Semtech’s LoRa® Devices Reduce Energy Waste with Smarter Metering Applications

Good morning IoT !

Semtech Corporation, announced that Elmeasure, and ClodPi Labs developed a new LoRa-based prepaid energy metering solution. This new line of prepaid smart meters tracks and reports usage data in real time for precise billing and reduced energy waste in utility applications.

“Semtech’s LoRa devices provide the ideal platform for smart energy management and give real advantages over traditional solutions,” said Sam Cherian Chairman at Elmeasure. “LoRa devices deliver reliable, real-time data for customers to track both usage rates and meter operation. Elmeasure and ClodPi’s innovative platform also allows customers to manage multiple meter solutions together, including those for water and gas, for smarter overall energy monitoring with reduced operating cost.”

“The LoRaWAN protocol enables the robust long range networks necessary to connect many metering applications for simple and efficient management,” said Karthi Ganesan, Founder and CTO at ClodPi. “LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol are leading technologies for IoT and offer the proven capacity to accelerate the development of devices and networking applications today. The consistent and secure connectivity provided by LoRaWAN allows customers to reap the rewards of bringing their utility applications to the Cloud and help receive a quick return on investment.”

Elmeasure and ClodPi’s LoRa-based prepaid meters monitor energy use in real time, and provide users alerts through email or text message when abnormalities, including rate spikes or meter tampering, occur. Additionally, the solutions allow the integration and monitoring of smart meters for gas and water under the same platform for aggregate viewing and management. By providing consistent, accurate data on usage, these prepaid smart meters enable customers to budget and stay in control of energy use and waste, saving on monthly bills and reducing environmental impact.

“As more and more utilities and facilities aim to help their end users to improve their energy and water usage, and have a better control and monitoring, there is a direct advantage for Elmeasure to provide them an end-to-end solution easier to deploy and operate with their IoT smart devices based on Semtech’s LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol,” said Rémi Demerlé, Director of Vertical Marketing for Utilities in Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Elmeasure and ClodPi capitalized on LoRa devices’ proven feature set to accelerate its development and push metering products to market that bring compelling advantages for sustainable, cost-effective energy use.”
