LPRS establishes company for cloud-based M2M and IoT monitoring
Sub-1GHz wireless specialist, Low Power Radio Solutions (LPRS), has launched a new company, LPRS Connected Solutions (LPRS CS), to provide systems integrators with cloud-based, end-to-end machine to machine (M2M) and internet of things (IoT) monitoring.
“LPRS developed their market leading easyRadio modules to overcome the problems our customers found with developing wireless communication systems and the software to control them,” comments Nick Pummell, managing director of LPRS. “The same is now true of customers looking to deploy IoT solutions and attempting to assemble various elements including cloud back office, sensor hardware and communications infrastructure from a number of disparate sources, and combine them into one overall system for an effective, reliable, control and monitoring solution”
LPRS CS builds on more than 25 years’ of experience in the M2M wireless control market and offers systems integrators end-to-end service, including wireless sensors, wireless gateways and a cloud platform with secure web-browser access.
The LPRS CS long range wireless temperature monitoring solution has been developed for industrial temperature sensing applications. Using wireless technology and cloud back-office infrastructure, the system is designed to operate as a standalone wireless network, independent of a location’s own information technology (IT) infrastructure.
The system comprises, LPRS CS’s low power wireless temperature sensor devices, coupled to its own cloud-based service, robust and scalable management and a web-based control platform for managing wireless devices.
Customers can use the IoT system to automate existing manual processes and gather a high level of accurate and detailed information from installed systems or new services.
The system is designed with original device manufacturers (ODMs) and end users in mind, offering a customisable white-label solution, says LPRS CS. The innovative technology can enable companies to change business outcomes and behaviours, add new revenue streams, disrupt existing markets and drive customer loyalty
The hardware is battery-powered and provides long range wireless communication for campus coverage with a three to five year operational life before requiring battery replacement. It has an IP67 waterproof housing, is IT network independent; does not require Wi-Fi or Ethernet, provides a temperature reading every 10 minutes and has an operating temperature range from -20 to +60 degree C.
LPRS CS claims that its proprietary cloud platform provides secure web-browser access, infinite hierarchal log-in’s for flexible customer use, an easy-to-use reporting system, a user configurable alerting engine and is secure and scalable.
Typical applications include medical refrigeration monitoring, room temperature monitoring, museum and leisure temperature monitoring, facilities management (monitoring for Legionella and other potential hazards) and in home telehealth.
LPRS designs and manufactures the eRIC and easyRadio Advanced (eRA) interchangeable industrial, scientific, medical (ISM) / low power wide area network (LPWAN) wireless radio modules in the UK. LPRS offers LPWAN technologies, such as Sigfox and LoRa, which build on the success of previous short to medium range 433/868Mhz ISM radio products.
