Semtech LoRa ICs Tapped for Smart Door Locks

Semtech has announced that New H3C Group (H3C), a Chinese provider of digital infrastructure and Internet of Things (IoT) products, has integrated Semtech’s LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol into its new intelligent door lock applications to bring increased safety, efficiency and convenient management to dormitories and schools.

Colleges and universities consistently seek smarter applications to improve the safety and management of campus facilities, says H3C. Based on its “one network, one platform” IoT business model, H3C’s intelligent door lock system for smart campuses consists of LoRa-based lock sensors, an integrated gateway implementing the LoRaWAN protocol, the “Oasis” IoT platform, and door lock management software. The integrated gateway implementing the LoRaWAN protocol provides comprehensive coverage and deep signal penetration, enabling the connection of door locks on campus through a single gateway. These capabilities reduce deployment cost and simplify dormitory management for staff by providing consistent campus coverage and reducing the need for individual key distribution. LoRa-based data, managed by H3C’s “Oasis” IoT platform, further increases the security of campus buildings by allowing the accurate monitoring of students entering and exiting connected buildings in real time.

Semtech’s LoRa devices are widely adopted long-range, low-power solutions for IoT that gives telecom companies, IoT application makers and system integrators the feature set necessary to deploy low-cost, interoperable IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and IoT services worldwide. IoT networks based on the LoRaWAN specification have been deployed in 100 countries and Semtech is a founding member of the LoRa Alliance, the fastest growing IoT alliance for low power wide area network applications.
