We have gotten dozens of requests over the years for a Seeed Monthly Newsletter. Although we already have a weekly newsletter for product updates, we still need a place to host overall information about what’s happened on a monthly basis. It can offer an efficient and friendly way to get updated for the whole community.
So here it is in all its glory – Seeed Monthly Wrap-ups. Instead of putting it a subscribe-to-read, we’re going to publish them on our blog, keeping it as open and accessible as possible for the whole community. We’ll have Community & Ecosystem, Industrial IoT Solutions, Open Hardware Modules, Customization & Manufacturing, and Seeed Ecosystem as the main sessions to wrap up our updates. These sessions closely correspond with all our core values and businesses.
Now, please enjoy the very first entry of our Monthly Wrap-ups.
01 Community & Ecosystem
This session will embrace some featured projects emerging in the community, and some hottest technical topics at our forum. In this session, we will also include some important updates regarding to corporate news and something excited happens in Shenzhen that we would love to share with you.

Meanwhile in Shenzhen
To celebrate this year’s Earth Day, we at Seeed would love to invite all of you to explore some eco-friendly applications and projects that originated from our community. In this way, you could explore the connections between every one of us and Mother Earth, learn about how open technologies leverage environmental conservation and get inspired for your next #RestoreOurEarth tinkering. ?Learn more.
02 Industrial IoT Solutions
We would love to share our journey of developing and deployment of IIoT solutions, including successful cases, applications, and industry insights.
Successful Case & Applications
Want to know how SenseCAP LoRaWAN wireless sensors and gateways can be applied in food traceability? Seeed works with Baoneng on a “food tracking” project in its storage warehouse to ensure the surrounding environment is suitable for storing products. This project secures the products in the agriculture, food, and health industry with commodity tracking technology, Seeed environmental monitoring end nodes, and the construction of an application system. To provide the optimized environment and best condition for food commodities in its cold storage warehouse, Baoneng applies Seeed environmental monitoring solution in this project. ?️More details: https://lnkd.in/gBtzbPU
How important is the digital transformation in agriculture that is occurring due to IoT and how can we take advantage of this trend to improve farming practices? What is the role of IoT technologies, specifically LPWAN (eg. LoRa) playing in modern and future farming? This piece has all the answers to these questions, with plenty of successful cases in agritech that we did. ?Learn more?https://lnkd.in/gQCq8eY
Preparing for Real Scenarios
The design quality of all SenseCAP IIoT devices is proven through extensive performance tests. We firmly believe that quality control is fundamental for environmental monitoring sensors, and is the necessary final stage before the release of all Seeed products. Here we write a blog to introduce selective performance testings SenseCAP ONE Weather Station went through, and hope it gives you a better understanding of the design quality, structure, and material of SenseCAP ONE and how it is robust enough to stand in a harsh environment. ?Read more: https://lnkd.in/dCZAP4R
