Online PR News – 20-October-2017 – Lisbon, October 18th, 2017 – The Loka device was awarded one of the prizes at the 2017 IoT Challenge, sponsored by Altice-PT. Loka Systems has positioned itself as a global player in the IoT market, by developing a low power, low cost IoT solution with exciting expansion capabilities. rnrnThe LOKA multipurpose device is revolutionary in its ability to be both flexible and scalable, as it enables connection of a variety of sensors, that can send out pre-configured notifications. The default firmware enables the LOKA device to be much more than just a tracker: it also monitors temperature and movement. rnAll the configurations and reports are available in a cloud-based, user-friendly Device Manager, that can be accessed through a computer or a mobile phone. So a single device can have a wide range of applications: LOKA Systems chose to partner with Sigfox, as the Sigfox Nework has the world’s lowest cost integrated geolocation function. It uses radio-signal analysis to determine the device’s location, so unlike GPS, the service does not increase power consumption, and requires no extra hardware, beyond the already-integrated Sigfox chip. rnThe combination of Sigfox and Wi-Fi networks require less power for communication and geo-location, enabling LOKA’s device to use two AA batteries that can last up to 5 years. Also, this innovative approach to the hardware, combined with the Sigfox network highly affordable communication plans, and Wi-Fi geo-location, enables substantial savings on the device acquisition and operation.rnrnAbout LOKA SystemsrnLOKA Systems is a joint venture between WND and Thought Creator.
