LoRa WAN - IoT for Smart Buildings & Cities


  • LoRa WAN stands for Long Range Wide Area Network. It is a low power wireless technology mainly targeted for M2M and IoT networks. LoRaWAN will enable public or multi tenant networks to connect multiple applications running in the same network. This LoRa technology will fulfill to develop smart building & cities with the help of LoRa sensors and devices in New Zealand.

Intelligent Buildings and the Internet of Things

Boosting performance with LoRa WAN networks and sensors

Facilities are undergoing a rapid transformation connecting and linking HVAC, lighting, environmental sensors, and security and safety equipment. User-driven and automated business processes can now leverage real-time IoT information from people, systems and devices to maximise resource efficiency, reduce cost and risk, and increase visibility across all operations. But how do you get a temperature sensor, for example, to deliver its information into the cloud?

Direct Control provides LoRa WAN solutions for Building Automation and Smart Cities over public and private LoRaWAN IoT networks in New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands.
