Wireless IoT Sensors For Temperature, Humidity, Light and Motion

low-cost, wireless multi-sensors

Droplet Sensor

LoRa Environmental Wireless Sensors

The Droplet is Nube iO’s very own LoRa IoT sensor, which has been built to address the problem of wanting multiple points of data capture with minimal time for install and wiring. LoRa wireless IoT sensor technologies requires less power, meaning it can be battery powered using AA batteries. This technology is more reliable in communicating information to the receiver than regular WiFi.

As sensors are wireless, Nube iO droplets can be easily installed on any surface to collect multiple data points. The receiver then aggregates, interprets, and sends this information over to a local or cloud server.

Nube iO droplet wireless sensors are currently available in three models. These models include:

temp_sensor_2_transp
Temperature and Humidity IoT Sensor
light_sensor_transparent
Temperature, Humidity and Light IoT Sensor
sensor_2
Temperature, Humidity, Light And Motion IoT Sensor

Key Uses For Environmental Wireless Sensors

Key Uses

  • Remote visualisation of building environments
  • Improve comfort conditions in buildings
  • Motion sensors detect after hours entry
  • Motion sensors detect movement and trigger HVAC and lighting
  • Compare environmental data with scheduled set point to test HVAC efficiency
  • Receive status of HVAC and lighting

Why LoRa

LoRa is a low-power, long-range wireless technology designed for the Internet of Things. It is less affected by buildings and other obstructions than regular WiFi, with one gateway generally being able to provide coverage for a 70x70m 3-story building.

LoRa is expected to hold 75% of the IoT device market share soon. The LoRa community is expanding rapidly, with many new contributions and developments occurring every day.

Distance vs. Power Consumption

Considering LoRa transmission messages are very small, around 50 bytes, less power is required than say to make a phone call or upload a photo. Using LoRa, our sensors can achieve a 5+ year battery life when pushing data once a day. Alternatives either cannot transmit the required distance, or are too costly to do so.

Indoor Network Coverage

LoRa runs on a low radio frequency, which enables the transmission to penetrate common building obstacles such as furniture, walls, pipes and even concrete. Our LoRa Raw devices can transmit around 100m in a commercial building, which is impressive considering the weaker penetration of WiFi.

Active & Open Community

The LoRa community is very active and open, comprising of companies and individuals who are further developing LoRa and LoRaWAN. Because of this, the technology is constantly improving and there is lots of available support online and through forums. This is different from legacy, proprietary software.
