December 20, 2018 / IoT.Business.News
Market-ready meters offer dual radio communication for increased accuracy. Semtech Corporation announced that Lemonbeat, an Internet of Things (IoT) solution provider, has integated Semtech’s LoRa® devices and technology into its smart metering solutions for easier reading and collection of utility usage. Oliver van der Mond, CEO of Lemonbeat GmbH, said: “During the development of our lean metering solution, we quickly realized that an innovative combination of our own high-bandwidth radio protocol with LoRa Technology’s long range capabilities would be very useful and offer a clear added value.” “We combined the best of both worlds using Semtech’s LoRa Technology as the logical choice. With Semtech, we have found a leading provider who was able to meet our requirements.” Lemonbeat’s LoRa-connected smart meters work by utilizing embedded LoRa-based IoT technology to connect the meter to their own purpose-built receiver units.
