Controller based on Open Source Hardware technology and LoRaWAN protocol.

Designed for monitoring, control and automation.

One of the great advantages of LoRa over other protocols such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth is its enormously long range and its low power usage.

The possibility of installing a device with a battery and forgetting about it for 10 years is great, and enables an “equip and forget” approach in your solutions.

What is LoRaWAN?

According to the LoRa Alliance, the LoRaWAN® specification is a Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) networking protocol designed to wirelessly connect battery-powered ‘things’ to the Internet in regional, national or global networks.

It targets key Internet of Things (IoT) requirements such as bi-directional communication, end-to-end security, mobility and localization services.

The battery life of the nodes is very long. A single-sensor device, equipped with LoRa and connected to a 9-volt battery, should last up to 10 years.

Enough to avoid worrying about the equipment for a long time.

LoRa is best applied in applications where the devices:

  • Have no access to electricity

  • Are hard to access physically

  • Are too numerous to be equipped with an expensive cellular subscription

  • Do not need instant feedback

Outline Advantages of the LoRaWAN

It uses 868 MHz/ 915 MHz bands. Available and widely used worldwide.

Wide coverage range: +- 15 kms in open areas and about 5 km in urban areas.

Less power consumption. The battery could last for 10 years.

A LoRa Gateway device should take care of 1000s of end devices or nodes.

It supports bidirectional communication in three different modes.

It also has Built-in support for end-to-end encryption through the AES128 algorithm.
