I’m very noob to electronics/hardware, have just found Electron and Asset Tracker. Amazing, and thank you! I’ve successfully built the asset tracking system, and have it sending data to my API.
I now want to add another sensor or ten to the Asset Tracker shield, but I’m struggling to understand how it works. A couple of questions for you…
- I want to add the photoresistor, to have similar functionality as it has on a plain vanilla Electron (image below from Electron docs). I’m assuming I need to use my breadboard, but beyond that I can’t get different configurations to work. Does anyone have a photo of an Asset Tracker shield with another sensor connected to it? It would help guide me.
- Is there is a limit to numbers of sensors that I can include (beyond number of pins) - due to power/charge/processing power of the Electron etc? I imagine connecting quite a few sensors (weather, gas, light, noise etc.), but not sure if there are other technical limitations I need to be aware of?
