The world of remote monitoring has taken a significant leap forward with the introduction of Reporter, an innovative sensor device designed to bring efficiency and convenience to diverse monitoring projects.
Combining the power of 4G (NB-IoT and Cat-M) connectivity, a highly flexible sensor compatibility, solar charging capabilities, and GPS tracking, Reporter opens up a realm of possibilities for seamless data streaming and real-time remote monitoring. In this blog, we will explore the features of this cutting-edge device and dive into its potential applications.
Harnessing solar power
One of the standout features of Reporter is its ability to recharge using its own small solar panel. This eco-friendly approach not only eliminates the need for frequent battery replacements but also ensures uninterrupted operation in remote areas where access to traditional power sources may be limited.
The integration of solar charging technology makes Reporter an ideal solution for long-term monitoring projects, enabling sustained data collection and transmission.
Equipped with a built-in GPS tracker, Reporter allows precise geolocation of the monitoring device*. This feature proves invaluable when monitoring projects spread across vast areas or when tracking mobile assets. By leveraging GPS technology, users can easily keep track of their monitoring devices, ensuring accurate data attribution and efficient resource management.

Seamless connectivity and API access
Reporter's triple modem brings unprecedented connectivity options to remote monitoring. Supporting 4G (NB-IoT & Cat-M) and 2G networks, the device can effortlessly stream data to the cloud, from almost anywhere. This wide-ranging connectivity ensures that project data is reliably transmitted, empowering users to monitor and analyze information in real time, leading to more informed decision-making.
Data from Reporter is available in real-time through the Crodeon Dashboard and the Crodeon API. Visit our learning center for more info about this.
Versatile sensor integration
Reporter empowers users with the ability to connect up to four different sensors simultaneously, thanks to its four connectors. The fifth connector is where you plug the grid power adapter or solar panel.
With a wide array of compatible sensors to choose from, users can customize and adapt their monitoring setups based on specific project requirements. Whether you need to monitor temperature, humidity, pressure, or any other parameter, Reporter's pick-and-mix capability ensures optimal flexibility and adaptability for diverse applications.
Alarm notifications for enhanced monitoring
In addition to its exceptional data collection and transmission capabilities, Reporter takes monitoring a step further by enabling users to set customized alarm limits.
Whenever a monitored parameter exceeds the predefined threshold, the device can promptly send out alarm notifications, ensuring timely response and intervention. This feature proves invaluable in critical applications where immediate attention is required to prevent or mitigate potential issues.
Don't miss out on the future
With its 4G & 2G connectivity, solar charging capabilities, versatile sensor integration, GPS tracking, API access and alarm notification system, Reporter sets a new benchmark for remote monitoring devices. This revolutionary IoT solution offers unparalleled flexibility, reliability, and convenience, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of industries and applications.
Whether it's environmental monitoring, infrastructure management, or asset tracking, Reporter empowers users to stay connected, informed, and in control of their projects like never before.
