LoRa device based electricity smart meter cuts energy use
Semtech has announced that IHM Pacific and Andrea Informatique have collaborated to develop a new LoRa-based electricity smart meter system based on its LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol.

IHM Pacific and Andrea Informatique’s smart meter systems use LoRa devices from Semtech and the LoRaWAN protocol to offer significant improvements over traditional metering in both applications of electricity metering for utilities and sub metering. LoRa-based smart meter systems do not require additional external cabling (IP, RS485 or pulse network cabling). This allows for greater ease of installation with systems to quickly deploy in 2 DIN rails, a standard mount for meter equipment racks. Simplified deployment significantly reduces the cost of installation for the customer, which typically accounts for 40 percent of the total cost of ownership.

In addition, the reliable usage data provided by LoRaWAN-based systems enable customers to understand their energy consumption in real time. Due to the remote monitoring of electrical consumption and a vast collection of measurement data including the active energy consumed and produced to detect abnormal consumption trends and adjust usage rates, customers usually see up to 26 percent reduction in power consumption within three to six months of deployment.
