional time to get everything working together

To reduce these unnecessary barriers, we designed Conexio Stratus: a tiny yet powerful cellular-connected IoT kit where all the essential electronic components and modules are tightly integrated into a small footprint.

To help mitigate the excessive power consumption of cellular devices, we equipped Conexio Stratus with built-in energy harvesting capabilities for autonomous operation. We then went a step further and designed a versatile sensor shield, allowing users to connect a large ecosystem of sensor and actuator modules via standard interfaces with ease. Then, we bundled the complete project into our open-source software with out-of-the-box cellular IoT connectivity so that users can get their IoT projects connected and working in no time.

Please check out our crowdfunding page at Crowd Supply to learn more and to pre-order your very own Conexio Stratus kit.

We also welcome questions and discussion in the Conexio Discord Channel.

With greetings and gratitude, Team Conexio
