Remote control of park cottages in LoRaWAN
The LoRaWAN technology is bidirectional, so it can be used to read information but also to send remote commands.
For the past few years, we have been receiving requests from cities that would like to use technology to remotely control the locks of park cabins or public restrooms, with the goal of avoiding unnecessary staff travel.
Thanks to the arrival on the market of new sensors adapted to this use case, we have developed a remote control offer including sensors and a Web dashboard for manual control or for programming a locking and unlocking schedule for doors. We demonstrated how it works at the last Municipal Information Network(RIMQ) conference in Trois-Rivières, with a miniature park chalet equipped with various LoRa sensors.
While we're at it...
As long as you have a control module in a park chalet that allows you to lock and unlock a door, why not complete the solution with a presence detection sensor, a toilet overflow detection sensor, a door contact and a temperature and humidity sensor? Well, that's exactly what we were asked by a municipality in the Longueuil area that intends to take advantage of the new LoRa network available on its territory.
Our dashboard allows you to set a schedule for the lock and receive alerts by email or text message in different situations, such as if there is movement in the park chalet in the middle of the night, or if the door is left open.
