Four-Faith drives global change by creating innovative technology that facilitates a smarter, cleaner and more connected planet. Specifically, Internet of Things (IoT) applications leveraging Four-Faith's LoRa gateway devices and the LoRaWAN gateway standard enable a wide range of solutions that improve efficiency and reduce waste.
How to use LoRaWAN Gateway to Improve the Efficiency of Public Lighting Infrastructure
Cities and public utilities were both early adopters of IoT technology. Today, more than ever, communities need to increase sustainability and improve quality of life for citizens and visitors. As cities become more sustainable, public lighting infrastructure provides a unique opportunity to improve energy efficiency via Cloud-based monitoring and management as well integration with other urban IoT capabilities like smart metering.
Four-Faith's LoRa gateway wireless radio frequency devices offer low power and long battery life, making it an ideal solution for a wide variety of smart city applications relying on battery-powered sensors and actuators. By deploying an IoT sensor network based on LoRa gateway, cities can establish data-driven efficiencies that improve public services and rationalize costs.
Traditional public lighting is expensive due to several factors. These systems do not allow for carefully calibrated, real time control and data output, which means lighting units may stay lit even when they are not needed. Traditional lighting systems also require intensive field personnel operations to detect system anomalies.
With the rise of low power wide area network (LPWAN) technologies, new smart lighting solutions are proving to be a compelling alternative to other connectivity options for both IoT networks and smart cities applications. Smarter management and monitoring leads to cost and energy savings, which is critical in today's ecological climate. Unnecessary public lighting is expensive and inefficient. Utility providers can help address this issue via more effective management based on environmental data such as human presence and weather conditions, as well as real-time measurement of utility data.
By implementing a smart lighting infrastructure comprised of sensors and gateways utilizing the LoRaWAN gateway standard, cities and utility providers can collect real-time data, analyze it and act on insights, enabling more efficient use of resources and personnel. Integrating new technologies into public lighting infrastructure has the potential to save costs, optimize processes and facilitate improved decision making. Smart lighting infrastructure lays groundwork for the implementation of a smart digital platform to manage other city services, an important step toward becoming a smart city.
