Semtech Corp., supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that YoSmart, a high-tech enterprise company focused on smart home and life products, is integrating Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) into its new line of products for enterprise and commercial smart building Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
YoSmart’s newest series of LoRa-enabled products include thermostats, sprinkler controllers, door locks, leakage monitors, and smoke alarms. These devices connect to a building’s network and allow consistent, remote monitoring to better conserve energy and predict when maintenance is necessary, saving property managers money.
LoRa Technology is the proven solution of choice for smart buildings due to the ease of deploying solutions, and scalability of applications with the exponential capacity for additional sensors. LoRa Technology has the capacity to function in high density environments, such as in large enterprise buildings or campuses, and can handle thousands of unique messages per day.
Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology is a widely adopted long-range, low-power solution for IoT that gives telecom companies, IoT application makers and system integrators the feature set necessary to deploy low-cost, interoperable IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and IoT services worldwide.
IoT networks based on the LoRaWAN specification have been deployed in over 100 countries and Semtech is a founding member of the LoRa Alliance, the fastest growing IoT Alliance for Low Power Wide Area Network applications.
“YoSmart provides large buildings like campuses and hotels with flexible solutions to maximize efficiency,” said John Xu, Chief Executive Officer at YoSmart. “Semtech’s LoRa Technology provides IoT connectivity in large, dense environments where hundreds of connected devices need to be managed independently. This allows managers to make better choices, leading to more efficient energy use and lower energy costs.”
“Semtech’s LoRa Technology’s scalability and capability to penetrate dense building materials make it an ideal platform for IoT-connected smart home and building applications, no matter how large,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Semtech’s LoRa Technology for enterprise buildings can connect many different applications under the same network – from thermostats to security systems. This allows for convenient oversight by the property managers, and smarter solutions to cut down on expenses due to utility waste or maintenance.”
