Kit content

RAKwireless will provide tutorials and example codes using the Arduino IDE. You’ll find more details in the work-in-progress documentation for the WisBlock IoT Starter Kit which should be further updated in the next few weeks.

To enter the draw simply leave a comment with your country and whatever else you’d like to say (no links in the body of the comment). If the country is missing, I’ll consider the entry void. 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, 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. Note that I may not be able to contact people who log in with Facebook, Twitter, or Google, so it’s better to use an email address to enter the draw.
  • Shipping
  • 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 to all!

The WisBlock IoT Starter Kit can also be purchased on RAKwireless’ online store for $189 plus shipping.

  1. Finland. I don’t yet have any RAK Wireless products, but I’ve been aware of the company for a couple of years as I’ve been considering buying one of their LoRa concentrator boards.

  2. Hello from the United States. Looks like a great setup for a remote weather/environment monitoring station.

  3. Hello From India, CNX is my daily new’s reader. Very informative platform.

  4. Greetings from AUSTRIA!
    I have used several RAKwireless products over the years, but I would really love to get my hands on those 😉

  5. Seems interesting, woud donate it to a school if I get it probably (provided I can find one that wants it).

  6. Hi, Stephane from New Zealand, previously from Thailand (Chiang Mai), previously France 🙂

  7. Lora is so interesting. Unregulated and almost undetectable wireless communication. Btw, nice kits…

  8. Greeting from Thailand 🙂 I am interested to try out with LORA WAN for smart farming, especially for large area in the aspect of irrigation planning, weather station. I also wanted to try by integrating these gears, which is written via Arduino, to Home Assistant

  9. From Belgium.
    That looks like a very extensive kit.
    Ideal for experimenting.

  10. Morning from the UK. That ticks multiple boxes, moving forward with NBIOT, using ESP32 for BLE and the bonus nordic BLE as well.

  11. Hi from Bosnia and Herzegovina. I live in an industrial city so I have plans to implement

  12. Hello from USA.
    Awesome giveaway.
    May the odds be in everyone’s favor!
    Good Luck!!

  13. USA! Would be fun to try and integrate the LTE module with Meshtastic+MQTT

  14. Hello I am Ronny from Kenya.
    I would really love to have to those products and tinker with them

  15. Hello from United States. I have been developing a sensor to monitor the water levels for farmers growing rice in California. Getting the data out of the fields is a big problem in our rural community. Would love to apply this kit here!

  16. Hello from United States. I am working on a LoRa sensor to measure the depth of water in our rice fields. It is really hard to get the data out of the fields in our rural community. This kit seems like it can do the job.

  17. Greetings from the Philippines! Would love to try the kit for personal projects.

  18. Hi an IoT student from South Africa🇿🇦 this could be advantageous for me

  19. This would be great fun to develop with! Thanks for the CNX page, it’s my daily read!
