In the report “Digital in die Zukunft: Darmstadt ist deutschlandweiter Vorreiter” on RTL, city of Darmstadt showed our Ultrasonic Distance Sensor with LoRaWAN in the field. Our devices are used by the city for flood warning and help making maintenance more efficient in their water channels and sewer system.
Looking back to a great Swisscom IoT Day 2019! A great ambiance and a lot of inspiring talks and discussions. It was a great opportunity to showcase our newly released Indoor Ambiance Monitor with #LoRaWAN measuring all relevant parameters for indoor and building automation
Results of @AIRLAB_Airparif Challenge for our Indoor Ambiance Monitor with CO2, TVOC, Motion/Activity, Hum, Temp, Air Pressure, Illuminance communicating over LoRaWAN. And we continuously work on it to improve! Full report at http://www.airlab.solutions/sites/default/files/20181114_Resultats_Tous_Capteurs.pdf …
We have been awarded by @AIRLAB_Airparif @Airparif for our Indoor Ambiance Monitor capturing CO2, TVOC, Illuminance, Motion, Temperature, Humidity, and Barometric Pressure and sends data over LoRaWAN in the category "Sensibilation sur la qualité de l'air intérieur".

Last Friday, 08-Jun-2018, we recorded a heavy rain event in Dübendorf. In parallel, precipitation and the level of the River Chriesbach were recorded. In only half an hour an amount of 30 millimeter rainfall has been recorded. Nearby river levels raised by1 meter in only 1.5 hours and flooded the walkways!
All measurements realized with our rain gauge and ultrasonic level meter sending data over LoRaWAN to our cloud infrastructure. Precipitation data provided by Eawag (absolute rain depths are still subject to verification).
On 24th May Decentlab was featured in Einstein on SRF1. Two relevant projects in research, Carbosense/swiss.co2.live, initiated by Empa, Swisscom and Decentlab and the Urban Water Observatory of Eawag and ETHZ were presented. We are in both projects the main partner for the LoRaWAN based instruments and data services.
The whole program Einstein of that day was dedicated to Internet of Things with a special focus on LoRaWAN.
Reinhard, CEO of Actility's device maker partner Decentlab in Switzerland, demonstrates his LoRaWAN multi-sensor device for air quality monitoring. It monitors outdoors pollution abut also indoor air quality , temperature, humidity...
Kaltluftseen.ch, an initiative by Stephan Vogt, measured in the night of 13th February at Hintergräppelen -33.19 °C with our temperature and humdity sensor with LoRaWAN data transmission. We are looking forward to even lower temperatures!

In the news
We monitor for WSL, Hydrological Forecasts snow level for monitoring of a catchment with a variant of our Level/Displacement Sensor using an ultrasonic sensor. Beginning of this week we caught first snow fall measurements and now we can observe how it melts down or more layers of snow will add up on the cover over the next weeks and months.
Kaltluftseen.ch, an initiative by Stephan Vogt, monitors frost hollows in Switzerland. In this season he started to use Decentlab's air temperature and relative humidity with radiation shield (LoRaWAN) and the Data Access platform to monitor Hintergräppelen, a promising site to reach lowest temperatures in Switzerland.
On Tuesday morning we recorded a new minimum of this season with -21.89 °C. We are looking forward for a really cold winter.
LoRaWAN network by Swisscom LPN
One full year of soil moisture, electrical conductivity and temperature data sent over public LoRaWAN network from 3 locations in Switzerland.
Measurement and transmission interval: 10 minutes
Battery usage: 10%
LoRaWAN network: The Things Network Switzerland
Applications: Monitor and Control Irrigation Events in Nursery and Greenhouse Applications and Research
Switzerland is to gain a dense, globally unique CO2 measuring network: 300 sensors permanently collect up-to-date readings, which form the basis for atmospheric dispersion models that are being developed at Empa.

Zeitschrift WOHNEN published a report about LoRaWAN. It gives an introduction to LoRaWAN and highlights several use cases including Carbosense. Illustrations for the report show our devices in action. Read full report
Visit us on 14th June at LoRa Alliance All Members Meeting in 3rd Floor Franklin Institute, Philadelphia. See you there.
Since mid of April Empa, Laboratory for Air Pollution / Environmental Technology, operates our LoRaWAN CO2 sensors next to their Nabel reference site to conduct outdoor calibration. The devices transmit readings over Swisscom LPN, based on LoRaWAN technology. In the next months we will roll out more than 300 CO2 sensors over whole Switzerland.

Check out our new demo together with OrbiWise. OrbiWise provides a full network software solution for LoRaWAN-based networks. Our sensors and application server fits perfectly in combination with the network server from our partner. The demo shows a piezoresistive pressure and temperature sensor for level metering applications like water supply, waste water, ground water or surface water.
