What is LoRaWAN™
LoRaWAN™ stands for Long Range Wide Area Network. It allows IoT sensors and GPS Trackers to communicate over large distances with minimal battery use. Compared to Bluetooth (30meters) or WiFi (100m), LoRaWAN™ provides coverage up to 30km line-of-sight from one gateway. It’s equally good operating in warehouses and factories. LoRaWAN™ devices are typically cheaper and have longer battery life than 3G, or other Radio-based solutions.
LoRaWAN™ is being rolled out to major cities across the world thanks to TTN, LORIOT and other providers. If coverage isn’t available in your area, we sell routers starting at just €300.
If an existing LoRaWAN™ network isn’t available, or you want a private network for your use-case, we offer advice and gateways to create your own network. Prices start at just €300.
Affordable LoRaWAN™ Solutions
Developing LoRaWAN™ solutions shouldn’t be expensive or complicated. It shouldn’t require an understanding of Linux, Circuit Boards, Nodes and channels in order to implement solutions. 90% of your IoT Solutions already exist, making it both easy and affordable to prototype your idea. Contact us to discuss your use-case and let us help you find the right solution.
LoRaWAN™ Room Sensor (Movement)
A 4 in 1 LoRa® Room sensor: Temperature, Humidity, Light and Motion with up to 10 years battery life. (LoRaWAN™ Certified Product). The Axis360-Room LoRa® sensor combines several sensors allowing remote monitoring of rooms and locations. The integrated motion sensor can provide instant or scheduled notification of movement and changes in light conditions. The Axis360-Room has a range of use-cases including the wellbeing of people, livestock, security and remote environmental monitoring.
LoRaWAN™ Temperature and Humidity Sensor
Designed for indoor use-cases, our temperature and humidity sensor sends readings every 5 minutes to our central server. With a battery life of between 2 and 10 years (depending on frequency), this is a great solution for monitoring temperatures. Previous enquiries for this device include refrigeration monitoring, outbuilding checks and alerting people if an elderly resident’s room temperature has dropped to a dangerous level.
LoRaWAN™ Co2 Monitor
The Axis360-CO2 LoRa® sensor is designed to monitor Carbon Dioxide levels. (LoRaWAN™ Certified Product) Suitable for confined spaces, cellars, boiler rooms (commercial or domestic) and other environments. The Sensor provides frequent sampling every 15 minutes (or as needed) alerting instantly to concerning conditions. Providing immediate notification of risk to health. Battery powered (for up to 10 years), with easy installation, the Axis360-CO2 is an upgraded version of our Axis360-Room sensor. Alongside the CO2 detection, it also senses temperature, humidity, PIR movement and light sensor. The sensor works over the LoRaWAN network for Licence free communication over either private or public LoRaWAN™ networks.
