– assembled meters collected by the sub-contractor for installation.
- The sub-contractor fitted four activated Talkpool OY1310 Single-jet LoRaWAN Smart Water Meters, at rural agriculture sites in Northumberland, Northern England and in the Scottish Border.
Carbon Counter followed the installer round to install appropriate LoRaWAN gateways. Fortunately, all the sites had wifi, so the TNN Indoor Gateway Pro Version
was suitable for data collection.
As standard Carbon Counter configure gateways as public and visible.
The reason is curiosity about the background LoRaWAN traffic in the neighbourhood (and a little extra traffic helps keep the gateways visible). Can confirm there wasn’t any LoRaWAN detected in Ewart Newton, Peelrig or Adderstone.
Also, if the end-client wants to try other LoRaWAN devices, there are many for agricultural settings, the gateway is ready.
Before leaving each site, was possible to confirm data packets were received into TNN v.3 from the water meters.
– Developer, who was on standby notice about the task, decoded the data packets. The location data sets were added into BlueSkies AMR data portal.
