MySensors is a free, open-source software platform for implementing DIY LPWANs. It manages the wireless connection of up to 254 IoT devices, creating a self-healing mesh network of autonomous nodes. One of the devices acts as a routing node, facilitating Internet access and assigning subnet addresses to the rest of the network.

Supported hardware

MySensors supports the following hardware platforms:

  • ATMega 328P - a single-chip microcontroller created by Atmel.
  • ESP8266 - a Wi-Fi controller with hardware TCP/IP stack created by Espressif Systems.
  • ARM Cortex-M0 - a 32-bit RISC ARM processor designed for microcontroller use.
