SmartSensor Uses LoRa Long Distance Wireless

smartsensorSmartSensor Labs is offering what it describes as “a highly granular energy management solution” that aims to provide device- and plant-level ROI. The press release says that SmartSensor will provide data on precisely how much energy a device is consuming.

The sensor, the release says, is self-powered by the magnetic field and therefore needs no batteries. It uses LoRa, a long-range wireless technology, to communicate. The press release says that LoRa has a far wider range than the communications technologies with which it competes. The short-term goal is to use the technology in private networks in which a single LoRa gateway covers a number of buildings in a campus environment.

Wireless technology – both short- and long-range – will be a key element of building management systems as Internet of Things (IOT) sensors explode in numbers.
