Logging data to Google Sheets through AWS IoT(Lambda)

Introduction In this article we will be logging sensor readings to a Google sheet using an AWS IoT gateway.  It’s interesting to see integration between two Tech giants like these so it should be fun to implement.  This article may be slightly on the advanced side due to account setup and requiring both an AWS account as well as a Google Developer account, however the code writing is minimal and it will be provided in this article. What you’ll need AWS IoT Gateway An AWS Account A Google Developer Account At least one NCD Enterprise Sensor Before we begin First

RS-232 to Wireless Converter Modem Guide

Introduction The NCD RS-232 Wireless Modem is designed to act as a RS-232 communications interface between NCD Wireless Sensors and computers or embedded systems equipped with a RS-232 communications port.  This device acts as a 2-Way converter, making it possible to read and configure sensor settings. The wireless range of the Wireless RS-232 Modem may be up to 2 Miles when using a 900MHz communications technology.  Shorter ranges should be expected for indoor applications and other frequencies.  The 900MHz module is also rated for use up to 28 Miles away when working with high-gain antennas (please contact Digi.com for a
