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, which helps boost an individual meters signal, should that particular signal strength be weak.
Through this technology, greater distances can be achieved and signal boosted. The system is also cheaper and more reliable.
