Semtech’s LoRa® Devices Monitor Equipment Energy Use with Connected Plugs
EasyReach’s “EasyPlug” tracks energy consumption and movement in retail refrigerators, machines to prevent waste, theft and tampering
CAMARILLO, Calif., March 4, 2020 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that EasyReach Solutions (EasyReach), a technology company focused on enabling Internet of Things (IoT) applications for the retail and industrial domain, has developed a new energy and use status monitoring solution based on Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol. The “EasyPlug” leverages LoRa devices’ unique solution set for simple deployment, and reliable real-time data monitoring to detect changes to the usage status of appliances.
“With Semtech’s LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol, EasyReach was able to create a product to enable efficient, reliable energy monitoring for a variety of applications,” said Amol Vedak, Founder and Director at EasyReach. “The EasyPlug deploys in about 10 minutes and the low power capabilities of the battery powered sensor enables monitoring applications even when they are switched off.”
The EasyPlug LoRa-based sensor deploys to the power supply cord of appliances in about 10 minutes and immediately begins collecting data on the appliance’s energy usage, on/off status and location data in real time. EasyReach’s web-based platform creates reports on the collected data for user trend analysis, providing insight into the energy efficiency of their applications. Additionally, automated alerts generated by the system notify managers of changes in equipment use to prevent theft, overuse or abnormalities. Return on Investment (ROI) begins upon deployment, with applications monitoring energy consumption and reducing associated bills. EasyPlug has enabled a number of successful applications to date, including retail refrigerators, hospital X-ray machines, security cameras, computers, digital signage, and office equipment.
“Smart IoT applications leveraging LoRa devices provide customers with accessible and actionable data enabling them to reduce energy waste and monthly bills,” said Marc Pegulu, Vice President of IoT in Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol allow the simple deployment of flexible solutions to efficiently and reliably monitor power consumption as well as provide new operational efficiencies.”
