YieldPoint has completed development of an LTE-M enabled Gateway project and deployed the first projects. The BluPoint LTE gateway can be configured using an Android device using YP’s free BluPoint App. The device uses long range Bluetooth 5 with a range of 100m LOS.
The device is a data-logger(30,000 readings) that can be downloaded wirelessly. The instrument can log data from up to 32 BluPoint instruments (BluLink, BluTilt, BlueWire etc.). The LTE-M link is compatible with cellular providers IoT offerings (in North America, Bell, Telus and Rogers) as well as with proprietary LTE-M networks. The LTE-M Gateway is powered from 4 D-cell batteries and will last for 2 years at a reading upload of 1/hr.
