LoRaWAN Technology

Our technology uses a long-range wireless system known as LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network), it is a network protocol based on a new wireless technology to communicate up to 15 km in outdoor locations. This technology allows for a low cost way to collect and display remote data. The protocol is a global standard, it is encrypted and highly secure. You can find out more about this technology here:

You will need reliable mobile phone network coverage over some part of your farm for our system to be viable.

Our Services

Mote Net is currently focused at delivery of its Smart Farm System to WA farmers.

We also have diverse skills in other applications for LoRaWAN wireless communication, including sensor development, gateway design, LoRa middleware, backend and website development.
