Giveaway Week – Particle Mesh IoT Development Kit

Orange Pi Development Boards

In early 2018, Particle introduced three nRF52840 Bluetooth 5 boards, also supporting the company’s Particle Mesh technology, and selling for as low as $9.

Later that year, the company send me what they call Particle Mesh IoT development kit with several of those boards to get started with their mesh networking solution. That’s what I’m offering as the 6th prize of this giveaway week.

With this kit on hand, I wrote a Particle Mesh networking getting started guide showing how to configure the board in Particle.io dashboard, and easily push a new program to multiple Xenon Bluetooth 5 + Mesh boards using an Argon WiFi & Bluetooth 5 + Mesh as the gateway.

I’ll give away the full kit shown in the top picture which includes:

  • The Argon kit (ESP32 WiFi + Bluetooth + Mesh)
  • A Grove and Particle Sensor Kit with various modules and a shield
  • An Adafruit Featherwing OLED display and headers
  • Three Xenon (Bluetooth + Mesh) nodes
  • Featherwing Triplers with headers to be used for prototyping after soldering the board and headers.
  • A Getting Started Card
  • Some stickers

To enter the draw simply leave a comment below. Other rules are as follows:

  • Only one entry per contest. I will filter out entries with the same IP and/or email address.
  • Contests are open for 48 hours starting at 10 am (Bangkok time) every day.
  • Comments will be closed after 48 hours. If comments are open, the contest is still going on.
  • Winners will be selected with random.org and announced in the comments section of each giveaway.
  • I’ll contact the winner by email, and I’ll expect an answer within 24 hours, or I’ll pick another winner.
  • Shipping
    • $18 for registered airmail small packet for oversea shipping payable via PayPal within 48 hours once the contest (for a given product) is complete.
    • If Paypal is not available in your country, you can still play, and I’ll cover the cost of sending the parcel by Sea and Land (SAL) without registration if you win.
  • I’ll post all 7 prizes at the same time, around the 14th of November
  • I’ll make sure we have 7 different winners, so if you have already won a device during this giveaway week, I’ll draw another person.

Good luck!

The developer kit, as shown above, does not appear to be for sale, but you’ll still find all components and similar kits on Particle online store.
