As part of its commitment to bring IoT technology and modern Building Management Systems to small and medium-size buildings, Wattsense has joined the LoRa Alliance®.

The LoRa Alliance works to enable large-scale deployment of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) IoT through the development and promotion of the LoRaWAN® open standard.

Energy waste, pollution, utility costs, government requirements, and higher expectations from tenants create the need to install or update BMS. These systems monitor air conditioning, heating, ventilation, lighting, and energy supply systems. Unfortunately, traditional BMS are primarily used in large buildings due to their cost and complexity.

With Wattsense, small and medium buildings can all be cost-effectively transformed into Smart Buildings by saving weeks on installation, maintenance and reducing on-site interventions and operational costs.

The Wattsense LoRa gateway is an IoT solution dedicated to facilitating the integration of modern BMS. Thanks to its LoRaWAN to BACnet IP/ Modbus TCP functionalities, integrators can locally access the data of any LoRaWAN sensor. At the same time, property managers can provide their tenants with energy efficiency, comfort, security, air quality, and more.

Depending on your project's technical specifications, you can use: the Box, a remotely managed IoT device that collects data and controls equipment with a Cloud Service, or the Hub, an intuitive IoT gateway and powerful controller designed for on-premises building automation.

Donna Moore, CEO, and Chairwoman, LoRa Alliance

"Solutions providers like Wattsense are key to building the LoRaWAN ecosystem. By joining, it gains the opportunity to leverage our ecosystem and grow its business through collaboration with other members. At the same time, we look forward to its contributions to the Alliance based on its real-world experience deploying and using LoRaWAN in smart buildings, which will allow us to further advance the standard.

Louis Vermorel, CEO & Founder of Wattsense

At Wattsense, we believe that the IoT ecosystem and its work enabling smart building solutions is an essential part of transforming the building management sector. Through the Alliance and its members, we can bring innovative value to this market.
