Acquiring various data from a sensor device or an Internet of Things (IoT) device and transferring it to a server for use in analysis has attracted great attention in recent years. However, at present, the environment is still not ready in terms of communication speed and a huge communication fee with respect to the amount of data. A data transfer technique using long-range communication is expected to be one of the solutions to these issues, but there are various standards related to the communication device, and it is required that development follows those standards. This study uses existing conventional Wi-Fi in the short-distance area and a long range communication device for data transmission to a remote place. In this way, the article proses a method that is effective for data transfer, making use of each other’s characteristics. In this research in particular, the character string is transferred to a server installed on a remote place using an ordinary User Datagram Protocol (UDP). The evaluation shows that although it is necessary to consider communication speed and the transmission interval, a general conventional programming method can be used. The study confirms that character strings can be transmitted and received using not only sensor devices but also common smartphones and tablets. Therefore, it is considered that the proposed method can be applied in a wide range of fields, including disaster situations.
