Particle Mesh w/o Internet

I am brand new to Particle but have been a hobbyist for many years in the Arduino and Raspberry PI world. My career also takes into utilizing micro controllers. From what I am reading these new Particle board it may be a usable product for an application I am working on.

My question is this:

If the location of the devices that I want to “Mesh” all together and have a central “Monitoring” point, has NO internet capabilities, is Mesh still an option?

To explain further, I want to monitor temperature of 10 objects spread out in a warehouse. I would like to create a centralized point temperature monitoring via a digital display (i.e. - Monitor). This warehouse has no internet connectivity nor cell service.

I see no reason why that couldn’t work, much like the way you can disable connectivity on the current generation of hardware.

I’m guessing that if I get Internet to the warehouse, I can abandoned the central monitor, install one Argon in the Mesh network of Xenon’s and go fully cloud based?

Or for another application, the Boron instead of Argon?

All of the above seems very doable.


Or use a Xenon + Ethernet FeatherWing!


Where do you guys suggest I start reading/researching the extraction/interaction with Particle devices and a Raspberry PI? I placed my order for the a handful of Xenon’s and 1 of each of the Boron & Argon (for fun).

About an hour of Google’foo, im coming up with a lot of the same hits leading me to the following possibly being the best route:

OpenHab running on the Raspberry Pi, use MQTT to link to the Particle’s.
