SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Polysense Technologies Inc., (Polysense) an innovation leader in LPWAN IoT solutions for fiber and wireless sensing, today announced the commercial availability of image and video capturing on its industry leading LoRa®-based WxS end node and iEdge computing platform with patented image and video analysis.
The Polysense WxS 8800 universal sensor node series incorporates Semtech’s (Nasdaq: SMTC) LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) and LoRaWAN™ open standard from the LoRa Alliance™ to support long ranges of 3km to 5km in NLOS (None Line of Sight) urban environments, and over 15km reach in LOS (Line of Sight) open environments. With nine integrated internal sensors and connectivity for an external analog and digital sensor, the WxS 8800 enables a wide range of IoT applications.
“We have multiple customers requesting the image and video capturing capability for our widely used WxS IoT end node product line,” said Alex Wu, President of Polysense. “We listened and responded with an image and video sensor that is low power, offers multiple modes of resolution, and includes night vision capturing and even image/video analysis. For example, an enterprise can install PIR in conference rooms/labs to detect the presence of a person, and then take a picture.”
“Polysense’s technology fills a gap in the current IoT ecosystem and image and video capturing solutions such as this, greatly expand LPWAN use cases in a variety of verticals including asset management and security in smart cities, buildings and homes,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT, Wireless and Sensing Products Group at Semtech. “Semtech’s LoRa Technology has become the technology of choice for building low power and long range IoT applications, and Polysense should play an important role in making our world a smarter planet.”
“We have been using WxS for several use cases and look forward to the new exciting enhancements being added,” said Nick Sacke, head of IoT at Comms365, a leading IoT service provider based in the UK. “The unique combination of low power, night vision, and smart sensor triggering can be valuable for many end user IoT applications.”
Now with the new image and video capture capabilities on WxS 8800, Polysense is the only vendor that provides smart triggered capturing of event detections for applications such as asset protection, perimeter security, and senior care - where image and video are essential.
