This page provides review of the USB versions with JemRF IOT Gateway.

Introduction of USB IOT Gateway

With the JemRF USB IOT Gateway you can run your data collection on a Windows Laptop or Linux computer. The USB IOT Gateway can run the same Python 3 code on windows that run on the Raspberry Pi and the Orange Pi.
The only adjustments are selecting the serial port from Linux /dev/serialx format to Windows Comx format.

The default address for the USB IOT Gateway is 02, so it can run along side the RPI or Orange PI gateway which is at the default address of 01.

Using a Pi computer

Running the JemRF Applications is the same as configuring a new Raspberry or Orange Pi. Those instructions are at: for the Raspberry PI for the Orange PI

Using a Windows 10/11 computer

You will need Python 3 installed. Use Windows Store to install the latest Python 3. After Python 3 is installed, to load the modules needed for JemRF software:

Open Terminal windows and at the command prompt

  1. pip3 install pyserial numpy
  2. winget install –id Git.Git -e –source winget

After completing these steps, the PC will be ready to install the JemRF Projects applications.

To install the JemRF Applications:

  1. mkdir \pep
  2. cd \pep
  3. wget -O
  4. Expand-Archive .
  5. git clone

With Python 3 installed to start Python you can use python3 or just enter python.

Almost there, to run the JemRF/PrivateEyePi application on the PC will only require two changes to the applications:

  1. Edit and change:
  2. /dev/serial0 to comx (Where comx is the USB Com port on your system.)
  3. Edit change:
    • “Import RPi.GPIO as GPIO” to “import gpio as GPIO”

Now and should work. I tested the serial RF monitor:

  1. cd
  2. cd pep
  3. python3 rf_tools/
