Polysense releases sensor for end node, iEdge computing platform

Polysense Technologies Inc., an innovation provider of LPWAN IoT solutions for fiber and wireless sensing, has announced the commercial availability of image and video capturing on its industry LoRa®-based WxS end node and iEdge computing platform with patented image and video analysis, the company said.

The Polysense WxS 8800 universal sensor node series incorporates Semtech´s (Nasdaq: SMTC) LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) and LoRaWANâ„¢ open standard from the LoRa Allianceâ„¢ to support long ranges of 3km to 5km in NLOS (None Line of Sight) urban environments, and over 15km reach in LOS (Line of Sight) open environments. With nine integrated internal sensors and connectivity for an external analog and digital sensor, the WxS 8800 enables a wide range of IoT applications.

Now with the new image and video capture capabilities on WxS 8800, Polysense is the only vendor that provides smart triggered capturing of event detections for applications such as asset protection, perimeter security, and senior care – where image and video are essential.
