With this kit, you can measure temperature, humidity, luminosity and pressure. Then the values are sent wirelessly to the LoRa gateway.
You can use community The Things Network to receive the data.

Reading the Data
The data are encoded in the LoRa message. You need to extract the right bits to get the values back. This is explained in the README.md file. You can also use the
decode.py python script in the repository. In the same directory there is also
decode.js which you can use in the TTN backend to decode values and send them for example directly to Ubidots.
You can pass the received HEX string as a parameter for the
