Abstract [en]

Many conventional forms of communication technology, such as Wi-Fi, 3G/4G or cable, require a lot of power. For battery powered devices that need to last a long time on a single charge, one alternative is the low-power, long range technology LoRaWAN.

This thesis tries to answer the question how well do the properties of LoRaWAN meet the requirements for a battery powered security solution? Two identical prototype remote motion detectors were implemented for this purpose. The results show that while the prototypes do not meet the requirements for energy efficiency, LoRaWAN as a technology easily does. The results shows that if a solution to the reliability issues can be found, LoRaWAN would be well suited for battery powered security solutions.

Abstract [sv]

Många vanliga teknologier som används för kommunikation, så som Wi-Fi, 3G/4G eller fiber, kan vara väldigt strömkrävande. Ett alternativ för batteridrivna enheter som behöver kunna klara sig på en laddning under lång tid, är att använda en lågenergiteknologi med lång räckvidd LoRaWAN.

Den här rapporten försöker att besvara frågan om hur väl LoRaWANs egenskaper tillgodoser de krav som ställs på batteridrivna säkerhetslösningar. För detta ändamål utvecklades två identiska prototyper av en batteridriven rörelsesensor. Resultaten visar på att även om prototyperna inte möter energikonsumptionskraven, så gör själva LoRaWAN-tekniken detta. Resultaten visar att om man kan hitta lösningar på problemen med pålitligheten hos LoRaWAN, så kan LoRaWAN mycket väl vara lämpligt för batteridrivna säkerhetslösningar.
