No cellular coverage? We have a solution for that. Meet LoRa. It works much like cellular, except it uses much less power resulting in longer battery life, and it is cheaper to operate when you have many devices running on the network.
Much lower monthly fees
Long battery life
Keep an eye on your assets
How LoRa Works.
LoRa devices, such as our LoRa asset trackers, communicate through LoRa gateways, much like how cell phones communicate through cell towers.
LoRa devices can communicate with a gateway up to 2 km away in urban areas, and up to 30 km in rural areas!
Where are the LoRa Gateways?
BeeSecure LoRa gateways are purchased by individuals, businesses, and organizations to provide coverage for their devices. This helps grow the community network.
If your device leaves the coverage area provided by your gateway, and enters the coverage area of someone else’s gateway, your device will start communicating through their gateway!
As more individuals and organizations purchase gateways, the larger the network becomes for everyone.
Is LoRa right for you?
Using LoRa is best in terms of a lower total cost of ownership when you have many devices. This is because you don’t need a SIM card and data plan for every device like you do with cellular! The cost of purchasing a gateway can quickly be recovered by the savings you have from using LoRa devices instead of cellular devices.
The main thing to consider is that there is not nearly as much LoRa coverage as there is cellular. This is not an issue for devices that don’t move such as our tamper/motion detector. However, the lack of coverage can be an issue for asset trackers that might move out of coverage. If your LoRa tracker moves out of LoRa coverage, you won’t receive the real-time position until it moves into an area with LoRa coverage again, such as near another organization with a BeeSecure gateway.
Although you won’t be receiving your tracker’s position during this time, you will still receive valuable information when it starts moving. You will be alerted the moment your tracker starts to move, and you will know what direction it is heading. Knowing this information can help law enforcement recover your stolen asset quickly, opposed to not knowing that your asset was stolen at all!
