The Smart Building Reference Kit (“Kit”) is designed to provide validation of the network coverage within a building, accelerate solution development and facilitate a portable demonstration to a wide range of stakeholders.
By moving the location of the sensors to different spots around the building, users can determine a gateway’s range of coverage.
By relying on readily-available hardware, solution developers can focus on providing customer value through data collection and analysis while using off-the-shelf hardware available from external suppliers.
The self-contained nature of the Kit makes it easy to set up, take down and move the network in a matter of minutes.
All data collected in the Kit is displayed on a dashboard accessible by the user via a browser. The dashboard shows the type of display which can be created with the data collected. The URL for the dashboard and how to locate the log in credentials for your Kit, are explained under the Getting Started section of this User Guide.
Note: The Kit does not allow access to the underlying data directly or the ability to change the LoRaWAN-enabled network server (LNS) to which the gateways are connected. If those are desired requirements, please contact Semtech at SBKSales@semtech.com.
Additionally, users may separately access a dashboard that shows a permanent installation of a Kit inside an office facility. This provides the user with a rich set of historical data to use in demonstrations. To access this dashboard, log in to the following site, using the credentials below:
The data in each dashboard is stored for a maximum of 30 days.
