rating Read the 4 reviews
Average rating: 5/5 Number of reviews: 4

The Sensecap M1 hotspot makes it possible to deploy a Helium network access point, for connected objects operating on the ISM LoRa EU868 band in Europe, and at the same time, to mine HNT cryptocurrency!

Includes $40 for the first registration of the miner on the Helium blockchain and its first location (the cost of changing the location of the hotspot is $10, to be paid in HNT crypto).

This equipment is guaranteed for 1 year (see conditions below). There no 14-day return possible for hotspot already declared on the Helium network, the equipment being then considered as personalized by the user and impossible to resell as is.

Supplied with: 1 Sensecap M1 2GB hotspot, 1 868 MHz 2.8dBi antenna, 1 220V power supply / 5V USB, 1 quick start guide in english (or to download below).

What type of antenna and connectors for SenseCAP?

To obtain the best possible performance depending on the location of your installation of the Helium M1 miner, it is recommended to put an antenna installed outdoors, as high and unobstructed as possible over 360°.

The use of an antenna actually tuned to the frequency band used by the Helium network is also recommended, such as our antenna model tuned to 868-869MHz of 4dBi . This antenna is with a female N connector.

The SenseCAP M1 hotspot is equipped with a female RP-SMA connector, not to be confused with an SMA connector. That of the M1 is an RP-SMA (Reverse SMA), that is to say that the central pin is reversed compared to the classic SMA connectors. You must choose a male RP-SMA connector to be compatible with the SenseCAP.

To connect the recommended antenna directly to the M1 miner, the cable to be used must have a RP-SMA male connector on one side (to go to the M1) and an N Male connector on the other (to go on the antenna).

We recommend using a KSR400 low-loss coaxial cable (LMR400 equivalent), of the shortest possible length depending on your configuration, such as this one:

* Is 2GB of memory enough to mine?

A hotspot in full activity consumes on average 1GB of RAM memory.

A 4GB or 8GB hotspot will not perform any better than a 2GB hotspot, with the same installation configuration.

The key point is the antenna, its adjustment and clearance.

There is no impact in terms of profitability and ROI between a 2, 4 or 8GB hotspot.

  • From exposure of the equipment to an electrostatic field, for example thunderstorm, lightning
  • From a short circuit, reverse polarity, electric shock
  • The use of equipment outside the specifications and/or frequencies indicated by the manufacturer
  • Damage caused to receivers due to the emission of a signal near it
  • Damage caused to the LoRa transmitter or power amplifier (PA) due to incorrect antenna adjustment (ROS) or use out of band specified by the manufacturer or use without an antenna connected to the miner
  • The total drop or loss of returns and rewards (rewards, withness, crypto HNT)
  • For outdoor use, in a non-ventilated, non-temperate, non-depressurized box
  • A breakdown of the Helium network and/or the blockchain

Also, there no 14-day return possible for hotspot already declared on the Helium network, the equipment being then considered as personalized by the user and impossible to resell as is.

What is the Helium network and its uses?

The Helium network (The People's Network) is a decentralized network for the IoT based on the LoRaWAN and Longfi protocols for the 868-869 MHz frequency band, with the aim of providing global coverage for connected objects and LoRa applications, from access points set up by individuals and companies.

In return for the coverage provided to the Helium network, data transfer, and other criteria, the Sensecap M1 hotspot also allows you to mine HNT cryptocurrency and earn rewards in HNT crypto, which can then be converted in euros, dollars or another crypto-currency.

This new crypto-currency has its own course, different from that of Bitcoin and can be converted into euros or dollars, subject to the FIAT tax of 30%, it is also possible to convert its HNT into another crypto-currency, this times without tax.

The objective of the helium network is to provide an alternative solution to telecom networks, to provide economical LoRa coverage for users to enable them to develop innovative tracking and monitoring solutions around LoRa sensors.

Helium network and coverage map

As of January 2022, there are more than 500,000 HNT hotspots worldwide, the map is available here:
