According to a recent announcement, several of Semtech’s customers, including CIAAIoT, EasyLinkin, IOCA, RisingHF, and Winext Technology, have integrated the company’s LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol with Cloud-based platforms developed by Alibaba Cloud and Tencent Cloud, with the goal of deploying smarter IoT-based monitoring applications for residents in quarantine scenarios.

These solutions are designed to provide healthcare workers with data and insight into community health, allowing more optimized workflows for the distribution of efficient healthcare services during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

CIAAIoT and EasyLinkin reportedly integrated LoRa-based magnetic door sensors with Alibaba Cloud's Cloud-based application development platform and services to create a “smart doorkeeper” solution for efficient building monitoring. IOCA, RisingHF and Winext Technology collaborated with Tencent Cloud, according to the release, to leverage its LoRa-based door sensors in a new Cloud-based door seal monitoring solution. These products have been deployed into the residential communities of China’s Hubei province, as well as Chengdu, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Zhengzhou.

“Smarter technologies and IoT applications play an important role in providing high quality health services during COVID-19. Semtech’s LoRa devices and LoRaWAN protocol provide an easy to use and deploy solution to quickly connect systems and provide optimized, effective healthcare in communities,” said Mike Wong, VP, China Sales, Semtech.
