    Frequency Band Support

    SenseCAP M1 has US915/EU868 versions with FCC/CE certificates respectively. It also supports frequency plans including EU868 / US915 / AU915 / KR920/ AS923 without further configuration. Each version has the corresponding antenna and power adapter. You could choose the frequency band version according to your placement region. 

    Communication Security

    For the critical security issue, a built-in ECC608 crypto chip is embedded for highly secure authentication to effectively safeguard your device.

    Automatic Online Updates

    SenseCAP M1 provides operating system OTA and Docker-based software OTA to enable automatic online upgrades, without any activation or monitoring operation. Coming with a 64G MicroSD card, it also fulfills the memory requirement of potential upgrade.

    Handy Setup to Helium Network

    SenseCAP M1 is super convenient to use. You could easily place your SenseCAP M1 next to your windows or fixed on the wall. It is also recommended to set gateways 350-400 meters away from each other to broaden the network coverage and to achieve more gains.

    As a Helium compatible gateway with built-in Bluetooth, you can easily set up the SenseCAP M1 with the Helium App on your smartphone in minutes by following  6 simple steps (see detailed instructions on the SenseCAP M1 Wiki Page). SenseCAP M1  supports both WiFi or Ethernet connection to the internet.
