Internet of Things Caches (LoRa)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have been thinking of building a new puzzle multi cache using LoRaWAN and Internet of Things, has anyone done anything like this before / are there any things to take into consideration?

 

My idea is to hide push buttons / other sensors for the cachers to play with in IP rated boxes at waypoints along the way which reveal the next location when some condition is met (the button is pressed / the cache is oriented properly / the humidity has increased to a certain level because the cacher has breathed on the sensor etc...) When the cache has entered the correct state a web page the cacher loads on their phone will display the next location's coordinates.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Best Regards,

 

Rob

Would it possibly be easier to use a 16x2 LCD screen to display coordinates rather than a webpage on a phone? Some folks only use GPSrs to cache.

To be precise, this idea could be a Lab Cache, like at a Mega-Event, but it cannot be part of an Adventure Lab.  Under the guidelines for Adventures, no physical objects can be placed in the environment.

 

As a geocache idea, this could work.  Note that the website providing the answer (coordinates) cannot require creation of an account or the provision of personal information.  The cache owner can work out the details with their Reviewer.
