Semtech releases a reference kit to simplify LoRa smart building deployments

Semtech Corporation has released its Smart Building Reference Kit, a collection of tools designed to speed up the development of smart building solutions based on LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol.

The kit allows users to doors and windows, desk and room presence, environmental conditions, and detect water intrusion. It comes with more than 20 sensors, two gateways and a global 4G hotspot for simplified setup. As it is portable the kit allows users to move sensor locations to assess network coverage and can also be used by those looking to provide Internet of Things (IoT) services to demonstrate what can be achieved with this technology to potential clients.

Through developing this self-contained kit, Semtech aims to simplify the testing of LoRa-based products in a smart building environment and continue to support LoRa-based developers and end users.

“Semtech’s Smart Building Reference Kit will empower potential customers to [use] LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol in the development of their own smart building applications,” said Byron BeMiller, director of vertical marketing for smart buildings in Semtech’s wireless and sensing products group. “Customers will be able to quickly create simple smart building networks without needing to have extensive knowledge of IoT technologies. All tools included in the kit rely on readily accessible PC software.”
