The Argon is a powerful Wi-Fi enabled development board that can act as either a standalone Wi-Fi endpoint or Wi-Fi enabled gateway for Particle Mesh networks. It is based on the Nordic nRF52840 and has built-in battery charging circuitry so it’s easy to connect a Li-Po and deploy your local network in minutes.

The Argon is great for connecting existing projects to the Particle Device Cloud or as a gateway to connect an entire group of local endpoints.

All Particle Hardware is designed from the ground up to work with the Device Cloud; a powerful set of tools and infrastructure to build, connect, and manage your IoT fleet. The Device Cloud for Particle Mesh is priced by network. All Particle customers get 10 free micro networks using a Wi-Fi or Ethernet gateway. A micro network is defined as a network with 10 total devices and a single gateway. Please refer to our pricing documentation for more information.

BUILDING PARTICLE MESH WITH OPENTHREAD

While planning Particle Mesh, we did so with the view that current IoT networks connect only a portion of the interesting places and spaces that developers want to reach. From remote pipelines without an existing Wi-Fi infrastructure to subterranean syste

PARTICLE MESH 102: SELECTING A ROLE FOR YOUR DEVICE

In a Particle Mesh network, there are three types of roles a device can take: a gateway, a repeater, or an endpoint. A previous post, Particle Mesh 101, introduces the basic concepts of roles but stops short of suggesting which role a particular device in

HOW TO BUILD A WIRELESS MESH NETWORK

In the past, building beyond a single-point connection required high-cost hardware solutions and software implementations to connect the in-between spaces needed for device to device communication. As IoT platforms have matured, they have started to embra
