Market-ready meters offer dual radio communication for increased accuracy

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, has announced that Lemonbeat, an Internet of Things (IoT) solution provider, has integated Semtech´s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) into its smart metering solutions for easier reading and collection of utility usage, the company said.

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. Using this connectivity, meters send data through multiple floors in bigger buildings or all way in to the street, where network operators conveniently collect the data without having to enter the building.

Using the meters´ other radio frequency, Lemonbeat Radio, meters provide customers accurate data on their energy consumption. With a third-party application, individuals can view and analyze this data, and change their habits accordingly.

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 LoRaWANâ„¢ specification have been deployed in over 100 countries and Semtech is a founding member of the LoRa Allianceâ„¢, the fastest growing IoT Alliance for Low Power Wide Area Network applications. To learn more about how LoRa enables IoT, visit Semtech´s LoRa site and join the LoRa Community to access free training as well as an online industry catalog showcasing the products you need for building your ideal IoT application.

Dortmund-based Lemonbeat GmbH was founded in October 2015 as a 100% subsidiary of innogy SE – one of the largest utility company in Europe. Further information can be found at www.lemonbeat.com
