Data Transmission

Communicating With Other Devices Wired Or Over The Air

Communication between devices is crucial in many use cases, i.e. to transmit sensor data or remote-control devices such as garage doors or electrical outlets.


The most common way today uses wireless technologies such as WiFi, Bluetooth, or dedicated senders and receivers that operate in one of the free and legally usable frequency ranges for Short Range Devices (SRD).


In certain situations, wireless communication may neither be possible nor desireable.

When exceptionally reliable or secure connections are needed, and when the devices are in physical proximity, a wired connection may be the way to go, such as simple serial interfaces or more sophisticated Ethernet network connections that add a device to a LAN.


Please do leave comments below. I am using utteran.ce, an open-source and ad-free light-weight commenting system.

Here is how your comments are stored

Whenever you leave a comment, a new github issue is created on your behalf.

  • All comments become trackable issues in the Github Issues section, and I (and you) can follow up on them.

  • There is no third-party provider, no disrupting ads, and everything remains transparent inside github.

Github Users Yes, Spammers No

To keep spammers out and comments attributable, all you do is log in using your (free) github account and grant the permission to submit issues on your behalf.

If you don’t have a github account yet, go get yourself one - it’s free and simple.

If for any reason you do not feel comfortable with letting the commenting system submit issues for you, then visit Github Issues directly, i.e. by clicking the red button Submit Issue at the bottom of each page, and submit your issue manually. You control everything.


For chit-chat and quick questions, feel free to visit and participate in Discussions. They work much like classic forums or bulletin boards. Just keep in mind: your valued input isn’t equally well trackable there.
