Laird Connectivity works to create fast-moving, flexible work environment attracting employees, who focus on providing accelerated profitable growth, to reach the aim of being the technology behind every innovative and reliable wireless solution by 2025.
For Laird Connectivity, wireless expertise has always been one of the most important aims, having worked on the design of facilities around the world for more than three decades, and helping their clients bring their wireless products alive. The company offers customizable IoT solutions, from user experience to full IoT product development and manufacturing. Laird Connectivity also works on offering the highest performing and reliable products, bringing some of the highest quality antenna and module devices to the industry. Their products fit a wide range of environments and application requirements, and Laird Connectivity is the only manufacturer offering their own on-site EMC testing approvals, which drastically reduces risk and time to market.
Laid Connectivity also has a dedicated FAE and in-house customer support dedicated to assist clients for any of their needs, providing free tier one support, antenna scans, and schematic reviews.
The power of LoRaWAN
Laird Connectivity has created different products offering high-performing and innovative antennas, sensors, and other IoT solutions to bring competency, faster time to market and low risk to customers, using LoRaWAN technology.
LoRaWAN® is a low-power wireless protocol for wide area networks. With LoRaWAN®, devices can communicate with IoT applications over long-range wireless connections. It also allows for devices’ batteries to last longer, therefore significantly lowering the Total Cost of Ownership.
Some of the best IoT sensors on the market have been created by Laird, and we are happy to be able to offer them on our platform.
Temperature Control and Monitoring
Here is our personal 3 favourite products selection:
Measure external temperature through Laird’s External Temperature Probe Sensor for LoRa and Bluetooth. A long-range sensor platform connected to a small device containing superior RF performance and flexibility with a wide-ranging external temperature probe.
The Integrated Temperature Humidity Sensor is another of Laird’s products which offers a long-range integrated sensor platform that profits from the benefits of LoRaWAN and BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) connectivity, offering excellent RF performance, accurate IoT temperature and humidity sensor, and space for future expansions.
Another turnkey solution developed by Laird and Actility is the Food and Safety Cold Chain Management Evaluation Kit, which provides hotels, restaurants and food service providers with the required hardware and software to automate temperature readings at all stages of the cold chain. The solution is frictionless, allowing to not increase constraints on existing equipment, and is also Low-TCO, as LoRaWAN technology enables low-cost sensors with unprecedented battery life, limiting investment while optimizing operating costs.
These devices can be used to monitor cold chain management, food safety, smart agriculture products or industrial heating and cooling, among many other applications, where temperature needs to be continuously monitored and recorded to help control transport and storage conditions of perishable goods, ensuring food safety and regulatory compliance. These devices, allow real-time alerting to act on abnormal situations and avoid waste, also offers the opportunity to save time as temperature readings are fully automated, allowing teams to focus on their jobs while forgetting about the manual procedure.
