Advanced Technology

The droplet is a LoRa-enabled battery-operated environmental sensor, built to address the problem of wanting multiple points of data capture with minimal time for install and wiring. LoRa wireless technology requires less power and is more reliable in communicating information to the receiver than regular WiFi.

Nube droplets can be easily installed on any surface to collect multiple data points. The receiver, in turn, aggregates, interprets, and then sends this information over to a local server or the cloud.

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.
