French Biggest Auto Club Roole Unveils the Innovation Behind Its GPS Antitheft Tracking Solution Wetrak

Press Release – Paris, France – December 7th, 2022 

Roole, a major French supplemental auto insurance company and the country’s leading car club, has taken its anti-theft service to a whole new level, offering its customers a next-generation geolocation solution coupled with a mobile app, called Wetrak, to find lost or stolen cars, thereby reducing insurance costs. The solution is based on advanced location devices provided by Abeeway, a subsidiary of Actility specializing in low-power indoor and outdoor fused geolocation.   

With an estimated 50% share of the French market with over one million active policyholders, Roole is thinking big. Leveraging IoT technologies such as LoRaWAN® connectivity and Abeeway’s geolocation expertise, the company is poised to transform the market by offering an unparalleled quality of service, distributed through car dealerships in France, and offering a game-changing feature of non-sensitivity to today’s jammers, unlike ordinary cellular GPS devices. 

With a successful first phase of 4,000 devices deployed, and the service becoming popular, the company is launching a massive consumer car tracking offering with over 20,000 devices as a second phase. 

Outsmarting car thieves’ jamming practices thanks to IoT 

Traditional GPS trackers for vehicles rely on cellular networks (GSM) to transmit their signals. They used to be the gold standard in car theft protection. But today, it has become surprisingly easy for thieves to jam or mask their signals so that the police can’t find them.   

A GPS jammer is a generally small, inexpensive, self-contained transmitter device capable of sending radio signals within a short radius using various frequency bands (2G, 3G, 4G, LTE, Lojack, GPS, WiFi and BLE), rendering it unable to determine its position due to interference and transmit data using these common networks.  Less savvy thieves know they can interrupt tracking if they hide a stolen car in an underground garage or steel shipping container. They can also use a portable digital radio frequency (RF) detector to find a tracking device in the vehicle and remove it completely. 

So, to overcome this problem, Abeeway GPS trackers send very short, low-power radio signals via the LoRaWAN network. Thieves cannot use jamming devices to disable LoRaWAN transmissions, and they will not be able to find Abeeway devices using an RF detector.

Coupling unrivaled network technology with a versatile tracking solution  

LoRaWAN® network technology is a widely used wireless protocol that leverages the unlicensed radio spectrum and enables battery-powered sensors to communicate with IoT applications via ultra-low data rate and long range, consuming very little power and allowing batteries to run longer. Because the LoRa radio signal is emitted over a wide spectral range, it greatly reduces the risk of interference from unwanted signals.   

Most importantly, LoRa transmissions can pass through glass, metal, and concrete, allowing data to be sent not only outdoors, but also deep indoors and underground, which is a definite advantage for an anti-theft solution.   

For Wetrak service in France, Roole is using the nationwide public LoRaWAN network provided by Orange, and powered by Actility’s ThingPark Wireless platform.  

Benefiting from LoRaWAN features, Abeeway’s long-life wireless devices allow continuous use for months and years: 2 years with 2 positions per day. The devices work both indoors and outdoors thanks to their multi-technology geolocation system, integrating regular GPS, Abeeway’s patented Low-power GPS, Wi-Fi Sniffing, Bluetooth Low Energy and Bluetooth LE Beaconing for accurate indoor tracking.  

Abeeway devices combine state-of-the-art location technologies, robust hardware, meticulous selection of high-performance low-power chipsets and uncompromising software optimization. This allows for flexible behavior, highly responsive to changing needs, and ensures the location of goods and people in a variety of coverage scenarios.     

Finally, the service integrates the white-labeled Abeeway Mobile App. This user-friendly mobile app allows visualization of the current locations of multiple devices on a map, of the location history of a device on a map, but also geofencing & alarms (SOS, Motion, Leaving/entering geofenced zones), and even location sharing with other users. 

Finally, the service integrates the Abeeway mobile application in white label. This user-friendly application allows users to view the current location of multiple devices on a map, the history of a device’s location, but also geofencing and alarms (SOS, movement, exit/entry of geofenced areas), and even sharing the location with other users.

Advantech and Actility launch a new AI-based Intelligent Predictive Maintenance IoT Solution for Rotating Machinery

Press Release – Paris, France – 16 November 2022

Advantech and Actility announce the launch of a new integrated AI-based solution, supporting the machine operation team in realizing machine prognostics and health management. It allows to monitor multi machines’ status in one stop thanks to the real-time and next seven days’ machine healthy index, including ISO 10816 and degradation level.

The new solution is based on the Advantech WISE-2410 vibration sensor, the high-performance WISE-6610 LoRaWAN® gateway, Actility’s ThingPark Enterprise IoT network management platform and the advanced Advantech’ iMachine/PHM application, and is now available under Trial Kit form on Actility’s IoT marketplace:  ThingPark Market.

The challenges of performing machines health checks 

Maintenance companies have been experiencing increased difficulties in fulfilling their role in recent years. Due to the pandemic, they have been no longer able to travel to customer facilities to perform asset health analysis, and service providers are unable to realize their services and offers.  May are still battling is an exponential slowdown due to the global lockdown.

Many manufacturers who rely on these services to maintain the health of process critical assets are helpless and thus face a high of costly downtime during these unprecedented times.

Implementing efficient maintenance processes is crucial to operators of industrial facilities, but it’s not an easy task. One of their greatest wishes is to avoid lengthy processes of data connection, pre-processing, model development and inference engine development.  

In traditional method, still used by most factory operators, the on-site inspection is done manually, regularly but without stable inspection quality, and only passively reacting and informing the maintenance crew when the problem occurs.

Proactively Keeping Facilities at Productive Status Thanks to IoT  

Actility & Advantech found a perfect partnership to join their forces and offer a solution to solve those issues.

Thanks to a great combination of hardware and software expertise, we designed a winning solution to keep our engines healthy and monitor them to prevent any possible mishap: the Predictive Maintenance Solution for Rotating Machinery Solution. By installing LoRaWAN-connected vibration sensors and easy implementation of the infrastructure, allows you to analyze data from sensors measuring vibrations frequencies of machines and equipment in order to detect anomalous behavior, therefore enabling industrial end customers to decrease machines shutdowns and work accidents while increasing performance and safety.

Users get a very precise machine status prediction, and prediction model retraining that refines the model while repositioning the sensor or refining the model performance.

Moreover, the most important feature designed ad hoc for the new solution is that it now acts proactively based on the future state of the machine, instead of carrying out routine inspections, preventing machine faults in advance. With the finetuned pre-trained model, users can expect to gain the inference result within two weeks of sensor installation.

Using this solution means joining the Industrial Revolution 4.0, and therefore ensuring longer lifespan of equipment, lower spare parts inventory, and having more cost-effective than run-to-failure or planned maintenance.

Applying the solution in an infinite number of use cases  

Thanks to Predictive Maintenance Solution it was possible to overview all types of machines in one-stop, in real-time getting also the machine’s historical and future status. It can be used on petrochemical plants, PCB plants, Semiconductor Manufacturing Plants, and so much more.

One of the most successful use cases is the rotating manufacturing machinery management in steel plants. In this specific industry, the failure of the manufacturing machine will seriously affect the product line, that is the reason why it is extremely important to prevent unexpected breakdown.

How Advantech – Predictive Maintenance Solution Works?  

  • Pretrained model implementation – The model is trained on a large benchmark dataset to solve a problem like the one that the customer wants to solve, so thanks to that, our solution, can automatically analyze the data preprocessing, feature value selection, and deep learning model processes.

  • Degrading level – The degrading level indicates the machine’s rotating signal status compared to a healthy device. To establish an efficient maintenance strategy, the operators could set the index threshold based on the experts’ experience.

  • ISO 10816 – gives general guidelines for the evaluation of machine vibration by measurements on non-rotating parts. This part of ISO 10816, however, establishes special procedures and guidelines for the measurement and classification of mechanical vibration of reciprocating compressors. Using multi-indexes, you can monitor your machine and keep an eye on your production line.

Integrating low-power IoT tracking in the alert system for people needing assistance  

Novalink found an ideal partner in Abeeway, so that novaalert could enable a variety of solutions in the healthcare sector, more specifically for psychiatric hospitals, retirement homes and nursing homes for dementia patients.

People suffering from dementia have a reduced ability to remember, think or make decisions that interferes with the performance of daily activities, that’s why, thanks to the combination between novaalert mobileAPP and Abeeway Micro Trackers missing people, affected by the mentioned disease, can be found easily and quickly.

The Abeeway Micro Tracker is a multi-mode tracker with embedded sensors for accurate outdoor and indoor geolocation. With its small size and long battery life up to a year on a single charge, the Abeeway Micro Tracker enables people to be located indoors via Bluetooth Beacons and outdoors via GPS, and it uses LoRaWAN connectivity. This widely used wireless protocol allows battery-powered sensors to communicate with IoT applications via a long-range, ultra-low data rate connection, resulting in longer battery life.

Another important functionality is the versatility of the research of the missing person that can be automatic or manual.  Automated detection is possible via a combination of GPS Geofence and iBeacon technology, instead, manual searches can also be triggered directly in the novaalert mobileAPP.

Using the Micro Tracker button, a person seeking assistance can trigger an alarm independently thanks to novaalert mobileAPP, the nursing staff receives the alarm message including the tracker’s exact location (indoors and outdoors) and can quickly come to the aid of the person in distress.

This is the reason why novalink chose Abeeway and LoRaWAN® as the necessary technologies for this solution. The safety of people must be considered to ensure the correct performance of the system. Abeeway is a market leader in providing only certified products and providing support when needed, ensuring reliability. LoRaWAN®, on the other hand, allows to locate people and devices both indoors and outdoors and is cheap and reliable.

The sensor reliably records and transmits CO2 values

Optimization of air quality is crucial for healthy and productive working conditions

Covid-19 has dramatically changed our lives, we have changed our lifestyles, spending more time in our homes being forced to cope with medical emergencies, therefore it has become increasingly important to monitor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).

The concentration of CO2 is an important indicator of air quality. The higher the CO2 value in a building, the less comfortable it is for the people who live there. CO2 concentrations rise rapidly in poorly ventilated rooms.

The EU Royal Decree of 2 May 2019 well-being code at work on indoor air quality establishes that the employer must take the necessary technical and/or organizational measures to ensure that CO2 concentrations in the workplace are less than 900 ppm.

According to scientific research, improving IAQ is as effective as vaccinating 50-60% of the population in reducing aerosol transmission. Carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (PM), humidity, and temperature monitoring necessitate the installation of sensors in facilities that do not typically rely on pre-existing wiring for this purpose. These installations are facilitated by wireless IoT networks such as LoRaWAN. It is the ideal technology network to meet these requirements.

LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) is an open standard connectivity technology that has proven to be a market leader for smart applications, delivering solutions that are easy to scale, optimize operational costs, and reduce utility waste. LoRaWAN enables the use of its extremely long-range and low-power capabilities to cover thousands of kilometers at a low cost, particularly in remote and difficult-to-reach areas, and to install devices that provide data in real time while lasting for years on a single battery charge.

Key Solution Features:

  • Sensor design: clean and modern design, which makes it discrete in both business and home environments.
  • Ease of use: A wireless and battery-based sensor provides the conditions for its users to perform the tasks safely, effectively, and efficiently while enjoying the experience.
  • Adaptability: Scalable and tailor-made solution: An adapted kit to any indoor industrial environment such as warehouses storage, retail, offices, and much more.
  • Low-power and low-cost: LoRaWAN long-range technology allows easy installation and the ability to monitor sensors in a very large area with low infrastructure cost.

Data-driven management: Efficiency gain: stand at the threshold of our shared indoor spaces, and answer new questions raised: “What is the air quality?” or “Do we need to open a window?”

What you will find in the kit:

Zenner CO2 sensor

Zenner CO2 Indicator L868 ID A Sensor

A sophisticated designed Zenner Sensor

A compact indoor EU868 LoRaWAN radio sensor for measuring the CO2 content of indoor air. With the integrated display and the color-changing LED display, the sensor always provides real-time information about the current CO2 value, the battery level, and the status of the connection.

Eutelsat Connects Its LoRaWAN Network to ThingPark Exchange Roaming Hub

Press Release – Paris, France – September 12, 2022

Eutelsat, the world’s leading provider of space IoT connectivity, and Actility, the world leader in Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LPWAN) industrial-grade connectivity solutions, have partnered up in order to make life easier for their users by integrating terrestrial and satellite LoRaWAN IoT connectivity and merging IoT data into a single platform. 

Whether from Space or Earth, customers can now receive aggregated IoT data seamlessly from Eutelsat or any LoRaWAN® operator connected to ThingPark Exchange, such as National Narrowband Network Company (NNNCo), the operator of the Australian national LoRaWAN® network powered by Actility.  

Satellite networks can provide planet-wide coverage, complementing terrestrial networks both domestically and abroad. This will also help address coverage discrepancies in rural areas and shipping lanes and provide connectivity for critical mission IoT use, in areas such as oil & gas, telecom, logistics, government & security, agriculture and transportation.  

ThingPark Exchange, the industry’s first global LoRaWAN® peering hub, already connects over 20 LoRaWAN® networks worldwide. Forming the LPWAN backbone, ThingPark Exchange interconnects multiple public, private, and community networks, both on-ground and via satellite. 

Ubiquitous coverage with innovative, hybrid LPWAN connectivity via satellite

As LPWA networks rely on terrestrial gateways, coverage is a major issue for many IoT uses. Across all industries, many enterprises still do not have access to a global, reliable IoT connectivity service, unable to reach remote assets due to erratic or insufficient coverage, as traditional connectivity solutions are too complex or prohibitively expensive.

With Eutelsat’s innovative Low Earth Orbit (LEO) service based on a fleet of nano satellites, Eutelsat will provide one of the largest space networks for IoT. This LEO satellite IoT service is fully compatible with the LoRaWAN standard. The service integrates seamlessly into existing LPWAN infrastructures, without the need to invest in additional gateways, extending LPWA networks across the globe and enabling devices to transmit data irrespective of their location. Complementing terrestrial networks, they provide satellite links anywhere in the world.

When coverage gaps are identified, LoRaWAN-based IoT sensors will seamlessly move from a terrestrial LoRaWAN network to LEO-based one. Connected to ThingPark Exchange, LoRaWAN terrestrial connectivity providers will enable Eutelsat’s satellite coverage through its “extended coverage” services that also serve partner networks, such as crowd-sourced network Helium, another Actility partner.

This enhanced network coverage will pave the way for many new industries in areas such as oil & gas, telecoms, transportation, agriculture, and emergency support. Use cases include fixed asset and infrastructure monitoring, such as pipelines, pylons, sub-stations, greenhouses, or dams; and mobile asset tracking and monitoring, such as pallets, shipping containers, trailers, livestock or food supplies. Connecting remote assets helps to increase safety and productivity, reduce costs, and create new revenue streams.

 Through the partnerhsip with Eutelsat, Actility’s ThingPark is providing a ready-to-use platform to manage hybrid connectivity, and the required integration to application platforms. The data can then flow into many of the major cloud IoT platforms connected to Actility’s ThingPark – Microsoft Azure, AWS IoT Core, Cumulocity, PTC Thingworx and more.

Troverlo and Actility Collaborate on Low-Cost Trackers Compatible with Abeeway LoRaWAN Tags

Press Release – Paris, France & College Station, Texas, USA – 10 August 2022

Troverlo, Actility, and its subsidiary Abeeway have collaborated to provide a low-cost tracking device that can be read by Abeeway LoRaWAN® trackers.

Moreover, the Troverlo Host Powered Tag is now available on ThingPark Market, the leading IoT B2B marketplace, powered by Actility. 

The integrated tag, powered by Troverlo, enables customers to gain more value from their Actility gateways and Abeeway tags by tracking assets that may not have been feasible to track due to cost limitations. As a result, this solution increases the scale and value of existing LoRaWAN systems by providing data from dozens of other tags nearby at a fraction of the price.

Troverlo device
Troverlo infographics

Troverlo tags use a standard Wi-Fi chip to send out a beacon, similar to a Wi-Fi access point, that can be picked up by any device looking for a Wi-Fi connection. This works seamlessly with Abeeway LoRaWAN trackers due to their built-in Wi-Fi sniffing capabilities.

The Abeeway tracker “sees” Troverlo tags and report back their location and sensor data through the connected LoRaWAN gateway and ThinkParkX Location Engine. Troverlo tags only require a standard off-the-shelf Wi-Fi chip to be effective which means they can come in many form factors – from standalone battery powered tags to embedded tags built into equipment/products.

System of Troverlo system

In addition, these low-cost Troverlo tags are automatically tracked outside of LoRaWAN connectivity through the Troverlo Global Observation Network. This means if a tracked asset leaves the LoRaWAN area, it will be tracked anywhere on the globe without any additional connectivity required.

Troverlo’s Global Observation Network consists of connected devices like cell phones, Wi-Fi access points, and telematic solutions.  When compared to other connection methods, like LTE, Troverlo tags can be tracked for one tenth the price which removes the cost barrier for many tracking applications.

The Troverlo/Abeeway solution can be applied across any Actility implementation. Below are just a few of the many use cases this solution provides value:

Livestock Management

Abeeway gives ranchers the ability to monitor their livestock to identify abnormal behavior or locations. However, with relatively low margins not all ranchers can afford to track each animal. Today, ranchers track groups of animals by placing an Abeeway tracker on one animal in the group to reduce costs while maintaining visibility into the group. With the addition of Troverlo tags, ranchers can now track each animal and use the existing Abeeway trackers to backhaul the data.

Image of Troverlo cattle

Logistics and Transportation

Abeeway provides logistics providers and their customers visibility into vehicle movement across the supply chain. With Troverlo tags, now every pallet or product being shipped can be tracked as it moves from the warehouse, to the truck, to the customer site. Troverlo tags enable Abeeway fleet management to scale into more granular tracking of product movement.

The Actility and Troverlo partnership opens up tracking opportunities across many industries.

“The Troverlo partnership with Actility enables both companies to solve our customers’ problems with a stronger solution. For Troverlo, our tags now seamlessly integrate into LoRaWAN deployments which increases the value our customers see from additional tracking and sensor data.

said Cody Catalena, CEO of Troverlo.

“Abeeway multi-technology highly configurable and long-battery devices are a perfect match for Troverlo’s offering.  Together we will address a large variety of IoT tracking use cases, allowing our customers to benefit from an efficient solution, easy and quick to deploy thanks to the prebuilt integration in between the hardware, the network software and the end application”

Domitys implements residents' safety IoT solution with Life Plus and Actility

Press Release – Paris, France – July 19th, 2022

Domitys, the largest French management group of senior residences, has deployed an assistance and frailty prevention IoT solution in its “Domaine de Grand Baie” residence in Mauritius, to remotely monitor patients’ safety through features like fall detection, location and health state. The solution is using smart watches provided by Life Plus, connected via a private LoRaWAN network, powered by Actility.

Life Plus, a leading European provider of support and remote patient monitoring solutions, improves the well-being and health of thousands of people over 65 with modular solutions, from assistance to frailty prevention and telemonitoring.

Using Actility’s ThingPark Enterprise IoT platform Life Plus deployed a private LoRaWAN® network to cover the whole Domitys facility, composed of 2 buildings with 120 apartments each consisting of 2 to 3 rooms. 8 gateways have been installed – 6 indoors and 2 outdoors – to make sure the network covers all locations: apartments, elevators, and surrounding outdoor areas, creating 10 kilometers-wide coverage bubble around the residence, thus ensuring continuous functioning of the solution to secure residents at all places, avoiding autonomy loss and helping the staff in their day-to-day work.

A demo kit is now available for purchase on ThingPark Market , the leading IoT B2B marketplace, powered by Actility.

In search of a non-intrusive and non-stigmatizing solution for the elderly

There are over 665 million people over 65 in the world today. The number will rise to 2 billion by 2050. It’s considered that most of them – 85% – is willing to stay at their homes. On the other side, caregivers are often far from their relatives and overwhelmed by day-to-day support. Most of the currently available devices and solutions are only concerning assistance (SOS and falls) and are stigmatizing, with low use rate and outdated design. Prevention, which is key to allowing the elderly to age well, especially at home, is not industrialized yet. Life Plus is aiming to solve this issue with a very easy to use solution, including assistance and prevention. 

With more than 150 residences and 13,000 residents, Domitys is the leader in its sector in France and a key player in the Silver Economy in France. The Group also manages 5 residences in Belgium, Italy and Mauritius, currently expanding internationally with new residences under construction in Spain, Portugal, Germany but also in China, Malaysia and Thailand.

At its facility Domaine du Grand Baie in Mauritius, the group wanted to secure the residents and to help maintain their autonomy, thanks to a modern and non-stigmatizing solution, ensuring its good functioning with ubiquitous connectivity where no public LoRAWAN network is available. They find the right solution with Life Plus.

Now, residents from the “Domaine du Grand Baie” wear a smartwatch; thanks to that, the staff from the residence is noticed as soon as something goes wrong (fall, unusual activity,…) or if the resident sends an SOS. The smartwatch is customizable to fit elderly preferences (dial, bracelet, display). Thanks to this possibility, the smartwatch is not stigmatizing and residents like wearing it.

Life Plus solutions have been co-created with real users: seniors, caregivers, geriatricians, general practitioners, physiotherapists, dietitians, neuropsychologists. It allowed to achieve an easy-to-use device with a customizable design and has a great usage rate: 87% of residents use it every day. Within the facility, small beacons are placed in apartments and shared areas, for the system to precisely localize residents inside the building, in a non-intrusive way, and only in case of problems.

Multi-function IoT devices to prevent senior citizens from becoming frail

Dona Care is a cloud solution, based on data and software service. Thanks to a personalized smartwatch and a digital platform, it secures people and helps caregivers in their day-to-day tasks by providing automatic fall detection, SOS call, unusual schedule (an extended stay in a room for instance), location (indoor and outdoor, communicated only in case of problem), customized coaching, automatic data transmission (health measures, activity).

Smartwatch Dona Care by Life Plus allows you to automatically alert in case of fall or any other anomaly. Through the Life Plus application, teams have access to statistics that can ease the follow-up of events like wanderings and falls, and directly alert them in case of unusual or dangerous situations. They have a full traceability of alerts as everything is centralized on the application.

Moreover, it helps maintain residents’ autonomy, too. Residents are motivated to exercise more thanks to a personalized coaching focused on physical activity: walking and active walking durations, number of steps, and a daily walking goal that can be set up, pushing them to achieve it. This program can be extended to cognition activities and nutrition advice too, to support caregivers and help maintain autonomy.

Life Plus solutions allow to:

  • Secure residents and reassure relatives too
  • Offer serenity to the managing staff
  • Save time (to the staff) thanks to the resident localization in case of emergency
  • Motivate residents with activity coaching
  • Ensure ubiquitous connectivity everywhere thanks to LoRAWAN technology and Actility’s platform

“Initially included in an invitation to tender for the replacement of our old solution, Life Plus offered us the most complete and innovative solution among all its competitors. The Dona Care solution is perfectly suited to our senior facilities because it can cover our needs both for those under construction, as Domaine du Grand Baie, and for those already in operation without foreseeing major construction sites. The well-being and quality of life of our residents are top priorities for Domitys. Our residents are reassured thanks to Dona Care because in the event of an alert, the team can intervene quickly. In terms of functionality, it provides us with the precise location of the alert on the map of our establishment or outside, offers a fall detection algorithm, activity monitoring, etc. Finally, the design of the watch: it is not stigmatizing like most other medallion solutions. For our residents, it is customizable and very pretty, which allows it to be considered as a fashion accessory”

explains Cédric Schoindre, Innovation and collaborative IT manager at Domitys.

Unlike our projects in France where there is a public LoRaWAN network available provided by Orange, in Mauritius it was necessary to create a private LoRaWAN bubble to ensure coverage of our apartment building and its surroundings, over a diameter of approximately 10 km. For the deployment in the residence Life Plus communicated in advance the prerequisites necessary for the deployment of the solution, to be considered during the construction site:

  • 1 category 6a RJ45 socket at each interior equipment (LoRa gateway and update terminal). This equipment (LoRa gateway and WUG) is installed in the common areas of the senior residence. Their locations have been studied to ensure the best performance of the installation while considering aesthetic constraints.
  • 1 RJ45 socket and 1 mast on the terrace for each outdoor antenna creating the LoRa bubble
  • Bluetooth location beacons do not require wiring and are battery operated. This therefore brings flexibility in their positioning in all rooms and in the hotel park, and the most discreet integration possible.

“Active equipment is connected to the building internal network administered by the group’s IT teams. Life Plus has therefore configured its equipment on a dedicated virtual network and communicated the configuration elements necessary for our settings (MAC addresses, firewall). Life Plus also assisted us with customs procedures in Mauritius and thus enabled the rapid importation of equipment. Thanks to these preparatory phases, the deployment by Life Plus of the solution took place under the best conditions and the commissioning was carried out easily. The implementation of the private LoRaWAN bubble is effective and thus ensures the safety of our senior customers who have subscribed to this remote assistance watch solution.”

explained Guillaume Gasser, IT & low voltage equipements manager at Domitys.

“Security is the most important thing for our clients. The watch is nice looking, light and it is kept on the wrist 24 hours a day. Il activates itself only when needed or in case of a fall for example. The processing of alerts is simple for our team, alerts are easily localized due to multiple beacons ensuring a rapid and precise intervention.
