This is a tutorial made by Seeed Studio. Watch the original video:

What are SenseCAP S210X LoRaWan Sensors

With the IP66 rating, -40 ~ +85C ° operating temperature, and built-in 19Ah high-capacity battery, combined with the device’s low power consumption, the SenseCAP S210X series can operate in harsh outdoor environments for up to 10 years with a range of up to 10km. The built-in Bluetooth facilitates setup and greatly reduces large-scale deployment costs. Users can focus on application development with the easy set-up, and start retrieving data in a few steps. Just install the device, bind it using the QR code and configure the network, then data can be viewed from the SenseCAP portal and SenseCAP Mate APP, which supports popular IoT protocols such as HTTP and MQTT.
