Semtech’s LoRa Technology Tapped for Food Temp Monitoring System

Semtech has announced that Laird Connectivity has integrated LoRa devices and LoRaWAN protocol in temperature monitoring sensors developed for the award-winning ComplianceMate solution, created by CM Systems. CM Systems, a provider of monitoring systems for food safety compliance and operational effectiveness, was the first company to incorporate LoRa-based wireless sensors and LoRaWAN networks in a temperature monitoring system for commercial kitchens.
Customers range from large restaurant chains such as Shake Shack, Five Guys and Hard Rock Café to growing regional brands like City Barbeque and Hattie B’s. The IoT solution penetrates stainless steel doors, concrete walls and even multiple stories, while boosting battery efficiency with sensors that can last for years on off-the-shelf batteries. In February 2018, downtown Nashville experienced a power outage after Hattie B’s had closed for the night. With ComplianceMate’s LoRa-based alert system, store management was notified about the failure immediately and was able to safely transport at-risk product to another facility saving $35,000 to $50,000 worth of inventory.

Semtech’s LoRa devices is a widely adopted long-range, low-power solution 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.
