LoRa is a wireless technology where low powered devices transmits small packages (0.3kbps - 5.5 kbps) to a receiver over a long distance ranging to several kilometers. LoRaWAN is a communication protocol and architecture on which LoRa operates and manages communcation between gateways and devices.
LoRaWAN is a wireless communication protocol. And has a very large range up to 10Km. With this technology you can cover your entire organisation's area. This is especialy useful in large places like warehouses.
The LoRa based sensors which are connected to the TeckPortal are battery powered. Which allows installation of these devices anywhere irrespective of power source. Additionally, the battery lifetime of devices is up to 10 years which helps keeping the maintenance costs low!
As an IT company we know how important security is. This is the reason why we have chosen LoRaWAN. The technology uses an industry standard end-to-end encryption to send data securely from the sensors to the gatways.
|Battery life of typical devices||Very long. 2-10 years||Very short. A few months||Short. Months|
|Range||Very far. Even into cellars. 2 to 12 km||Very short. Within a home. Up to 0.1km||Far. Partly in cellars. 2km|
One Gateway for many homes. Needs internet access
|A WiFi-Router per home||SIM card + contract per device|
|Data bandwidth||Very low
Enough for sensor data
|Very high. Video streaming||Medium. Audio streaming; partly video|
