The kit is designed to help with door and window monitoring, presence in rooms and at desks, environmental conditions, and water intrusion detection. The kit reportedly comes with more than 20 sensors, two gateways and a global 4G hotspot for simplified setup. The portable nature of the kit allows users to move sensor locations to assess completeness of network coverage.

“The Semtech Smart Building Reference Kit is an excellent way to promote the use of LoRa,” said Wiljan van Loon, Strategic Development Director at Securitas Services Europe. “At the recent Securitas European CTO meeting in Paris, the kit was presented and provided our organization insight into the possibilities of deploying LoRa-based devices for the security industry. The diverse range of sensors as well the easy set-up of this kit support our organizational efforts to promote and deploy LoRa-based Internet of Things (IoT) technology both internally, and for our clients, growing our business.”

“Semtech’s Smart Building Reference Kit will empower potential customers to utilize LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol in the development of their own smart building applications,” said Byron BeMiller, Director, Vertical Marketing, Smart Buildings, Wireless and Sensing Products Group, Semtech. “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.”
