Orbit 3 temperature and humidity monitoring of ambient climate

Product Description

Orbit 3 is a wireless sensor for ambient temperature and humidity monitoring.

Install the Orbit 3 at a suitable location and it will wirelessly transmit temperature and humidity readings continuously.

The Orbit 3 uses Sigfox, the world’s largest IoT network, which offers a longer range than WiFi and Bluetooth. The data is transmitted to the cloud through nearby Sigfox antennas or gateways.

The real-time data is available in Sensohive App (web portal) and you can access it from anywhere.


Orbit 3 is available in four variants, one that is certified for use in Sigfox RC1 (20124-1), one that is certified for use in Sigfox RC2 (20124-2), and one that is certified for use in Sigfox RC7 (20124-7). The Sigfox RC4 (20124-4) version is available as samples.
