Send data asynchronously from low power sensors thanks to Beaming
02 December 2020
To use the Beaming feature you have to use Aggregating repeaters such as these power socket and soffit repeaters from MICRORISC, a member of the IQRF Alliance. The Aggregating repeaters provide not only a common routing but additionally concurrently serve as an interface to collect and forward data from Beaming sensors.
A Beaming sensor, once bonded, works in Offline mode. It is sleeping all the time and periodically or on some event asynchronously sends data to all Aggregating repeaters always store the last received data from every Beaming sensor into the buffer and automatically clear it after reading it out. The data can be read out synchronously by the Coordinator using the Offline FRC. The Offline FRC is an analogy to the common FRC but skips the individual phase (phase 2 in FRC animation) withing FRC response.
These are the first Beaming sensors currently available:
