What is LoRaWAN™
LoRaWAN™ stands for Long Range Wide Area Network. It allows a GPS Tracker or IoT sensor 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.
Battery life up to, and beyond 10 years depending on IoT sensor and design.
Affordable LoRaWAN™ Solutions
Developing IoT 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. GridLocate makes LoRaWAN™ prototyping easy. Contact us to discuss your requirements, for a friendly chat.
LT100 – LoRa® GPS Tracker with Panic Button
The LT100E is a solid robust GPS Tracker designed for the outdoors. Particularly suited to trekking, construction and remote working. It includes a rugged SOS Panic Button when you need help.
zTrack: IP68 GPS Trackers
We stock a range of pre-configured LoRa® GPS Tracking solutions. Our zTrack-Mini is IP68 waterproof with a battery-life of 28 days. We also offer a zTrack-Midi with up to 30 days battery.
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 nearly 2 years, it a cost-effective 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™ Reed Sensor (Door)
Our LoRa® Reed Sensor is one of two options for monitoring the opening and closing of doors, windows, gates and access areas. We also offer a wireless accelerometer based solution. Contact us to find out more.
LoRaWAN™ Water Sensor
Currently a prototype solution, our water sensor is ideally suited to projects where you need to monitor for indoor floods or leaks. Examples include bathrooms, leaks from pipes and washing machine failures.
LoRaWAN™ PIR Detector
Our manufacturers have combined a PIR with LoRa® to deliver one of the first available LoRa® PIR detectors. Combined with other LoRa® sensors, this enables our clients to offer full security systems at an affordable price.
LoRaWAN™ Power Relay
LoRaWAN allows uplink and downlink commands. The LoRaWAN Power Relay is an example module that can be used in interactive LoRaWAN solutions.
All our devices communicate using the LoRa®protocol. We have tested a number of gateways, and recommend the Laird Sentrius for it’s reliability and ease-of-use.
LoRa™ Single Channel Gateway
LoRaWAN dictates that gateways and end-points work across multiple channels. However, for testing purposes, and small-scale deployments, we resell the LG01 Single Channel Gateway. Available for under $100, this is the ideal solution for home users.
