Description
Power Line Communication (PLC) is a technology that exchanges data via the AC electric power line. Spyder is a board that allows you to take advantage of PLC technology in familiar and user-friendly Arduino environment via the SPI interface.
 
Spyder has an Xbee socket on the board that is populated for interface conversions. It supports daughter boards of TTL, RS232, RS485, USB, Ethernet and Zigbee interfaces. You can refer to the datasheet for specific configuration of each interface type.
 
To transmit or receive data from the electric power line, plug the Live Line and Null Line into the screw terminals and power the board up by the JST connecter or power jack. Then you are ready to enjoy developed and invisible electric wiring network and build home automation projects without massive wireless devices.
 
We have two PLC products in stock, McLaren and Spyder. McLaren features up to 5Mbps high speed while Spyder has a wider input voltage range. A careful comparison between them is recommended before purchase.

I bought the black one and the chain is gold color. Not sure of the ink bag.

You need a WiFi Internet connection, and a smartphone or tablet for the Echo App. That's it. It is easy to set up, but it may take you a while to figure out all of the little things that the Echo App can do.

BEWARE this is NOT STEREO and it is NOT MONO. This is only one channel. You will not hear part's of songs (recorded in stereo) that are only played through the left channel. Kinda ridiculous. Still it is a decent sounding speaker.

★★★★★ Great bag
Purchased this for my 23 year old daughter in the butterscotch color. Great versatile color. She loves the size -- perfect for day or going out at night. Chain can be double to shorten for nighttime and left long to wear as a crossbody during the day.
