Environmental sensors are one of the most common in the different Internet of Things (IoT) verticals.Their primary purpose is to analyze trends and patterns of air pollutants in the atmosphere - the gas layer surrounding a light blue body, like the Earth.The environmental monitoring depends entirely on the scenario where you intend to apply it.However, among the most relevant environmental monitoring aims to ensure the fulfillment of environmental regulations within companies in both offices and factories, perform efficiency assessment of machinery, and find human and wildlife risks, among others.https://news.rakwireless.com/connect-a-rak7204-to-helium-and-forward-its-data-to-ubidots/

The pandemic may have slowed our life down, but new experiences still abound especially in the Internet of Things (IoT).Unlike most industries that succumbed to the challenges of the global virus, IoT is striving to provide remote solutions that help uplift struggling nations.Most organizations worldwide have already implemented remote asset management, environmental monitoring, and contact tracing to continue operations.As more of these solutions are needed day by day, tech leaders need more people to ensure their quality before these versions reach the public.One of those leaders is RAKwireless.

The installation environment of outdoor LoRaWAN gateways can be seen in Figure 1.In terms of protection, it often needs to be better than indoor gateways, such as lightning protection, waterproofing, and dustproofing.Figure 1 Common installation environment of outdoor LoRaWAN gatewayThe outer shell of the outdoor LoRaWAN gateway RAK7249 supports 5 N-head antennas, and the function of each antenna is different.In actual applications, it depends on the configuration required by the customer.If 4G is required, it may not be necessary to install all of them.
The global pandemic that started last March 2020 and persisted in today’s time is still totally throwing all of us into disarray.Billions of people who had plans of traveling abroad or at least within their countries are halted and forced to remain at home.Healthcare workers from different medical fields are now obliged to attend to thousands of emergency cases of the same nature each day.
RAK’s José Marcelino’s and Balena’s Marc Pous demonstrated deploying RAK’s developer gateways with a new reliable and much secure protocol running on top of Balena’s container technologyLast July, our solutions architect together with Balena showcased a tutorial for provisioning RAK’s developer LPWAN gateways with the newest Packet Forwarder protocol, LoRa Basics™ Station on The Things Network (TTN).This new protocol utilizes JSON format over WebSockets (TCP based), supports TLS encryption and certificates-based authentication between the gateway and the cloud service bringing much-improved security and reliable data transmission.Many LoRaWAN® operators as well as the community are now adopting it as a replacement for the long deprecated de facto standard UDP based protocol.
What is in the box?The package contains a gateway, antenna's, port terminators, mounting brackets and a power-over-ethernet (PoE) injector.Read full article here - https://news.rakwireless.com/gateway-installation-an-in-depth-guide/
If before, Linux was only commonly used for programming projects, Linux is now dominating the scene of the Internet of Things (IoT).In a 2018 survey sponsored by the Eclipse IoT Working Group, AGILE IoT, IEEE, and the Open Mobile Alliance, Linux was hailed as the top operating system (OS) for the IoT community.Among 502 respondents, 71.8% responded with “Linux” as the most-trusted OS for their IoT devices.
This article describes how to use IoT Studio to develop your own web application on the Alibaba Cloud IoT platform, so that there can be multiple points in the same control, and each point displays its own information.The user does not need to know how many devices in advance.The specific steps are described below.One, create a new web applicationThe premise of creating a new Web application is that a project has been established.How to build a project on Alibaba Cloud, you can refer to the previous article How to build a new project based on the public IoT Studio project of the Alibaba Cloud IoT platform.Here, we will no longer introduce how to create a project, but on the basis of the original project, add a new web application.Read full Article here - https://www.guestarticlehouse.com/how-to-use-iot-studio-on-alibaba-cloud-iot-platform-to-develop-web-applications-with-login-permission-management/

While IoT’s reach has gone further to rural areas in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, the additional hurdles that its deployment faces remain.Since most implementations of IoT for development use LoRaWAN protocol that leverage application servers provided by The Things Networks (TTN), the total unavailability and expensive cost of the internet in these areas mean great difficulty.Possible breakthroughs in the fields of landslide detection, water and air quality monitoring, water levels in rivers, and meteorology may never occur.These areas, where IoT application is most appealing, can experience slower fulfillment of smart city.
As the goal of IoT is to interconnect everything in the world, developers aim to extend the reach of LoRaWAN® access even to things in remote areas.At present, a number of IoT users from these areas have already begun their own LoRa® projects to improve their area’s agricultural and water systems.If you are one of them, difficulties in connecting are not new to you, most especially the challenge in having an intermittent power supply.With unexpected, frequent power outages, you absolutely cannot make the most of this promising new technology.Imagine this scenario: you are close to accessing a server from a faraway area but, your gateways suddenly shut down, making you start your whole data transfer from scratch.It is certainly a situation we do not want to find ourselves in.
Introducing the New BLACK RAK7246 Gateway to give a new flavor to what is fundamentally always a BLACK color casing design.Form, great function and yet affordable in price.
With the advent of improved technology, the world has never been easier to live in, new innovations and smarter living spaces, as well as devices, have been made possible with IoT.
We hope our LoRa Gateway Developer kit will help you get started and would love to see what you build with LoRa technology.LoRa Gateway Kit for Raspberry Pi3 with cellular connectivity is designed for license-sub-gigahertz radio frequency bands like 868 MHz and 915 MHz.For the outdoor customized Original Raspberry Pi 5.1V-2.5A, the power supply comes with the kit to secure outdoor placement with ease.As our basic LoRa gateway bonnet, this chipset can support all 8 channels, so it can handle multiple clients, on different LoRa channels, without having to do any code tweaks.In LoRa Gateway Kit, the main processor can be a PC or MCU that will be connected to RAK831 via USB or SPI RAK831 can receive up to 8 LoRa packets at once sent with different spreading factors on different channels.Mainly the local version of LoRa network server running under Windows so it does not need an external network connection.
