LoRa® Single Channel Gateway

Our GridLocate Single channel LoRa® Gateway is based on the LG01 from Dragino.   It’s a cost-effective LoRa® gateway for home and office use providing indoor coverage of up to 200 meters.  This Gateway is designed to work with our GPS Tracker and IoT-Sensors, with minimal configuration and setup.

Installation:

The LG01 LoRa® Single Channel Gateway is designed to connect to your existing internet via either Ethernet or WIFI.  Simply connect via Ethernet, login and choose the WIFI network you wish to connect to.  Once completed, choose your preferred LoRaWAN™ network.  Our devices come pre-configured for the TTN (The Things Network) but it’s possible to reconfigure for other networks.

Understanding LoRa vs LoRaWAN gateways

This gateway incorporates LoRa® technology but is not LoRaWAN™ compatible.  What does this mean?  All our devices are LoRa® compliant and compatible. However, the specific LoRaWAN™ specifications state that a gateway must be capable of operating across multiple (8+ ) frequency channels.  This ensures that devices and gateways are able to ‘navigate’ around interference to find the best channel for communication.   A single channel gateway typically operates on just 1 or 2 channels.   As such, it can be manufactured to be significantly cheaper.   A Single Channel Gateway is a perfectly acceptable and very affordable IoT solution for our GridLocate GPS Trackers and LoRa® Sensors.    If you require further information, please contact us at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to answer your call.

GridLocate Single Channel – Use Cases

We sell this Gateway as a cost-effective solution for homes.  Typical use cases:

  • Home installation for smart-home sensors such as security door sensors, PIR detectors, smoke and temperature sensors
  • Office Installation for localized indoor IOT solutions
  • Prototype work.

Multi-Channel Gateways

LoRa® Single Channel Gateway Design Specs: 

The LG01 Single Channel Gateway is an open source single channel LoRa®Gateway. It lets you bridge LoRa® wireless network to an IP network via WiFi, Ethernet, 3G or 4G cellular. The LoRa® wireless allows users to send data and reach extremely long ranges at low data-rates.It provides ultra-long range spread spectrum communication and high interference immunity.

LG01 has WiFi interface, Ethernet port, and USB host port. These Interfaces provide flexible methods for users to connect their sensor networks to the Internet.

LG01 runs Open Source OpenWrt system, users are free to modify the source file or compile the system to support their customized applications.

About GridLocate Ltd:

This device communicates with our GridLocate Platform.  Find out more here: IoT Platform

Our range of IoT Sensors requires the devices to be located within the range of a LoRaWAN™network, a low-power Wide Area Network created by installing one or more LoRaWAN™gateways with aerials.  A single LoRaWAN™ gateway provides coverage up to 15km line-of-sight, and several kilometers in urban areas. Whilst LoRa® gateways are available for under $300, you may find that The Things Network (www.thethingsnetwork.com) or other providers already have coverage in your area.
