SANTA CLARA, CA: With the aim to simplify IoT deployments, Actility, provider of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) collaborates with myDevices, designer of Cayenne. The alliance goal is to merge Actility’s vast IoT platform with myDevices’ connected device solution to reduce the complication of creation and deployment of IoT projects leveraging the diversity of the LoRa ecosystem.

The LoRa Alliance is a non-profit association of members that join to drive the success of LoRaWAN in order to secure carrier-grade IoT LPWA connectivity. Actility and myDevices are the members of LoRa Alliance. LoRa Alliance built the network based on the LoRa technology, which is basically designed to communicate over long distance consuming minimum power.

“The main challenge today is the need for connected devices with low energy consumption. With the Internet of Things (IoT) new needs for business and consumer business cases, energetic independency is the key for Smart Objects”, says Olivier Hersent, Founder and CTO, Actility.

The alliance enables organizations with simpler IoT development capabilities like:

IoT Project Developer:  can easily connect, monitor and control—sensors, motors, lights and other devices;

Integration: Various sensors, motors, actuators from any hardware manufacturer can be merged into a single project view;

Remote Sensor Monitoring: envisions real time and historical sensor data;

Remote Device Control: Switch on and off motors, lights and other controllable devices using the online dashboard or from the iOS or Android apps;

Scheduling: Set single or recurring events to turn on or off devices at pre-defined times.

“We are proud to launch this application partnership with Actility to provide the LoRa community with innovative technologies that simplify the connected world,” asserts Kevin Bromber, CEO, myDevices.
