Guess some on this forum may find this as challenging as I do: LoraWAN - The Things Network. (Summary in Press release).
It is the beginning of a free fully open sourced Network for Things. A so-called 'democratic' community financed/supported info structure intended for low cost slow sensors.

Really no one triggered by this?
I think it potentially is a very important initiative comparable to people who take their energy production in their own (cooperative) hands.

Hi Peter now I've read it through properly (IMHO it could do with a more simple explanation!) yes it does look quite interesting, I live in a smallish town so potentially I could see it being of use ideally sponsored by the local town council. I think the cost/size of the individual sensors needs to come down a bit, so that it becomes very cheap and easy to tag things - I guess I am thinking of pets, bikes, keys etc....

Be interested to see how they get on.

Hi Pieter, what are your experiences with The Things Network?.

Posted by pierre kil at Mar 31, 2016 08:24

My OpenRemote experiment was quite straight forward and easily done as http pull calls to the TTN Rest API. For ZWay experiment I did use NODE-RED as a man in the middle to push the TTN mqtt to ZWay as udp. May be good more in general for OpenRemote to have a look into supporting mqtt-protocol.
For the moment I've put it on a low burner.

For very good reasons they have decided to abandon the REST API. The only supported protocol is now MQTT.
Unfotunately, this move makes it impossible for OpenRemote to interact with TTN via any of its standard protocols.
