The 900MHz Explorer board is an adapter board for the the Intel Edison development board. The Explorer board can communicate over sub 1-GHz frequencies using digital modes, allowing you to collect data from (and control) the wireless devices around you. Since the Edison runs Linux, you can write your RF software in any language you want. Our fully featured Python libraries will get you started quickly, and we support common Open Source rf libraries such as rfcat.
The Explorer board is fully open-source, and we're actively building out our example projects. We're making it easy to connect to the 900MHz devices you already have, like Z-Wave, sub-1GHz Zigbee, and custom protocols.
Use rfcat to detect nearby 868MHz/915MHz devices and interact with them
