Dryad is well suited for situations where you are lacking data and or on the lookout for more interesting datasets to work with. It is also easy to read about how the authors collected the data and even provides a link to email them in case you need more information.

Alternatives Considered
Dryad Networks GmbH
The website isn't as clean as that for Dryad and there seems to be less support for the end-user. However, it appears that they also have a large number of data repositories and have backing from many well-known universities. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference and likability.

I have used other IoT Development Modules like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and others. Most of all starter kit doesn't come with WiFi or Cellular built-in. Arduino is a basic module where you have to add WiFi or Cellular manually in it. Raspberry Pi has WiFi but it cannot be used for small or medium use cases, it can be used in advanced and complex systems building and it is costlier.
