Here we take a look at the Moonraker Firespot. An MMDVM Digital Hotspot that uses an Orange Pi in replacement for the hard to get hold of, Raspberry Pi.
What is great about the FireSpot, is that it can be used wirelessly, but also can be plugged directly into your router via ethernet cable giving it a very reliable and stable connection to the digital platform. The faster quad core processor gives a quicker boot up time compared to the common range of hot spots available.
It comes complete in a sturdy 3d printed box and is powered via a micro-USB cable.
The FireSpot comes preinstalled. The underlying Host software components are easy to configure using the PI-Star dashboard. just hook it up to your router (preferred option) for first setup, enter your details wireless SSID and password, reboot and away you go.
