LoRaWAN is awesome. Small, mostly low cost, battery-powered sensor devices using an open frequency band, that can be considered as WiFi, except with a greater range and much lower power consumption.
But what is missing is the end-to-end solution.
Device manufacturers, gateways, network servers, and various platforms are all available. But the connection between these elements often requires experience in programming and IT technology. This is time-consuming, often frustrating, and requires skilled staff, special tools, and expertise.
To solve this, Datacake delivers an end-to-end solution out of the box, from device templates and network support to the deployment of a smartphone application where users only need to scan QR codes on LoRaWAN devices to get started.
Select LoRaWAN Device Template
When you create a new device on Datacake, you can select a predefined template. We offer ready-to-use templates for many devices.
Choose LoRaWAN Network Server
Next, select the desired LoRaWAN network server that your device uses. You can also use a Datacake LNS, so you do not need to set up your own network server.
Enter DevEUI or Scan QR-Code
Your LoRaWAN Device will be added to Datacake and Dashboard will be created according to the selected Template.
Use Templates as a starting point or create your own Dashboards using an intuitive Drag and Drop Editor.
Datacake delivers out-of-the-box notifications via email, SMS, or push. Define rules for alerts based on our IFTTT style rule engine.
Messages from your LoRaWAN Devices will be stored in our database. Different pricing plans allow for different levels of data retention.
Bring your LoRaWAN Devices onto your smartphone with the free Datacake App available for both iOS and Android.
Data from LoRaWAN devices is sent in real-time through our public MQTT Broker. Your services can subscribe to them at any time.
Members and Permissions
Invite employees or customers via email or create tokens via API users and dynamically assign rights and roles via Datacake teams.
Thanks to the integrated editor for payload encoding, you can create any device - even your own developments, for example. Best of all, once you have successfully created the device, we can make it available to everyone in our database!
