    How long will the sensor node function on the two AAA batteries?  Obviously, how many features we are using and how frequently we are checking each sensor will play into battery life, but are there estimates of battery life for a typical setup?  Thanks!

    Hi Mech1,

    It is possible to get battery life that is on the order of several years.  You will need to design your system carefully and configure your sensors as a sleepy nodes.  At least one device on your network, usually the gateway, will need to be connected to mains power.
