LoRaWAN® for Smart Cities
The solution for many of the challenges that Smart Cities face.
LoRaWAN® sensors monitor noise, air and water pollution and keep citizens informed of air quality, conditions and pollutants. Parks and gardens can be irrigated optimally by monitoring soil moisture thereby reducing waste and unscheduled maintenance and upkeep.
Parking spaces are monitored and managed more efficiently, generating incremental revenue as well as aiding parking providers to adapt pricing to real-world patterns. The city can monitor “no parking” spots to ensure fire, police and ambulance services are always guaranteed access.
Safety & Security
LoRaWAN® trackers provide information on asset location, sensors detect open doors, windows or movement, people and processes notified when condition thresholds are exceeded and devices send alerts when smoke and fire are detected.
Cities are able to manage their energy footprint more effectively, detect outages, broken lights or supply outages. Intelligently managing lighting, cities are able to promote security in urban areas as well as improve safety for pedestrians, riders and road users.
Understanding the status of bins enables city service providers to react to real-time fill levels, avoids containers spilling over and littering, allows for more efficient refuse collection and reduces unnecessary pick-ups of half-empty bins thereby saving fuel and reducing pollution.

How LoRaWAN technology empowers the Smart Cities industry
Smart City is used as a “catch-all” for many diverse topics. But most will agree that the objective of a smart city is quite common: enhance performance, optimize resources, reduce waste, consumption and costs, and most importantly improve the quality of life of its citizens.
LoRaWAN® is the solution for many of the challenges that Smart Cities face and is particularly suited for smart city applications that would benefit:
- Low data communication
- Battery-operated wireless devices
- Long battery life up to 10 years
- Communicating across distances ranging up to 15kms
- Low operation and maintenance costs
- Secure bi-directional communication
- Localisation capability and mobility
Smart city stakeholders and service providers can connect numerous battery-powered “things” on a single, dedicated LoRaWAN network, facilitating data collection from energy meters, street lighting, parking sensors, condition monitoring equipment, air quality stations, waste & recycling containers, storm drains, asset monitoring and much more.
The LoRaWAN data can be incorporated into existing city systems which send notifications, create reports, activate processes, alert people or trigger other automated actions.
LoRaWAN adds a dedicated purpose-built network for the Internet of Things applications, freeing up other city communication infrastructure to be more cost-effectively utilized, more efficiently employed and to realize greater returns on investment (ROI).
