Semtech’s LoRa Technology Leveraged in YoSmart’s Internet of Things Applications for Enterprise and Commercial Buildings
LoRa Technology’s proven ability to handle many sensors in a dense environment make it ideal for large smart building networks
CES at LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2019 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that YoSmart, a high-tech enterprise company focused on smart home and life products, is integrating Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) into its new line of products for enterprise and commercial smart building Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
“YoSmart provides large buildings like campuses and hotels with flexible solutions to maximize efficiency,” said John Xu, Chief Executive Officer at YoSmart. “Semtech’s LoRa Technology provides IoT connectivity in large, dense environments where hundreds of connected devices need to be managed independently. This allows managers to make better choices, leading to more efficient energy use and lower energy costs.”
YoSmart’s newest series of LoRa-enabled products include thermostats, sprinkler controllers, door locks, leakage monitors, and smoke alarms. These devices connect to a building’s network and allow consistent, remote monitoring to better conserve energy and predict when maintenance is necessary, saving property managers money. LoRa Technology is the proven solution of choice for smart buildings due to the ease of deploying solutions, and scalability of applications with the exponential capacity for additional sensors. LoRa Technology has the capacity to function in high density environments, such as in large enterprise buildings or campuses, and can handle thousands of unique messages per day.
“Semtech’s LoRa Technology’s scalability and capability to penetrate dense building materials make it an ideal platform for IoT-connected smart home and building applications, no matter how large,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Semtech’s LoRa Technology for enterprise buildings can connect many different applications under the same network – from thermostats to security systems. This allows for convenient oversight by the property managers, and smarter solutions to cut down on expenses due to utility waste or maintenance.”
Semtech and YoSmart will be demonstrating LoRa-based solutions at CES Las Vegas from January 8-10, 2019.
