Sensor variants support LoRaWAN regions AU915-928 and a growing number of countries in the AS923 region
The Sentrius RS1xx temperature and humidity sensors from Laird enable battery-powered, local and wide-area sensor applications using LoRaWAN and Bluetooth 4.2. The RS1xx are described as small, rugged, and easily configurable sensors to monitor environmental data with your own network of sensors.
Whether it’s the integrated temperature and humidity sensor or the external temperature probe sensor with a wider temperature range, both are claimed to be power-conscious sensors that are configurable to transmit infrequently and last for years on the same set of two replaceable AA batteries.
Laird believes that it will be easy to create a sensor network that provides miles of coverage that is configurable via a Smartphone or tablet. This can apparently be connected to any existing LoRaWAN network server or Gateway or, combined with Laird’s RG1xx Gateway to build your own end-to-end sensor network.
New sensors compliant with LoRa Alliance regional parameters and country radio certifications mean that, building on the existing popular North American (US902-928) and European (EU863-870) variants, Laird Connectivity now offer several new variants of the Sentrius RS1xx Sensors for operation in Australia (AU915 or AS923), Taiwan or New Zealand (AS923).
