Smart Homes & Buildings

LoRa Technology’s low power qualities and ability to penetrate dense building materials make it an ideal platform for IoT-connected smart home and building devices. In addition, the long range capabilities make it possible for LoRa®-enabled sensors to track assets that stray from home. Sensors in smart home and building applications can detect danger, optimize utility usage and more to improve the safety and convenience of everyday living.
