Lora Networks & WiFi Partners

The WiFi Partners also work with LoRa WAN networks, to deploy a private IoT network across wide areas, connecting variety of sensor devices, mounted in a diverse range of location types and use-cases.

The LoRa network allows businesses to connect devices, machines & sensors together, creating a private network, and not necessarily requiring an Internet connection. With LoRa's long range capabilities of 1-10km possible, networks can span large buildings, industrial  estates, housing blocks, towns, cities and even into the countryside and across farms.

A Lora network offers your IoT deployment long range, low cost and long life battery - and a wide range of sensors and applications.

Deployed with WiFi Partners, we bring together great subject-matter expertise along with the proven WiFi Portal, so all your reporting, monitoring and controls are in one, easy to use online portal - whether its your WiFi, on-site network connected devices, IoT / Lora or even CCTV - its in one place, securely and accessible 24/7.

Note: There are a range of IoT network types along side LoRa including M2M, WIFI, LoRaWAN, SigFox, BLE, NB-IOT, ZigBee.  WiFi Partners' systems are agnostic and can work with the best choice for the company and site in question.


LoRa Sensor Types

  • Temperature

    Measuring ambient temperature around a physical location, inside, outside or within a machine (for example within a fridge or freezer).

  • Humidity

    Measure relative humidity of air within a room or enclosure. Great for monitoring humdity in industrial spaces, saunas, greenhouses, museums etc. Also a good tool in residential housing to help control mould, mildew or dust mites.

  • CO2

    Monitors level of carbon dioxide CO2 gas in surrounding areas. Contains a life-time sensor.

  • Water Detect

    Detects water, and helps prevent property damage from leaks and flooding. Ideal for locations with potential flooding risk or around plumbing installations. Can also detect lack of water is you can detect when a container or tank is nearly empty.

  • Water Rope

    The Water Rope sensor has a 10 foot (expandable to 100ft) detection rope. If any conductive liquids touch the rope, the sensor is triggered. The detection rope dries and resets quickly, in-readiness for further activations.

  • Ultra Sonic

    Detects distances between the sensor and a targeted or moving object. Typical applications include water / liquid levels and distance of a moving object. These sensors auto recalibrate to allow for temperature or humidity fluctuations.  

  • Open or Closed

    Alerts on the status of a door, window, cabinet, draw or other opening object, showing it is open / closed or has been for a given time period. For example, a freezer door open for more that two minutes, or monitoring access to controlled properties or areas like cargo bays, computer rooms or cabinets.

  • Motion Detection

    Wireless motion sensor using infrared technology (aka PIR) with a range of 5m. 

  • Carbon Monoxide

    Detects possible danger from increasing CO levels and the risk of poisoning. Beyond general scenarios, this is particularly important in the care for elderly, children and immune compromised peoples. 

  • Dry Contact

    Detects contact between two wired points. For example the sensor can be connected to a mechanical switch or contact plate to detect when the switch is triggered, and then alert the system.

  • Accelerometer

    Uses to detect impact, vibration, inclination and G-Forces. Its mainly used as an inclinometer or tilt sensor, with G-force measurements along X, Y & Z axis.

  • Voltage Meter

    Measures the voltage on another device, sensor or battery, with up to 500 VAC possible, and by connecting to the positive and negative terminals of the unit being monitored. Typical uses include Pressure Transducer, RTD, Thermistor, Industrial Accelerometer, but there are many uses and scenarios.

  • Voltage Detect

    Measures the voltage on another device, sensor or battery, with up to 500 VAC possible, and by connecting to the positive and negative terminals of the unit being monitored. Typical uses include Pressure Transducer, RTD, Thermistor, Industrial Accelerometer, but there are many uses and scenarios.

  • AC Current Meter

    Measures the RMS current of an alternating current system using a current transformer. The sensor measures the current, maximum & average RMS current and the amp hours.  

  • Resistance

    Measures resistance across any resistive load, and measures resistance - up to 250k Ohms, accurate to +/- 2% and interfaces with purely resistive and passive load. 

  • MA Current Meter

    The 0-20mA current meter sensor measures the current on another device or sensor, up to 20mA (DC). Examples of interfacing devices include Current Transducers (CTs) with outputs up to 20 mA, pH sensor, dissolved oxygen sensor, pressure sensor, magnetic flow meters, velocity or acceleration sensors, industrial vibration sensors, industrial accelerometers, and other devices with a mA output within the range of 0 – 20.

  • Pulse Counter

    The sensor is integrated with a mechanical switch or dry contact, counting the number of actuations in a given period.

  • Light Meter

    The sensor measures the light intensity (from 0-83k LUX).  Example scenarios include museum and art galleries.

  • Pressure Meter

    Sensor measures pressure, for example pressurised gas, liquid or vapour supply lines. 

  • Activity

    Activity sensors detects movement or non-movement. This is great for applications requiring detection of vibration or movement, for example counting how often a machine is started, pump monitoring, sudden movement in monitored areas, or even detecting if a window's glass is compromised. 

  • Button

    The button when pressed sends a real-time alert to the monitoring system, and includes a red LED light to indicate activation.

  • Air Quality

    This PM2.5 sensor measures PM1, PM2.5 and PM10 concentrations in the air. 

  • Air Velocity

    The wireless air speed sensor measures the temperature and altitude between two ports to calculate the speed of air movement within a system.

  • Differential Air Pressure

    The sensor has two input pipes, and measures the differential between the two end points. Scenarios include room pressure, air flow, duct pressure, hospitals and care homes, Clean rooms, computer & data centres.

  • Hydrogen Sulphide

    Monitoring hydrogen sulfide gas.
