Empowering Building Energy Restrofitting


LoRaWAN is a Media Access Control (MAC) layer protocol built on top of LoRa modulation. It is a software layer which defines how devices use the LoRa hardware, for example when they transmit, and the format of messages.

The Things Network is powered by The Things Stack, which is a LoRaWAN network server that receives messages from LoRaWAN devices. Try it and get started building for free here.
