Semtech, H3C Build Safer Campuses with LoRa-based Intelligent Door Locks

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that New H3C Group (H3C), a Chinese provider of digital infrastructure and Internet of Things (IoT) products, has integrated Semtech´s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol into its new intelligent door lock applications to bring increased safety, efficiency and convenient management to dormitories and schools, the company said.

Colleges and universities consistently seek smarter applications to improve the safety and management of campus facilities. Based on its “one network, one platform” IoT business model, H3C´s intelligent door lock system for smart campuses consists of LoRa-based lock sensors, an integrated gateway implementing the LoRaWAN protocol, the “Oasis” IoT platform, and door lock management software.

The integrated gateway implementing the LoRaWAN protocol provides comprehensive coverage and deep signal penetration, enabling the connection of door locks on campus through a single gateway. These capabilities reduce deployment cost and simplify dormitory management for staff by providing consistent campus coverage and reducing the need for individual key distribution. LoRa-based data, managed by H3C´s “Oasis” IoT platform, further increases the security of campus buildings by allowing the accurate monitoring of students entering and exiting connected buildings in real time.

As a provider of digital solutions, New H3C Group is committed to becoming trusted partner for business innovation and digital transformation. H3C offers a full portfolio of digital infrastructure products, from computer, storage, networking, security, and other domains. To learn more about H3C, visit
