balenaBlocks in-depth: Sensor and Pulse

In this post, we introduce the sensor and pulse blocks, both designed to make it easy to bring data from sensors and other equipment into your projects. We’ll also look at the decisions made during the development of these blocks in order to keep their setup and usage simple,

How balenaSound inspired the audio block

In this blog post, we’ll explain how the audio block came to be. We’ll put on our IoT fleet owner shoes, dive deep into balenaSound’s history, and show you how one of our most popular projects helped build the very first balenaBlock. As you may already know,

Introducing balenaBlocks: jumpstart your IoT app development

Our mission at balena is to “reduce friction for fleet owners and unlock the power of physical computing”-- it’s what guides every balenista’s work. However, there’s still complexity to be found in developing applications, and we’re on our way toward solving this part of the

Receive and store LoRa sensor data from TTN using a Raspberry Pi (part 2)

Back in the first part of this series, we detailed the process of building a simple LoRa-connected weather station to monitor temperature, humidity, and pressure, and send the readings to The Things Network (TTN). In this second part, we’re going to take a look at how you can capture
