City Hub Alliance makes connecting all the small things easy and safe

Did you know that in Helsingborg, tiny sensors on objects all around us are tracking everything from air and water temperatures to the position of bicycles?

They also monitor the indoor climates of schools and sports facilities, let trees order water when they need it – and can tell waste services when your recycling bin is full and ready to be collected.

In the smart city, these inexpensive and energy-efficient long range (LoRa) sensors send information and receive instructions through a wireless network called the Open City Hub. Practically anything can be connected – if it makes life in the smart city safer, more efficient, more convenient or just more fun.

The Open City Hub is basically connectivity as a service, open for anyone using LoRa sensors and includes high security with multiple-level encryption to keep the information safe. So, how would you like to use it to improve daily life?

Get help with your ideas and get updates as the network and uses continue to grow at the City Hub Alliance site. Or watch a short movie or read this white paper to learn more about how LoRa sensors and the Internet of Things works.
