Smartlink LoRa

(5 customer reviews)

LoRa Networking is used for large sites or where the signal strength is intermittent or low.  This is also a great solution for flats in the basement or where the signal strength is hindered as each flats meter will act as a channel for communication between the meter and the cloud.

Instead of each meter working as a direct link to the cloud, this network allows each meter to act as a link, should the signal strength be weak.

Through this technology, greater distances can be achieved and signal boosted.  The system is also cheaper and more reliable.

Description

LoRa (“long range”) radio technology, is intended for reliable communication of small amounts of data over long distances (several kilometers), as well as low power applications.

LoRa is the physical radio layer enabling long-range communication links and tweaks the data into electromagnetic waves. It uses a transmission method called “Chirp Spread Spectrum,” encoding data in frequency-modulated “chirps.” This transmission method has been used in military and space communication for decades.

LoRa can be used for point-to-point communication, and can also be used in a LoRaWAN network which involves communication with a centralized base station.

Mesh networking is a network topology where nodes communicate with one another either directly (if they are in range) or indirectly via intermediate nodes. In fact, the path may involve several intermediate nodes. With mesh networking, LoRa nodes can be spread out across a further distance but can still communicate with one another, as long as there is some connectivity between nodes in the mesh.

Every node can talk to every other node, even though the network is only partially connected.

    This new technology really works ! We are in an area where the signal is not great and we were not sure if we could get a signal for the prepayment side. With LoRa we had no problems, how it works I am not really sure but our tenants are happy they can top up online and we don’t have to worry about issuing cards. Recommend this product.

    Brilliant product. We have a building which has apartments in the basement and the signal is really bad, so I was understandably a bit skeptical about the communication device actually working, but it does ! Really impressed, the product does what is says. Highly recommend. Meters are read every day and top up’s happen without delay.

    Large plot with cabins spread over a wide area. This Lora works. All meters up and running with no probs. Good product.

  4. Dennis Murphy

    Everything is done for you – programming and updates. No hidden fees. Impressive. I recommend.

  5. Harvey J

    Tried it with electric first, really works. Brilliant product. Added water and gas. Water doing as a daily charge, too expensive to change piping. Not loosing money anymore. Gr8t product.
